Inspiration – I had a friend visiting me this month and took her to some of my favorite photo spots. She is a photographer too. The first day we visited 5 dams. I knew at some point I would create a page with some of my photos from that day.
Start-File>Artsy Layered Template 227. Turned off all layers but the frames.
Paper – Placed Solid Paper 2 above the background Layer and with the grey background of the template used blend mode Overlay to soften the colors and print.
Transfers – I placed Artsy Transfer in the upper left corner of the page. I put Overlay2 in the lower left corner of the page.
Photos – I attached a copy of two photo to the mask layer of the frames using Layer>Create Clipping Mask. The focal photo of the page is attached to the Paint Cream layer of the Artsy Transfer.
Frame – Placed Artstroke Frame 6 above the Focal Photo.
Elements title cluster -I started with the Key, added the tape and above that a word strip, used an Urbanthreadz to connect to the WordArt wood word “Story” and nestled the flower in the curve of the word. I used a solid color layer with an overlay blend mode to match the color of the flower to the focal photo.
Brush – aligned two copies of brush 8 with straight lines in the focal photo.
Journaling – The best thing about a rainy spring is that it means the water flowing over the dams will be strong and make for some great photos. I took a friend to 5 dams one morning and each was a thing of beauty.
