A solid paper from APP Enroute was used as the foundation of the page. The text paper from APP Patriarch was changed to black and white with the brightness and contrast increased. Using the polygonal lasso tool sections of the paper were cut out to create the tree trunks. Branches from Twiggy 1 were added along with curled paper sections. An artistic cutout filter was applied to the bird and the colors were adjusted using the hue/saturation tool. Brushes were stamped on the tree bases to add more texture. A variety of multiMedia elements were added to create the leaves. The page was completed by adding more brushes, stitching, word art and dimensional embellishments.
