The photo of the apple was processed in the iPhone app Prisma (Golden Hour with a frame added) and imported to PSE. I played with hue/saturation adjustment to increase the green colors. A solid paper from APP Moorlands was used as the foundation. Solid paper 1 from APP Lost was layered above it with the blending mode changed to linear burn to increase the intensity of the green. The image was clipped to a resized 12x12 Page FotoBlendz mask. The photo was duplicated several times with the blending mode changed to hard light with a reduced opacity. Brush 6 from Typewriters 1 was layered over the image. The words of the brush were recolored red by isolating them using the rectangular marquee. The bottom half of the brush was recolored a green. The brush was duplicated 2 more times with the blending modes changed to hard light and color burn (reduced opacity). The apples leaves were extracted from a photo I took with a custom shadow added. A word transfers was clipped to the leaves (blending mode hard light). A stitched leaf was added. The page was completed by adding word art and dimensional embellishments.

Thank you for looking!

I love love love it. The strong contrasts, the leaves, the big title. Great direction for you to try.
So much to look at Miki - love it though - great Apple page. I especially love the large vertical Apple title.
From far away you can tell it's about apples, then up close so many more apple details - I like the title, subtle at first, then oh, it's actually right in my face. Fun work!
I am totally digging the abstract, graphic vibe going on. It's perfectly balanced.
