Baby Bath

Baby Bath

In this layout I used everything from the new Sayonara collection except the template--I was going for a textured-ish look for my photo, but changed gears about the texture on the skin after I saw it. I compromised by laying down an artsy paper, blending in the photo using color burn mode, adding a solid light paper underneath the artsy paper, and masking away certain artsy areas to restore the baby's skin tones. I corrected any leftover color-burn effect by duplicating the photo on normal blend mode and masking around that so only the normal skin tones remained. Because the eyes got greenish somewhere along the way, I wound up repeating this move to restore a closer eye color. I'm sure there's an easier way to do this, but I work on an old version of Photoshop Elements so there's that. I placed two multimedia Magicsprinklez clusters around the word cluster to reinforce the vertical nature of the layout. To finish, I applied Artsy Paper No 1 as an overlay, on multiply blend mode at reduced opacity, again masking out wherever the paper overlay texturized the baby.

Look at him looking so alert!! Wonderful focal photo, nice of the holder to wear a matching shirt, makes your job easier - ha ha! the vertical clusters look splendid!
OH! He looks like baby yoda! And I kept trying to figure out how you got rid of dad's head, then I saw his feet! LOL! Great explanation of your process.
He's adorable! I love how you managed that textured look while keeping the colour of the baby's skin - I love it!
