Life is Good

Life is Good

Text Reads: Our first time visiting Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge was a wonderful experience! Unfortunately, we were only allowed to drive the autoroute at this time of the year without getting to hike, but right off the bat, we saw Ring-necked Ducks, a species we had never seen before. March 19, 2023

Construction: I started with ArtPlay Palette Impressario Solid Paper #3, duplicating and using blend mode Linear Burn. I placed the Wood Window Frame, grouped the masks and clipped my one photo to the group. I changed the frame’s blend mode to Screen, duplicated and used Soft Light.
I added numerous transfers from the palette with a slight Hue/Saturation adjustments to better match the blue on the duck’s bills.
I added gold paint, lace, script and splatters from the palette.
The elements are all from the palette, some with a slight Hue/Saturation adjustment.
I added the Button Threadz No 6 #6 to the button on the left.
The Impressario Word Art “Good” was revised by using blending modes Screen, duplicated with Overlay. I moved the text “Life is” and changed the fill color to white.

Great shot of the male Ring-necked Ducks and love the frame you used. Congrats on seeing a new bird! Totally lovely page.
Love the use of the frame, and duck bills to match the palette ;-) Really nice use of the palette!
Love how you used the frame. I haven't had much luck with it yet. Beautiful setting for the ducks.
A very beautiful layout!! The frame works perfectly with the nature photo, and what a wonderful sight to see these ducks, and get a photo!
