Process notes for Photoshop Elements 14:
My idea was to collage three photos from a music festival that my son attended while studying in Hong Kong for a semester. I selected Artsy Paper #4 for my base, pulled in all the photos, then started blending. I began with the focal photomy son jumping in front of a music festival bannerand soon realized that inverse masking gave me the best look. I blended the other two photos (a snapshot of the festival rules and some neon staging) the same way.

I had a lot of fun with the background, pulling in many transfers and overlays and doing a lot of brushwork. But the colors soon became quite riotous and to tone it all down, I had the idea of making a desaturated copy of the layer stack and then bringing back the color selectively. To do this, I duplicated the file, flattened it, desaturated it, then dragged it back in, using a layer mask to remove areas where I wanted the color to come back through.

To finish off the layout I added word art, tape, and a few embellishments from the Artplay Palette. I also deconstructed parts of the MultiMedia Frames to grab Threadz, buttons, and some texture. Lastly I added the page overlay for some grunge.
Fabulous! I love the colors and energy in this page, and the different fonts are perfect! Great extraction of your son! l love the way you brought the color back in selectively, it really highlights his photo.
Ditto on everything that Amy has written--the energy exudes from the page--finding more elements the longer I study the page.
Very awesome! So full of energy, color, and vibrant color! Love your work!
Laura, I just knew you would 'go to town' with this APP... and you did! DYNAMIC layout in every sense! Great title too!
