Process: I dont really like self portraits, but that was the focus of CY365 this week, so I tried! I may change it if I can get a better photo!! I first placed all the layers of the artsy template on a new 24x12 page document. Next I dragged solid paper_5 from the APP onto the document and created a mask of the slanted paper. To that I clipped my self-portrait and blended out parts so that the original paper below the photo showed through. I changed the small photos to black and white and then clipped them to the small frames. Next, I dragged the layers of Simple FotoBlendz No. 1, template 15 to the right side of the spread. I used some of the stains and textures, but substituted a large square frame for the fotoblendz mask in order to accommodate the photo. It simply didnt work to blend into a mask. Then I placed some layers from artsy transfer_4 above the framed photo to add interest and a few below to add to my foundation. I then placed some overlays from the AAP. I placed some stains and splatters from one of the .psd multimedia star files below the frames. Finally, I added my journaling, a few elements and a title.
Wow. Just wow. How can a palette that's so neutral be so alive? (Love the journaling, too.)
Another great use for that Aspera paper! Lovely self-portrait, and yes, don't we all look that way these days with our iPhones in hand :) Love the blue accents, great start on the year, I look forward to this year's book!
I can identify with your dislike of self-portraits... I just don't look like I want..lol. Love your frank journaling and I like the neutral selections of your beautiful pages!!
love the scrabble tiles ... very clever. i also really like the then and now idea.
