Soul Firing Stuff - Plumera

Soul Firing Stuff - Plumera

Yes, life is a series of tiny miracles. I’ve realized at least two recently. The first was after reviewing Dad’s letters from Korea, and how I, and my brothers, were just an inch or two away from never existing. Not to mention, he met and married my mom when he returned, not someone else, as he was planning while he was there. The second miracle is Ron’s recent car accident, he and Chris both walked away from. All four of us are still somewhat in shock, wondering what Tracy and I would do if we’d lost both of them.

I searched this morning for photos for the Plumera palette. I liked this one I downloaded a while back, and she bears a resemblance to my mother. Photo credit: spring by robysaltori, DeviantArt.

The Artsy Layered Template psd file was placed above Artsy Paper 2 and grouped. Template layers were adjusted, colored, removed or blend mode changed. The photo was duplicated twice, all 3 copies clipped to different layers of the template with different blending modes. Three more copies of the photo were clipped (transformed, with Curves Adj.) to the small frames. Embellished with elements, word art, journaling, stains, textures, and MultiMedia Magic Sprinklez (some layers removed, others adjusted). Fotoglows from the MultiMedia were moved below the word art or journaling. Finished with a gradient, soft light, 58%.
