A solid paper from APP Bespoke was used as the foundation of the page. The 5x7 photo was clipped to a resized 12x12 fotoblendz mask. Because the image didn't fill the mask, it was duplicated, flipped horizontally and moved to the right side of the mask. The size of the photo was increased. A layer mask was added and using the gradient tool the two images were blended together. The layers were duplicated and a screen blending mode (reduced opacity) was applied. Artsy Transfers Bespoke_5 was layered over the 12x12 mask. Some of the layers were turned off or moved to frame the image. More paper textures were added, along with an overlay and transfer from the kit. The page was completed by adding word art, dimensional embellishments and urban threadz and stitchez.
The quote is so interesting--I've been reading a lot about generational trauma (and generational healing) lately. Pairing it with the children really makes the point that our DNA is linked to more than just eye color. Bravo!
Love your photo, quote, and title wordArt. A beautiful page. Like Laura, I'm quite aware of this subject and for me it means do all you can to pass on good DNA, and especially if it wasn't handed down to you.
