Designed by myself for a challenge, I thought this photo was perfect to try out my new kit from Designer Digitals: Filmed Overlays #4 by Katie Pertiet. It is a film slide overlay. My intent was to capture the love between my Daughter and her Grandmother. This photo was taken with a Nikon D50 Camera at shutter speed 1/200 and F10, 60mm lens. I created this layout in Photoshop CS4 and used several techniques to create the "film" look of an old slide to the photo. If you would like more information, feel free to email me. Thank you for stopping by. (you can click on the layout to see it up close)
When I found this photo today I almost died laughing. I cannot believe I have been 10 years or more planning parties for my kids! It's my pleasure and joy to create exciting parties full of imagination and creativity. My children are so well adjusted, I just know that my own heart is filled with a sense of accomplishment with this aspect of my life! Thank you Lord for this gift.....amen.
I want to tell you that Designer Digitals is a website based around the digital design and implementation of scrapbooking with computer software. If it were not for them, I would not have pushed myself into learning Photoshop CS4. I was completely taken aback when I stumbled upon their site. They taught me that you can buy, create and submit to their site. You have a lot of discussion places and learning areas to help you with your software. A lot of the people that post here are also great photographers! So, as far as help, you can get it. Here is my layout for this week's challenge. The items that were included in the challenge were the flower stem (the stem is in black, you have to figure out how to color it) and taped frame around the photo. I have to say that the effect of colorizing a PNG file is cool. I really wanted to let the layout and photo speak for themselves that is why I didn't journal. If I decide I need to say something, hey, no problem, just add it in Photoshop! Thanx for looking, feel free to post if you would like.
Over at the Scrappy Chic Cafe, I've been asked to set up a challenge. Whoo hoo! This challenge is about nature and how a simple photograph can be an inspiration. The reason I chose this photograph is for it's composition. I've illustrated it in my drawing. As well, I've provided a layout that represents why one photograph can be powerful a message by creating movement throughout a layout. Enjoy and thank you for looking. You are welcome to join in the challenge, you will first need to register and become a member of the Scrappy Chic Cafe. It is a free online scrapbook site that I am in loooove with! Won't you join me?
