Leaving a Bit of Sparkle Where Ever She Goes

I finally had some time to put together a layout.  It felt so good to scrap after weeks of no time.  Risa 2 yrs. old.

Adapted Brandy Murry 2016 calendar template and used her kit Love Is.  Wordart by Zoe Pearn in A Little Bit of Sparkle.

Artsy Template Multi Pack 5 (modified)
Artplay Palette Airy
Foto Glow Mix 1

Process:With this one I started with my pictures that were adjusted in the camera raw function.  I chose the template that would work for placement value, turned off all layers except for the photo frames.  Placed my photos knowing that I would use one of them to blend into the background.  Placed solid paper 1 and Papier 4 above that.  I moved papier 4 towards the left a
quarter of the way and used the gradient brush to soften the edge, this allowed the solid paper to show through.  I masked one of the photos and blended it into the background with soft light.  I chose that photo because it was a bit blurry, but still wanted to use it for the facial expression.  for the rest of the layout I turned on some of the template layers, recolored some of them and then finished off with my title, journaling and element placement.

Heart Beach

For years I've collected Lisi Martin cards, when I saw this kit I knew I had the perfect background for one of my favorite cards.

Process:  Used solid papier3 for my base, placed photo where I wanted it and did a reverse mask on it.  Used a brush to bring in areas of the picture I wanted to keep.  Played with transfers to see which one would work the best.  Added Multimedia behind the photo and finished off with
some of the notebook spirals and graphic paper overlays.
