My Grandson Aaron in 2009

Everything by Anna Aspnes

Swimming WordART2
Stained Edge Overlays 2
ArtPlay Bask (Edge Transfer)

Process:  I placed a background paper and placed my photo over it.  I enlarged the photo to cover the whole page, but I wanted some of the paper to show through, so under the photo I created a mask and clipped the photo to it.  I started to erase some more of the mask, like under the waves to bring in some of the blue color of the paper.  I added a frame and a second photo and used my color balance to add more blue to the photo, so it would blend in with the page so far.  I placed various transfers to add some texture and color fluctuations.  Added the stained Edge overlay and clipped one of the solid papers to it, duplicated the paper layer and used multiply to darken it a bit.  Added wordart and created a lable using Liny’s tutorial, which you can find on Anna’s blog

Finished off by adding some bokeh to make it feel like the water was sparkling from the sun hitting it and another edge overlay.
