Water Slide Fun

Everything by Anna Aspnes

Artsy Layered Template 196
ArtPlay Pallet Summery
ArtPlay Beach
Urban Stitchez8
12X12 Overlay5

Process Notes: I modified Artsy Template by disabling some of the layers.  I added 2 papiers, Solid Papier #1 and on top of that one I used Papier #3.  Next I copied the slide picture I used 4 additional times, placing each one below the frame and clipping themto the photo mask.  The 5th picture I placed on the bottom photo mask above the frame.  For that photo I used the reverse masking technique and brushed in the areas of the photo I wanted to show.  (Kaitlyn sliding, and the water below the slide).  I then added wordart, elements and an edge finish.

Watercolor Photo of shells by Martha Marlette

Process Notes: Started with Artplay Summery solid paper4, added shell watercolor photo after removing it's original background, I did that by using the Paint Bucket plus set the mode to clear. This type of background removel works great if the background is a solid color.  I then created the title and added various elements
and edges.

FotoBlendz WaterColor1

Process:  Started with Summery Artsy Paper4 for my background.  Added FotoBlendz Watercolor1 as a base, duplicated it and turned it a bit to cover the straight edge and merged the two.  Clipped my photo to it. I wanted to create a bit of a border around the blended photo, so I duplicated the FotoBlendz with the photo and placed it below the original.  On the bottom FB I used the blend mode Color Dodge, which made it white, I enlarged it a bit and it created a great border.   I added the Summery Edge Overlay and used a gradient Overlay, I wanted a stronger effect so I duplicated the layer. I then added various elements, overlays ,strokes to finish this up.

I needed some sense of peace today, working on this layout has helped.

Just added a few more elements and can call it done.
