I tried to post this yesterday, but I still can’t see it. I’ll try again.
This December Word Challenge page was looking awfully lonely so I thought I would post something on it. Being from New York, I thought of Central Park in the winter. New Year ~ New Snow ~ New York
I cropped a lovely photo taken by David Stevens and added the falling snow using Cassel’s How to Add Rain tutorial, but I adjusted the settings to be more snow-like. The window frame is a piece of clip art I’ve had for a long time…origins unknown. I’ve added many frames to PSP; makes it easier to get the right proportions. The background is one of Marisa Levin’s Winter Day papers from PixelScrapper. I used the same pattern to fill the outer border and applied the Inner Bevel Effect to make a frame. The snowflakes are from a collection by antuanetto on Creative Market. I recolored them with Marisa’s pattern, too, using the Color Replacer Tool and added a drop shadow to give them some depth. The font is Heavenfield, one of my favorites from FontBundles.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.</p>
