I was looking through my B&W photos and realized I had one that a dear friend had taken. Two days ago was the second anniversary of losing her. Today would have been her 45th birthday. I couldn’t think of a better way to honor her memory.
The polka dot background was made using the lights and darks from her photo. Dawn had mentioned in the Showroom that she got lace brushes from Roula33 on DeviantArt. I downloaded them and used one to make the lace frame; I picked that particular one because I thought it referenced the leaves in front of the barn. I added a black rectangle with no fill over the lace to cover the outer edge. The title font is Pirates and the text font is Amaranth. Thought I would keep the entire project simple with just black, white and green.
Dawn, Marlene: Great layouts. I love the way you both used your buttons.
