Hi everyone, as ever there is some very good work being produced here with lots of tips and inspiration, so thank you. Here is my take on the Friendship project. This took me over 3 hours to do. First, I had to make the striped background by modifying a page from one of the scrapbook freebies because the original colours did not match my picture. I selected the various strips and colour using the magin wand and the shift key, chose my colours from the photos, and filled the selected areas. I then found the stripes were spaced too far apart, so I copied a stripe, added a new layer and pasted in the larger gaps with the selected stripe. Then I couldn’t find a nice scroll amongst my collection, and after trawling through my long forgotten folders I came across the gold leaf in my accents folder so I used that, and then found the heart in the same folder. So, it has taken me a while to say the least!
Loved the idea of the glitter background to the photos which are of me and my friends enjoying a day out in Brighton UK.
This project certainly took me out of my comfort zone, but very worthwhile for what I have learnt, and became familiar with those things that I had long forgotten.
