Here is the PaperWhimsy project she inspired me to create.
This project has my lovely lady standing in a window as if she has just stepped off the dance floor and has been captured in time peering out of a book cover. It's what I would call a mix of Book Cover and Shrine Art combined. It makes me want to pop in my Jane Eyre DVD, and I probably will.
In her latest PaperWhimsy newsletter (March 20, 2011) Gale showed how she created a great piece of stage art using PaperWhimsy products and Photoshop Elements. I loved the drop shadow effect of her work so much I decided to give it a try too. I created my Book Cover Art in Photoshop based on those instructions and using similar PaperWhimsy items for a slightly different look.
Thanks of the inspiration Gale!

It's as if you are looking into a shadow box display and is so cool!
As always I'm tinkering around with digital products to give them a different look
and this project was no different.
I originally started this project using the PaperWhimsy products as they appear
when you purchase them; but being new to Photoshop I like to try out new skills as I learn them
and could not resist using a new clipping masking trick I recently learned.
This is what my Book Cover Art looked like before
I started my clipping mask alterations.
Then I decided I wanted a bit more zing and decided to use
this great PaperWhimsy texture for a new look on the frame
and all the architectural elements.
