Here is a digital scrapbook page I created in celebration of my Mom and her heritage for Mother's Day.
|My Mom (Magda) as a young girl with her Family in Spain|
All the items used to create this page are EKDuncan Originals.
So they are one-of-a-kind pieces to celebrate a one-of-a-kind Mom.
Happy Mother's Day!
These are the various items I created in Photoshop
to put my page together.
|EKD "Old World Charm" Background Paper|
I created it by combining a variety of images, textures and colored blending modes.
I wanted something that looked very old European with a fresco wall or
cracked stucco texture to it and was very pleased with this look though it took
a bit of trial and error to get it right.
I see myself using this background quite a bit with different color overlays on it
and maybe and additional texture layer or two.
That's part of the fun of Photoshop - build, add, change, alter...
|EKD Modified Pocket Watch Embellishment|
This was created in Photoshop by using a picture of the watch
then I removed the background area behind the wheels and cogs
and replaced it with the image of an old map.
I also added jewels in red and green
where most of the screws in the piece appeared.
I also removed the background surrounding the watch and turned it into a PNG file.
|EKD - Old World Pocket Watch Frame|
I could use it as a fun frame for pictures.
|Fresco Frame from my EKD "Old World Charm" digital collection|
I scanned, cleaned up the image and removed the necessary areas so I would have a great PNG for using in my digital art pieces.
|EKD Old World Charm Word Art|
In the final version of this layout I replaced the "O" in Old with the antique watch for a more interesting effect.
I had a blast creating my own background papers and embellishments
and have created a whole series which I have titled "Old World Charm".
I will be posting several more layouts with the parts and pieces I created that are part of the series so please check back in to see what other fun items I've put together.
