I’ve had a lot of questions lately about my creative process. I’ve come to the conclusion that not all layouts are the same for me in artistic process – they each fulfill a different creative need.
Today’s layout is an artistic layout. Artistic layouts are created when I want to embellish a photo with colors, texture and elements to dress it up. Some photos tell a story just in the photo and beauty of an expression. They don’t always have journaling to say everything that is in your heart – the elements, colors, textures and symbols you use are up to interpretation.
The photo in the above layout is of my daughter Emily a few years ago. When I processed the photo, I knew I wanted a more formal and feminine frame to set off the photo which led me to the kit where I chose soft and feminine colors for the layout. The soft colors say a lot about Emily. I have three girls and Emily by far is my “girly girl” she is adorable and we love her. She loves butterflies (background stamp) and everything about her is just sweet.
Remember, the style of tutorials around here is very informal – much like if you were sitting at my computer with me and I was sharing details and little tips here and there. In this video we start in Lightroom and along the way I share not only how to recolor elements in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements but also a few things about my scrapbooking workflow.
Hope you enjoy! As always, please feel free to share your comments and questions here! Have a wonderful weekend!
