Scrappin’ Beach Photos

Just a quick post to share a page I made with Shabby Miss Jenn’s latest kit, Beach Shack. Every time SMJ puts out a beach themed kit, I just HAVE to pull out the photos from my honeymoon and re-scrap them LOL!
Photoshop Tips and Tricks:
- I layered the aqua wooden background over the brown wooden background, and used the eraser tool with a soft-edged brush to erase just around some of the outer edges. First I erased at 100% opacity, then I lowered the opacity to about 25% and erased again over the edge to soften the transition even more. Because the wood grain is the same on both backgrounds, this method helps the two backgrounds to blend together, giving the wood a faded time-worn look.
- I duplicated the title “Romance” several times, changed the blend mode to “color” and the opacity to 38%, and used it to add a little more color and detail throughout the background of the page.
- Since the subjects of the photo are so tiny, I placed photo corners around them, to help them stand out a bit more .
So, anyway, this is my new favorite kit for beach photos!!! Isn’t it AWESOME???
Now if you get some beach photos this summer, you will know where to go !
