Another of E's first year photos.
This one is a blend of two photos, the color image in the balloon is from one, the rest is another, then I made a cut tool/copy of the "1", then used the rubber stamp tool to make a blended stamp of it, and tinted it pink. I finished up with a title sticker from the Primary Birthday Power Palette Addition.

A little Digi Scrapping...

I've been busy lately, with two kids and a job, plus going to school, there isn't much time for what I love to do, but with Storybook Creator Plus 3.0, I can squeeze in a little digital scrapbooking every week. Lately I have been having a great time learning about photo editing. In the next few posts, I am going to attach a few of the photos I have been working on in the past few months. I hope you will enjoy them!

My baby turned one!

Here is a picture of my baby E, from her 1 year photo shoot.

I enhanced it with a little photo editing using Storybook Creator Plus 3.0.
I used the Custom cut option on the Cut & Fill Ribbon, cut around the chair and E, made the chair part shaded, made a copy, then cut out the holes in the arms of the chair. Then I used 2 overlays, used the same two color gradient on both, one pink on top, the other the opposite. The last thing I did was make a rubber stamp of the background photo using the blended rubber stamp option, shaded it pink, turned down the opacity and put it on top of the background layer and the overlays.
So from bottom to top, I have background photo, overlay 1, overlay 2, stamp image and cutout image. On the top image, I used the 3-d filter on very lightly, and put a heavy shadow on it. I think it turned out super cute!
