On my flight to California, I created this page with Anna’s new ArtPlay Palette Lavaliere. I’m in California celebrating a birthday with my twin sister, so you are more likely to see photos rather than pages on my blog this week.

I began this page by placing solid paper 4 from ArtPlay Palette Lavaliere as well as the layers of file 4 from MultiMedia Lock and Key No. 1.

Note: I adjusted the color of the lock by clipping a Hue and Saturation adjustment layer to the group of file 4 layers. I also later added a layer mask to erase a part of the image so that it wouldn’t interfere with my photo.

Below the multimedia file layers, I stamped two copies of brush 4 in Lock and Key N0. 1 in a warm pink and changed the blend mode to linear burn at 100%. I added glow 2 from LoveGlows No. 2 and changed the blend mode to color at 100%.

I then placed a photo of my granddaughter between the lock and the brush layers and blended the photo into the background paper. I duplicated the photo and I extracted her with the Magic Wand tool before giving her image a custom drop shadow.

Next, I placed the layers of file 4 from Artsy Transfers Lavaliere. I adjusted the color of the transfer layer with a Hue and Saturation adjustment layer. I placed glow 1 from ArtPlay Palette Sun Fun on color burn at 100% to brighten the right corner.

Note: I added a Levels adjustment layer to the solid paper at 50% on screen blend mode. I also went back to adjust the blending of photo layers.

Finally, I added a title and journaling to finish my layout.

While working on this layout, I thought about what Anna shared in her AnnaNews email this week regarding changes she’s making in order to make more progress on the things she wants to accomplish. I think my art play was a great use of my time on the flight to Los Angeles even if I forgot to put on my AirPods so I could listen to some of my unfinished coursework while I played. That’s what I intended to do. Maybe on the flight home I will.
