Just Like This

Six weeks ago, Adryane and I walked in the warm California sun, photographing art nestled in the brush along the path near her home. Across the bay we could see downtown San Francisco. Oh for more time just like this.

I’m currently staying home, but I look forward to life returning to normal. While I’m home, I’m playing with some of the photos that I made in February.

Artsy Transfer and Paper
  • Place solid paper 1 from ArtPlay Palette Ordinaire on a new blank document.
  • Place the layers file 2 from Artsy Transfers Ordinaire above the solid paper.
  • Delete one transfer layer.
  • Place mask 3 from FramedMasks No. 6.
  • Clip black and white photo to mask. Add a color style to the photo and reduce the opacity.
Framed Mask
  • Place the layers of file 1 from FramedMasks No. 6 above the artsy transfer.
  • Clip art to framed mask.
  • Clip photo of scene to FotoBlendz mask and stains.
Embellish
  • Place layers of file 3 from MultiMedia Flowers No. 7 above the framed photo.
  • Add color overlay to darken the flower layer. Use mask to bring back in the green.
  • Adjust the ribbon with a color overlay.
  • Place word art from Everyday WordART Mix No. 1 over the blended photo.

Boat

My sister and I took the ferry across to Balboa Island in February. There were lots of beautiful boats to photograph. My favorite is the little red rowboat. Nearly 50 years ago, Bill and I had a boat, not one like any of these that I photographed at Balboa Island a few weeks ago, but a 17 foot inboard outboard for waterskiing. The hardest part of this layout was trying to blend an old photo with current photos.

Use a Template
  • Open template 6 from FotoInspired Template Pack No. 2M.
  • Drag the layers to a new blank 12×12 page.
  • Reduce the template size to 85%.
  • Adjust photos in Lightroom.
  • Clip photos to masks.
Use Artsy Transfers
  • Create composites of Artsy Transfers Sea Life, files 2 and 5 by clicking command+option+shift+E after selecting all layers of each psd file.
  • Clip each composite to mask below text and adjust position.
  • Place old photo and use blending brushes to blend it into the transfers.
Build a Cluster

Yes, that is me skiing behind our boat in the old blended photo below the text.
