My niece, Kristie, is a real character. She has tons of personality and is not afraid to share it. So when Kitty shared some photos of her from Halloween, I knew I had to scrap them.
For this layout, I played around with quite a few different techniques. For the background, I used some Photoshop styles and ArtGraphics from NBK Designs. Nicole is amazing! She creates entire collections of styles that one can apply to different layers and then blend with coordinating brushes. The possibilities are endless. One of her creative team members produces videos to teach how to use all the tools. I am definitely hooked.
I also found this tutorial on how to make your subject pop out of a frame. I really like PhotoshopEssentials.com The tutorials are clear and concise and have taught me a lot. I hope you will visit them and learn some things. Thanks for looking!
