I love this page – it looks so much better in real life – come see it in the store! Colours are way better in real.
These magazine overlays from Creative IMAGINATIONS came in to JSI about three weeks ago. I had to grab the military one – just because I knew somewhere in my archive of military photos of Mark, there would be one that would work. And there was. However the overlay was decidedly American so after lightening the left side of the 8×10 cropped photo, so the words would show up, I added Canadian DART and the DART logo. Getting the logo was a bit time consuming but time flies when I work in Photoshop. hehe I got the logo off another photo of Mark. First searched the Canadian Forces site for a nice clean one that would not need any fixing up – but do you think they have their DART logo on any of their sites?? No – so I cut this off Marks shoulder from another photo – love that magic wand tool – fixed it up – finicky – and put it and the words directly on the photos where they would line up with the overlay words. Printed the photo and viola! It now has a Canadian presence.
The background paper is new BG – my favorite ‘boxer’ skinny jeans. To add some military green and a little red I cut two strips from the new Fancy Pants transparencies that came in yesterday afternoon- these colourful strips are perfect for adding that one more colour to a page. Then I rummaged through my stuff and found this military guy from “Memories in Uniform” We still have these in the store…are Laura and I the only ones using military stuff???? And my friend Jo-Ann in Alberta whose husband is serving in Afghanistan right now. Pray for Jo-Ann and her husband. They will be separated for six months. Thinking about you Jo-Ann! Let me know how things are going.
Stay tuned! I have two more overlays I am working on.
Blessings to you all,
