My attempt at the extraction (blog entry: http://www.theshabbyshoppe.com/blog/...-a-layer-mask/
). So much fun! Great technique to discover - way easier!
What was great about this photo, but only I know since it doesn't show, is that her shirt has a bitten apple on it. Kind of cute, since she's eating an apple!
Mix bag of Blossom and Hopscotch. A lot of the green and red elements (flower buttons, flowers, tab, red torn edge paper) were recolored a bit to match the blossom/pinks.
Yellow circle and yellow paper are from Summer Cottage.
I created the apple. Kind of fun. Took some clip art, extracted, textured.
Alpha is from Hopscotch. I think staple is from Promise?
Also, I was inspired by some of the multi layered layouts. I find them hard. I get too much or not enough. So, trying to refine my technique.
