Default *closed* NBK Design Challenge "Selective Colour" 18 - 24 Sep

Hi there! I’m Anne/aka Oldenmeade and this week I have a selective colour challenge for you. There are various methods for creating this effect. The one I'll be using today is simple and straightforward. I did my page in photoshop elements.



First, find a coloured photo which has something that you want to make stand out - e.g. a red rose in a bouquet, a child in a yellow coat, the eyes of a cat etc.

If your photo is an original, duplicate the file and then work on the copy.
Duplicate photo
Select bottom layer



Go to Enhance/Convert to black and white/choose one of the options



Select top layer
Hold down the alt/opt key and add a (black) layer mask
This will hide the top layer
With a soft brush and foreground colour set to white, select the black layer mask and start painting back in the colour where you want it.



When you're finished, merge the 2 layers and save your photo with a new name.
Now use your photo in a layout and post the end results here.

My layout is made with Intuitive, by NBK Design.
I completed my page by erasing the hard edges of the photo, then adding some Artsy Bits & Pieces, and a word art.

here are some examples from the CT

This background has red-purple small flowers in the foliage, distracting to the orange poppy, so this was a great idea.
