Default It's a designer spotlight on DIDO DESIGNS {CLOSED}

It's time to shine the Spotlight on Dido Designs!!

Diana has the coolest challenge to get your creative juices flowing! A Blind Lift!

What does a blind lift mean, exactly? Well, it's easy, Diana has given me the page she wants us to lift, and I'll provide you with a set of instructions that you have to follow in order to lift her. The twist here is that I will not post her page until the very end, so you all can see how close (or nowhere near!) you all came to her original design.


1. Start with a white or pale background
2. Type a HUGE title across the middle (one word titles will work best for this challenge, though)
a) Select a very bold font like this:

b) Rasterize your type layer and separate into individual letters
c) Clip your photos to each letter
d) Arrange them as you wish, make them overlap a bit or just add your own touch to them!)
(OR.... you can also use the template Di provided instead if that's the word you'd like to use)

Now that you have your photos clipped to your word, it's time to embellish.
4) Right behind the photos, add a circle outline. You can use a stamp, a stitch, doesn't matter as long as it's circular.
5) Behind this circle, add a couple of brush strokes or overlays to add dimension and fun!
6) You can add more brushes but be subtle!
7) Add a few elements stapled or stitched to your photos, some sprinkles, the date, and you're done!
