It had been a rainy day and in the late afternoon I noticed the deep colors in my yard and had to run outside and capture this photo with the different greens and of course the contrast of the brilliant Burning Bush. With the neighbor’s light in his window it just made for that perfect moment in time when a cloudy day enriches the colors of the earth. Along with the Burning Bush, you see the Western Larch which sheds it’s needles in the fall after turning colors and a Blue Spruce. I have families of quail live the the Blue Spruce that come down to feed in the grass everyday. It’s sort of like a Quail condo. Love watching them when I’m at home.

Photo: Mine
Fonts: Stylist Pro and Chalk Line


Process Notes: Using solid paper 2, I brought in the fotoblendz mask, resizing and clipped the photo to it and putting the mask on Hard Light which brought out the rich colors of that afternoon. With the rectangle tool I created a stroke outline using a color from the paper.


Brushes from the palette came next, placing those on the left and right side of the photo, recoloring and blending, then adding the word art at the bottom left of the photo, also blending and turning down the opacity.


My word art came next. I clipped a couple of different transfers from the palette to the main title, giving the text layer a little bevel and emboss and a slight drop shadow to give the words a little definition. With the marquee tool, I deleted a part of the stroke outline layer where I lined up the word ‘Afternoon’ with it. I added a scribble/splatter overlay from the palette and lined it up with the bottom of the letter ‘L’ to give it a ‘brushed onto the paper’ look. I decided on a outline font for the month. Placing the leaves from the palette growing from the bottom of the letter ‘A’, I resized and played around with the shadow of the leaves until it looked right to me, then linking them together in the layers panel. I added another brush from the palette underneath the leaves, recoloring it from the photo to give a little texture.


Using a couple of artsy transfer stains, placing those at the top left edge and at the side left edge. I also added the skinny lined overlay underneath the photo and above it, I used the brushed edge overlay to give the background paper a little something, something. I recolored it a creamy white and put it on Soft Light blend mode.


Finally, adding the button, which I recolored using a hue/saturation adjustment layer, button threads and urban threads beneath. I believe that finished the layout.

I really like that light in the window. It beckons. We have a blue jay commune in our viburnum and there's nothing like watching them.
