All members that participate, can everyone PLEASE ensure that you read all the rules for this challenge so that you can claim your challenge points. Thank you! :smile:

Hello and welcome to the September Creative Technique Challenge!

This month we are going to focus on a big photo layout! Yes one really big photo page!
Clip your big photo that fills the whole canvas to a mask and/ or brushes! Try to frame the page with these mask(s) or brushes! Don't use an extra frame! You can use some other accents for framing like stitches, or arrows or any of that kind! Embellish your page with some wordart and documentation as you wish!

Landscape and nature photo's are doing great on this kind of pages! You can use the photo to color the mask(s) or brushes you use! Also it can give some texture! Blur A copy your photo to get the result you are after.

I made you a sample to show you what I mean:

Colors of Autumn Clipping Masks (https://www.oscraps.com/shop/Colors-of-Autumn-Clipping-Masks.html) Colors of Autumn Playing with Brushes (https://www.oscraps.com/shop/Colors-of-Autumn-Playing-with-Brushes.html)

I am pretty sure you will have some ideas by now!


RULES:

Fab challenge-- my husband took some amazing shots of a butterfly in the garden and I was so happy to be able to use it as the large photo!

Love the big photo in the background and the texture that is on top of it! The other photo's are a bit extra for this challenge as it is a one big photo challenge with no extra framing! Your page and documentation is beautiful! Thanks so much for playing easyeyes4you!
