Winter Blues Collection – Winter Blues by Marianne

The Winter Blues Collection is very beautiful with soft icy colors with some gold touches! You can really make beautiful winter pages with this Collection.

These are my notes of how I created this page:

For this page: I started by making the photo a bit sharper. Then I gave it a blue color treatment. I run an action on it from Graphic River Geometric Art.

I made some copies of the photo and used some Artistic filters in Photoshop too. I blended them together with the use of a layermask. In a new document I placed the background paper. I placed the artistic photo. I clipped a copy of the photo on a Ripped piece and then set it to another Blendmode. I added all the Artsy Bits and Pieces,( some were used with styles, or set in another Blendmode.) I stamped the numbers and the WA. I placed a snowflake under the photo. I copied it and rotated the second one a little. I colored the WA in with multiple colors. With the Polygonal Lasso Tool I made selections filled with color that I clipped to the text layers. (In the shapes of the underlying layers.) I made a border around the page. I placed some Artsy bits and Pieces over the photo in Color Burn Blendmode to get that kind of diamond color and texture. I blended a big snowflake over the whole page and blended parts in with a layermask. I typed the text from the poem. I merged the layers and sharpened and did some Dodge and Burn work.
