See if you can follow this, lol! I came in to check emails and clean off my desk and saw an old sketch on my note pad and decided to play with it digitally, is it any wonder I get anything done at all?
Trying to get my mojo back.
Anyway, I removed the color from the background image then selected stripes and toned them each a different color then added two text blocks, a different one for the title and journaling. Then I inserted the original picture in true color with a color filled block behind it to make a photo mat.
It needs something, this is not the image I had in my head when I started although it looks very similar to my sketch. I think the background needs to be muted more and maybe I'll print it off after and add a few 3d embellishments. I just hate a flat layout................ stay tuned.
You may offer suggestions here and we can "play" with them.
here's the best I could do on the muting so far.
gotta run, I'll check back later for suggestions, comments and play some more.
