For The Love Of The Game Gallery

This is my layout for the January 2017 Forum Challenge. The challenge is to make a layout with one photo showing some kind of activity or movement.

This is my youngest granddaughter playing volleyball. The photo was taken in 2012. One of my most favorite things to do was watch her play.

To create this layout I added papers: Kiss me paper No. 16 from J. Sprague, then added a solid cream texture paper freebie from Istock photos (iStock_000012151746Small.jpg) and changed the blend mode to multiply. Under that paper I added paper by cartabella_BB_foam_12a_paper light blue, from J. Sprague. Left it at normal. Then added a Gradient fill layer – yellow to blue. Added my cutout photo and text layers used font: Eurostile. I then simplified the text layers and added a mask to hide some of the text on the photo so that the text appeared to be in the background.

First, it's a fabulous photo! No wonder you love to watch your granddaughter play volleyball. It looks like there are some great action moments. :)


Wonderful extraction and it looks superb against that big text. It has such a great magazine feel to it!
