September 2016 Challenge

16 posts in this topic

When I took Amanda Taylor's class The Art of Photographs, I was surprised to learn that using the same photo in different ways on a layout makes a fun and interesting page. It's something I had never tried before so I thought I would give you a chance to try it too. So the challenge is simple, use one photo on your layout three different ways.  You can blend it into the background, highlight different areas of the same photo, or use different photo treatments and filters. Here are some examples:

 

This layout uses a template from Amanda's class and I highlighted different areas of the same photo.

This one uses three different photo treatments for the same photo.

Post your layouts in the challenge gallery and link it to this forum topic by September 30, 2016

 

And now for the prizes (all prize winners chosen randomly):

  1. (1) $30.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice
  2. (1) $20.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice
  3. (1) $10.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice

You can only win one prize in the challenge each month. Instructions on how to post a layout in the gallery and how to link it to this thread are pinned to the top of the category.

 

I hope you'll join the challenge and good luck!

Super layouts so far! 

 

Here's my entry using the photo as the background layer, blended into the canvas layer, spill over frame and blended into the font for texture.

Great layout! I like the way you added just a little bit of color to this mostly neutral palette. Thanks for joining the challenge!
