September Hues: Shades of Green

Advertisements

For the month of September, I have decided to challenge myself each week to scrapping with certain hues. This week (September 1-5, 2020) I am using shades of green.

Color pallette

I began by opening up a new print, 12″ x 12″ file in Adobe Photoshop CC 2020. Under “Preset Details” I set the resolution to 300 pixels /inch, the “Color Mode” to RGB color 8 bit, “Background Contents” White, and Color Profile to, “Working RGB: sRGB IEC61966-2.1, with a Pixel aspect ratio set to “Square Pixels.”

I chose the d5f1e0 hue for the background. Next I opened, copied, and pasted one of the free graphics from Multimedia Crafts Digital Freebies, “Leaf Overlay” kit. (Click here to download kit)I then changed the hue of the pasted overlay to 3f652d.

I then added my focal point, a picture of some coffee and a banana. I added it along with some other elements to the canvas.

I got some of the elements from Pixel Scrapper and others from the latest Multimedia Crafts Digital Freebie, “Drink Up” clip art kit.

I continued to play around with the different color overlay blending options until I reached a satisfying look. This was a very fun project.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
