September Hues: Shades of Green

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!

I am a full time working wife and mother of three sons. I love all manner of crafting; From digital scrap-booking to tangible mixed media projects. I love to learn from other people and get exposed to the huge world of art. Creativity is in my blood. I have always sketched pictures since I was a kid, and now with social media (Thanks YouTube, Pinterest, Google images, etc....) I have become so overwhelmed with what project(s) to do for the day. I don't even know where to start. Should I make cards or make my own clay? Or should I design a wall hanging for the living room. I have become ridiculously indecisive with what I want to make. Also, I have become a craft hoarder. From paints, to dies and other cutting machines, to scrapbook paper and other designer card stock and embellishments, I have turned my little kitchen nook into my craft studio. I'm surprised my husband hasn't told me to get rid of all of the craft supplies....ie..clutter. My craft collection addiction is partially what made me want to learn more about digital scrap booking. It is all new for me, but I have invested in the Adobe Photoshop application and I have scoured YouTube on learning different techniques in layering scrapbook images, pages, brushes, and so on. Now I can go to the next level of design by doing it digitally.
