September Hues -Week 2: Shades of Brown

Advertisements

So for week two of the September Hues (9/6 – 9/12, 2020) I am designing with shades of Brown.

Brown Color pallette

Similar to week one, 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.”

On the background layer (layer 0) I changed the color to a brownish tan tone. I added a new layer (layer 1) and used a number brush I acquired from Sahin Designs on Pixel Scrapper, across the page.

Next, I added a picture as my focal point and began to build around it. I added some elements and papers from the Pixel Scrapper collaboration bundle called, “The Good Life Bundle“. I used the Kit from that bundle called, “Autumn Bramble” by Jessica Dunn. I made sure to use the color pallette to alter the tones to shades of brown.

I then added a layer of paint and used some water styles across it, to give it a raised 3-d look.

I finished the layout with the sentiment, “Water Falls”. This was a very easy and fun project. All you need is your photo editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop, or PaintShop Pro and a great imagination. Gather your papers, elements, and vision and you are off to designing a beautiful layout.
