    Default The Foal--"Cherish"

    I liked this picture a lot and tried cropping it and doing other things to minimize the gate, but finally realized that's what I LIKED about the picture!

    Story: Last fall, a local farmer asked if we would allow his foal to come to our farm to wean. We don't have any "real" pets at present, having lost them to accidents.
    The foal came right around my daughter's birthday. This day was the first day she went to visit her "new pet"! Such awe she had.

    Process:
    *I added some "pink" hue to the pic to make it work with girly paper better. You can't imagine how much that helped the layout integrity.

    *Made flower embellishment from paper to to balance the LO.
    *Added transparency to the flower and quote box to let the background bleed through.
    *Used "painted" journaling block to eliminate any harsh line elements to compete with the picture frame.
    *Added text color the same of the paper purple.
    *Added a tiny glow "star" on the flower to help it catch the eye...it seemed too muted. (photoshopbrushes.com--free)


    Okay, I think that's it! I love these challenges. They are a blast.

    THANKS FOR LOOKING!
