Getting Digital with Love

It has been a long time since I did a digital LO. I thought I would give it a whirl again. This LO was made in Photoshop Elements with papers and elements from, the kit is called Red Romance. I began this with a new 12 inch square file at 350 pixels/inch. Each of the patterned paper layers was cut from the kit. Layer 1 is dark red cut in a simple square of 11 1/2 inches. Layer 2 is the torn layer cut with a torn shape cutter from the grid paper, layer 3 is cut from the dotted paper with a torn circle. The hearts were also cut in Photoshop with a standard cutting tool. To add depth to this LO each of the layers has a low drop shadow added. The only items that aren't drop shadowed are the swirl and the faux dymo labels. The journaling labels have additional bevel effects added to make them appear to have more depth, just like the plastic dymo tapes do.
The photo was taken last summer at the Portland Beavers game. I am wearing my Komen breast cancer awareness jersey (game worn) and the guys have the team jersey. This was the last game of the season for the team AND unfortunately ever in Portland. We will miss them.
Thanks for stopping by!
