1. Extend Your Theme

Use elements from the ArtPlay Palette to extend the theme of your photo artistry page.

  • The twig Embellishment from ArtPlay Palette Swell makes for a great place for the photo subject to sit.
  • Notice how the blue flower Catches the Eye and creates a Focal Point in this digital scrapbooking page.
  • We also love the placement of the Oasis No. 2 brushes to create a Landscape and further support the Theme.

2. Embellish Image Edges

Place digital art elements along the edges of a blended image to create intentional transitions in your digital scrapbooking layout designs.

  • It’s difficult to create a Seamless Blended Image between 2 different colors in your photo artistry pages
  • You can ease this Transition by placing digital art supplies along the Edges of a blended image.
  • Notice how Adryane as placed transfers and overlays from ArtPlay Palette Swell to create an artsy ‘frame’ to her photo.

3. Framed Partial Extraction

Create an extraction over a blended photo and add a frame to create a focal point.

  • Clip a photo to a FotoBlendz clipping mask or Custom Blend your photo.
  • Duplicate the image, Create an Extraction, and apply a Drop Shadow Layer Style to create dimension.
  • Place a Frame element between the 2 images and Erase areas of the extracted images as needed.
