Pink Sketches Sketch #3

Be sure and check out Pink Sketches this week to see sketch #3 and what the rest of the DT did with it! Gorgeous pages!! Way to girls! Here is my take on the sketch. I used Making Memories and BasicGrey papers, Prima flowers, KI Memories lace cardstock, Doodlebug trim sprayed with glimmer mist, Tim Holtz Grungeboard hearts, painted and covered with stickles, and American Crafts Thickers.

This was also my first attempt at more than just basic photo editing, and I love how the picture turned out. Thanks to Martha and her awesome Photoshop tutorial at Creative Scrappers, I was able to take her instructions and use a free download of Gimp to make the focal point of my picture in color and the background in black and white.

Here is the original photo:

And after editing:

Pretty cool, huh? Be sure and check out the Photography Tips & Tricks forum at Creative Scrappers for more tutorials!
