Rock 'n' Roll

Here is something I created last night using items from the Rockin' Booster Pack. I am so excited!! I am working on using some of the things from various collections in different ways to enhance my images. On this image I took an embellishment and placed it over the subject and set the blending layer to soft light. I then masked out the subject, burned the edge in and added the text.

Bohemian Template

I was working on a studio sample of senior Ashley Ross and I thought I would share the result. I made a couple of minor changes to the template by adding a stroke and changing the background paper to better match Ashley's photos. The finished size is 12x24 and I know it will look great hanging in our studio!!
