Not My Finest Hour
I used the AWI Fleeting Moments Solids Papers in Red, Blue and Green and the ASO SoBasically Paper2. One technique I used was to put the SoBasically paper on top of the red Fleeting Moments using a Luminosity mode. I made a photo mask using various grungy brushes and the colors orangish red and cream. I clipped my photo to the mask and changed the mask blend mode to luminosity. To get a bit more color I added a green photo mat with Fleeting Moments erasing parts of it and then clipped the blue Fleeting moments to the green mat and adjust the blend modes on each till I got the coloring I wanted. I added an inner soft bevel to the matting and also to the photo mask. My fonts are OOpie's Ma, Papyrus and LDJ Thankful. The journaling reads: My parents bought a service station when I was a junior in High School. I was supposed to work every day after school and on weekends. I didn't want to, I had another job and did not particularly like filling cars with gas(full service, shows my age). I realized later that it was a good job for me. I met lots of people and found I like helping people but this job was not my finest hour at the time for I was a selfish teenager. The sign is all that is left of that service station.
