Autumn at the Daniel Boone Homestead

Autumn at the Daniel Boone Homestead

This park is a 10 minute drive from our home. Makes for a wonderful afternoon of fun and education! And it's so beautiful in the fall. For Lori Cook's Brush Set: Thankful It's Autumn.

The base of the cluster is created with one of the brushes from Lori's set. You may notice from the marketing image that the center of this brush is solid or opaque. Once I stamped the brush on it's own layer on my layout, it was easy to select the center with my magic wand tool and copy the selection to it's own layer. To that, I added some additional "brush strokes" in different colors picked from the layout using a grunge brush. I finished it off with a small stroke and shadow style.

    Elisha this is a work of art! I love everything about it and it is going right into my favorites. I think it's just awesome! :)
    Elisha, this is gorgeous!! The colors are perfect and the placement of the word art and cluster is spot on!! You are amazing, girlfriend!!
    This is a 'Wow' layout. Love the blending and especially the cluster at the bottom of the page. Beautiful.
    I saw this in the newsletter and hoped I could find it to leave a comment - this is so beautiful!
    Saw this in the newletter & oh, my gosh! It is beautiful!! Gorgeous photo, wonderful blending & perfect font & cluster to embellish. Into my favorites - I may try a scraplift!!
    Elisha, this LO is just AWESOME!! I spent a lot of time this morning investigating it when I saw it in the Newsletter, first looking at what products you had used and trying to visualize how you used them to create this masterpiece. I also had to check out some of the products and then make sure that I had them all! Then, when I was taking a look at recent Gallery images, I had to go take another look at it there. For some reason, LOís always seem to look bigger and better in the Gallery! Plus, you added some info on how you put the darling cluster together. Beautiful job enhancing that photo and blending it into the bkg paper. This goes right into my Favorites. Itís definitely my kind of LO style!!! And a real piece of ART!
    Elisha, this just has to be a painting! Really, it's quite a work of art and you did an amazing job with it - lovely picture to begin with, but with all that you did creating this masterpiece it is far more than just a photo! I loved reading about how you did all of the techniques you used - it is just gorgeous and your blending is just amazing. This definitely should be framed and hanging on your wall somewhere - it is just gorgeous!
    Elisha, this is absolutely Beautiful! Love the blending...like the paper was made for this picture!
    This is absolutely stunning, Elisha. The photo is gorgeous and the cluster is just beautiful. I love your blendings and that background is awesome.
