2011_07_28 Textured Background


Made with PSE9, on a Laptop PC, with Win7

I used a photo that I took when I was in Bancroft, which is in northern Ontario, for the layout image. From a section of it, I made my template and used the stone pattern included in PSE9, as an overlay to give more texture the the background. I then chose a colour from the rock, to colour the background and used the screen setting. From the same section of rock, I made a brush and used it, on overlay setting, behind the photo. I also used the brush to colour the text, with the same colour that I used for the background. From the photo, I chose a section and extracted some of the bush, which I used for embellishments.

Rock Face


While driving the

northern highways

of Ontario, many

beautiful rock faces

can be seen.

Because of the

rocky terrain,

the paths for the

highways, are

blasted out of

the rock, leaving

vertical rockfaces.

Sometimes a trickle

of water can be seen

flowing from a crevice

in the rock and in

other places, plants

and trees, take root.

While I enjoy the

views of crop and

animal farms, in

central Ontario,

the shear rock,

trees and small lakes

that are distributed


Northern Ontario

are an awesome

sight to behold.

Heatheranne, this is so beautiful. I love the colors that you ended up with. The rockfaces are fabulous. I find these type of natural wonders to be awesome. Great job.

This is so subtly gorgeous - is that an oxymoron? Your photo is quite colorful, though in muted tones, and so full of texture. And I love the papers you created to show it off to best advantage. Beautifully done!

The rock faces remind me of this part of the country. I just love the soft echo of the rock texture behind the photo. The brush is a wonderful idea - the whole layout looks great!

Really clever, I read the explanation 3 times! Loving the echoes of the rock faces - behind the main page, on the main page, stamped behind the photo and the photo itself. That layered effect gives depth to the rockface. Really really clever.
