Diamond Jubilee


& 2012 Eden

Diamond Jubilee

Hurrah! I'm not that keen on red, white and blue as a colour combination but somehow managed to come up with an idea for this challenge. I used my new PSE 9 and Brandy's Ultimate Artist Action on this lovely Cecil Beaton photo.
I've added diamond stars in the form of the Southern Cross which appears on Australia's flag. Elizabeth II is still Australia's head of state.

    Just beautiful! I love that photo blended so nicely on your blue background and the little stars add the perfect touch!
    I love the artist action, colors and the lovely photo of the queen. I think the diamonds are a clever touch. Beautiful layout.
    Incredible. You did a wonderful job on this layout. Love the colors and that beautiful photo of the Queen. What a great idea to add diamonds to the page. They look beautiful.
    Gorgeous Eden. Wow - you're doing great and up to your wonderful par with PSE and I love what you did with the photo. Your colors are pretty and I really like the shiny stars! :)
    Wow! Wonderful concept, and beautifully done. The deep rich blue makes the perfect night sky for your diamond southern cross. I love the effects on Beaton's photo. Beautiful blending, too. And lovely title font. This is just amazing, Eden! It looks like you are adjusting to PSE9 just fine. :D
    Eden this is gorgeous. The ultimate action works so beautifully on the pboto and your blending with the background is seemless. Love the diamond stars and the red pops.
    Beautiful work on the photo, love it.
    That's a really pretty background and a great blending job.
    This is stunning, Eden! We're lucky PSE behaved like a lady for you with this as a result! The idea of the Southern Cross in diamonds was inspired. I love the wonderful textures, and your blending of that photo is masterful. It captures the feel of "loneliness at the top" or the "weight of responsibilities on her shoulders" (I'm not describing it very well). Very, very lovely. Thanks so much for joining in this week's Saturday Color Challenge (especially as it's not your favorite color combination)!
    I love the way the jewels show up in your treatment of The Queen's photograph. Great job Eden.
