Feb Swap for Lei (Bride)


& Eden 2013

Feb Swap for Lei (Bride)

Wow this was a challenge and a half! Lei sent me some fabulous photos. When I saw them I wondered if I could do them justice. I used two of Lei's photos, one of the church tower and I used the stained glass in one photo to create a stained glass background. I played with the brightness and contrast of both the glass and the tower and added a inkstrokes filter to the tower. TFL

Built in 1915, this church is a Modified English Gothic Revival structure that features a square, castellated tower with pinnacles and an arched belfry and sits on its own city block in historic downtown Howell, Michigan. Many children refer to it as “the castle church”.

    Wowsa! Magnificent layout, and so creative. I especially like the grid overlaid on the perspective view, and the stained glass through the grid, but there's nothing I don't like about this layout. Thanks for sharing!
    Beautiful layout and I love how you incorporated the repetition of the squares. Great job!
    Sooooo creative! A work of art for sure. I love the strong angles here and the way you incorporated the stained glass and the grid pattern. Fabulous page!
    WOW this is so creative! Love what youve done with the stained glass window. I must look out that font too - suitably Gothic for the subject.
    Wow! Fabulous page, Eden! Love the strong vertical of the church steeple against the angled, colorful glass!
    Fantastic, love the journaling and the amazing stained glass window used for the background. TFS xxx
    Wow, Eden, you did a fantastic job with the photos! I love the angles and your creative use of the stained glass -- they really suit the building and the mood. I love the photo techniques, too. Lei will love this!
    Eden this is magnificent - what a gorgeous and creative piece you have made. I love what you did with the stained glass and how you used it in a diagonal and then fit the journaling inside - wow. I really like how the blue sky shines through and how you used the window panes - just wonderful. I feel like I am IN your scene looking up at this beautiful structure. And, I keep looking and looking all over your page and marvelling over and over. What a masterpiece this is - lovely layout.
    My goodness, Eden ..... I sure am blessed!! What a masterpiece you have created for me ... I could not be happier with it. I love the various techniques you used ... and incorporating the stained glass windows into the bg ... brilliant! I love all the angles on this layout and how you laid the journaling at an angle as well. Thank you so very much!!
    Oh, gorgeous! Love the glowing glass and the shape you used for it. Tucking the text into that corner was brilliant. Great technique on the church.
