WT Beach - GoodTimes/Spring Breakin'

I love Brandy's Lighting Effects and Angie's Pop of Color for my photos – just what I need sometimes to brighten up and warm up some overly dark or grey pics.

this is amazing!  Popped right out at me.  Love the mask on the larger photo and the placement of the photo/embellishments is great.

Such a pretty page, Brenda and yes, for sure it pops right out so full of color and lighting!  I love the colors and pieces you used and your journaling on white - it looks great!

Really like the whole design of this layout!  You certainly have a knack for adding the little things that really make a layout come together to tell a story. Bright and beautiful and really grabs the eye

Really lovely. Is that the lighting effect on the background photo? Love the coloring.

I actually used effects on all the photos. I adjusted the levels on the photos of Karen, and used Brandy's spotlight (reversed and flipped) to brighten up her face, which was in shadow. The two of Karen and the one of the water were all taken the same day, and they were very gray, so I wanted to warm them up to go with the yellow paper. I used the Creamy Pop of Color to warm those up. Then I used the spotlight on the one of the dunes to add the white to it so it would go with the other pictures that had so much white in them. (I used overlay and soft light blending modes with the effects, and adjusted the opacity.) I think I added the spotlight to the water, too, just to give it some more pop. It probably takes me way too long to build a layout, but I love to try things and just see how it looks! Here are the original photos:

Woops, sorry they turned out so large. They looked like thumbnails in the comment box. :wub:

[I deleted the humongous pictures and put in thumbnails, but I can't figure out how to delete this post. Still with a red face :wub: ]

Thanks for explaining how you did this, I always learn from your layouts. I just love the photo of the waves, you've captures the curves and their sunny tops. Pretty colors in your layout, too.
