A Kiss

A Kiss

This was my first adventure into digital scrapbooking. I probably shouldn't have started with my brother's wedding, but I was excited to play with the photo.

I took the photo and enlarged it to fit the space (stretched it out a bit actually). I changed the opacity and added a bit of blur to the background. Then I brought in the actual photo (cropped a bit) and added the white border around it (I believe it was a 2 "stroke"). I used a scraggly brush to erase the edges of the paper. Then I spent way too much time looking for the perfect quote. The font is Zapfino. I added drop shadows on the elements and called it done. More than anyone wanted to know. :)

I used PS CS2 on a lovely iMac.

    This turned out wonderful! What a romantic pic.
    Great, great, great! Love the photo and the background, beautiful page!
    Wow! I love it! I love how you used the picture as the background paper. This should be framed!
    I think you have accomplished a most wonderfully, romanticly, gorgoeous page for your first layout. Fantastic job.
    That is absolutely AWESOME!!! I love everything about it. Amazing for a first try. Way to go.

    congrats! i'd say that you did a very fine LO! :2468who-do-we-appreciate:
    Wow! I really like the way you echoed the photo in the background!! It is just lovely and simple and elegant. I am finding it hard to believe this is your first layout!!
    Beautiful job!!
    Wow, this is amazing! Love how you did this and I may just scraplift the idea if you don't mind! The quote and font are great, as is the pic. I love how you enlarged it as the background. If this is your first digi-scrapping attempt, can't wait to see more!
    Hey Zaz - wow, well done, looks unreal!
    Hey great work for your first layout!!! And I never mind anyone explaining in detail how they have done things cos I usually learn something. So thanks for sharing how you did it all!!!
