I have always loved this photo of my mother. The original was scratched, cracked, torn and dirty. I restored it to its former state and I have been able to scrapbook it as a result. She is sitting with her back to the camera as it would have been considered unseemly to show that she was carrying my unborn older sister at the time.
I used PSE 07 to create the lo and one of the techniques I used was to copy the base photo and treat the second layer with the coloured pencil effect with the opacity then scaled back to 50 on both pictures to show the scalloped paper through. I then used control G on both of these to have the layers grouped with the scalloped paper.
