Photo collages

I love to make photo collages or story boards from my photos. I recently found these templates online and made these collages below from some autumn photos

Autumn is a second spring....

I have been loving this quote by Albert Camus since I first heard it years ago. Every autumn I am excited to see the beautiful Autumn colors once  again, I love o go out with my camera and try to catch the beautiful colors, I made this storyboard in Photoshop after a recent Autumn walk....

Trip to Gdansk and Sopot

I went to Poland last week, visited Gdansk and Sopot, Gdansk is very beautiful, especially the old town and Sopot is a wonderful town with beautiful beach. I made the story board in Photoshop and then I added a vintage filter on my favorite photo editing tool these days is Perfect Effects 8, it is a great photo editing program that really works well with Photoshop and has a lot of very nice filters and editing tools that are easy to work with.

A Mixed Media Color Challenge

When I read about the new Mixed Media Color Challenge blog today I thought it would be such great way to inspire my creativity and newly discovered hobby art journaling to take part in their mixed media challenge. Every other week the designers Mona Fendleton and Sue Lelli will present a color combination to spark creativity, now the theme is: light, pink, silver and black. You can read more about on the Color Challenge Blog
Below are my two entries for this challenge
For this layout I started by adding light pink acrylic paint, I then used silver colored acrylic paint with a stencil, I stamped a butterfly with rubber stamp on a ledger paper then punched out a circle. After that I added some washi tape and a printed bird photo from my last weekend trip to the country side, I also added a stamped label and finally stamped the Fly away with Me text.

For the second layout I started by spraying the page with a pink paint spray on a doily stencil. I then stamped the butterfly with rubber stamp to a ledger paper and then punched out a circle from it. I glued down the circle, added some washi tape, taped down one of my printed buddha statue photos and added some more washi tape on top. Finally I stamped the the text Color my world,
