Removing Colour from pictures
Over at "The rest of the Storybook" Jan is teaching everyone how to remove colour from a portion of their pictures. For step by step instructions hop on over to her blog. This is such a fantastic technique and gives a really cool look. I decided to try my hand at this for a title bar I am creating for a traditional layout.
I wanted to create a title bar that was 6 inches wide and 12 inches long using one of my pictures. My idea was to turn the picture to black and white and just leave a portion of the tower coloured. Then I wanted to add my title along the entire length of the picture. I have never done anything like this before but am pretty pleased with the results. Now all I need to do is print the picture off and add it to my traditional 12x12 layout.
As soon as I get this title bar printed and added to my layout I will share my completed project with you. In the mean time here is a look at the title bar.
I am a SAHM to three beautiful girls. I am obsessed with scrapbooking and cardmaking. I just recently have started to dabble in digital scrapbooking. My software of choice is Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus 3.0. My other interests are camping, hiking, running, photography, and spending time with my family and friends.
