Cutting out photos

It's so easy to cut out photos in PSE. I love it. I've done two in a row today where I just cut out my subject. This photo of dd had a bunch of clutter in it. So easy, chop/chop!

Then I felt like having a soft look because, let's face it, I've done so many cheerleading layouts, I need some variety! So I went through several options and chose the overlay mode for this pic. It softens that bright gold anyway, but gives my dd a sweet look, too.

I'm not entirely comfortable with the plain look which I was experimenting with because so many scrappers are doing such basic, simple lo's. I'm always one to try something. I'm just used to bright color and lots of elements on my page, whether they be photos, writing, or embellies, shapes, paper...

So I had another go at the plain lo with a cluster of photos. You know. I have to keep trying until I get one I really like and then I can move on!

Next subject for tonight is family football tailgating!

Great job on the extraction of your DD, wonderful layouts. Don't you just love Raspberry Roads Designs.
Have a great day!

Both of those layouts are gorgeous Leigh. You have used the kits beautifully.

The photo of your DD is stunning. Great work.
