Gecko Galz June Cross Promotion

This month's Gecko Galz cross promotion is with Optical Illusions Etsy shop.  Here is the link https://www.etsy.com/shop/opticillusions

This is a totally digital item which I'm calling Miss Louise Playbill.  I used Photoshop Elements to create this.

I used 3 images from the Gecko Galz June 2014 release Miss Louise digital collage sheet.
I used the background paper, banner, clocks, and word strip from Optic Illusions' The Measure of Time digital scrapbook kit


Directions: 
Crop 3 images of Miss Louise,  remove backgrounds, and save as ping files

From The Measure of Time pack, start with Pennies from Heaven banner and clock charm. Remove backgrounds and save as ping files.  Place clock charm on top of banner and size to fit. Layer two images of Miss Louise to line up with clock faces.  Type onto drum the words "featuring Miss Louise".  Position third image of Miss Louise and "bring to back" one layer. 

From The Measure of Time pack, find word label "At this Moment".  Convert to png file.   I added a paper bag background.  Position word label onto banner and adjust size and position. 

From The Measure of Time pack, select paper with clocks.  Position banner on top and crop clock paper.  Add a frame around the clock paper.  Add a frame and 3-D shadowing around banner for dimension.

Add a sepia color wash over the entire piece.
