So have you seen all the fabulous new releases at Doodle Pantry yet? OH, they are so awesome. I just HAD to get this "Cozy Gazebo" as it's so versatile and full of potential--- with just a li'l wood paper, and Flower Soft it really comes alive! (you can click the pic for a closer look)
For my sunset, I played a little in my photoshop program. Really all I did was create a rectangle and then gave it a "Gradient Overlay" (there's several rainbow choices). This one seemed perfect for a sunset, although I did tone it down with the contrast a bit. Then I gave it an "Inner Shadow" and turned up the texture on it which gave this nice sand or wood grain effect. Then I cut it out leaving some white around and layered it onto some real wood (Bird's Eye wood) and sponged the edges with a cocoa ink. The Sign Hanger is a Sizzix die by Tim Holtz. Kinda makes it look like a realty sign... almost =) The white scalloped border up top ties in the scallops in the gazebo digi. And last but certainly not least, I added some pretty Flower Soft to the bushes and trellis' and added some prima flowers in the corner.
The challenge at Doodle Pantry is a "LOVE" theme, so come on over and play along!! One player will win $10 in digis and 3 will get a Top 3 badge for your blog!
