Oh, such a bad blogger, I’ve just been playing with all the goodies and not sharing the fun with you.
I’ve got to tell you about this new toy I’ve got from the wonderful Melly, Puzzled Photo Masks. This is sooo much fun I can’t even tell you, and Melly’s made it so easy that… well even I can do it! ha-ha!
You’ve gotta see what I’ve made so far (well other than the stunning sunset photo in the example above, he-he.) When the Sweet Melly asked to include it in her product packaging and I (of course) said yes! My dreams of the next Thomas Mangelson is starting to come true! And if you don’t know who he is you’ve got to check out his absolutely stunning photography, here’s my favorite.
We have a fancy framed up version in our living room, I love it so much. She reminds me of my dear sweet old lady dog, Raskal.
Can you see the resemblance? The salesman at the gallery said that the bear is a female that had spent the morning down on the river scarfing down salmon after salmon during their up river run and crawled herself up to this old log and settled down for a long nap. Whether that’s true or not I don’t know but I love this picture and a “story” is always nice, but isn’t that what scrapbooking all about?
So anyway back to Melly, and here fab new toy. Now I know this goes with out saying but this is great tool for ANY kit you already own, but of course I will show you my examples using Melly’s super fantastic and versatile products, because that’s how I roll!
On this one I put a little perspective “magic” on the puzzle field, which is super easy to do in Elements and I think it helps the illusion of the pieces falling into place.

at least I could swear that’s where it’s from
but I can’t find it there, but I did find it here.
I want to mention that these masks do work in Elements (I had some problems with E5 but I know it will work with E6,
but that’s all probably operator error ;o) ) And of course with the real version of Photoshop it will work too. Melly has written up some super simple directions so you can “make it work!” and if not you can contact her via email (in the info kit) or leave me a comment here and see what I can do to help you or I’ll get you to Melly.
Or if you have questions about adding perspective
let me know and I’ll write up a tutorial.
I hope you’ll check out Melly’s Puzzled Photo Masks
and all her other fabulous products at DSDI.
Bye for now, I’ll be back soon with more fabulousness!
