Handmade Beaded Jewelry

Monday, August 23, 2010

This past month I have been taking my new knowledge of Photoshop Elements and incorporating it into my quilting.
I made this Photo Album for a friend as a Birthday present. I used photos of our meet up in Rome with the Traveling Scarves. A group of Ladies, who all met online on TripAdvisor.com in the Rome forum.

On this page I used a photo I took in Rome and using PSE I changed it from a color photo to a vintage photo. Place it on a textured background and using layers and the eraser tool blurred the edges. Then I pulled up the group photo and did the same, laying it on top of the previous photo. Printed it on TAP by Lesley Riley and ironed it on fabric. 

Using the drop shadow tool in effects, I laid the 3 photos over a texture background that I created by using a photo of a statue from the Angel Bridge in Rome . Then I added a architectural stamps from the brush tool. These were printed on Fabric sheets.

All were embellished with ribbon trims and beads. 


  1. What a nice job you did on this, Maxine! I love the way you put it together and the cover is perfect. I'm sure the recipient will be thrilled.
