Back to the photo... After applying a couple of textures to the photo to warm it up and give it a bit of a vintage feel, I added a gradient layer that Kim generously gave us in Beyond Layers. I wanted to add personalized text, done in hand lettering (to use my new found lettering skills from my Letter Love 101 course) but I didn't want to write on the printed photo. I thought about how Kim makes textures and I figured out that I could write the text on paper, scan it in as a jpeg and then add it as a layer in Photoshop. This also allowed me to write a little bigger and then scale it down on the photo. I like how the text hugs the shape of the lamp and how the light seems to glow from lamp as well as on the teddy bears.
