Christmas Photoshop background and Tag
I started to create a project that included 50+ tiny die cut flowers, a styrofoam ball and a (really hot) glue gun but as it neared completion I realized that I didn't really like the results. I went to my computer to see if I could be inspired by the Graphics Fairy.
What I eventually created was a background image. I used a beautiful end paper and began by making it wider. Next I added the reindeer image but changed the color to match the background.
I added French sheet music to add a little more Christmas cheer. And a Christmas headline. Finally I added a fancy frame to add some formality to the layout.
I changed some colors, erased parts, faded images and just tried to digitally distress some edges. This could be used for a Christmas card. If you would like a larger version of this file then please leave a comment and I'll link a bigger file.
I had fun playing in Photoshop with so many lovely images. This was also a lot less painful than using a (really hot) glue gun.
After I created this background I decided that this would also work as a tag. I had to work a few changes but I like the way it turned out.
