I used the photo to make the background. First I used seamless tiling,then used Weaver(Toadies). I then duplicated the layer made a selection which I used hard light on
Used a mask on photo.

I haven't used filters too much, I keep forgetting about them. On this page I used Underpainting on my paper, then masked in 2 photos, one of a lake, and one of the mountain. Then played around with more masking and blending of both of the pictures and the paper.

Blending modes on papers, elements and word art

I think your page is absolutely beautiful, and the sentiment is a good one too.

I've moved a lot too, and hate it with a passion. Good luck and I hope all goes well and you will have time to play soon. 'Time'...just another 4-letter word.
