I'm catching up. I've done the first 3 steps so far, and have used some techniques I don't normally use, but it's starting to look interesting. The background colour is a contrast colour to the bright pink coat my daughter is wearing in the photos.
No temporary gallery at the moment, so here's my first steps.
It looks really good @Angela Toucan . Post your final page in the progressive gallery, so everyone else will see it too. I love how you used leaves as elements for a photo with leaves. And I am glad you are using techniques that you don't normally use. Thanks for playing along.
