Create a Custom Overlay with a Scanner
Design by Sarah Bowen
Multiple photos and embellishments combined in an elegant way give this layout a homey, handmade feel. Adding an overlay created from a scanned floral image brings depth and interest to the subtly striped blue background. Setting the overlay mode to Color Burn highlights the understated shade variations.
