    Amie, sorry for the delay in answering. The challenge is to use only one photo that is in b/w for the blending into the background and using that same photo in color cropped/framed.

    I want to play around with this technique a bit more. Don't love it for this photo the way I thought I would. I may try another layout for it.

    Well, that took some brain power, but it sure was fun!

    [edit] And then I uploaded the wrong pic! Apparently I used all the brain power on this layout. LOL!
    [edit2] The layout here doesn't have the B&W background, but if you click through to the Gallery it's the correct version.

    Any shape is fine Liz. I have that noted in step 10:

    10. Make a Rectangle shape using the marquee tool, and flood fill (using the paint bucket tool) with any color over the b/w photo that you want to have framed and pop out. I am using the rectangle marquee over the area of the tree in the window. (Fill the marquee rectangle using the paint bucket tool with any color as your foreground. You will be clipping your photo to this area.)

    [Note: If you choose to use a custom shape that is fine too. You can use whatever shape you want as long as it is over the b/w photo and framed.]


    Enjoy!

    This was a great challenge - very fun and informative. I do hope the masking makes the grade, if it doesn't I can redo with brushes only.

    This is my very first time using this technique... thank you so much for your very detailed tutorial! I'm not totally satisfied with this, but I'm so glad I tried and I will certainly try it again on another layout!
