    Selective Color - please follow the instructions carefully to be eligible to go into the draw for the prize.

    Welcome to the last challenge for November. In this challenge you'll be creating a black and white photo with a pop of color, and then going on to create a layout using ONLY black, white, and grey for everything else on the page. Here's how to go about it.

    1. First duplicate your photo.
    2. With the duplicated layer selected, create a black and white adjustment layer: Image/Adjustments/Black & White

    3. With the black & white layer selected, add a white layer mask: Layer/Layer Mask/Reveal All.
    4. Using a soft black brush, and with the white layer mask selected, 'paint' over the desired area to reveal the original color.

    5. Now carry on to create a layout with your photo, using ONLY colours of black, white, and grey for everything else on the page.
    6. You can find black and white elements and papers in these collections by NBK Design
    Various Stamps
    Spring Flings & Easter Things {Paperset: Floral Chalk}
    artCRUSH No3 {Gessopieces}
    Over the Rainbow {Paperset: Cardboard Pattern}

    7. You can also change the color of elements and papers you already have in your stash. Here are some of the methods I used:
    a) Select an element and press Ctrl + Shift + U to desaturate the color.
    b) This method works well with Magiclights: Desaturate the magiclight by pressing Ctrl + Shift + U. Duplicate the desaturated layer. Then apply a linear dodge or difference blend mode to the duplicate.
    c) If you want to invert the color of a black or white element, simply press Ctrl + I. This is good for changing black stamps to white.
    d) Use brushes with white or black as your color.

    And that's all there is to it!
    Here is a sample layout from CT Cindy, made with Delights of December

    My layout (at the top) was created with:
    Spring Flings & Easter Things {Paperset: Floral Chalk}
    Colors of India - ABP 1
    Dec 2015 - Bits & Pieces (diamond heart)
    Strength of a Woman - Gessopieces
    Spring Flings & Easter Things - Magiclights

    SUMMARY: Use the selective color technique on a photo and then use that photo in a layout. The only color on your page should be the selective color in your photo. The rest must be black, white, or grey.

    RULES
    This challenge runs from 26 Nov to 09 Dec.
    One lucky scrapper will be randomly chosen to win a $5 coupon to the NBK Design store.
    You must use 100% of NBK Design Products.
    You may use a template from a designer at The Lily Pad.
    Post your layout in the NBK Design Gallery and in this forum, and link your layout to the gallery.

    And lastly, have fun!

    I'm the first! I was awake at 3:30 a.m. and happened to see the challenge. So rather than toss & turn, I created a page.

    My macaw photos weren't great but selective color really helped hilight them better.
