Project 4 – Photoshop Montage


  1. Description: This project was inspired by the young women I teach at church. They are a brilliant group of young women who are shining examples to those around them, but sometimes I fear that they forget their own worth.
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, Steps taken while designing): In Photoshop I layered the image of the girl on top of the image of the stars and created a mask. I then blended the girls hair into the stars in the layer below. I added the text and used layer styles to bring out the title of text. I also used the clone stamp to blend some branches and blades of grass into the gray and white background.
  3. Message: That all women are daughters of a loving God and that he created them to be beautiful, modest, and gracious.
  4. Audience: All women, but young women in particular.
  5. Top Thing Learned: I learned how to use layer masks in Photoshop.
  6. Filter / Colorization used and where it was applied: I used embossing, a drop shadow, and violet inner glow on the words “Daughter” and “King”
  7. Color scheme and color names: Analogous – violet, purple, indigo, blue
  8. Title Font Name & Category: Hello Script – Script
  9. Copy Font Name & Category: Palatino Linotype – Old Style
  10. Thumbnails of Images used
