Moonlit Oasis

Moonlit Oasis

The gorgeous inspiration photo by Captain Kimo, from which our palette was derived, was of twin

mosque towers in Bahrain. As I was thinking of a theme and title, I was inspired by the mid-

Eastern subject of the photo. I started thinking about the Arabian desert and finally settled

upon Moonlit Oasis as a title and theme.

For this round, we are tell what tools we used to create our kit. My kit was created in PS CS5. There are 10 papers and 24 elements. The added color is violet.

For the papers, I combined standard PS brushes and textures with my own overlays, textures,

brushes, patterns, etc and with the overlays supplied in the CU gift.

The 24 elements are as follows:

those Created by me in PS using standard brushes, shapes, patterns and filters and CU as


pyramid, stone wall, stone well, palm tree (palm fronds are based on one of the CU leaf

templates), two unique border elements, circle frame (decorated with swirl from CU notecard

pack), film strip frame (used modified CU style), glitter flourish (used CU glitter style), leaf

sprig (used a modified CU layer style), moon and clouds, rolled flower (used a modified CU

style), tag (string extracted), pearl scatter, and washi tape.

those recolored and decorated/styled from CU gift:

butterfly clip, Journal block and pocket, 2 striped ribbons, square frame

those extracted from my own photos/scans:

flower, fabric flower (button center from CU pack), stitched bow, stitched knotted ribbon

[not many extracts in this week's kit, burned out on extractions last week, LOL]

Lovely soft kit. I like your pyramid and stone well - very evocative of a desert scene. Love your choice of added colour too.
