Day 78 - Tuesday 18th March

Look at the stars, Look how they shine for you, And everything you do, Yeah they were all YELLOW" – ColdPlay

A week of colour prompts.

Last week’s prompts were all a bit heavy and hard going so this week I am going to ensure that all the prompts are lighthearted. Zoë’s favourite colour at the moment is yellow and her new medicine is yellow and she loves it!!!! Better than the bright pink egg smelling stuff from yesterday.
The other ladies on UK Scrappers have taken some fantastic photo with the use clever software techniques to colour them. This has made me want to have a go at doing this. I have downloaded a free trial version of Photoshop Elements and I have taken a photo of the fruit bowl with apples, grapes and bananas in it. I plan on making the picture black and white and then colour the banana in yellow.
The technique for this is:
Duplicate the photo into another layer and turned the top layer black and white. Then use the eraser in the top layer to rub over the required part so the underneath coloured layer shows through.
