Family Portrait Storyboard

My storyboard special edits are a hot item lately! Besides this one, I have 3 more packages I will be designing storyboards for. It's fun to create a custom look for each family's group of photos. This storyboard was based on a special edit I did last year, but definitely customized to fit the pictures from their shoot.

Here's how I did the blue background:

1. Flat colored base. I chose the color with the hues and shades of the photographs in mind.

2. Texturized so it looks a little like linen-finished paper.

3. Decorated with a subtle floral brush in a darker shade than the base color.

4. A custom texture overlay to add a little more depth.

5. A second layer of floral brushwork. Done!
