Fly Above the Waves

I was playing with Photoshop the other night, blending different photos with papers. I absolutely love how the cream digital paper from Crewel & Unusual  blended with a photo to make the background look like canvas.  Since I really love the background, I kept the photos and embellishments to a minimum. The frame and border actually comes as one layer so I didn't have to do much but add a photo and find the perfect sentiment. Easy peasy! This is definitely a print worthy digital page!

Club Scrap digital papers, stamps and embellishments.

I've had several questions regarding printing digital pages. I don't print out many of them, just my favorites. I've only used Persnickety Prints for my 12x12 pages. I really like the quality of the printing and papers. I usually add a few of them to an order of 4x6s to save on shipping. A few times a year they have a sale costing $1.49 per 12x12 print. I have a photo stand I bought at Michael's that I keep in our entryway. I change the displayed pages regularly. Some of the pages I use for the title and/or end page of an album. Many of the digital pages end up as my computer background or screen saver slide show.

Have a fabulous week!

  2. I love playing with blending, you get such cool results! Great printing and display tips. I have printed on my home printer using 8.5*11 photo paper. I resize to 8*8. I was worried about the journaling being too small, but so far so good. Thanks for sharing.

Orchard Watercolor

Welcome to September's Artist Team Blog Hop brought to you by Club Scrap. This month we've been challenged to incorporate watercolor techniques with our projects. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to dust off those Faber-Castell Gelatos.  If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Club Scrap. If you're already hopping and linked to me from Tina's Blog, you're in the right spot. Gelatos are acid-free pigment ink sticks that can be used with or without water.  I love the bright colors and creamy texture of the Gelatos.  The fact they look like lipstick tubes is kinda cute too. 1. Directly color the stamp with your gelatos. I usually start with the lightest color first and work to the darkest. 2. Mist water directly on to the stamp. 3. Stamp image onto paper.  I used all sorts of papers: cardstock, watercolor and mixed media papers. I d…
