4/16/11 Digital Collage

I've been struggling for awhile to learn Photoshop Elements and it's been a series of baby steps.  Some forward, some backward.  Anyway, I was reading Somerset's Digital Studio magazine and saw the article by some designers at Deviant Scrap, so I've ordered a couple of their kits and did this collage.  As a bonus if you buy the Spring 2011 Digital Studio magazine you get a coupon for a free download kit, which I think I'm going to use for my next collage. The girl is from Paper Whimsy, another sie with wonderful vintage feeling images, both digital and on paper.  It's still really rough - I know what I'd like to do to finish it, but for now it is what it is.

4/15/11 Little Books

Lenna Andrews has another swap!  Her swaps are always well organized, the other artists are great and she gives tons of ideas, inspiration and instruction.  This one is the Little Book Swap and since I love making books and participating in her swaps it was a no brainer.  The books have to be at least 1" on each side, but not more than 5".
And, it's a perfect excuse to spend some money at Michaels and Archivers - I'm taking my niece there tomorrow.
