International Digital Scrapbook Day

This Saturday 2nd November 2013 is I.D.S.D - International Digital Scrapbooking Day and to celebrate this  Algera Designs has a great sale on now until 5th November.
A digital page I created using one of the lovely kits from Algera Designs  called 'Halloween Treat'. For this layout design, I used the pieces in the kit that weren't for Halloween to show just how versatile this is and added the image of the woman.

Gothic Autumn

Hi everyone, following on from the other day here are a few more of my CT pages made for 
Using the beautiful  new digi-kit called 'Gothic Autumn'.
I have added an image to each of the layouts, other than the second page as the girl is in the kit.
Also added some words or a quote. Most of my digi-scrap pages are made mainly using Serif Craft Artist software.
There was a lovely straw wreath in this kit, and I used some of the flowers, berries and leaves etc over the it to enhance it.


A bit of blending and effects within the software allowed me to change the colours to some lovely mauves/purples to fit with this great image of a Gothic building.

Lots of blending with the image and on the papers to get the background effect.


To finish this lay off I cheated a little and took it into Photoshop Elements to get the split pages effect. I must make a template to do that in my usual software as sure it would be dead easy to replicate and gives a nice effect.

thanks so much for stopping by x

Typography and more

Hi everyone well it's not quite as warm as yesterday but not too bad -  not the usual October weather though, I'm sure we have things blooming in the garden which don't normally at this time of year.
Today I have 2 layouts using a new technique I am learning about and below that some CT pages for Algera Designs
For several days I have been playing, learning a new digital technique creating a 'Typographic' effect on my images. It has been driving me mad trying to get the look I want.
I think there are a few variations on this but I quite like the look of an image all made from words.
Next I hope to try to get the same effect on some hands on crafting, maybe using rubber stamps and stencils.
But for now the 2 women below are digitally made and the image used from a Serif CD.


Below are four of my CT pages made for ALGERA DESIGNS using the latest 'Gothic Autumn' digi-kit. I added some images and words/quotes and some layouts have blending and effects done using my software.

Thanks for stopping by today x
