Reading Buddies

I finally took the time to take the first lesson in my Digi: In Deep class from Jessica Sprague.  Boy, I learned a lot.  I had to review the videos on some of the tasks just to know what to do.  I love all the new techniques I learned.  This class definitely takes you to another level of digi scrapping.  Here is what I learned:

  • Created complex shapes with the Photoshop drawing tools, including the vector drawing tools and the marquee tools
  • Used compound shapes as clipping masks
  • Created straight scalloped edges on patterned paper
  • Added "pop" to a photo with a colored overlay
  • Wrapped ribbon around objects
  • "Hung" a tag from ribbon
  • Created compound masks for a single sheet of patterned paper
  • Created a semi-transparent journaling box with shaped text in it
  • Re-colored textured items on their own layer

It is so much fun to scrap pictures of my boys.  Scrapbooking is my first love of paper crafting and will always be part of my creativity.

Look how little they they are in this layout!
