I'm really proud of these two pages. I did a bunch of techniques on them. The layout is scraplifted from a layout a bunch of people have on the forum. But I made it myself instead of spending the $4 to download it. I learned how to make the stitching look wonky and more "realistic." It's so funny... in paper scrapbooking you would want to make your stitching straight and make your pictures lay down flat. But in digital scrapbooking you want things to NOT be perfect so they look more real!
I made the drop shadows on those photos to make them look like the corners are raised. Again, figured it out myself so I didn't have to pay the $3 to download one. Also figured out the EASY way to recolor elements tonight! Oh man! I was doing it the hard way, messing with the hue/saturation. Turns out you can just push a button and "recolor" any color you want! Yay!!! Also proud of those little chalk swirls. They started out black and I made them look like chalk.
These were just really fun to work on. I actually spent two evenings working on them! Jess asked if we had pictures that just made us happy to look at them... I have scrapbooking pages that just make me happy. These are on the list! :)
