If nothing else, digital products certainly allow you to use things over and over again in different ways. So, I thought, what a super opportunity to highlight using digital stamps in a multitude of ways. Earlier this month I used this same digital stamp kit Hero Arts PT004 Poetic Petals in a hybrid fashion where I printed, coloured and cut them out and created a layout that fit the Bright and Beautiful theme quite beautifully. A week later, I am back with another bright and beautiful layout using the flowers in a digital format.
Digital designing is fun as you get to use things again and again, plus you can tweak the colours to match perfectly. Flower colour not quite right, just adjust it and it is perfect and being able to digitally manipulate elements is just cool. It is very important to remember to put a drop shadow on everything, otherwise it all can look flat and just not quite right.
To create this layout, I once again used elements from various purchases from Sweet Shoppe Designs. I do apologise that I do not know which packs they are from as I have split them up and grouped things together to make it easier for me to find elements. Firstly I created my paper layers and then used one of each of the flowers on each panel, duplicating them up and colouring them a little darker.
Once that background was created, I then built my ‘layers’ up using various elements, leaving room for a picture. I then went and got one of the flowers and went back to the background panel and used it like a stamp around all the elements, but in the background. Some final gold sprinkles which I also sent to the back so it sits atop the background.
The final result, bright and beautiful once again and it is just gorgeous and fun to do. Much quicker than hybrid scrapping that is for sure. I do urge you to try digital scrapbooking if you have not done so already. Even a great option for travelling and then you can put it together into a book and have that printed out as a lovely gift for family at Christmas. So many options. I use photoshop, but you can use a multitude of programs. Pixlr is a free online program that you can use.
Anyway, have a super month everyone, be kind, be generous and be creative. I shall see you in a week with another layout using this same digital stamp set. Not sure what I am going to do …
