WOW, i finally got to do a page! I definitely lost my mojo for a while. Anyway, this page was inspired by the*amazing* Amanda Taylor's (taylormade designs) work. I could stay in her gallery all day long, just in awe of what she does! while i was browsing her gallery i realized that i had never tried a clipping mask - so here is my first go at it, the photo mask is by Annie Manning (oscraps.com), and you just plop that puppy right down over your photo and voila! (sorry, but i was amazed, haha!) I used a background paper by fei-fei's stuff, some swirly elements by kittydesigns (oscraps.com) and a hodgepodge of brushes, including some of the most incredibly beautiful brushes I've ever come across at amadaun.net. The journaling is obviously from Peter Gabriel's In Your Eyes (my all time favorite song, like,*ever*). Thanks for taking a peek :)
Hi everyone! I have been taking a bit of a rest from my computer lately (haven't been feeling too great b/c of *awful* TMJ headaches). I wanted to post a big thanks to Jill (scrap-pit) and Renee (scrap-o-holic) for leaving me this super sweet blog award, thanks ladies! so for my part, here are my (top) 5 addictions:
- Trying to learn Photoshop (of course, hahaha!)
- Sprite with tons of ice & a straw
- Brownies, well actually anything chocolate...I gotta have it, everyday.
- (and the newest) crocheting.
I know, pretty exciting stuff huh? I suddenly feel the need to go get something pierced or tatooed because I feel lame!
This page is for my CT role @ bwscrapbooking.com; Its from their Grateful Bounty Kit, which I really like :) I cropped the pic with my elliptical tool, made a work path, feathered my selection and placed it onto the frame (using the multiply filter). I also distressed the edges of my paper and elements using the burn tool, and embossed the frame to give it a little depth. This kit is really fantastic, definitely go check it out!
Yes, I even though she just turned 3 I still call her my baby girl, haha! When I came across this word art in my stash (that i totally forgot I had!) I just had to use it...Anyway, I got some awesome shots yesterday with my new camera (thanks mom & dad!) when we went outside to play. Thank goodness for this camera, my old one was dying for sure, and it didnt have half the mp's this one has, im totally in heaven! This was fun to do, a little tricky since im so new to photoshop, but really fun. I used the mag. lasso & magic wand tools to crop the background out, and then zoomed in really close to use the eraser and smudge tools to refine the edges, which was a little daunting because her hair, but I just played around with the strengths of each tool and I really ended up liking the result ;) I also adjusted the brightness/contrast of the photo and used color burn for my layer options. The word art is a collab. by Taylor Made & Vicki Stegall (endearment kit i think) @ oscraps.com and the background paper is by ScrapKitten Designs (Shabby Spring Parfait Kit) @ scrapitsassy.com.
I did this page with the awesome freebie kit (in the Jan/Feb issue of the Scrap N'art Ezine) from oscraps.com. the papers and word art are by Taylor Made Designs, and the "glitzsplat" in the bottom corner is by Vicki Stegall. As i was putting this page together, I was laughing to myself thinking that Angelina Jolie's got nothin' on my kid - her lips have been full and beautiful from the second she was born (she can later thank Dad for that!) Anyway, thank you to Scrap N'art, Oscraps.com and all the designers that put this kit together, i love it!
