Week 34: Busy

What do you do when its 100+ degrees outside and your internet connection goes on the fritz? Well, if you’re me, you get out the black tempera paint and use artificial plant leaves and flower –  and every kind of texture (think bubble wrap, corrugated cardboard, etc) you can put your hands on – to make “stamps” of them.  Then you scan them, extract them in Photoshop and use them as design tools and embellishments in your scrapbooking products.

Five hours later, I’d scanned 150 pages that are now ready for Photoshop work. It was funny getting my hands dirty, but I’m very glad our connectivity problems have been resolved!

    Very clever, and you’ve set yourself up with some very nice brushes, patterns and textures.

    the world of scrapbooking is amazing…and that you scanned 150 pages means that you too are amazing aside from creative…bravo!
