Love Colour

I found the quote below and felt it really conveyed what I was trying to achieve with this brightly coloured layout.

“The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most.” 
John Ruskin

Created using a plain background from 'Natural' blended with a paper recoloured yellow, plus elements from 'Precious digikits' from my Algera Designs range. 

Using the colour picker tool in Craft Artist 2 software, took colours from the flower and recoloured lace and frames. Cropped materials to layer.

All digikits available in store

Scrapbooking for Pleasure

Scrapbooking for pleasure...

The radio is on, music playing gently in the background and I have been thoroughly enjoying some digital scrapbooking. I spent time this morning concentrating on one new contemporary style layout with some texture and pattern including a vibrant blue colour for pop.

Combining Surprise & Textured Love digikits from my Algera Designs range plus a Digiboss overlay from Digiboss Essentials - Serif. This added additional interest to the background. Some Papers cropped and re-coloured to a bright blue. Splots have difference blend applied to change their colour. Instant effect - rustic metal and shadow added to the star element, text added to complete the layout. Created in Craft Artist 2 software.

compatible with Serif Craft Artist software and Photoshop

Here Comes The Sun

Sometimes a song just pops into your head and today 'Here Comes The Sun' was my Inspiration for this new layout idea. It is really uplifting so I chose a brightly coloured digikit to match the feeling. Taking three different papers and cropping so that each third had a range of plain, patterned and textured adding interest. I kept the framing and embellishment detailing mostly to the centre strip and added some wording to complete. The digikit used is called 'Sunshine' which has some bold bright colours which are very on trend this season. 
This digikit is available in digital format for Craft Artist and Photoshop users alike. hope you enjoyed seeing the idea, have fun scrapbooking and creating.

Layout Idea for a Scrapbook page...Sharing Inspiration

For this layout idea created today it focuses detail on the top third of the page. Using transparency elipse and then blending a repeated and flipped photo onto the background paper. Then Overlaying a patterned material and cropping it to cover two thirds of the page.  Elements and lace are layered for interest and decorate the central framed image. This was coloured and buttons added at the bottom of the page.
The screen shot below shows how on layer 2 I have used two papers one is re-coloured yellow and has blend colour burn applied with a transparency of 47% and then a lilac top layer of material has overlay blend added. Creating this lovely colour variation to the layout.
I am a real fan of experimenting further with a digikit and blending, colour changing to achieve a mix of looks from one kit... it can really make your digikit collection work even further for you.

The kit used is called 'Tranquility' and is available at Escape And Scrap where you can see this and others in my Algera Designs collection along with kits from many other designers.
