I am so excited to share with all of you this project!! I had so much creating it :) This month I am taking my first scrapbooking online class: Toolbox by Studio Calico... and I am already loving it!!! It has just started but I am finding so much inspiration, new creative techniques and other ways to document my memories in the videos/PDFs.
This week the class is focused on digital and hybrid pages. And as you can check here, I am totally new at this!! But I am really enjoying this fun technique. These past months I bought some SC digital stamps (as they are cheaper than buying the whole kit just for the stamps...) but in the end I never used them; simply because I didn't know what could I achieve with them. So glad that I decided to take this class!
At first I started creating my base background on Photoshop with the chevron template and the different digital papers offered by the class. I also had fun changing the colors of the papers to achieve my desired color combo. Then, I played with the digital brushes to make my title and to add some little details here and there. I am so in love with the ink splatters!! With Photoshop I could even matched the ink splatters with the color of the papers. And if I don't like the way it turns I can just delated and start over again. Such a lovely technique!! love it!
Once I had all placed, I printed on a 12x12 cardstock. I printed twice to be able to give some dimensions to some of the chevrons and hearts. This way the LO become less flat and more fluid.
To finish the page, I added some of the class printables (I also matched the colors with the chevron background in Photosohop), enamel dots, veneers, buttons and a cute and small journaling. This pop out the page and give it more texture so it doesn't look so digital.
I hope you like this!! So excited to see all your hybrid pages based on this fantastic class!
