For Natasha

This post is dedicated to my friend Natasha Forder whose amazing photos and creative layouts have especially inspired me in the last few days to try some of her techniques based on her work 'Drama in Dumfries and Galloway'

The idea was to create a bit of drama but leave the layout fairly simple to allow the photo to be the main focal point.

A scrap of scrapping


It's official, I am a Steampunk addict and I just love this photo of one of my husbands ancestors and thought this fabulous steampunk kit called 'A scrap of Steampunk' by Lynne Anzelc Designs was perfect to use with it.



Another page using a Lynne Anzelc kit - this time using 
'A scrap of Art' - next to Steampunk I love Arty/Grungy things and this has some lovely arty pieces in.

The latest digi-kit from Algera Designs is called 'My Dear Friend' and it is gorgeous!
It has a soft pink, cream and brown colour pallete. 
Here are some of my CT pages using it.
I just added the images (credit to Magicmoonlight images) and a quote on the third layout - then using the fabulous Serif Craft Artist software these are what I ended up creating.

International Digital Scrapbook Day

This Saturday 2nd November 2013 is I.D.S.D - International Digital Scrapbooking Day and to celebrate this  Algera Designs has a great sale on now until 5th November.
A digital page I created using one of the lovely kits from Algera Designs  called 'Halloween Treat'. For this layout design, I used the pieces in the kit that weren't for Halloween to show just how versatile this is and added the image of the woman.

Gothic Autumn

Hi everyone, following on from the other day here are a few more of my CT pages made for 
Using the beautiful  new digi-kit called 'Gothic Autumn'.
I have added an image to each of the layouts, other than the second page as the girl is in the kit.
Also added some words or a quote. Most of my digi-scrap pages are made mainly using Serif Craft Artist software.
There was a lovely straw wreath in this kit, and I used some of the flowers, berries and leaves etc over the it to enhance it.


A bit of blending and effects within the software allowed me to change the colours to some lovely mauves/purples to fit with this great image of a Gothic building.

Lots of blending with the image and on the papers to get the background effect.


To finish this lay off I cheated a little and took it into Photoshop Elements to get the split pages effect. I must make a template to do that in my usual software as sure it would be dead easy to replicate and gives a nice effect.
