My Special Valentine!

Happy Valentines Day, Friends! I have a very special layout to share with you! I'm very blessed to have a hubby that has been by my side for over 23 years, loving me everyday and holding my hand until falling asleep every night. He is my rock, my everything and my forever!

I enjoyed using the burlap for the base page with the damask overlay. It gave it the formal look it needed and was a little unexpected!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

My Precious Valentines!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Thought I'd share a quick and easy layout with you. I was inspired by Becky Higgins and Project Life. Wanting to give it a try, I decided to make my own digital version using a grid on Photoshop Elements. The grid made building a frame fairly easy. Saving it in a digital format means that it can be used over and over again, which I love! The digital papers and embellies were from the kit Pink, by Vinnie Pearce, purchased from Scrapbook Graphics.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Steampunk Glamour!

Hi Everyone! I have a fun piece to share with you. It was a complete surprise, as I was just playing around with digi masks, brushes and blending modes. Jamie's picture reminded me of Vintage Hollywood so I wanted to use browns and creams for a sepia finish. As you can see, masks can be used in many ways. Instead of using them to achieve s seamless blended finish, I extended the edges beyond the photo, adding more than one mask, leaving a blotchy painted look to the page. Adding a Damask style brush added some elegance, while using the Steampunk brush as a crown added a bit of whimsy. I finished with a piece of jewelry from my Grandmother. It's all about having fun…Hope you'll join me!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
