From Pixels to Paper
Hi, Karen M here. I have a confession - sometimes I go over the the dark side and scrap digitally. Not so much now but there was a time, when I was on a digital design team, I scrapped extensively in pixels. I still retained my love of paper scrapping and as I only ever stored my digital layouts on my laptop and never printed them out, would sometimes, if I particularly liked a page, convert it into a paper page for my album.
Last week, I was having a clear out on my laptop and came across this digital page I had made a couple of years ago and thought it would translate perfectly into a paper one.
I cut the frame on my Craft Robo (a very ancient silhouette) and that was my starting point. I then sorted through my photos to find one that would suit the frame and off I went. Once I had cut and punched out the remaining elements for the page from the new 7 Gypsies Trousseau range, I inked all the pieces with Pumice Stone ink.
I thought the background Kraft was too plain and so a few spritzes of watered down white paint and Cosmic Shimmer later
I was happy with the result.
Added a few buttons
and some Prima flowers and I had a page that was made in an instant as I already had the digital version to copy.
and how fortunate that one of the papers had a shortened version of my daughter's name printed on it!
Do you ever go over the DARK SIDE?
