Pretty in pink.

Our advanced digital scrapbooking class starts soon so I thought I'd create a page using two of the papers you will learn to make. The pattern maker is a fabulous way to create digital paper and this gingham design is a good example. The background paper is so quick and easy using my grunge overlay and I've added a spring flower overlay created by Rene Bross. Adding a torn edge is another class project and it looks great on any paper. The course outline for the advanced course includes, Making digital papers like those you see above, collage papers using ephemera, photos and illustrations, bevelled and embossed papers and that's just in week 1.

In week 2 we will be creating a page curl from scratch, corner folds with custom shadows, digital tags and stickers. In Week 3 you will learn to create a postage stamp, postage cancellation stamp, a postcard journaling mat, create and install brushes and align gridlines.

Week 4 will be devoted to learning how to extract part of a photo to pop out of its frame and a beautiful brass brooch frame with a reflected glass overlay.
