Over the past few weeks I’ve become intrigued by digital scrapbooking. Where’s this come from?
Two of my favorite bloggers, Ali Edwards and Cathy Zielske, have been creating digital, traditional and hybrid layouts for years. But since I started this blog in 2007, all I’ve made is paper projects – handmade cards, scrapbook pages, art journals, mini books, ATCs, travel journals etc.
I’ve always considered myself a paper girl.
Whatever the cause or inspiration, it’s really piqued my interest. Two sites that I’m loving are Paislee Press written by Liz Tamanaha and her store The Lilypad. I like her minimalist approach and use of white space.
So here’s my first digital scrapbook page. What do you think?
It took a couple of hours to put together – not bad for a first time. And that’s how long a traditional page would take me any way. I think the fact that I’m comfortable with Photoshop helped.
And it was fun! I love the freedom to move things around until I got the look I liked. I love being able to re-size, re-color and crop page elements. It’s hard to believe there are 24 different layers on this page. I think I might be hooked.
Are you a papercrafter who’s dabbled in digital? I’d love to hear your experiences.
