Welcome Back

Here’s what happens if you scan it your favourite acrylic backgrounds into a computer and merge them. Its so ethereal, I love it. This will have more done to it as I add some text or images to it. It looks almost pearlescent.

Have I show you these two backgrounds yet? This might turn into a massive tease if not but I promise to share my original art this came from. As ever Winsor & Newton Galeria paint was used for the original art.

Do tell me if you like it in your comments.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

Today I’d like to share a picture of my first digital ATC.

My First Digital ATC

My First Digital ATC

About a year ago my lovely husband gave me a piece of software by Serif called Digital Scrapbook Artist v2. Now it had taken me a year of my life and an online course to get to grips with even the basics of Adobe Photoshop Elements, so when I saw the starting screen on DSA2 I admit it I feared it would take as long and it took me a long time to actually get over that and just try it.

There was a lovely lady on Create and Craft/Ideal World demoing the software, and suddenly I got it. The digi kits you can get either individually as downloads from Daisy Trail or as collections on disc are truly stunning and I was lucky that after getting all hyper about the software, my long-suffering husband didn’t give up on me but gave me the rest of the available digi kits as part of my Christmas present. Isn’t he wonderful :)

As regular readers will know I am a member of Stamping Mad forum, and often take part in their ATC swap, well for January Glitter Monkey set the theme to digital, and I was away! A perfect excuse to get out the DSA2 and have a play. After a couple of very entertaining evenings I created the ATC you see above. It’s so much fun! Wish I’d got into this last year, it would have made my immobility much less boring!

Hoping to get the latest version of the software, Craft Artist soon. It’s the next generation of the software and has lots of card templates on it to design onto. If you haven’t heard of any of this stuff, check out the links at the end to find out more.

Hope you have fun, what ever you craft.
