doin' it digi stylee

Yup I lost my digi virginity!

I totally blame Katie fancy knickers (that is what she really likes to be known as!), and Yizz too- who has been on our case for an age!

For those who didn't see it, Kate wrote a fab series of articles for creative scrapbooking mag, and the best part was I UNDERSTOOD EVERY WORD! So, yesterday I bit the proverbial bullet and did my first digi lo! It is a thank you for the articles (even though the bumholio's are ceasing CS mag)

It is a Jen Caputo sketch, and Anne Langpap papers

A huge thanks girls- I really mean it! I know this is a bit of a 'cheat' but it meant I got to grips with the basic functions of digi scrapping!

So- today! You guessed it- another digi layout. Kate gave me a couple of fab pointers today (like increasing the memory allocation for PS CS) which made things way easier, but it is still very slow going- I think a laptop is necessary for this with a stonking huge memory and fancy pants processor. (do you get the idea I really have no idea what I am talking about!?)

So this layout was done from scratch, no sketch to help! *yeeks*

Kit from shabby princess which I found on my poot- I am very good at downloading kits- least now I know how to use them! Very simple- like most of my paper layouts, but other than the pic- I really like it! Just trying to use random 'me' pics from crimbo- that way I don't offend anyone by doing a cacky lo with them in it! mwahaha

I even added drop shadows, although I think I need to learn how to faff them up next, I reckon the shadow line is a bit harsh (admittedly that is more noticable viewing in a larger size)

Brilliant! And so glad Katie and I have finally got you to loose your digi virginity. Its a steep learning curve but well worth it in the end!!
