“The patterned papers in the Uncharted Waters collection were so beautiful, I had a really hard time deciding which to use. I picked the chalkboard paper as my background and had fun adding some brushes in white. I selected a few patterned papers, that matched my photo, to layer on top of each other and anchored those paper pieces with a Journal Card on the bottom and my horizontal photo on top. The “choose happiness” brushed word art on the bottom right of the chalkboard paper was a perfect spot to cluster a few pieces and add my date. ”

“Pretty simple layout and my favorite is the bottom part where I scattered little bits and pieces of elements. I also added some paint splats and rubber-like stars. I love the colors in this kit.”

“One of the reasons I was drawn to digital scrapbooking was having the ability to blend photos onto paper. On this layout, I took a black and white photo and blended it with a white cardstock and printed it on my home printer as an 8″x8″. I then used the beautiful white space to print my title on vellum. I printed out some alphas and elements from Uncharted Waters and stitched them into place.”

“This was the perfect kit for beach photos I took in Texas. The colors and paper strips are just beautiful. For the photo I created a cluster of brushes to clip my photo too. There are actually 3 layers of photos. Layer one was a Hard light layer over the brushes that I duplicated and lowered the opacity. Layer 3 was a soft light layer.

“Today’s layout is all about circles! I cut my photo mat into a circle and chose circular embellishments including wood veneer discs, sequins and the ampersand die cut and scribbled circle stamp from Uncharted Waters. I also modified a couple things in Photoshop for this layout. The scallop patterned paper was re-sized before I cut it down for a photo mat. Lastly, I modified the awesome wreath embellishment to use as a label for my photo!”

“For this page I made the photo into a sticker by extracting my photo first from the background (using the pen tool and my image was magnified to 300%). Next I created an outline of the image (command button and clicking on the icon in the layers menu on a Mac). This creates dancing lines around the image. Then I created another new layer under the photo image and expanded the outline by 15 pixels (select menu, modify, expand) and filled it in with white using the paint bucket and added a shadow to the white image.
For the anchor I used a card from Glitz Design Uncharted Waters Element Pack 1. Because my background paper is “chalkboard” I wanted the anchor to look like it was drawn with chalk. To do this I upped the contrast and using the magic wand highlighted the white and deleted it, leaving just the black words. Then I inverted the image so that the words were white (the Invert tool is found in the Adjustment menu). When finished, it looks like the words were written on a chalkboard! I needed some color in the page and added elements and word art from the Uncharted Waters Full Collection.”

“For this weeks feature, I used Uncharted Waters. The kit has so many backgrounds to choose from but I went with the light blue one. It makes all the other colors I used pop.
I really liked the word art elements and instead of having one huge title I have a few tidbits to help tell my story.”
