Virtual Crop: Challenge 4

Happy Sunday!  Whether you’ve been with us all day – or are just joining in now, we are so glad that you are able to join us for the Spring 2017 Virtual Crop!

The sun is shining here in Sydney, and we are supposed to have a fabulous day here! The air is warm and the flowers are budding.  What a great day to open the window, take in the fresh air, and scrap the afternoon away.

Got your afternoon coffee or tea? I can’t scrap without my cuppa.   What about you? What is your go-to scrapping drink?

Challenge 4:  Create a layout following the sketch below.  Take a photo of your completed project and post it to the Facebook Event Page by 6pm AET today (Sunday the 17th) to qualify for the prize for this challenge.

2017 Pages - Page 034
(Digital) Beth Thomander- Advisor;  Nova Scotia, Canada

To create this layout, you will need:

  • Croptoberfest Project Recipe Digital Kit  AU

Font: Harrlems

Tips for creating this digital layout:

  • The rich palette of colours in the Croptoberfest kit is perfect for nature photos.
  • I have added some dimension to the gold heart by using a 3D filter and softened the edge so the heart now has a puffy look.
  • The title bar has a 3D edge by using the same filter as for the heart, but the edge was not softened on this one.  The edge was left sharp to show angles.
  • In digital scrapbooking resizing is a huge advantage.  I have resized many of the flowers and leaves to fit where I wanted to add them to the page.
  • The vine was resized, repeated and the colour was changed to a darker colour to help it stand out against the darker papers.
