Scrappy Monday: Project 52 Restart

I thought it would be a good idea to restart the Project 52 project. I had started a couple weeks into the year in 2011, and with National Scrapbooking Month coming up in April, I'd better get a'move on! So how'd I do last year? 2011 Project 52 totals: Week 51, pages 47. Let's see if I can better that this year.

I have discovered the digital scrapbooking challenges on Splitcoaststampers. Now, they are old challenges, but they are still applicable, right? And an added benefit... perfect project to work on when I'm away from home and only have my limping-but-working-for-the-moment computer.

This page uses challenge DGC02, Color Isolation. This was a painful process for me, learning how to use layers my photo-editing software. I struggled with getting my edited layer to have a transparent background. Well, half a day later, success.

MDS Elements: Fresh Vintage, Torn Edges, Textured; Color Palette: Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Whisper White.

I used challenge DGC03, Journaling, for this next page. Here, the focus is on journaling in another "voice". After I put the photos together, my daughter dictated the text to me.

MDS Elements: Wintergreen DSP; Color Palette: Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Pool Party, Sage Shadow, Early Espresso, Whisper White; Font: Pea Diana.

And this page uses challenge DGC05, Photo to Pencil Sketch. Another challenge, I mean, learning opportunity for my photo editing capabilities.

MDS Elements: Downtown Grunge Kit; Color Palette: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla; Font: CK Alis Handwriting.

My laptop monitor has basically bit the dust, so I'll call it quits for now. 2012 Project 52 totals: Week 6, pages 4.

Don't forget, you can now try My Digital Studio with a 30-day trial copy. Download here using item #129600.
