Photo editing, layouts & a sketch.

Well it's a bit a large post today, so bear with For the last 2 weeks I've been taking Jessica Sprague's free Frame-ups and Special effects class at her website, and had really, really love it. I can't believe the things she's been able to teach us in such a small space of time, it really is amazing. Here are a couple of the photo's I've edited, the first one we had to add a vintage tint to, then do some hand colouring, add a frame and some cute stars, then the second photo, which is my fav. so far, we learnt how to add textures to photos, very cool.

I loved this photo so much I just had to scrap it, so I chose to use it on a layout I did for my last class at the Country Papercraft school of design. For this last class I have shown then how to use recycled items on their layouts, so on this, my sample layout I used tags from clothes, Milk bottle plastic run through the Cuttlebug, bubble wrap stamping and some biscuit packet cradboard, die-cut for letters, it was quite fun seeing what you can recycle, and the girls seem to really embrace it, I'm looking forward to seeing more of their layouts.

All of the next layouts, and the sketch have just gone out yesterday in CPC's July mid newsletter. I provided the sketch, and the designers were to use it in a layout. I also used it to do a card with the Kaiser stuff I had lying on my desk after I had finished the layout, which I must do more often :)
The layout below used the July Designer kit from Country Papercraft, a very boyish kit with all sorts of boy goodness to get your creative juices flowing, I think there are just a few kits left, so if you are interested in purchasing one hop on over to the shop.

And that's about it for me today, hope you have a great day. See you soon with more scrapping goodies. x
