Last year I finally made the decision to convert my scrapbooking projects to full digital books. Before that I used My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up to create 12x12 pages which I printed and put into the big scrapbooks (confession, I bought a ton of these books because they fit my bookcase! I had to fill them!). Anyway, I finally decided that I would keep it simple and create digital books and print a book rather than print the pages to put into a book. More space-saving and less time-consuming.
By making this decision I have been able to somewhat keep up with 2013. Of course, I still have some work to do. Each kid has their own book and then we have a family book. My goal is to get them all through 2013 by the end of March.
Anyway, here is one of the pages I designed for my son!
Using my son's words, I "stalk" Heather Summers (well, I follow her blog) and decided to finally play along with her MDS challenge - free form tool.
I pretty much stuck with the rules, used mainly one kit (Seriously Teen) and the free form tool. I did add the ink splatter (have to have ink splatter). For the free form tool, I converted a wavy line to an angled line and matched the angles of the photo. For the washi tape I used photo boxes which I reshaped to strips and added DSP; then I ripped the top and bottom edges.
I never create a page with so much white space. I always use designer paper or color as a background. I really like the look with so much white space. Great look for a teen! Being I am new to this style, it will take me a while to perfect the look. What I like is that I can keep it simple or keep adding elements until I am satisfied with the look. For this page I ran out of elements to add.
So now that I publicly announced my goal, I will have to post some pages and try to play along with more challenges from Heather!
Have a great night!
