Digi-ri-doo xxx


or digi-ri-don't (as we say when Rolph gets his instrument out lol xxx).

But I am so starting to love the old digi, more and more and I think it could become quite addictive, if only cos you can do the creating, but with no mess - other than the biscuit crumbs over the keyboard which I really do need for sustainance cos it takes me sooo flippin long and I'm in here for hours lolxx

But I said I'd keep showing you the fruits of my labour, and hopefully they will get better as I go on.

So this is my second attempt ....

Now, I know that the pic isn't quite in the frame.

And I know that I seem to have st---ret-ch---ed the scalloped bits - one is called an overlay and one isn't and I don't know what the difference is (any clues would be ever so welcome). I should be re-sizing I think but I can't seem to do it right - thicko trout pout freaky fool that I am - dohhh!!!

And I know that the quote probably doesn't completely go with the pic (even though she does take my breath away at times just by looking at her sweet little face, which you can't really see here).

BUT ..... I do kinda like it.

I really do like that gorgeous blue gauzey paper, and I LOVE that photo of the little minx. And there is something about the whole thing that appeals to me - not sure what but possibly cos I do love the pic so much.

It may be because I had an idea in my head when I started it and it sort of ended up how I thought it would, which gave me a sense of achievement.

But now I find that I cannot wait to do the next one.



I'd love any tips and hints anyone might have cos I really do want to learn this. And I hope that the next one I do will be better again - practise makes perfect as they say.

The paper and elements are all courtesy of the awesomely talented Summer Driggs. Thank you Summer - I just love your stuff xxxx

Have a great night peeps. I'm off now to find another book to read cos I finished 'Fern' last night and I have to have a read before I go to sleep!!!

i'm gonna try to help a little here..an overlay goes over the image--it's transparent with bits and pretties that show on top of the image

you can resize, assuming you are using photoshop or photoshop elements by doing ctrl + T and then holding down the shift key as you adjust the size of the box--holding down shift makes it so you don't get things all squishy, like your scalloop

that's your lesson for today *mwah*

Oh wow Dawn you have done a brill job on this, i think it all works great, setting the picture on the side of the page works great. Think you have picked the digi scrappying very quickly. I use a dedicated programme not smart enough to use my photo editing programmes, so hats off to you, i like the fact of no mess to!! lol. sue.xx

Love to Doodle! said...

Fabulous Dawny....there are no end to your talents it seems...very striking and gorgous design...love the photo of Kyla....xx (when you've selected an image to re-size, make sure you grab the corner handle - this will ensure it is re-sized in proportion....grabbing a side handle just stretches the image...)

Gorgeous Dawn. I love digi too and did a whole scrapbook for my grandaughter from birth to 5 with digi and am doing one for my grandson now. I use it a lot for cards too. This is an adorable layout.
