Playing with Photoshop Elements

Now that I know how to work with Photoshop Elements I love to do some digi scrapping. This afternoon I had some time left to play with the digi kit by Mindy Terasawa that I purchased earlier this week. I used this sketch on the Prima blog designed by the talented Janine Langer. A great sketch, and I will definitely use it again on a paper layout.



I also created a digi layout with the Capri kit by Lynn Grieveson. I used one of my favorite pictures of our summer holiday in France last year.



I am still a beginner, and the digi layouts are not that complicated, but I really enjoy practising the basic elements in PSE 6. There is one technique that I really miss when I scrap digitally....inking the edges of my papers. I just LOVE to use my favorite VersaColor ink cube on every piece of paper. I would love to do the same on a digital layout, but I really have no idea whether that is possible. Is there an experienced PSE user who knows how to add a distressed edge to the digital papers?

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! I will be at Dolls & Decorations all day tomorrow. It is the quarterly Dolls Day.

Your digi LOs look gorgeous Ingrid, not bad for a beginner. You can use overlays to give a distressed look for your papers. xox

Ik vind dat je knap digitaal werk hebt geleverd. Wat een prachtige foto trouwens bij de tweede layout.
De Dollsdag was geslaagd, leuk je weer gezien te hebben, en ik was gelukkig ruim op tijd voor m'n les.

Groeten, Joke
