19th December

19

Today it’s been raining… AGAIN!

I decided to try and get a head start on a project I’m doing in 2012.  The project is from “Log Your Memory” and it’s a time capsule project with weekly challenges and prompts.

I’ve decided to do the project using digital scrapbooking.  I really want to learn how to do something new and since I’ve already got Photoshop it makes sense.

The hardest part of every project for me is decided how to put the project together.  There is nobody local who can print 12 x 12 digital layouts so I’ve decided to print the layouts 8 x 8 size.

After a few trial and errors I finally came up with a layout that I really liked.  It’s going to be a steep learning curve but I’m really looking forward to it!

I think I’m going to really like doing this project.  I’ve had a bit of a look through the layout ideas already and I can see some of them being done twice… digitally for this project and traditionally as a full layout.

It’s really different doing things digitally… and there’s heaps to learn… but for me nothing beats cutting out and sticking down the traditional way :)

Happy scrapping xx

  2. Hi Shell, I have been stalking your blog and am enjoying your December project and like the sound of the time capsule project. Try your local Harvey Norman for 12x16 prints (I add a couple of 6x4's along the side of the layout on the larger canvas size) they have half price enlargement days here for VIP members but still the price is expensive. I print in 8x8 mostly using 12pt or 14pt font size for journalling. Have fun with digi scrapping. Raewyn
