Patriotic Challenge!

As we head into the most patriotic time of the year in the U.S., our last challenge of June is the Patriotic Challenge! I hope you’ll join us and play along, and show us what it means to be a patriot, wherever you live. Katie provided a wonderful freebie for this challenge, which is not required for participation, but I think you’ll want to use it!

Joining me in the challenge were two of our team members, Brenda (bbe) and Debi (beehive50). They both created fabulous pages in their own styles, and the results are awesome! Check out these great pages!

Brenda incorporated her own flair using the Studio Double D Layer Works 682 template, amazing Americana Woods paper and Page Fades No. 2, adding an artsy touch that I really admire. Love the photo treatment on this page too.

Debi made great use of the freebie Katie provided and created a wonderful graphic-style page showcasing a great line of photos accented with the festive star banner. This page has a great story about team and national spirit! In addition to a couple of the elements from the freebies’ pack, Debi’s page used Just Linens Paper Pack 74, Classic Side Lift Storyboard Photo Frames No. 1, All Around 4×6 Sports Brushes and Stamps No. 1, Flair Minis No. 1, and Flair Mini Sports.

Every time I looked at this photo of my twin granddaughters I thought, oh those girls are as American as apple pie! But I wasn’t sure how to convey that, until this challenge. This was a lot of fun to create with Katie’s Build a Blend Page No. 4 overlay and Studio Double D Readymade Frame Clusters Americana and Readymade Edgers Americana, turning a simple photo and feeling into something more dynamic. In addition, my page used Antibes wood paperArctic Whites PapersFabulous Fourth Brushes and StampsEdge Overlays No 9 and Artsy Paint Type Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 2.

Saturday Scraplift: Borders and More

For the longest time, I’ve been a fan of the page-within-a-page look. The clever design principle appeals to my eye, and it’s almost like getting two pages in one. The striking striped border on Sharon’s (justbnsharon) page caught my attention immediately, and then I was drawn further into her delightful creation by the edge treatments on the “inner page.” Liz and I had fun lifting Sharon’s page for our own photos.

Sharon’s page:

 FLY24

Liz (lizziet5) put a fun picture of her daughter and granddaughter front and center on her page and chose an awesome color scheme to complement it. I love her choice of accents clustered around her photo and the brushwork that she used to ground her design. The dotted twist does a great job leading the viewer’s eye through her page.

I worked with some photos my daughter-in-law took of my grandchildren at their uncle’s house in New York a couple of summers ago. They dictated my color scheme, and I tried a technique of Liz J’s – layering a couple of Kayleigh’s readymade borders. Definitely putting that one in my toolbox!

There are so many ideas you could take from Sharon’s great page – I’ll be interested to see what sparks your imagination. Be sure to post your page in Saturday Scraplift Challenge Gallery and in the June Challenge Participation Sign-in thread in the forum. Happy scrapping!

Getting Artsy With Digital Scrapbooking: Blending Large Titles

Good morning, ready for another challenge? We are blending large titles into our background today. Katie has a nice freebie you can use or if you prefer, use any alpha or title you already have in your stash.
Here are a few examples:
Bailey (Starlite9711) did such a nice job blending everything together on this page and I love how the little part of the title becomes part of the mask underneath. Just a little bit to change things up 🙂
Sunshine70
Here is what she used for this cute page
Watercolor Ombre Paper Pack, Spill Frame Layers No. 4, Ledger Paper Pieces Seashore No. 1, Build a blend Page No.2,  Build A blend Page No.4 – coming soon
South Beach Kit

Next up it Kathie (kathie02) with my favorite, the beach 🙂
catching-a-wave-700
I just adore how cleverly she made the title become part of the photo, beautifully done!!!! Here is what she used on her page
Katie Pertiet:South Beach Scrapbook Kit, Color Muse: Keen Solids Paper Pack,
Spill Frame Layers No. 02, Watery Spots Brushes and Stamps No. 13
Then we have Jana who actually used the same background I did (or the other way around) Katie did most of the work for us 🙂 A nice way to blend the title is also to just lower the opacity, this came out perfect!!

Full-of-Joy-copy
Her supply list:
KPertiet: ARToptions Traveler ***coming soon***, Build a Blend Page No. 4 ***coming soon***, Clipped Stacks No. 12 ***coming soon***, Edge Overlays No. 9 ***coming soon***,Mixed Stamped Titles Brushes and Stamps No. 04-Challenge Freebie, perfect for blending!, Taped Together Edges Overlays No. 05, Loosely Labeled Adjectives Value Pack.
Vintage Blendable Layers No. 03, My Dad Brushes and Stamps

And finally, here is my page. As you can see it’s very similar to Jana’s page (you know, brilliant minds think alike 🙂 )

2016-6-23-Love
I also colored my title and reduced the opacity. In this case Katie had created the title giving each letter a different opacity to begin with, so it really gives it a more blended look. I love her creative mind 🙂
Here is what I used and it wasn’t much at all
K. Pertiet
artoptions traveler No.1 – coming soon, clipped stacks No.12 – coming soon,
wordy titles

Make sure to use all Designer Digitals products in order to be eligible to win, post your pages in the Artsy Challenge gallery and copy a link into the June Challenges Thread
