Getting Artsy with Digital Scrapbooking: Overlays

Welcome to this edition of the artsy challenge. I thought it would be fun to challenge you to use some overlays on your pages. They can be fun to use on the whole page, or scale them back and put them behind your photo, layer them, erase parts, the list goes on and on. Katie was kind enough to put together a little freebie pack, so you can either use those or any overlays in your stash.

Of course I have a few examples for you. The first one is by Joanne. She did a beautiful job layering several overlays with stunning results
Here you can see what she used on her page
Katie Pertiet Spill Frame Layers No. 03, Watery Scribbles Brushes and Stamps No. 03, Messed Up Photo Blocks Brushes and Stamps No. 04, Taped Together Overlays No. 03
(recolored), Arctic Whites Paper Pack No. 04, Watery Typecast Blends Brushes and Stamps No. 02
I love the overall watery effect on the page

Next we have a page by Kathie, the genius at work 🙂
I really think the page speaks for itself, she used those overlays with perfection!
Here is what she used:
Katie Pertiet: Spill Frame Layers No. 03, Monochromatics Overlays No. 04,
Urban Naturalist Overlays No. 02, Botanical Colors Cerulean Meadow Solids Paper Pack
Messed Up Overlays No. 03, Page Blends No. 12, Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Watery Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Cutting Files: Chunky Cuts Grids No. 01, Fine Line Twists Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Artsy Spots Brushes, Stamps and Layers No. 01, In Stitches: Circles No. 01, Bold Scripts Enjoy the Ride Brushes and Stamps

Finally, here is my page, still using my kids’ selfies 🙂
I cheated a little bit in that I used one of Katie’s fabulous templates that already had some cool overlays on it. I added a bit to it, changed a few things around and voila, the page is done… here is what I used
K. Pertiet: Determined LT, Artistry DeAzul,  Spring Walk Solids
Botanical colors cerulean meadow
Studio DD: Readymade botanical clusters No.1

So, give it a try and put some overlays on your page, I can’t wait to see what you come up with 🙂 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 April Challenges Thread 
so that we can find it. And as always, have fun with it, that’s the main thing!         Anke
