Goin' Digital

I finally picked up a copy of Creating Keepsakes, "Computer Tricks for Scrapbooking," and sat down Saturday morning with laptop and coffee in hand exploring Photoshop Elements. My next scrapbooking project was the Potter's Hands First Gathering. The first skill I worked on was resizing a photo and adding a frame. My favorite new tool was the curved journaling line, giving it a whimiscal touch and the circle text. These are all things that I really can't do by hand. It's the best of both worlds ... I can print out a partially completed page and then add papers, fibers, embellishments etc. for a great finished product. I have been using my computer as an additional scrapbooking tool for a couple of years ... using WordArt etc. but this will definitely make some changes in my scrapbooking style. I have a lot to learn but I'm taking it one step at a time.
