I'm Cold

Ok, so one must have a really boring life if shooting a bunch of pics of your hubby drying off your daughter is the highlight of the day. Oh well. Isn't it those daily memories we cherish so much the ones we want to keep forever? Haha, I sound like my preacher.

 

Kit is by Thao Cosgrove, "Passion". My LO doesn't do the kit justice because the kit is gorgeous colors in rich purple, deep pinks, and aquas. Check it out.

 

Software: Microsoft Digital Image

 

Technique: The outline around the small photos is done as follows:

1. Add soft shadow around the photo.

2. Go to Edges, Art Stroke, then choose the brush second row, first on the left (but all of them look neat).

3. Choose your color. I chose black.

4. Then for the next photo, after adding the shadow, rotate it 90 degrees before adding the art stroke. This is so the same pattern won't be on each photo making it look "digital". The third photo rotate at 180 degrees, etc.

 

This quickie technique will only work for the smaller photos. If you won't to do larger ones, then you need to take the extra step and make the outline a separate layer. This is so you can then cut out the outline part that goes off the photo and make it one shade lighter. If you notice in real scrapbooking, when you've "painted" over a 3D object, the objects most sticking out are a tad darker than the layer below it.

those are the memories that are the best!!! if every moment was your children stopping what they were doing, to set up a pose, and smile.... you'd never be able to remember how they really were!

 

Your layout looks fabulous. I love how you used the photos!!

This is wonderful...it's TOTALLY these seemingly insignifigent moments that kids will LOVE remembering when they grow up. I love the sentiment here...a daddylooking after his little girl. Beautiful!

Great layout, and I love the technique that you used on the photos. I think it's wonderful that you scrapped such an "ordinary" event. It is those events that we least remember, but that make our lives so special. :)

This really is quite an amazing layout!! So many good things about it but one of the things I like the most is the way the colour photos have been placed on the ribbon down the side. Awesome job.

May seem mundane now, but I bet she'll see it quite differently in 20-30 year's time!

 

and the LO is GREAT!

This is a really neat way to handle a number of photos in a sequence. I really like them on the ribbons against the B&W background. I like the blended photo in the background, too. It really gives a nice focus to the piece.
