Thursday Blog-Inspired Challenge 6/26

26 June 2014 - 08:05 AM

Good morning!  Today's challenge is inspired by the recent blog post:

How to Use Photoshop Actions

 

Actions are a great tool available for Photoshop & Elements users.  They can enhance photos, add realistic shadows, add fun effects to your layout, or speed up tasks (like resizing layouts or rounding corners).  

To see all of the actions available at Scrap Girls, click HERE to go directly to the Actions boutique category.

 

Some of my favorite actions are:

SNU_SSActions_ColorSwatch6301_MKTG300.jpScrapSimple Tools - Actions: Color Swatch 6301

BMU_SSActions_MagicalPhotos_PSE_MKTG_300ScrapSimple Tools - Actions: Magical Photos PSE

BMU_PACK-Action-PSE_MegaLift_MKTG_300.jpAction Pack: Mega Lift PSE (Photoshop Elements)

 

 

This challenge has two parts:

1) Share your favorite action(s) with us in the thread below

2) Use an action on your layout

 

When you finish your layout, post it to the SG Blog Challenge Layouts Gallery.


Thursday Blog-Inspired Challenge 6/19

19 June 2014 - 08:48 AM

Good morning!

 

The Scrap Girls Blog has a series where they interview the designers and creative team about their layout design process.  If you've ever wanted to peek inside the minds of our creative team and learn how they think through their stunning layouts, these are the blog posts to read!!    Last week, the layout design process segment featured Amy Flanagan - http://scrapgirls.co...s-amy-flanagan/

Here are some of the techniques/tools she mentioned in her design process:

  • Extending a photo to fill a frame
  • Use of White Space
  • Art Journaling Effect
  • Visual Triangles / Chevrons to draw the eye to the subject
  • Brush Work
  • Blending Modes
  • Use of a Stroke on Word Art / Title  

As I read the post, I was inspired to try integrating some of her techniques and ideas on a layout of my own.   I want to challenge you to do the same.

    Choose at least two of these techniques and incorporate them on your layout.  

 

When you finish your layout, post it to the SG Blog Challenge Layouts Gallery.
