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).

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
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.
