Today's scrapbook page was one of those unexpected happy surprises! I hope you like it as much as I do.
All I knew when I started this page was that I wanted to use this picture. I tried it as a full size 12 x 12 image but couldn't decide what to place or embellish on top of it. Then I tried putting it on the bottom half of the page. It still didn't "grab" me. I ended up with it on the right but had a hard time choosing a background colour. Then (this was my aha! moment) I remembered about the "color picker" feature in Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio. It allows you to colour-match components to something else on the page. This was the key to my success! The next thing I knew I had reshaped several square punch shapes into a grid pattern, added a "torn edge" stamp to soften the transition, found a decorative edge stamp for the bottom and trolled through my fonts for something with a similar "feel".
Voila! A happy surprise (in a matter of 30 minutes)!
Happy MDS'ing everyone!!
