Thanks to Melissa -- she's the one who really got me started. Mom and I went to see her last week and she took us step by step through layouts and effects. This is truly amazing...it looks so difficult, but really it is easy once you get the hang of it!
Here are my first two layouts:
Materials I used for "Me & My Papa" were: Paper & Embellishments -- Reflections Kit by Jen Reed; Stitches -- by Manu70; Overlay -- Pton Designs; Font -- Batik Regular (Photoshop)
Materials used for "My Sunset": PS7; Brushes (Obsidian Dawn); Flower (Jennilyn Designs from PolkaDotPotato); Overlays (Pton Designs & Adeyeo); Papers (Raspberry Road - Java Joe & Forget Me Not)
I can't wait to experiment more...but there is a major dilemma...there is soooo much digital material out there! Methinks I'm in big trouble...LOL!
