Thank you Belle. You are such a gracious, generous lady! I try to remember that this is a thread for beginners, and that I probably don't have much to offer other group members, who have really been my teachers, so to have such a talented artist like yourself find something of value in my work means the world.

Debbie, you have no idea how much time I have spent pouring over your LOs wondering how you did this or that! I am obviously completely ignorant of digi, but your work is so lovely that at some point I am going to have to break down and see what it's all about!

I just started putting things togather on a lo and kept leaning as I went.

here is another on I did, I took a pic of Mollie and frosted it to 100% so it would fade right into the paper and then I faded the monents to blend in also, there is a flim over the pic to make it look old, the purple flower I changed the color to match the BG pp.





I love you By Luci-scraper

I like the way you washed out the larger photo of her - this whole thing is beautiful. This past May I was given a cool scanner by Cannon that I can do negatives and slides with. Lo and behold recently I discovered it came bundled with a cool photo program ArcSoft 5.5. I've never had a program like it and am having fun altering photogrphs, so I guess I am sticking a toe into digital scrap world!! It is amazing what one can do to a photo with these programs!!

Hi Debbie! Yes it was nice to get away, even though the first two days were all business! Yeck!! Spent about an average of 8 hrs. each day in the truck traveling and waiting for DH to get his work done. He was delivering, training customer and installing a part for there mills.

Did some sightseeing on the island yesterday, and got a few good pics. The tourist sections were completely deserted of course, but enjoyed seeing my old stomping grounds again. Brought back memories of summers spent there when we were kids.

Glad to see the newcomers and the other los you girls have added.

Will have to get busy and start backtracking!

Hi Stacey! Welcome to our rockin' group! Thanks so much for those great tips you did on that sweet lo. What a sweet moment between you and your baby. Really like all your techniques and especially am intriqued with the way you did your stitching. Has anyone ever had a problem with the paper ripping when you stitch on it?

Hey my Girl!! Soo glad to see you here! And please don't be modest! HEHE! I continue to be awestruck on all these great ideas that I would never think of at all. The idea of cutting out a portion of your pp that you otherwise couldn't help hiding is so neat. I often look at paper when I buy it, and wonder where I could place my pic so that the best part of the pp is not hidden.


the idea of using the edges of cut out for framing is good to. Jackie I read the list of techniques you used when you origanally did this page, and their endless! You are so talented girl!

Woo Hoo! Another wonderful tip! Thanks Belle! I don't have much of a collection of stamps, find the nicer ones quite expensive, but you can usually pic up some nice rubons. Thanks for the idea, and the word out about the Honey Bee Scissors, probably will purchase myself some for the more intricate details of cut outs.

Am really getting anxious though to get out my things and start trying out this ideas. Picked up a few really nice pps and other great finds at super cheap prices. Rite Buy had all their huge selection of sb things 50 % off, Michaels had pp on for 39 cents. Needless to say I was in my realm!

Debbie, I am so amazed with your digi LOs. I have been wanting to try this and just recently updated the version of PhotoShop Elements I have, so I think I have a good tool to try it. Pardon my lack of knowledge here, but I noticed you mentioned "digi kits." Is this digital paper and embellishments? Or do you scan paper and other elements to include in your LOs? The techniques are amazing--frosting is WOW!

Thanks Debbie. I just may take you up on that at some point. As to your question, I used a CB doodle genie template for the Happy Haunting LO, and I stamped with Autum Leaves swirls and then cut them out for the Natural Beauty LO.

Ok ladies, I can't wait for your answers about the challenge. sooo here goes ! Im sure that most of you are familiar with what I think is a new thing and just coming out in the Scrap ezines. If it's not new to you, that's ok.

I just love the los that are totally done in black and white, and Im talking everthing! If you would like to show us what you come up with doing a page like this, it would be great! The pic may be black and white, or sepia. No other colors .

Are you up to this?

hi! thanks for the warm welcome! sure, i'd be more than happy to share!!! did you check out my blog? i post each layout on it and describe what i did, but i can go over it again here, if no one minds

the ppr is Basic Grey , and it was rather pale so i inked it (tea dye, t. holtz) and used gold chalk around the white butterflies to make them stand out more. i outlined the bottom butterfly in my Signo white pen, and also created some lines in the middle which werent there originally on the paper. then cut about a zillion little tiles of gold ppr and smeared a thick layer of GLOO all over the wings, and placed each tile there with tweezers (yeah, thought i was crazy at the time too!) and added some glass beads and some sequins to the mix.
the middle of the wings have a chipboard flourish that i cut down the middle so i could have matching for each wing - then outlined them with the signo, and the blue-grey color you see inside the wings is chalking, i mixed blue with gold, and some green and yellow, then i took my Brilliance inks (in Platinum Planet) and used my finger to gently blend the chalks together, that ink pad also adds a lot of shimmer.
i cut little wings from a DCWV stack, as well as the gold border on the left side. I mosaic'ed the little wings just like the large butterfly. there is a Hambly transparency over the photo, and i did some hand doodles around it, with some rub ons, chipboard embellies and flowers. i used a metallic marker to color most of the flowers that gold color, and added polka dots with my white pen. i also added Basic Grey (euro edge) rub ons around the large butterflies' wings, and some gold printed vellum ppr to the edges that i tore and kind of just slapped on using GLOO to adhere it. the journaling is printed on clear ink jet film with a downloaded font.
i think that covers it, LOL! if anyone has anymore questions, please feel free to ask here, or pm, or whatever! thanks

Hey Rachel, I'm so excited you are on here..I would love to hear about some of the techniques for your "precious butterfly" layout! The butterfly on there was amazing!



hi! thanks for the warm welcome! sure, i'd be more than happy to share!!! did you check out my blog? i post each layout on it and describe what i did, but i can go over it again here, if no one minds

the ppr is Basic Grey , and it was rather pale so i inked it (tea dye, t. holtz) and used gold chalk around the white butterflies to make them stand out more. i outlined the bottom butterfly in my Signo white pen, and also created some lines in the middle which werent there originally on the paper. then cut about a zillion little tiles of gold ppr and smeared a thick layer of GLOO all over the wings, and placed each tile there with tweezers (yeah, thought i was crazy at the time too!) and added some glass beads and some sequins to the mix.
the middle of the wings have a chipboard flourish that i cut down the middle so i could have matching for each wing - then outlined them with the signo, and the blue-grey color you see inside the wings is chalking, i mixed blue with gold, and some green and yellow, then i took my Brilliance inks (in Platinum Planet) and used my finger to gently blend the chalks together, that ink pad also adds a lot of shimmer.
i cut little wings from a DCWV stack, as well as the gold border on the left side. I mosaic'ed the little wings just like the large butterfly. there is a Hambly transparency over the photo, and i did some hand doodles around it, with some rub ons, chipboard embellies and flowers. i used a metallic marker to color most of the flowers that gold color, and added polka dots with my white pen. i also added Basic Grey (euro edge) rub ons around the large butterflies' wings, and some gold printed vellum ppr to the edges that i tore and kind of just slapped on using GLOO to adhere it. the journaling is printed on clear ink jet film with a downloaded font.
i think that covers it, LOL! if anyone has anymore questions, please feel free to ask here, or pm, or whatever! thanks

I will try to do this. You want just black & white used in the lo?
I only joined 2 challenges this month so I may have a chance to do this. Especially with no deadline! I realized last month that I joined too many... it was very hard to keep up with the comments!!! However I did that to myself!

LOL! Oh I know that feeling to well! Signed up for too many challenges myself, and was up to 2 am in the morning sometimes determined to meet my commitments. Learned my lesson!

As for my little challenge to you ladies, yes everything is to be in black and white only exception is the pic. May be sepia or black and white. Have fun!
