Digital Scrapbooking Kits underway

Although I only occasionally scrapbook, I do do Digital Scrapbooks.  These are usually private pages but I still really enjoy doing them.  Recently they’ve started looking more and more like collages (especially Zetti-style collages) – so I thought I’d look into producing my own Digital Scrapbook Kits for people like me.

Currently I’m designing my first one and it’s taking FOREVER – honestly – so much work goes into these things.  And being the perfectionist that I am I’m sure they’ll take even longer for me.

However, while I’m doing that, I sketched out some Kokeshi dolls yesterday – then coloured them this morning using Photoshop.  I really do love Vectors but sometimes I like something a wee bit rougher (and I struggle with vectors sometimes).

So here they are for sale on Etsy 🙂  Offered as .png and .jpeg files.  This is the first set – more to come 🙂  I’m going to go back to the V&A later today to get some more ideas for colours and patterns.

vintage frenzy – again

I have SO much scanning in to do at the moment – in the past couple of weeks I’ve bought a beautiful compendium of children’s stories (illustrations by Arthur Rackham), a copy of Gulliver’s Travels from the late 1800s, a load of really creepy knitting patterns and … erm … I’m sure there was something else.

In the meantime I’ve been starting up some challenge groups on Flickr.

The first is Fidget’s Freaky Friday Digital Collage Challenges:

Using this collage sheet by me:

There’s also a Fidget’s Funky Collage Sheet Challenge – where we all create collage sheets based on a theme – this week’s is Beauty – and my collage sheet is here:

You can use them as you like 🙂

If you’re on Flickr – come and join in the fun 🙂  I really enjoy creating digital collage sheets – just knowing that people may use elements from them for their own art – that just makes me very happy.

These two were made for the group by some very AWESOME artists – I’m totally blown away by what they’ve created:

I just LOVE this – she creates such gorgeous Zetti collages – this just blows me away.

I love how she’s also included some images that I uploaded before from a book called Cobb’s Anatomy.  They all go so well together.

This is my sorry attempt:

“The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others”

“The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others”

The idea was there – just the execution wasn’t 😦

Anyhoo – off to make some more collage sheets …
