Again this month I was so excited and happy to create with Ali’s July Digital Kit. The color palette is one of my fave and the summer/travel themed is ideal for this time of the year. As well, this layout is a combination of digital elements, past story kits and other Ali kits, such as a past DD kit. I do love how I edited the picture in PSE, I find it adds a fun quirky design to my project.
In PSE I selected the crop tool and changed the options to shape, from there the possibilities are endless. I really liked the fact of switching things up, typically we will see a quote or journaling in a speech bubble, I opted for the picture to which I added a digital brush from the July kit. I love how Ali’s kits inspire me to try something different, to approach a project with a different and perhaps more relaxed perspective. As Ali says, it’s about the stories and it’s doesn’t have to be perfect.
For the background paper, I resized a journaling card from the July kit to 8×11. To do this I opened a blank canvas in PSE and dragged the journaling card on top, from there I stretched the edges to fit the background. Afterwards the journaling was added with PSE. Love how this turned out!
I added accents and embellishments to my layout using past story kits, like the fun kit but also past kits, such as the washi from the DD mini kit. The “awesome” tag is also an add on from the Fun Story kit.
I hope you are inspired to documenting those everyday stories.
