Dive Into Digital : Lauderdale Collection

Today I’m bringing you work from two of our BG digital design team members, Kathleen Summers and Mary Rogers.  I challenged them both to create a layout with three specific products from our digital Lauderdale CollectionLAU-D929 patterned paper, LAU-D926 Textures and LAU-D927 Flourishes.  They could use any other product they chose but had to include these three items.

Kathleen chose to use the flower/leaf texture from LAU-D926 Textures.  She colored it, “stickerized” it by using the stroke function in Photoshop Elements, and shadowed it to make it more of an element.  I love how she utilized the LAU-D929 patterned paper as not only a background paper of her layout but also used it by clipping it to the flower brush.  Kathleen notes, “The verigated blue/green colors in the brush were created because of the pattern of the paper!”  Kathleen then tucked the “play time” element from LAU-D927 Flourishes along the left edge of her photo cluster after coloring it green.

The bright photos of the Lauderdale kit coordinate perfectly with Mary’s photos from a recent family event.  She says, “I created a grid for my photos so I could use a lot on the page without it appearing cluttered.   The texture brush was used to add dimension around the photos, and I used a border around the flourish title, applying a shadow to give it depth.”

I hope Mary and Kathleen have inspired you to take a second look at your digital supplies and use them in a different way.  Perhaps you’ve been on the fence about giving digital a try?  In that case, I hope that you’re eager to dive into your first project!

  1. May I simply just say what a relief to uncover someone that really knows what they are
    talking about on the web. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More and more people should read this and understand this side
    of the story. I was surprised you are not more popular because you certainly possess the gift.

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.

    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

  3. certainly like your web-site but you have
    to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the
    truth on the other hand I will surely come back again.

  4. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say
    that I’ve really enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
    In any case I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!
