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 Collection – LAU-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!
