I decided to play with some digital brushes this afternoon and created a layout for the Scrapbooking Competition challenge blog. The blog owner Ingeborg designed the sketch to use. I looked through my old photos and picked this one of Kyaa and her cousin Matthew who was visiting us part way through a round the world trip with his family at the time. They look pretty cute don't they?!
I created four different sized circles and layered them on top of each other. I used a clipping mask to attach the photo to the smaller circle, then picked colours from the photo to fill the remaining circles. Then I started playing with brushes! Altogether I used brushes from butterfly_by_ShadyMedusa-stock, Porcelain brushes by Miko, KPertiet_FloralEdger (not sure where I picked that one up from?) and Circle Flourish Brush from Little Dreamer Designs. The fonts I used were One Fell Swoop (one of my favourite script fonts!) and Papyrus (aside - while looking for the link for the Papyrus font I came across several links about the overuse of the papyrus font. Lucky I didn't know about that before I finished my layout!!).
Till next time, happy days!
