Challenge #15: Using a digital layout as a base
Posted 14 April 2009 - 08:56 AM
Here is printed my photos and digital frame directly onto cardstock, along with my journaling. I added a title using stickers and embellished with die cuts. I have a wide-format printer but you could also do this using a standard size printer and matting your printed layout on patterned paper or cardstock. Here's what I did.
Photoshop or Photoshop Elements instructions:
1. Create a new canvas to whatever size you can print (I did 12x12, standard printers can handle up to 8.5x11)
2. Add your digital frame and photos (see Challenge #2 for more tips on that)
3. Add your journaling, leaving space for your title. I also left space to use a dimensional sticker for the start of my journaling. You can also add other digital embellishments, stitching, papers etc.
4. Print your digital layout. My printer can't do borderless printing for 12x12 so the edges of my cardstock didn't have anything printed on them. I trimmed off those parts and matted the entire layout on patterned paper.
5. Add your paper embellishments - I used thickers and die cuts.
I hope this inspires you -- I'm going to have a participation prize this week, so don't forget to link me up if you do try out this technique!
