Some more Layouts

Blog, Digital Art

I’ve been creating more layouts to add to my 60th year folder. It’s growing and I will have quite a collection to choose from.

This first one was inspired by the fantastic bobbins Caz sent me from America. I have been using Anna Aspnes supplies a lot, I find her style suits me, I love the water colour effect I can get using her masks and brushes. All her supplies come with shadows and I like the natural effect it creates.

I would advise starting off with one kit and use it until you learn what you like. Check out her website HERE.

Brushes can be altered by clipping and blending and by lowering the opacity. Then it’s just a matter of playing with the elements until you are happy.

Here are a few tips if you want to start digital scrapping. I used Anna Aspnes’ palette ‘Story’ see it HERE

Spring Tradition

Blog

hello-spring

 

Recently my blogging has eased, I find that I am communicating more and more on Facebook in private groups. Also some new apps are piquing my interest Steller and Storehouse in particular. I don’t know if I will give up blogging completely but check me out on Steller HERE and Storehouse HERE.

Anyway back to today. Do you have traditions ? Most people do. We have a tradition, every Easter Monday we walk up to our local park and watch the morris dancers herald in Spring.

We have been doing this for about the last 30 years, sometimes the weather is cold, windy and wet, but this year it was perfect. They process through the park playing whistle, drum and melodeon….

 

musicians

 

The tunes are catchy I find I’m humming them for the rest of the day…

You have to be fit…

The ladies get to do it to.

And when they finish in the park they tour some of the local villages dancing in the pub car park or village square.
