Loving Kindness Every Morning

I've got a couple of layouts to share with my favorite peeps (that means YOU, if you are reading this!  :)

As most of you know, I'm taking a break from designing scrapbook kits so I can learn the Photoshop CS5 program that Michael gifted to me back in January.  I had been thinking of hanging up my designing hat off and on for awhile, but just couldn't do it!  I LOVE "creating" clipart to use in digital scrapbooking.  But, I just didn't have time to learn while designing. 

Several months ago, one of the designers at Digitals put up a CT (creative team) call.  For those of you who don't know what that is, the members of a CT get to play with a designer's digital kits for free in exchange for posting layouts to various online galleries as a way of advertising the kits for the designer.

Anyway, this designer, Cilenia Curtis, has a totally different style of designing than I have (or had, I should say).  Her style is "artsy" as they call it.  Well, I have ALWAYS loved art, even though creating it digitally scared me!  But it intrigued me so that I decided the only way to learn more about it was to join her CT.  Once I did that and began to work with that style I was hooked!  I didn't even like my own traditional style of digital creations anymore!

So, I began to try my hand at creating some "artsy" and incorporating it into my kits.  I didn't get rich quick, LOL, but I did sell more of that style than of my traditional style.  Cilenia, who is also my designing mentor, told me if I was really serious about designing, I needed to get away from Photoshop Elements and learn the "big boy," Photoshop CS (Creative Suite).  So, I made the HARD decision of hanging up the designing hat (I probably should say "selling" hat) while I take the time to LEARN the program.

But, in the meantime, I am still CTing for Cilenia and the other great, artsy designers at her new shop, Scrap Art Studio.

I said all of that to say that there is a guest designer at Scrap Art Studio through November, ValC Designs, and I got to play with one of her kits, Perfect or Not.  And here are those pages.  Hope you enjoy them!  You should be able to click on them to get a bigger picture if you want to read the journaling on the page.

If you want to visit my layout gallery at Scrap Art Studio, you can go HERE.  I think I have posted all of these on Facebook before, but not all of them here.

You're so talented! I'm excited for you to start a new chapter in your designing. I'm happy to send you pictures so that you can turn them into masterpieces. :-) Praise God for our great lives that we have time to have such fun with our hobbies!
