some digi art journaling to start the new year

Finishing up my last journal with a focus on gratitude, I created this page for my new journal.

grateful; digital collage

I turned 70 on January 1st. A lot of "deep thoughts" going on about that. It's taken me some time to even say the word!

2015 Photo Book

Here is a slide show of pages for my version of project life. I've had it printed by Shutterfly. Can't wait 'til it arrives!


This represents my immersion into digital memory keeping and digi art. Some of the pages are more "traditional scrapbook" in nature, while others are more artsy. I've thoroughly enjoyed this journey, learn new things daily, which will keep me interested for a long time to come.

focus on gratitude

Here is a flip through of my journal for November and December using the papers described here. The focus will be on gratitude and thankfulness. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out. Colorful pages that will be fun to write on and add photos and things to, collage, maybe even a little doodling! While I don't love spiral binding, I do prefer working on pages that lay flat.

Creating papers

If you've been following along here, you know that I've become totally immersed into playing in photoshop. I decided to make my own "scrapbook papers" and use them for a new journal. Here are some examples, with a collage at the bottom. 

Next post will be photos of the journal I've created. Hope you have a wonderfully creative week!

no autumn here!

It's still HOT in Southern California. I went to Central Park yesterday in search of autumn. No fall colors there. So I created my own.

Don't drink the water. Digital photo manipulation.

Adding textures and overlays on top of your photo produces interesting results ...


This was simply using blending modes to blend the texture over the photo. Very little mucking around ... yielded interesting results. Photographs should never be allowed as "evidence" in court :-).
