Redeemer


The challenge over on 365 Card Blog today was to use your computer to create a sentiment or document. I've been learning all year in PhotoShop Elements how to manipulate 'things' like text and layers. This 6x6 scrapbook page was created for a year long challenge I am a part of: His Holy Names 09. The date of April 26 was when this particular name was issued; just another example of my running behind! My page is a combination of stamping, digital, and scrapping. I selected two scriptures that spoke to me regarding the name: Redeemer. In PSE, I was able match the color to my papers and pick the font style. I used Basic Grey papers as well as Making Memories journaling page. The Redeemer is stamped using the Rubber Stamp Madness font from Ma Vinci Reliquary. I meticulously cut the letters and pasted them in 'real' life to my page. The fancy cross is an Anna Griffin image and the believe coin is from Tim Hotlz idea-ology line. I used Cornish Heritage Farms dragonfly hinge and a tiny bit of bling~~~the page lifts up for hidden journaling. The key is a K&Co product and I used a bit of vintage French silk ribbon to attach. The date is part of a Crafty Secrets calendar set.

I do enjoy mixing the two arts, digital and stamping...I will always have to be hands on, inky hands on at that! So I'd love to hear what you think about the digital revolution and of course, my Redeemer page! If you are interested, I have my other HHN Challenge pages here. Thanks for stopping by

Super page Susan! love how you mingled the digi and real - I've been taking a couple of classes on PSE too (how Freudian!) but haven't gotten to the point of using it yet!! good for you - I love the label shapes and that wonderful font. The addition of the coin and key in the black touch it off nicely.

I've been thinking of doing digi scrapbooking since I'm so far behind on it!

I'm with you Susan on the getting behind on my scripture journal that I have going as well. Love how you generated this scripture. I'm sure your journal is becoming one of your favorite things you have created for yourself as well. Mine has for me.

Hi Susan, I hope you're well, long time no speak unfortunately! Your creation is beautiful! I love your scripture and your design and colour scheme are wonderful. I think that that digital and classic stamping and inking work beautifully together, I do this all the time and it's wonderful to combine them. Chris :)

This is gorgeous, I love the font you chose and the scripture. The hardware pieces and your lettering really balance it out nicely!! I think you're going to do great with the photoshop enhancements, it totally works here!!
