Digital Metallic Art

Hello, well I hope to be in class tomorrow, my computer was playing silly games today and I had to re-install Windows XP - I hope when I turn it on again tomorrow that the little problems have disappeared!
Here is my homework for class 4 from a few weeks ago, I finally got around to doing it - better late than never! I still have not mastered photo corners or other goodies for holding down photos yet, so I have not done them - I need to see them in real life to be able to do them (I'm odd that way)So instead I played with other elements and goodies that could be useful for scrapping.

Tags and Things

Again something as simple as making tags - I start to wonder and worry - well how big are they? How big should they be? Then I think again, ah revelation! Well really they can be practically any size! So I quit worrying and start doing! Think of the tags you get on gifts or on your clothing you buy, or tiny little tags on small items, tickets, raffle tickets, index cards and so on, I realise any size will do! So here is me again trying to be realistic and creative at the same time.

Wonderful And New Things I'm Learning To Do

Hi again and Happy New Year!
Here is my latest effort in digital scrapping.

First I made a template for a scrap page layout and then I used the template as a guide to make this scrap page, using all my own little creations that I have been learning to make over the past few weeks. This was made at 3600 x 3600 pixels and 300 pixels per inch - and then I then reduced a copy of my work down to 72 pixels per inch and 500 x 500 pixels for posting here.

It seems pretty basic stuff really, but when you change from playing with graphics using little tiny 500 x 500 pixel at 72 pixels per inch that are absolutely fine for web pages and e-mails, to 12" x 12" 300dpi which is about the best you can do for professional printing quality, it is a huge adjustment! This has also made me realise that to continue making scraps on layouts of 12"x12" or 8" x 8" then I will need to seriously consider getting a stronger / faster computer!
