Trying digital

I decided that I would make the scrapbook of our house remodeling digital. All the pictures are still on the computer and I have too many other ones to do anyway. I know that I really should finish one of my other projects before I start soemthing else:)
So here is my attempt at two digital pages. Be kind:D

Just saw the typo in this one...off to fix it.

Does it look really corny to have Dh in the flower shape like that? I wanted him in a shape and just carried over the buttons, but does it look funny?

YEs they are. And I didn't notice it until you asked about the flower shape but after you said it I noticed it and it bugs me so much. I don't know why, but other than that I love the layout.

You are going great! Are these your first two digital pages? I'm impressed. The colors are nice and I love the design. The flower shape doesn't bother me at all. Lol I wish I was a little more creative with picture shapes sometimes. I think digital allows you to budge a bit more than paper.

Yup, these are my first. I have done some digital cards and other things though so it isnt' really my first time 'designing' something.

I think that flower bothers me because it is around Dh and the shape makes it too feminine?

I kinda agree about the flower with your dh in it ... what if you tried taking the shape with the paper still, but had the picture still rectangle inside it, with one of the flower buttons to anchor it? That way you still get the shape, but the photo itself isn't in the shape, if that makes any sense.

OR, looking at it again, maybe have the photo by itself or on a matte like the 3 above it, move the flower shape over and put your journalling on it? Play around with it to keep the shape ... just ideas Smile

I like the design of the layouts tho! Smile The only thing I would add are drop shadows to make it seem more 3-D and more like 'paper' scrapbooking, if that's the effect you want. LOVE that kit you used!

very nice! I agree with Trina that you could do the flower shape for your journaling and make the picture of DH rectangular/square. it doesn't really bother me, but if it bothers you, that is the solution I would go for.

Thank you, THank you, Thank you!

Here are the new ones. I totally didn't even think about the drop shadow (which is funny cause I use it on my cards:rolleyes:) Definetely makes it look better!

I am definetely happier with the journaling in the flower and Dh square. Thanks Trina!

Looks awesome! Smile Glad I could help Smile And the drop shadows make so much difference, so funny that a little shading does that!

I was actually thinking I love the flower. I think it adds to the page.

The colors you chose are great. I love all the great journaling so that we could understand what we were looking at.

Your updated pages look great - the drop shadows really add to it! I really like the font you used too.
