Use a digi!!

My next Lasting Memories challenge layout is overdue... oops.  This week the challenge is to use a digi on your layout.  Thanks to the talent and generosity of so many online artists, we are absolutely spoiled for choice when it comes to free digital products.

It's been a long time since I did any 100% digital layouts, but I still love using digital elements on my traditional pages.   I didn't use a digital 'picture' but I did use some digital embellishments.

 This is my layout:

This is a closeup of the journal card that I used:

I downloaded the journal card FREE from Miss Tiina's: 

I also created my title using digital alphabets, which I added to my photograph before printing:

The alphabet set is called When Summer Ends, created by Maya de Groot.  The original yellow didn't match my photograph, so I changed the colour using hue and saturation settings in Photoshop Elements.

I created my layout using a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.  The sketch was perfect for using lots of paper offcuts, so despite the focus on digital elements I still managed to reach deep into my stash and use some more of my hoarded patterned paper (all Echo Park), flowers (all Prima) and buttons.
