A Quick Digital Scrapbook Layout - Y Wal

Hi Everybody!
Thank You For Popping Over To Have A Look At Our Blog
As A Design Team We Are Always Happy To Have Visitors To Our Dragons Lair Designs Inspiration Blog, And Especially Happy When We Are Left Comments

Today I've got a quick digital scrapbook layout to show you.
It's made using one of my photos and an assortment of items from the new Artistic Expressions collection that launched in the Dragons Lair Designs store on the 1st.
"Y Wal" is Welsh for "The Wall".  It's a section of the wal in our front passage that we hung a piece of wall paper from the top to the bottom and allowed my niece and nephews to stick their creations to, whether made here or brought home from school for us to keep.

Here's a closer look for you.

These are what I used:

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:
Items from the "Artistic Expressions" collection available - here - in the store.
My Craft Studio Software; IrfanView Software
I simply took a copy of the photo, together with an assortment of items from the Artistic Expressions collection, into My Craft Studio.  I chose a square item and made it fill the width of my working area so that my finished layout would be square, and worked on that area building up my layout.  After saving it as a .jpg I took it into IrfanView to crop, re-size, and add my digital watermark (I've got it set up in that software for when I adjust and watermark photos I've taken, so easier to work than re-set one up in My Craft Studio).

And that's it.  One Quick Layout.  Although I will print it out as my mother likes to keep a collection of printouts of the layouts I've made.

And that is it from me for today.
Please keep coming back regularly to look at new posts as, over the next few weeks, you'll find various "Inspiration by ..." posts appear on this "Dragons Lair Designs Inspiraiton Blog", as well as other posts by different Guest Design Team members.  I'll be back with more posts over the coming months as well, so keep an eye out for those.
