Life Muses by Ro and Other Writings
A Designer’s Life: Thao Cosgrove

Just over three years ago, I resigned from my corporate job as an assistant communications director at a local university to independently pursue graphic design from home. That move has brought a bounty of blessings as well as surprising challenges....

Life Muses by Ro: Night Conversation

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

It’s 12:45 a.m. and I’m wondering when I’ll begin to feel sleepy....

Life Muses by Ro: Time to Feed the Dog

A 25 item list for feeding the dog....

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Really Fortunate

Note from Ro: I found this post by Dinny on the Scrap Girls blog. Thanks, Dinny, for the reminder that small things are blessings.

Life Muses by Ro: BU

I looked at the blog and heard a familiar voice of discontent whisper in my ear that the blog was proof that my life isn’t good enough. “You should be like that,” the voice said. “You’re boring. You’re messy. You’re wrong.”

Customer Muse: Listen To Your Foot

As I was driving the other day, I noticed that my foot ached. Not the kind of ache like you have been on your feet all day, but the certain ache that predicts weather changes after a bone has been broken.

 

Muse: To be absorbed in one's thoughts; engage in meditation. Not intended to solve the world's problems, another person's problems, or to cover topics completely. One does not have to agree with musings to enjoy them, just as one does not have to be the same as someone else to appreciate who they are.

Note from Ro: Would you like to earn a $20 Gift Certificate? Send your own muse to [email protected]. If it is selected for publication in the Scrap Girls newsletter, you'll get to have fun shopping!

Ro is now spotlighting various Scrap Girls members, showing layouts, and running contests in her blog. If you end up being spotlighted in it, you'll get a little gift from her. Subscribe to her blog so you don't miss what is going on!

Ro has recently spotlighted Soozlou, mtorres_usa, and teabaglady!

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

To create the background paper, I placed Lori's Really Different Grunge-Dark Paper Mini - brown crackle paper - on my layout. Then, on a new layer, I brushed the circles brush from Brush Set: Grunged Geometrics and clipped the yellow paper from Really Different Grunge-Dark Paper Mini to it and set the Blend Mode to “Hard Light.” To brighten the circles up a bit, I duplicated the brush and yellow paper layers, set the Blend Mode to “Lighten,” and the Opacity to 30%.
