Life Muses by Ro and Other Writings
A Designer’s Life: Melanie Johnson

One of the things I love most about Scrap Girls is the incredible diversity of our members. Browse the threads on the message board and you’ll find people from all corners of the globe. Although I haven’t lived in a lot of different international locales, I enjoy reading where people are from because I’ve lived in a lot of different places myself. The cool thing is that as I’ve met people through Scrap Girls, I’ve discovered that many of my friends now live where I once did.

Life Muses by Ro: featuring Pat Barnes

Time sitting at my computer has had to be severely rationed since I broke my arm. I need to spend quite of bit of time each day in my recliner or on the couch with ice packs, and I find that I become achy if I’m at the computer for too long of a stretch. My arm that has the break aches, my opposite shoulder that supports the weight of the sling tires, and even my chronic upper back pain has been flaring. Yesterday, as I was finishing up a layout for a challenge I had to post, I noticed that I was looking UP at my computer screen. No wonder my upper back is yelling at me!

Life Muses by Ro: featuring Angela Nussbaum

Sitting on the couch today, I was trying to get my six-year-old to talk to me about school. She takes a lot of prompting but, out of the blue, she says this:

“Mommie, I wanna grow up to be a Scrap Girl.”

Life Muses by Ro: featuring Angela Blanchard

I went for a walk in the woods between rain showers last weekend and took my camera along with me. There were not any wild flowers open yet (we’re still having snow showers here) and none of the trees had started to leaf out, so it seemed kind of bleak. The terrain was pretty steep and without any trails it was hard going, but this was to my advantage because it forced me to slow down.

Life Muses by Ro: featuring Carla Shute

Late one Friday night, I received a phone call from my stepmother. She was on her way to the emergency room. My father was having what turned out to be a reaction to his latest back surgery. They were supposed to be going away for the weekend to welcome my stepbrother home from Iraq, but my father couldn’t travel in his condition. So, the next morning, I packed up the girls and myself to spend the weekend taking care of him. I forgot many things, but the most important thing was my camera.

Customer Muse: Packing for Vacation

Don’t get me wrong... I like a good vacation, I really do. I like getting away with or without the kids. (Okay, maybe I like them without more.) I like a change of scenery and trying something new. But, if your household is anything like mine, then you know all about the preparation that has to take place beforehand: planning, getting everything together and packing.

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!

“Confidence” by Debbie Layden
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I wanted to make the background look like an architect’s blueprints, so I used Mandy Stewards’ ScrapSimple Transparency Overlays: Angles on a sheet of light blue cardstock. I also didn’t want it to look as though I just stuck the transparency side-by-side. The first thing I did was duplicate my transparency. Then, I used the “Rotate 180 Degrees” feature in Photoshop CS3 to turn my duplicated transparency upside down. Next, I lined it up at the right bottom side of my two page layout so that the lines matched my original transparency. I then used Ctrl+X to cut away the portion that was on top half of the layout. For my last piece, I duplicated a section of the original transparency that was covered up by images.

By doing this, I gave my layout a continuous look rather than a choppy one. I merged the three layers that comprised my transparency together.  Finally, I changed the Blend Mode to “Overlay” to achieve the look I wanted - an architect’s blueprint.

ScrapSimple Transparency Overlays: Angles Brush Set: Rugged Decor Fully Alive Collection Biggie
Textured Cardstock Mega Pack 1 ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Forties Buttons Biggie ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Paua Shell Super Biggie 4104

Tutorials and Articles
ScrapSimple Club Concepts Tutorial: Shipping Label Postcards

This tutorial will show you how to create a simple, yet creative photo postcard using ScrapSimple Layer Your Own Brush Set: 4x6 Shipping Label, which is available in the current ScrapSimple Club.

Best of the Message Board

Question: I can’t figure out what I want to use to record the ideas for layouts I want to do. I usually think of them while I’m in the car or in a store, away from my computer. I wanted to see what all of you guys do. Do you use your cell phone’s note application, a PDA, or an actual journal that fits in your purse? I’m leaning towards finding a journal, because by the time I put it on my phone I’ve forgotten my idea. I have one of those cell phones that has 3 letters to each number. I can do email fine, it just takes forever and a day.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Peeling Paint

I love the look of creating dimension with my digital scrapbooking layouts. I’m always looking for ways to create the look of realistic texture within the embellishments and papers in my digital layouts. Today, I’m going to show you how to create the look of peeled paint.

Way Cool Stuff Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Dynamic Brushes

Dynamic brushes are a fun way to add interesting effects to your layout. They provide a lot of movement because the brush automatically changes direction when you sweep across your workspace. Some dynamic brushes also have a multi-colored effect, further adding visual interest. Allow me to show you how much fun, interesting and versatile these dynamic brushes can be.

Digital Scrapbook Tutorial: Using ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Burned

One of the wonderful things about digital scrapbooking is being able to achieve the look of paper scrapping techniques without the bulk or effort. A great example in the Scrap Girls boutique is the ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Burned. This unique product makes it possible for you to take a digital photo and put it on a piece of transparency film with burned edges that have been stitched, buttoned or torn. It is really fun and easy, so let’s get started.
