LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Jan Hicks

I love Facebook and spend some time on there each day, posting my status and seeing how my friends are doing. Most of my friends are other Scrap Girls, as well as a growing list of old friends from high school whom I haven't seen in years. There is also a smattering of my family on Facebook. It's a great way to keep in touch with them as well and to watch their families grow.

Life Muses by Ro: Making Hearts Sing

There is something amazing about small blessings. I often forget how wonderful they are.

Life Muses by Ro: Add Texture to Your Photos

Want to add textures to your photos to create an artistic look? I'm going to show you how you can use digital scrapbooking backgrounds from your stash to do it!

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Riff-Raff and Vagabonds

Note from Ro: Want a laugh? Then you need to read this article I found on the Scrap Girls Digital Adventures Blog by Ursula Schneider. What a terrible-funny thing to have happened!

Life Muses by Ro: Light By A Sidewalk

"How will I get there?" Meg asked, her worry dripping from her brow. "I'll get lost."

I pointed. "See the signs? Follow them. If you follow them, you'll be able to get anywhere you need to go. If you get lost, keep wandering around until you see a sign. It's pretty here and the walk will be pleasant."

Customer Muse: Give Love A Chance

In my little world, I find that the more we look at each other as individuals, with individual thoughts and ideas that we can share without imposing ourselves upon each other, makes for a more peaceful lifestyle. Sometimes, it is very difficult to appreciate those differences when they are so different from our own.

div

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 Scraptabulous, kidsrgr8, and scrappinchar!

Digital scrapbook layout by Jennifer Labre

"Elephant Fun" by Jennifer Labre
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

Sometimes the easiest way to tie a page together is to duplicate elements and place them on opposite sides of the page. I did that here with both the leaves and the green textured paper. For the leaves, I duplicated them four times and bunched them together behind the photos for an extra pop of color. For the paper, I selected a strip from the original and placed it at the top and bottom of the page to add some balance and pull your eye in to the center of the page.

Digital Stickers: African Elephants Basic: Black Paper Mini Zoo Collection Mini

Software used: Adobe Photoshop CS3

Name of challenge: Free Scrap

Other Ingredients:

  • Font - NeoPrint
  • Font - Oliveoil
