"Be One with Nature" digital layout, by Megan Klauer.
Happy National Nature Photography Day everyone! I was so excited to hear that there is actually National Nature Photography Day! Who knew? It was the perfect excuse to get out and explore. I encourage everyone to grab their camera, take a walk and capture the beauty of nature today or any day!
I thought I'd share a few shots I got while doing just that.
This last photo was the one I chose to focus on for today's project.
Until I get started; there's many times I'm unclear on what direction I want to go with a design for my layouts. Sometimes you just need to jump on in and see where the inspiration takes you.
My first vision was to use the photo as the full back ground and highlight a quote using the alphabet set & chipboard words.
Honestly, I loved the way this looked but I was feeling like many layers were needed so I started fresh with a few of the digital papers in the IF She Blooms collection.
I then swapped out a few colors to better blend & combine with my photo. I also added the crosses from the digital chipboards.
I then combined my original design thought of the photo with the quote and began the fun process of layering!
Borders, embellishments, bits & pieces, changing the opacity, using the eraser tool to create a torn paper look, stitching with the ( . ) period text to create a sewn look, & of course journaling. It all went into my final design.
How many of you end up creating something completely different from your original thought? More often than not, it's how we come about our best work.
