Bubble Fun With the KiDS

Marissa says, KAYA!

Thank you, Diane, for introducing Danielle Young's kit. I just couldn't make up my mind on which material to use. I made a few LOs using the kit. I had fun combining, re-coloring, and layering several materials. I asked Lee for pictures of her kids having fun. What beautiful pictures she shared. Thanks, Lee.

A smile starts on the lips, a grin spreads to the eyes, a chuckle comes from the belly, but a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, overflows, and bubbles all around. Just like these BUBBLES.

Materials Used:
Danielle Young's Spring Time Feeling Kit [thanks much, D.]
Tall Paul and Times New Roman fonts
Adobe Photoshop
Pictures from the Armchair Scrapper
Bubbles that are not originally from the pictures were made by me.

Techniques Used:
Photoshop digital techniques:
a) cutting - cut the corners of two of the background papers and used one as the folded corner of the other; cut a leaf of the flower to use in layering
b) layering - green circle background layered with leaves and flowers; green ribbon layered with flowers; fun and funky buttons layered with flowers
b) opacity - changed the opacity of the flowers to blend with the ribbon, paper, and buttons
c) re-coloring - changed the color of the ribbons, the flowers
d) shadows used on everything to give depth and dimension
e) extracting - extracted the KiDS from one of the pictures
f) embossing - embossed the buttons, title, the extracted pictures, the bubbles I made

3-2-1, Funky Fun

Can't resist posting another one. What a fun kit!

About Me:
I've been digi-scrapping since 2004. I am still discovering lots of techniques and I don't think I've even scratched the surface yet. I would like to learn to make my own kits some day. But right now, lots of pictures are waiting to be made into traditional and/or digital layouts.

Ang ganda Marissa! I love the photo of the kids sitting on the frame! I've got to try that!

Thanks ladies! The bubble thing is just a round marquee on a new layer, fill up with white, then opaque it as much as possible, drop shadow and emboss. It's a colorless opaque brad - hehe.
