Texture - Gotta Have it!

April 20, 2016

Over on the Get It Scrapped blog this week we're talking about mixing texture on the scrapbook page.  As a digital scrapbooker this is something I feel compelled to do to keep my pages looking realistic.

The greatest compliment I can receive from someone looking at one of my pages is when they ask me whether it is paper or digital.  This means I've set out to do the job that intended to do and that is to bring the depth and dimension that I have always loved about paper scrapbooking and merged it with the ease that I have come to enjoy from digital scrapbooking.

My page "Out From Behind the Lens" combines a variety of textures including fibers, shine and soft, sheer layers all with realistic shadows that add serious depth to the page.

The story of this page is about stepping in front of the camera and seeing myself and my family from a new perspective.

And here's what I shared about my approach to texture over in the article at Get It Scrapped"

"I often aim to include a good mix of textures on my scrapbook pages as it lends depth to my digital designs. However, I like to try and select textures that echo my page’s sentiment while adding a polished look. Here, I’ve used a variety of charming and soft textures that compliment the tender feeling created by my photo and journaling.   Then I've thrown in a few sparkles to finish things off."

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
