Last week at Digi Crop nite I gave the girls a challenge to use the Custom Background feature in their project. Here is my example –
I also gave them a sketch to work off of – a sketch often helps give you a place to start. My page follows the sketch. And I used photos from a day trip we took to Santa Cruz – we weren’t there very long and the pictures are mostly from when we walked down the pier.
Using a custom background and selecting a photo is one of the fun things that you can do with My Digital Studio that doesn’t really work with traditional scrapbooking. In case you haven’t tried it before here are a few tips to get you started.
- Open the Design Center on the right side and go to Background Papers.
- Click on the CUSTOM option.
- It will open up a screen for you to browse your computer and find the photo you want to use. Add it.
- Now create the rest of your page on top of it.
Give it a try and see what you can create.
