Circles are a great way to bring the focus right back to your photos when creating your scrapbook layout. When I started this particular layout I sat here with a blank stare at the screen not knowing where to start. Oh no! Not because an idea wasn't coming- the ideas were coming at a rate my brain couldn't focus. Uh-huh! S-C-A-R-Y! I've been saving ideas from all over the place for the past couple of weeks because I was the one to come up with this big bad theme of circles! I've pinned and pinned, saved and saved and dog eared and dog eared. So when this happens WHERE DO YOU BEGIN—-> Open MDS!
It's digital scrapbooking week with Stampin' Up! and I could write a book on the 1001 reasons why I LOVE My Digital Studio so much. One of my favorites is all the Digital Downloads that you can sift through and go crazy over. But you know what????? You can do amazing things with just the GREAT program. Did you know that My Digital Studio has a great photo effects section? Yep! Fantastic.
I started this layout by creating a photo box over the entire layout and then decreased the opacity to the 20's and changed the photo to black and white. . I added another photo box of the same photo, changed it to black and white but kept the opacity at 100%. When adding the text "Eleven" on the right side of the layout, I started the opacity at 10% and then for each one I added below it I added 10% more until it was 100%.
