It’s another MDS Monday Challenge
The current scrap layout challenge at MDS Monday had me really thinking outside the box. There is a sketch but they want you to use a map of your state. Well, apparently, there is a download for that for the states in the USA but I couldn’t find one for Australia. So I googled a map of Queensland, did a little manipulating and finally had my map.
The only trouble was I had a little “white” space around my stamp, so to hide that I added my map to the page and used the colour picker to add the same “white” to my page as the background colour. I added my photo boxes but the background seemed a little plain, so I opened the stamps – splatter option in my Design Centre to add some to my background. The colours seemed a little dark so I changed the opacity to lighten them up a little. I picked most of the colours from the colours in my photos, particularly the colours in the sky. The chevron pattern was created using my photo corner punch. I rotated it, added several, aligned them and spaced them evenly before grouping them together. That made it easy to add the colour and drop shadows. Once they were grouped I could change the size or copy and paste them.
These photos were taken at sunset on Tower Hill in Charter’s Towers. It’s a wonderful town full of the most amazing buildings and a fabulous history.
I hope my page has inspired you to play a little more with My Digital Studio.
Bye for now,
