Digital Two For Tuesday 5

Well here we go another week of Digital Two For Tuesday. Thank you to all who have participated so far. I hope this week more people will take the challenge and create something amazing with these two images. All the rules for the challenges are in the side bar. If you do not plan to participate but are enjoying the images please let me know. I love encouragement. This week's guest hostess is Annabelle. She is a Mississippi girl currently living in Illinois with my wonderful husband & 4 kitties (Elvis, Rufus, Louis & Harry). She has been doing some sort of craft project ever since she can remember. In her words "I think I've probably tried almost everything! But paper has always been my first love. When I was little, nothing was more exciting than a new pad of paper & a pen, pencils or crayons. Playing with digital images in PaintShop is also something I love to do. Combining digital images & paper is just so wonderful...there's no limit to what can be created! Add my beloved Cricut & SCAL software to the mix and I am in heaven! Now if only I had more time to spend in my studio! (Oh, and PhotoShop...I'd love to have PhotoShop.)"

Annabelle's directions: Using PaintShop Pro, the white was removed from the digital stamps and then resized. Those images were pasted into the "R.A. Geoffroy" image. The image was then printed and colored with watercolor pencils...then distressed by tearing, folding & chalking it with medium brown. The letters & photo corners were painted with white acrylic paint, sanded & chalked. The papers were adhered to the notebook & then the edges were sanded. The image, letters & photo corners were adhered on top.
