My First Ever Digi!!

And my second share for today!  :)

I only got PS for the very first time a few weeks ago and really haven't played much with it at all, aside from a couple of little photo editing tricks.   When my awesomely talented buddies over at The Colour Room, Lydell Quinn and Emma Stafrace, offered all the DT girls a free digital kit.... well, what more incentive did I need??  These chickies are so talented and they make this digi stuff look so easy, when it sooo isn't!!  What a way to celebrate Palette # 75!!  Wow.... great achievement girls!

I won't tell you how long it took me to produce this... way too long!...  but I really enjoyed playing with it.  I know it looks a little 'amateurish' and I have plenty to learn still, but I think it passes as reasonable for a first attempt  :)

{rest}

Here's a little look at the kit:


Isn't is just amazing?!!  There is also a little giveaway on The Colour Room home page too if you want to have a little lookie.  There is a .jpeg and a .png file for you to copy for free!!

As much as I enjoyed playing with something new though, I think glue/paper/scissors will always be my addiction of choice.  :)   ... so of course I did a hybrid too.  I actually did this one first, before going back for a play with the digi version.

{take flight}

As you can tell from the inspo pic that was teamed with the palette this week, I was really taken with the opulence of the gold, so this really influenced my hybrid page.


So much so, that I added some tangled gold metalic thread....

 ... and some gold embossing powder...

 ... and a spritz of Walnut Gold Glimmermist on the Pink Paislee Mistables pp.  LOVE. THIS. PAPER!! :)


So, that's it for this week.  If you have never done a Colour Room palette before (and even if you have), then this week is definitely the one to do!!

I'm thinkin' it might be create night tonight.... i can feel some inspiration coming on!  lol

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Your digi looks awesome but yep, I am a paper and scissors girl through and through. Just need to see that texture too.
Both are just gorgeous.
