What I like…besides books: Digital scrapbooking

A couple of day ago I talked about a digital scrapbooking kit “Read and Relax” for the scrapbookers among us. My first Weekly Geeks post ever was about it as well. Even so my passion for it has somewhat decreased I still like to create digital art and collages, especially with poetry or quotes.

One book related page I created was for a contest that took place in 2008, The Amazing Digiscrapping Race. The requirement simply was to create an altered art page and this is what I came up with.



If you would like to have a look as to how to get from a blank white page to the end product, you can do so here. And if you would like to see more of my crafty side you can go to my (badly neglected) blog Rikki’s Teleidoscope. I really should resurrect that one again. It’s not that I’m not creating anything, I’m just not posting it.

    • It is not hard at all. All you need is a image editing program and a few supplies which are available either for free or rather inexpensive (definitely cheaper than paper etc.).

      I’ll check out your challenge. I like the name already.
