A New Challenge – Getting Transparent

SoulTeamRemember last time I told you I have a big announcement – well here 'tis. I'm so freakin' excited.


I get to be a big deal over at the new Soul Scrappers community. Erika Martin created a worldwide community to help scrapbookers learn and share more about their craft but also to help us all put more of ourselves on our projects. And, check it out, she asked me to be part of her design team, "Soul Team." I get to write tutorials, run digital scrapbooking challenges, get my little projects featured – oh yes, my head is bigger than the house right now.


This week I wrote my very first tutorial and today I'm running my first challenge – Cool Beans!  Editing the opacity (or transparency) of pictures in digital scrapbooking pages is one of my favorite techniques, so, you know, that's what we're doin' – gettin digi wit it and getting transparent.

I haven't had a chance to share this one with you yet because it was"out for publication' on Erika's Journaling 101 online course (which, by the way, is incredible!). It's become one of my favorite pages because it commemorates the special relationship my Caitlin had with her Grandma.


And here's a page I made this week for the challenge with pictures from our Summer trip to the Tetons in Wyoming.

IWasFeaturedWinners of my challenge get to put this cool badge on their blog. Erika actually made this from hand (it's not a digitally composed graphic). Yes, I'm so stoked about this!


Here's my challenge: Tuesday Digital Challenge DC2 – Getting Transparent. It includes links to Photoshop tutorials, my tutorial for users of Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Scrapbook (Making Opaque Pictures in MDS), and a link to the challenge photo gallery, DC2 – Getting Transparent.

Come join us, but soon, the deadline for the challenge is Monday, February 8. Don't tell anyone, but I want one of you guys to win. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net
