my first digi scrapping attempt!!!

i saw on the aussie pub calls blog the other day a competition for digiscrapping and thought i would give it a go cos of the awesome prize!!!

here is my entry with more info about the credits and etc: click here

i wanted to do a layout made completely from non-digiscrap-kit-stuff. i found a great site called Urban Dirty and ive used one of their textures and turned it into a page background with alot of cropping and editing to make it more urban and grungy. this is the one i used:


and then i used some cool fonts that i found for free at 1001freefonts.com and some urban brushes ive had for awhile.

i tell ya what - talk about using alot of layers!!!!! i ended up having 20-something layers with this file. but it was so much fun. im definitely gonna stick to paper-scrapping. but this was a nice way to waste a couple of hours on the computer :) it was some nice 'down time' for me.

wish me luck in the comp!!!! the entries close midnight 31st july Tokyo time.

it looks a bit gammin small, so click on it to see all the details if u wanna.

This is the prize on offer: Bamboo Fun Tablet - Medium

sweet!!!!!!! i doubt ill win cos there are some pretty amazing layouts on there! and this is my first try at it. but oh well. doesnt hurt to try!!!!
