Sometimes I need to take a photo quickly. Most times, my trusty iPhone is nearby...if not connected to my hand! While they don't take the best photos...especially in low light conditions, they are pretty decent. With some editing in Picnik.com, you're good! I used both Picnik and PSE (for journaling because I have tons of fonts in my computer)! (Psst, get FREE FONTS at KevinandAmanda.com!) She'll even show you how to save it to your computer!
I found that when a photo is out of focus or if the face is just too bright from the flash, just switch it to black and white and it looks better.
To keep my pages flat, I used some stamping on the photo. It adds a special touch without adding bulk! So....PULL OUT THOSE STAMPS!
By the time next year rolls around...I plan to be very PSE and digi savvy...and I hope my creating will at least take half as long!
If you've been working on your DD, have you been using some digital elements?
