I...AM - the Digital Collection!
Hello Friends! Rebecca Larson here bursting at the seams with excitement for one of the newest releases to hit the digital store - I...AM! Earlier this year, I...AM took CHA by storm. All of us digi scrappers, had to use some restraint and patience for it to be released this summer. Finally….its here!!
I knew I wanted to use this charmer to document some pretty exciting things happening in our family. For the last few years we have been in the process of adopting from the Philippines. It has been a long treacherous haul. Lots of tears, bureaucratic red tape, and way too much paperwork! The uncertainty of it all can drive the light hearted mad! Last month, we got word that our daughter's traveling documents were ready, and she was approved to come home! Although taken by the last minute notice of this, we booked our flights and were headed to the Philippines three days after our notification! I am excited to archive our travels at a future date, but the first thing I wanted to document was the first meeting with our daughter. I fell in love with some of the candid photos my husband took of us, and knew they would be the perfect fit with the I AM collection.
I love the versatility of the kit! I wanted to start off with a blank canvas, so I took the robin egg blue “I AM” page, and enlarged it to hide the elements attached to the paper.
With a blank canvas, I dragged and dropped, several elements that I wanted to use as the background. I really wanted to pull in all the colors of this palate to frame the photos I had chosen. I also stacked 3 of the 2x3 gray cards horizontal.
I finally added the photos (using a free poloroid action that I found on DeviantArt.com), a title (used the letters from the expressions, with a clipping mask from the cards), and added some text I am excited to print it and add it to my collection of stories. Thanks for stopping by!
