Scrapbooking With Your Computer & Paper : Memories Line Stacks

AE_TheStoryOfMyLife_Web
One of my favorite photos from last year was taken in September.

I was inspired last week after participating in the GO/venture challenge to make up some of those hand-drawn line stacks as a digital product for Designer Digitals. 


To work with this file for my hybrid layout (combining paper and digital scrapbooking) I opened the file in Photoshop, adjusted the size to 8.5 inches wide, recolored the element (see link below for instructions), and printed onto white cardstock.

This piece was then adhered between my photo and pattern paper strip. To add a bit more texture to the page I used my sewing machine to stitch each of the three main elements together (photo, pattern paper, and line stack).

Here's a look at the same .png line stack I printed out on cardstock after re-coloring in Photoshop.

Here's a close-up look at the little combination of elements including 2 butterflies from the Martha Stewart Butterfly Large Double Punch, a Studio Calico 20% Extra Flashy Label Stickers lifted up with foam squares, and a 7gypsies Word Paperclip:
