Digital Card Making with PSP

I love making my own greetings cards and thought that the card challenges would be a lot of fun. I have a lot of paper and pens...and the other things one would need to make great cards. I found myself trying to keep up with what is new on the market... then I realize all the stuff, the papers, glue, and stamps were getting very costly and I was running out of space to store it all.

That is when I decided to make elements for my cards in Paint Shop Pro aka PSP. PSP is a software that I have been teaching myself since version 3. Now using version 13 I have learned that the program can also create images and paint them as well. Light bulb went off...why not use it to make my cards and not just some elements for the cards. And so digital card making began for me...and boy has it saved me money.

This blog now consist of my creations that I have made using nothing but PSP. I found the challenge for me is to teach myself how to meet the different card challenges within PSP.

Well that is how all this digital stuff began...Just thought I share.

Mojo Monday Sketch

Sketch time for Mojo Monday. I just download a pack of digi papers that will go great for this project. After laying out the sketch and applying the papers, for some reason I kept thinking of pears. Not sure why, the thought was just there. I did not have a picture of a pear so I went in search of. Just my luck I found a picture that had the perfect colors for my card. I decided to use it as my focal point. It worked! The challenge was met and my card is now done.
