Name

My name is Anja De Dobbelaere and I live in Belgium, in a town called Dendermonde. I have a husband, Wim, a daughter, Linske, who is going to be 14 soon, and a cat, Felix. I am 47 years old and I love Photoshop, digital scrapbooking, all things vintage, Sci-Fi and Fantasy in both books, movies and TV series, crocheting and knitting.

layout

The inspiration fort his artwork was the quote from Anaïs Nin, that I used on the layout. At the time when I made this collage, it was very applicable to me, I was going through some major changes in my life. I was also inspired by the amazing work of Luis Falero Ricardo. The girl that comes out of the flowers is from his painting ‘L’étolie perdue’.
The Blend Modes are my favourite Photoshop tools and I have used A LOT of them on this image. I did a lot of extractions as well and have used many textures.
This piece was turned into a in a step-by-step video tutorial for one of Sebastian Michaels Awake classes and it was featured in Somerset Digital Studio, the Spring 2016 edition. I’ve printed this on a canvas and it’s hanging in my living room.

started

I have always been very creative. As a child I was always drawing, painting, making things with paper, crocheting and knitting clothes for my dolls. However, at the age of 18 I was advised to go for an administrative & language education, because a graphic design education wouldn’t give me a decent job – so they said.
I did however take evening classes in graphic techniques (aquarelle, etching, linocut and more of that) for 4 years.
I discovered Photoshop in 2007 when I finally decided to go for that long lost dream and enroll for a graphic design course. Then I discovered the exciting world of digital scrapbooking in August 2011, while looking for images for my end assignments. I fell in love immediately. I guess that the idea of being a designer one day started there. My love for digital scrapbooking and my passion for Photoshop were the perfect combination.
One year later, in 2012, I applied for a designer position in two stores. I chose a small Dutch store to begin my journey as a designer but it didn’t turn out so well. I was feeling very insecure about being a designer and I guess I just wasn’t ready at the time. I still had so much to learn.
It was in the spring of 2015 that I really did get started, professionally. I started selling my goodies in an Etsy store from two fellow Belgians, and 6 months later I had two stores, and I went solo on Etsy. I’ve been selling at The Digichick since February of this year.

inspired

Movies, music, books, places I’ve seen, moods, colours, patterns, textures… and Pinterest!

tools

Computer: I work on a HP computer and I have Windows 8.1. By the time you’ll read this, I’ll have upgraded to Windows 10, it is scheduled for this week. I worked on a Mac during my graphic design education but I just couldn’t get used to it.
I have 6 TB of space on my computer and a 8 GB RAM memory. My monitor is a rather small Packard Bell screen. It’s probably 6 years old already, I’d love to have a bigger screen someday.


Program: I work with the Creative Cloud and I use Photoshop nearly every day. Next to that I also use InDesign and Illustrator. I’m not very fond of Illustrator, it’s not as intuitive as Photoshop, but sometimes it does come in handy.
I also use the regular Microsoft programs like Outlook, Excel, Word and – every now and then – Powerpoint. And WordPress, for my site.


Camera: I’ve had my Nikon Coolpix P510 for three years now. I probably don’t use all the features that it has but I do play around with the settings when we’re on vacation. The Coolpix P510 has an amazing 42x zoom, a zoom that goes even wider than the standard lens in a DSLR.

Anything Else: No tablet… I do have a Huawei smartphone but I don’t often use it. I am sure that I’m a huge exception but I don’t see the point in using my mobile all the time. It is far too complicated for me as well LOL. I often have to ask my daughter for advice.

tipstricks

The Blend Modes are my favourite tools in Photoshop. There is no limit to what you can achieve with those. I usually go through of all them, I don’t always know what Blend Mode will give what result and I love surprises! Try it yourself! If the effect is too strong, try lowering the opacity or masking out certain areas where you don’t want the effect to be applied.

favorite

Picking one favourite product was not easy… but I have chosen ‘Things To Do In The Garden’ Collection because it was the first collection where I’ve actually started to make drawings for. A lot of those illustrations were added to the collection and some of them were used on the patterns and mixed media papers as well. I picked the colours from a fashion style sheet but tweaked them a bit.


DesFav

popular

I have four stores and they all have a different target group. The most popular products are not the same in my stores. But looking at sales and numbers, I’d say that the Wonderland Collection is probably the most popular in general. This huge and artsy collection was inspired by the story of Alice In Wonderland but I’ve given this a very personal touch. Not the standard Alice colours, patterns with a little extra, a lot of paint and artsy things, touches of gold… Maybe that is why people like it so much. But the story of Alice is still very popular, although this story was written in 1865.

Inspirational Pocket Pages

It’s the time of year I start thinking about and planning my memory keeping strategies for the coming year. Life has changed significantly over the past few years and keeping up with the memories isn’t as easy as it once was. Every year I consider pocket scrapping, and every year I fail. But it doesn’t keep me from being inspired as I swoon over all the gorgeous examples. Here are just a few that have me giving pocket scrapping a genuine try this year. Images are linked to source.

{Water}Coloring Printables

Jacqui E. Smith’s store was new to me this month, as it probably was to you. I’ve been subscribed to her newsletter to follow all her new plannery releases. When I saw these
awesome printable coloring pages, I immediately knew I wanted to break out my new Peerless watercolors.

First, I printed Jacqui’s design onto watercolor paper. I’m still experimenting with what works better… laser printer vs. inkjet printer. My paper was a little thick for my printer, so the design didn’t quite print centered. I decided that was okay, though, because it would give me a space to journal about some things I’m thankful for.

Next I gathered my supplies:

  • Watercolors
  • Water brushes
  • Art Masking Fluid (tinted)
  • Silhouette Hook
  • Water
  • I wanted to paint a watercolor wash across the background of the page. Since this design had quite a few tiny spaces, I decided to use the masking fluid to mask out the design. I grabbed my medium brush and painted the masking fluid over all the areas I don’t want to wash in the background color. Let this dry super well. Depending on how thick you apply that masking fluid, it can take a while. Be careful not to pick up the paper while it’s still wet or that fluid can run. (Yes, this is the voice of experience talking!) The black ink edges did bleed a little, but that adds to the handmade look.

    Once the masking fluid dried, I painted the background. I wanted my page to be in fall colors, so I started with a dark orange, blended to a burnt umber, then a reddish brown to a yellow brown.

    Now it’s time to let everything dry again. This won’t take nearly as long as the masking fluid. Once it’s dry to the touch, it’s time to wick away the masking fluid. Using the Silhouette Hook, scrape up a corner of the dried masking fluid and peel it all off.

    Now, with the design left white, I was ready to paint the rest of the page.

    My final touch was to add a list of things I’m thankful for. Now I can hang up my painting as a daily reminder to give thanks in all things.

    Slightly Imperfect

    We all struggle with perfection, or rather, we struggle with our imperfection. Dawn Inskip, in her kit Slightly Imperfect, does an amazing job capturing this all-to-common experience. I love her color choices of white and cool greys, allowing us to contemplate and express the parts of our lives that aren’t quite right. I love the artsy feel that allows for authentic reflection. Let’s take a closer look.

    Name

    Bio I started as a paper scrapper way back in early 2003 and a few years later found digi-scrapping and never looked back. I soon joined my first digi store and the joys of the learning curve, aka Photoshop. I joined The Lilypad in June this year – my dream store and instantly knew I’d finally found home.

    I live in England, a little North of London on a map; with my soul mate and hubby Paul, Daughter Carly and more often than not – her boyfriend; plus our pets – a few birds and a lizard with attitude. Carly and her bf are both falconers … she gets to hand rear baby birds at home – mainly owls and more recently, Pied Crows and Hammerkops; they learn to fly in my lounge – oh the mess, but sheer joy.

    I’m lucky enough to work from home and digi designing is my full-time occupation. I love to draw and paint – many of my illustrations end up in my kits. I hand make most of my kit papers and elements too, using a variety of mixed media. Many a kit/collection has been born out of necessity to scrap my daughters’ life.

    I love a great quote and am always drawn to photoless layouts, so combining the two is perfect for me.

    started

    I started as a paper scrapper way back in early 2003 and a few years later found digi-scrapping and never looked back. I soon joined my first digi store and the joys of the learning curve, aka Photoshop. I joined The Lilypad in June this year – my dream store and instantly knew I’d finally found home.

    inspired

    I’m inspired by everything around me – an ad on TV or in a magazine, a colour scheme etc. Many of my kits are also born out of necessity to scrap our own family life.

    tools

    Computer: Acer, Windows 10, 16GB RAM, 3TB HD, several EHDs

    Program: PS CS5

    Camera: Nikon

    Anything Else: Wacom Bamboo Tablet.

    My design tools are mainly artists papers, watercolour paint, inktense pencils, gesso, modelling paste and other artist mediums; scanner and my sewing machine.


    tipstricks

    I like a page to look real/touchable (I guess that stemps from being a paper scrapper in the past); I’m always trying to perfect shadows.

    The only tip I can think of is when scrapping, don’t forget to include journaling, the reason why you probably scrapped the photo(s) in the first place. And don’t forget the when and where. I’ve recently been going through some old family photo’s and some of them I’ve no idea of any details, which is a real shame.

    favorite

    My fave product may not have made it into my Lilypad store yet. I opened here in June of this year and gradually releasing older popular products, at the same time as trying to create new things.

    Dearest Diary Collection is a great go-to product – it’s so useful for everyday scrapping, all about me pages etc – very generic and worth its’ weight in gold!

    Gratitude Journal {week 42}

    On Sundays this year at The Daily Digi, we are going to be sharing a FREE weekly gratitude journal spread.

    These pages are a place for you to record little memories you don’t want to forget, little reasons to be grateful. Each week their will be a gratefulness quote as well as a few photo spots.

    You can use these FREE pages in a number of ways:

    1) As digital scrapbooking templates. The download will always include .psd files for both 2-page 12×12 spreads as well as 2-page 8.5×11 spreads. You can add your own papers and elements and scrap ’till your heart’s content! (This is also a good option for those of you who get twitchy because I started the week with Friday. Since January 1 is a Friday, I like to start each week that way, but you may not! Feel free to adjust as needed!

    2) As a digital journal. Keep the colors and text just as they are. Simply flatten the layers and add your notes of gratitude. Easy peasy!

    3) As printed pages. Print out and write on them the good old-fashioned way. There is a .pdf file included for printing two letter-sized pages. Print your photos and attach!

    If you have missed previous weeks, grab them HERE.

    _____

    If you have used the templates or print-outs, we’d LOVE to see them! Share a link in the comments or EMAIL ME . We just might feature your page!

    Be sure to be back next week for your next FREE journal templat

    Name

    Hello 🙂 I’m Jacqui Smith. I live in Australia in beautiful sunny Queensland with my husband + son. I’m a working stay-at-home-schooling mum. Each day is full and intertwined with learning, earning + topped with fun, (usually cards games at break times). Most of my work life has been in my own graphic design business. The last few years we added home-schooling into the mix. As my name is pretty common my husband suggested some tweaks to make it more unique, and so I design under by Jacqui E Smith.

    When I’m not crafting ideas for new products, I enjoy hanging out with my family + friends, laughing out loud, reading, watching a favourite show (currently Madam Secretary, White Collar + Heartland) or movie (Remember Sunday is my current fave), seeing our beautiful country in our caravan + indulging in buckwheat carob bars.

    I take millions more photos that I could ever use + also enjoy journalling the meaningful moments of my day. I like to say I start with thankful + end with awesome. With all the gorgeous planner binders on the market + my focus on gratitude, creating a Faith Planner was a match made in heaven. I can insert memories without feeling like I have to be caught up. It seems a little strange as I thrive on large design projects in my work, yet when it comes to my personal creativity I’m more of a free spirit. It’s great to be creative off the screen to splash some paint + stick some washi.

    This set of dividers for my Faith Planner were made with my So Thankful digital
    papers + stamps, printed on canvas paper. They have a beautiful natural feel. You can follow along with my tutorial + make your own set of dividers.

    started

    It’s difficult to put a date on when I started. What’s work + what’s play when you enjoy designing!? Life takes you on a journey + I’m surprised as I look back at how things weave together. Nothing is wasted. Everything we learn helps to take us to the next destination. I’ve been a graphic designer for about 25 years now. One of my first digital projects I can remember was making a flip album of scripture cards using my favourite verses + beautiful free stock photography. Not long later I ventured into making the annual calendar for family and friends, each year experimenting with different design styles. In 2009 I was drawn to create my calendar with a variety of free digital scrapbooking supplies I found online. Naturally I wanted to make my own designs 🙂 Years into creating digital scrapbooking products I have circled back around to add planners once again.

    inspired

    Inspiration comes from so many different places. When it comes to product designs I generally begin with a concept, something I want to encourage others to express, like our unique qualities in Nip and Tuck (my favourite product below), or in the case of planners, so we can not only be organised but enjoy what we do.

    tools

    Computer: iMac 27″ 5K Retina. I noticed the difference immediately + it’s so much easier on the eyes.
    OS 10.11 | 24GB Ram | 256 flash drive + a few external drives


    Program: Creative Suite 6 : Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign + Acrobat Pro are my core four!
    RadLab for awesome photo recipes + it’s super fun
    Suitcase for organising fonts, it’s so easy to organise by theme + style.


    Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3, my favourite lens is a 25mm.
    iPhone 6 is what I use to take most of my memory keeping photos these days. The best camera is the one your have on you at the time right!?


    Anything Else: Wacom Intuos tablet + pen
    A variety of planners binders 🙂 Kikki K is an Aussie company, they are gorgeous + easily accessible down here. Websters Pages Color Crush, again gorgeous designs + colours. Levenger Planner discs + punch, super versatile. I’m currently awaiting my parcel of Happy Planner discs 🙂


    tipstricks

    The best intentions don’t get you as far as a well thought out plan. I’m the first to admit to having too many projects on the go. As creatives we have far more ideas than we do time to try them out. Designing planners has helped me organise my day, especially with the mix of work, family + home schooling. My secret for success it to start with the end in mind as Stephen Covey says and make a plan backwards. You can get my
    five simple steps for project and todo list success.

    favorite

    Nip and Tuck is a collection focused on paper folding + cutting with a touch of metal to represent the message from society that tells us we should get rid of these imperfections, cover them up, tuck them away. So often we try to hide what makes us unique, maybe even seeing them as flaws. Rather than focus on these so called imperfections, look to the qualities, our real value + beauty, that makes us who we are. Because being an amazing unique individual is something to celebrate!

    Growing up I enjoyed reading comic books, mostly Archie and Veronica + Garfield. When I first started working in the artroom I used what was called a Reproduction Camera. It converted photos into images made with dots using special screens. It was one of my favourite parts of the job. Converting what I would do manually in the darkroom to digital for my Comic Book products has been a blast. And telling a story comic style is just so much fun 🙂
