Inroduction to Digital Scrapbooking



INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL ART FOR PRINTING
TUTORIAL
BY
CRYSTAL JOHNSON


My journey into digital art and digital scrapbooking began about ten years ago. I was raising my son and working fulltime when I realized that I had little to no time to myself and I soon concluded that I needed a crafty hobby. I was looking on-line and googling several different crafts when I ran across scrapbooking. Upon googling this genre further an add for a current scrapbooking software came up for the digital version of scrapbooking called digital scrapbooking. I was soon hooked.

Then a couple years later, I self-taught myself to create my own digital scrapbook kits of various 12” x 12“ papers and elements at 300 ppi (300 dpi for printing) and started to sell the designs in various online websites and communities.

In this tutorial I am going to demonstrate creating a typical digital scrapbooking layout using standard graphics software from Adobe photoshop. The standard size for scrapbooking is 12” x 12“, but due to modern home printing capabilities I am choosing this project as a standard 8.5” x 11” letter sized paper in vertical portrait view.

There are also tons of websites to support this hobby and I will be introducing you to several of these as well.
