Digitally Made June Challenge

Time for a new challenge at
This month we have a sponsor:

Our prompt this time is to Use a Quote
on your 100% digital project
(NOTHING handmade, we want to see purely digital work).
You can also be inspired by a quote and tell us
how you interpreted it in your project.

I created a computer desktop background 
 with images from We R 3:
Ladybug Matilda- pre-colored auburn
Watercolor paper- Ladybug Wishes
Digital Sentiment- Great Day
(all have been resized for my project)

 I used My Memories Suite V8 software to create it.

TIP: make a folder on your desktop to browse to

when using items from digital designers in the software. 
Place the items in this folder then open them up in the software.

The watercolor paper is inserted as a background on my 

custom sized project, based the on the pixels (1920x1200) of my monitor.

The ladybug image is inserted as an embellishment and resized.

The word bubble is a shape in the program,

colored white with a drop shadow added
and resized.

The sentiment is also added as an embellishment

on top of the word bubble and resized.

The calendar was easy to create in the program

because there is a special feature in the program 
for adding calendars. All you do is choose the month and year.
You can change the font and size as well as a few other 
options to design it to your liking. 
I did add the name of the month as a separate text box
 to make it much larger than what the auto calendar
feature would allow. 
I also added a white square punch, reduced opacity,
under the calendar. 

Saved as JPG, exported then added to my computer

as a desktop background, done ! 

NOTHING HANDMADE should be submitted to our
That is, NO printed images, etc. assembled into
That's why we call it a challenge=
to challenge you to use software
to create a strictly digital project
then share the finished jpg/png image with us !
There are many ideas for digital projects such as
digital scrapbook pages, email cards, social media banners,
digital paintings, digital art journal pages, collages,
backgrounds for your computer screen and more.
 Think of things that you would share online, digital images,
not physical hand made items you would give to someone in person.
Creating digitally is fun, plus there is no mess to clean up ;)
