If you can create a digital scrapbooking layout then you can create beautiful and unique art for your walls too! With the gorgeous selection of digital scrapbooking supplies available from DHD, the possibilities are endless.
I am going to show you how I made a series of 3 framed prints with only a couple of digital papers and photoshop brushes. I used the Vanity Fair Persimmon Solid Papers by Jen Allyson and her Vanity Fair Sepia Stamps.
You can print these off as large artwork pieces for your home for a fraction of the cost of commercial art. You can either print them on your home printer or you can have them printed as a ‘photo’ at any photofinishing service. Printing on a textured paper will really add to the appeal of the finished art as well. The artwork printed on a stretched canvas would look amazing!
For the sake of convenience I am going to print my samples off at home on my printer which unfortunately limits me to 8.5 inches wide – so I am going to do my prints on letter sized paper. But most digital papers are sized 12 by 12 inches at 300 dpi – you can safely upsize these to 150 dpi and they will still print well – especially if printed on textured paper or on canvas.
The prints I am going to make are really simple and best of all they only take a couple of steps and just a few minutes to complete.
Using Photoshop I created a new canvas (file>new) and set my measurements to 8.5 by 11 at 300 dpi.
I then opened the paper I wanted to use and using the move tool (top left) I dragged it on top of my new open canvas.
After installing my photoshop brushes I choose my desired brush from the drop down menu and adjusted the size and colour of the brush if needed.
I repeated this two more times to get my three coordinating prints.
Finally, I printed the artwork on my printer and framed them in simple ‘dollar store” frames. Simple, beautiful, and affordable artwork for your home using your digi supplies.
