Hello AnikA here,
some layouts looks so fantatstic and we often think it´s impossible to do such layouts or that we aren´t talented enough. For some layouts it´s true, the digi world has a bunch of techniques I personally don´t know how to do. But one thing I figured out, that we can make amazing layouts with the NBK Design brushes , splashes and artsy pieces.And in a super easy way.
The only thing we have to do, editing a photo : for me the best way and to have some possibilities to create a page is applying the treshold on a photo. I mostly extract it before. Once you did this you can start using all kind of brushes, put it on the top of the photo and clip it in, or lighten it. You have to try what looks best.
For this page I used the art & journal collection: http://www.oscraps.com/shop/NBK-Design/?sort=&page=4
