Lewis Ginter Gardens


Working again on our 2013 photobook with our trip to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, Virginia.  Such a beautiful place.... it was lovely just walking around, but we also got to see the butterfly exhibit too -- FUN!!!

I loosely used a sketch I saw on the Sweet Shoppe website.  Here's the sketch:
Now, I know this sketch has a ton of embellishments and whatnot, but I wanted to keep mine simple and showcase the lovely DSP (Designer Series Paper).... along with the photos, of course! =)

The DSP is from the paper pack 'Cottage Wall', and although the light purple color was didn't quite go with my photos.  I was able to darken the paper up to the color you see here.  Within My Digital Studio, here are the steps to change the color of any DSP: 1) Insert a Photo Box to encompass your entire page 2) Select the DSP and bring it in your photo box 3) Choose 'Recolor' in the Design Center (right-hand side of the page) 4) Choose the color you'd like to change your DSP to 5) Select 'ok'.  I chose Concord Crush for my color choice.

Thanks for taking a peek!
Supplies Used:
Background - Cottage Wall DSP #3 recolored Concord Crush
Punch - Flag (filled w/Concord Crush)
Embellishments - Festive Blooms (Whisper White); Bright Blooms (Daffodil Delight)
Font - Long Island (Whisper White); Amaze D and Lucinda Handwriting (Concord Crush)
