Fabric Hybrid Mini Album

This mini was a long in my mind since I saw some papers at PaperBag Studios. Because some of their digital line reminds me a lot hand painted , touchy feel paper, and almost like a art journal.
Because my lack of time to play with mixed media after pregnancy, I felt this line was perfect.
This is to show how digital can help us do great paper projects. And by the fact that is cheaper, and you can play around in PSE and change things a lot.
Anyway , I will talk about some pages and put a complete slide show at the end with all pictures.

Here I 've used a element to print and add as decoration, usually kits comes with many png elements , but sometimes not all work for hybrid depends on what you want, I always look for things that can be used and printed on my layouts or mini albums like this darling house that completely looks as a collage.
Why buy overlays if we can do our own?
I had this digital paper, and printed in transparency and sized for the the same size in the mini album, also another way to do great overlays is using brushes or even png images.
And print on transparency.
Here is another example that I've used these png elements and printed on transparency, I changed the color a little to fit the overall of the album, cut and adhered with diamond glaze.
Another elements are these canvas buttons they really look live printed on canvas to give me more texture I printed on sticker paper from Avery. Also I resized on PSE to fit my 1 1/4 punch from SU. I think its a great solution also to use on cards as sentiments.

Doesn't this look like painting, you have to see it close I loved these collections, because gave a artsy look to it. The green one I've printed on white cardstock and the red one on sticker paper.
The heart is also element from a kit.
Considering Ruby kit, Darcy Kit
Journal Mats you can print as they are or at your text on PSE.

I hope I 've inspired you to experiment with some hybrid, remember that you don't need PSE to work with png images they open fine on any word processor , check my videos to see a tutorial on that.
