I got make layouts with NYC photos forever. NYC totally has my heart :)
I LOVE this paper so much, I just had to let it shine and use it as a background. And I thought it would be fun to add in some cards from the Project Life kit too for a bit of light layering. And all these wood veneer goodies this month...AMAZING!! Love love love wood veneer.
I used the digital brush that matches the stamp from the scrapbook kit to make a city scene at the bottom of my photo by adding it repeatedly along the edge at a low-ish opacity. I love the way it turned out, especially with the digital title over the top. I have to say, I am loving experimenting with digital elements right now and I love the fact that SC brings out matching ones to the kits each month...so many possibilities!
