dabbling in digital

So here it is friends...my very first digital layout.
Please keep in mind that when it comes to photoshop, I pretty much put the beg in beginner (as in begging for advice!!).
....and that I did it in 20 minutes
...in the car in the mall parking lot
...with only digital papers
...when my brain is completely spent after 8 hours of studying metacogontive learning and memory process. I needed a quick creative outlet!
Well, what do you think?



Be honest, but kind, please :-)

I think it is adorable, I would not have known it was your first. The colour selection is beautiful and the design works well. I love that you did this in the car - there is a challenge for us all

Wow!! I can't believe that was your first digital layout...great job!! I also can't believe that you created this in 20 minutes, in a car, after a major study session...Wow!! Suddenly I think my time-management skills could use a kick-start ;). Looking forward to seeing what you create next!

That is lovely--bravo! Can NOT believe you put this together in the car in 20 min. Unbelievable!
I've done only a couple of digital layouts and fiddled around with the darn things so long it made me crazy.

Well done! :)

I think it's really pretty - honest! I love the colours and I, like you, declared peonies my favourite flower when I discovered them. Waiting in car parks (as we call them in N.Ireland) will never be the same!

Can you tell that is my favorite color combo? ;-)

Wow Melissa! Are you sure you've never done this before ;) Seriously, I think it looks great. I really like how the patterned papers have a layered feel. Way to jump right in there and make a layout. I'm still working up the nerve.
