Using More Elements from the Digikit
I added a new blank page, and pulled in the brownish background. Then I added a frame- this digikit has only one, but the size and shape can be tweaked., It also is draped with a cobweb to suit the theme for the scrapbook. I pull the frame into a large oval, filling most of the middle of the page.
This frame is for the picture of my Halloween cat - whose name is Pumpkin. When her photo is pulled in, the image adjusts to the size and shape of the frame.
This does a nice job of adding interest to the center, but I want to make the picture more Halloweeen like. She is looking over to the side, so I pull in an embellishment of a spiderweb. This is set to fit in the top right corner, and I want it on the left side, so I open the Arrange window, and use Flip, horizontal to turn it around. I also adjust the original size of the spiderweb so that the spider seems to hang where Pumpkin is looking. I am doing quite a bit of adjusting to this page, so after I add the first couple things, I freeze the layer and add another one. The last thing I do to the spiderweb is to format the lines in it with a color that makes it stand out more than the original black.
As well, I add an embellishment of bats. The ones in the bottom right are close to the full size, and then I put a set in the top right, after flipping them and shrinking them. I add a witch's hat to Pumpkin's head, a black cat to the bottom right corner, and a box for text for my cat's name. I decide this page is going to look a bit busy if I add anything else.
In the text window at the bottom of this page I adjust the text size until it just fits between some of the embellishments. After the text is in place, I change the color of the text to orange.
