First try at digital scrapping

My printer has been playing up which meant major stress for my own dare at No 8 Wired. But once again it seems I function better when under stress and decided to give digi scrapping a go. After all I'd been downloading all those brushes in the past and hadn't really used them yet... So I set to work and tried to create a piece of 'Street Art' or graffiti on the computer. And you know what? I LOVE how it's come out! I was able to get the 'paint' layers exactly how I wanted and I doubt I would have been able to do that with the real stuff.

The image of my kiddo's is supposed to resemble a template image like taggers sometimes use. And the attitude just completely tops it in my opinion.

So am I going digi now? Not likely, but I am inspired to at least have a good look at all that I have downloaded over the past year or so and perhaps incorporate it in my regular work. Besides, this one took me just about as long as a regular layout, there was so much stuff I had no idea how to achieve and had to 'google'. LOL
