Jen Martakis Creased Kraft + One Sweet Photo = Vintage Charm

I was just fooling around with some great Jen Martakis digi paper when I found a simple way to give your photo some instant vintage charm.

It's quite simple and I'm sure all you Photoshop experts have been doing this forever . . .   :)

Here's my photo - mine happens to be a scan of a print.

Isn't this just so sweet?

It's real easy to do:  (sorry about the video quality - i've been having trouble today with YouTube and Blogger):  If you can't see the video, click "read more" at the end of this post . . . 

I applied all the versions of Jen's Creased Kraft digi paper to the same photo so you can see the differences:

I love it when you get cool results with something so easy!

The incredibly talented Jen Evans interviewed me for her blog.  You can check it out here.  And check out Jen's work -- she has such a beautiful style!

And speaking of interviews . . . did you hear Doris Sander and Lisa Dickinson on Masterful Scrapbook Designs?  Each spoke for about 1 hour with Debbie Hodge about color.  So interesting! They both have a great way with words!
