Step-By-Step Hybrid & Pickled Buttons

I thought I would talk about hybrid a bit. Because I'm a digi-lover, but also a traditional patterned paper lover, I want to combine the two (hybrid) as much as possible. I have some paper I really want to put to use, so...

I created this wave of pictures on Photoshop...

And then I "cut" the wave of pictures and dragged the two parts over to another Photoshop "document". I don't have a 12x12 printer (*sad face*), so I have to be creative. Dividing up the picture wave allows me to cut them out and put them together to still create a 12x12 long picture wave. I also added some other things to the page so I could cut them out for my page (but I only used the "Oh!).

Finished product! I have so much more to learn about hybrid. Oh, one cool thing I like about this page is that I outlined "faces" with black, so it really makes it stand out. You will have to click on the photo to get a better view of that.

Pickled buttons! I bought a Bag-O-Buttons a few months ago and put them into this relish jar. So now when ever I open the jar, it smells like pickles. It makes me laugh! I love these little jars for storing such colorful things as buttons. What will you do with your next empty jar of pickles? Haha!

Did you cut out the letters after you printed them? What did you print them on?

I printed it on Photo paper by Epson called Ultra Premium Presentation Paper, the Matte kind. It was printed on the same sheet as the photo wave.

Yes, I cut out the letters. That font was pretty easy to cut out. (=
