Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial by

I love freestyle and doodled layouts. The funkier the better, at least in my opinion. Today's tutorial features product by our sponsor Kim Hill at CG Essentials.

Lets start by playing with our lasso tool to create some fun cut outs.

In the example above I just drew a heart with the lasso tool. I then copied and pasted the heart to my background paper. Continue to create more cut outs of different shapes just for fun. FYI, since I don’t own a tablet I just use my mouse to create my shapes.

In the example above I added some hearts, a star and a background for my picture. But it’s still missing something. I think I’ll take my pencil brush and add in some doodling now. Try using your wet media brushes, they create some really great funky looks. Just play and enjoy the process, and remember if you mess up you can always start over again. Freestyle is just that, you are free to do what you like. I can’t wait to see what you do. Please post a link to your freestyle digi layouts.
