example of mistake found

Hi ya
I posted last time about a mistake I had made that was with the "elements" I was using and I dragged it via the "bin" and not from the window page and it caused a (Graying area where it should be transparent)
as you can see I also hadn't "simplified the layer " and it didn't then allow me to CTRL + G (Group) ok so thats the small box in the (Layers pallet) on the selected layer making sur the image you wish to GROUP is above the main one click on the square box that has a + sign and it will show a little drop down select (simplyfie layer) then CTRL + G :0)

Happy New Year 2009 !!

Hi ya
sorry I haven't blogged in a while have had alot of computer problems involving Trojans ect eek but now all is sorted and I am back hehe !
I hope people had a lovely Xmas and a brill new years eve !!
January 2009 start of a brand new year almost like opening a new book, writing down Goals like a contents page lol.
I bet most people are already getting ready to join up to the gym, I am lready a member but I now have a gym buddy that will take me 3 days a week yay me lol.

ok so I have been keeping some of my digi scraps and solving the errors that I make along the way would love to instantly know how to do things but thats the beauty of "learning"

ok here is a scrap I decided to do for my friend as it was her sons 2nd birthday

I was making the mistake of pulling the element and alphas from the "Bin" and it wouldn't show up as a image that was from a transparent background it had grey around it so I had to what I thought to resolve the issue was to use a paint bucket or to paint it the background color with a brush !! NO WAY time consuming and the look is horrid !!

ok so how did I solve this ?? I looked on some digiscrap forums and asked around and some kind people aske where I was pulling my elements and alphas from, I told them from the bin, they said to leave it in the "original" window it comes from and drag and drop to my main image am using I will have to re do this as I haven't done a after pic yet sorry !!

so thats 2 lessons so far and that was on my second scrap I guess when there is a will there is a way huh, the main problem I have is figuring where to place elements to make them look good and weather the other person will like it, but my "template collection" is getting bigger I do love a selection, I have now found Misty Cato blog and she does brilliant turorials some things I know already but you have to start from beginning as things I may not know could be in it !

I would love to learn how to make my own kit one day my aim is to do that.

ok I shall post again soon till that Scrappy*Doo
