Really, I wasn't going to bore you with a blow by blow account of my learning experiences with Photoshop Elements but I thought this technique was appropriate for a quilting blog and some of you might be interested.
I'd seen stitch elements in some of the digital scrapbook pages and wanted to learn how to do it so I did a google search and came up with this brief explanation.... my stitch length is probably too short. By the way, I only created the one line of stitches and then I cut and pasted it into the other spots.
I'd also seen some pages using a photograph as a background and thought I'd try that - can you tell the background photo is right after his surgery? and the insert is now?
I realize that making scrapbook pages for a DOG is rather pathetic but he's a cuter subject than Keith or I and I'm creating the pages to learn techniques...not necessarily because I feel the need to document the dog's life (it's just a coincidence that the stitching tutorial also used a doggie photo).
