Girl Power Papers

I have been really sick and not doing much graphics as a result. I'm on the road to recovery now, but I still feel like death warmed over when I get home from work in the evenings.

The theme for Scrap Kit Challenge this month was Girl Power. Here is the itty bitty paper pack that I made for the group mega-kit. I used overlays/greyscale papers by MsBhvin Scraps for the papers with the hearts because I still haven't figured out paper design yet. I don't think that saving papers as jpg is a really good idea because either the papers are really big or there is lossy compression. These overlays were very speckly due to the compression and I ended up spending quite a bit of time fixing the pixels. I'm also not sure of the point of making papers. Why not just make seamless tiles? Most papers appear to be a repeating pattern.

I've floated the idea of doing a blog train at the end of the month after everyone has submitted their kits since we no longer have a website for downloading everything. Hopefully, this will come to pass and non-group members will be able to get everyone's portion of the kits.

I'm running behind on my kit design due to being sick. We were supposed to make fasteners last week. I think I'll just make a big elements pack and an alpha, of course.
