Creating Hybrid Digital Portraits

Welcome to February everyone!  I am excited to kick off this month on the blog because the Peers are focusing on Hybrid projects.  Many digital scrappers started off with traditional (or not-so-traditional) paper scrapbooking – I am definitely in this group.  Although I have moved to almost 100% digital for memory-keeping pages, I still love to get my hands painty with mixed media art journaling types of projects.  I am truly in my artistic happy place when I can combine digital and tangible art together into one amazing project.  Today, I am going to take you on a journey through the process of creating a hybrid portrait using a digital photo sketch and traditional art supplies. Ready to get started?  Then come on in and join me . . .
