Truely Hybrid

Hey everyone! There's really not much I love to do in my spare time more than stamp and scrap on my projects, but I also love to add digital elements as well. We all know that the term "hybrid" means mixing paper scrapbooking with digital scrapping. Well today I created this layout where I used paper, stamps, and digital elements together.
The base of my layout is all paper with a transparency over the photo with flowers and buttons in the corners. I used stamps to stamp the mushrooms and owls onto paper, color with markers and cut them out by hand. The digital part of this layout is in the journaling. I decided I didn't want to use my own handwriting on this layout so I decided to use my computer. The only thing was I wanted to use a color as my background and have the journaling in white. The best way for me to do this was to use my Photoshop Elements to create my white journaling with a brown background. It took me all of 6 minutes to create and print out of my printer.
The fact that I mixed paper scrapping, stamping, and digital journaling together makes this a truely hybrid layout. Try it for yourself! I bet you'll get hooked! Love and blessings to you all!
