I have been meaning to scan some of my art journaling pages and canvases for a long time. I just have not made it a priority, and I haven't had the time. So last night, I decided to scan a few, and I must say that I am very pleased with the results!
First, I picked a few of my favorite art journaling pages. I then scanned them and saved them as .jpeg images. Once I did that, I used Photoshop Elements to crop and resize. Then I saved each scanned item. Once scanned and saved, I can print and use them for anything!
This morning I printed a few of those scans onto Neenah Bright White cardstock. I then trimmed them down to 3"x4" cards. Here is how they turned out:
I can use these for my Project Life pages or anywhere else I might want to tuck a card. I could have also cut them to 4"x6" or used for card backgrounds, scrapbook pages, etc. There are SO many uses for my scanned pages, and I am quite excited about the possibilities. Now not only do I have the original, I can use my favorites again and again!
So, try scanning a few of your pieces and see what you can do with them! Enjoy!
