So my sister is huge into visual Bible Journaling. She is super artistic and very talented when it comes to drawing and all things visual. Me? I can barely draw a stick figure on a good day but…after months of watching her work…I finally figured out a way I can tap into some of the “visual” stuff too…digital scrapbooking.
I used to do digital scrapbooking a long time ago but I got out of it because it took too much time and all that. Life got in the way, didn’t have the money to put into and all that.
Well, I figured out how to do some basic digital “scrapbooking” with open source and free online software that will allow me to dress up some of my favorite Bible verses to post online.
I used Open Office Draw to insert some of the freebie digital scrapbooking elements (the back ground stuff). Then I used it to enter text (the Bible verse). But when I went to save it, it didn’t save as a jpg. It saved as an open office draw file. I did find where I could export it from the program to a pdf so I did that. Then I went online to a free pdf to jpg converter http://image.online-convert.com/convert-to-jpg and turned it into a jpg so I could upload it as a photo.
Here is my first 2 minute project:
I am excited!
