Actions in Action

I haven't mentioned lately how I get a kick scrapping with actions.  Wendyzine's actions make it easy and fun -- not to mention fast!  From wordart actions to photo effects to help scrapping a page, she has an action for most anything.

Lilas Designs Time Flies kit, Wendyzine Embellisher 4 action
This page, above, was so fast to put together.  I found this cute little gal in an old family album.  No clue as to her identity, but isn't she a doll?  This page was a snap:  Lilas Designs' papers already had cool edging, like the background with the lace and leaves.  And just choosing elements here and there, I only added 5-6 more items before the page was complete.  For a little added interest on the photo, I clipped it to a paper and, using a soft brush, masked out a little bit of the photo to let the pretty floral print of the paper peep through.

The explosion action, below, took me a few tries, but was a lot of fun.
Blagovesta Gosheva I Am Who I Am kit, Wendy Zine Embellisher 4 Action
With this action, you start out with a central, focal-point piece; here I used Blagovesta's adorable art doll.  Then the action walks you through element by element, working its way left to right around the figure.  I want to keep trying on this one and really have my items picked out.  It's a lot more bits and pieces than I typically put on a page, it seems.  I'm already ready to try it out again on another page.

Here are a few pages using her sketch actions and embellisher actions.
