So I am participating in my first ever blog train! The train is hosted by Pixelscrapper, and the theme was Retro Kitchen. Now, as you can plainly see, there is nothing kitchen-y in the kit. HOWEVER, I used that thought process to make some of the backgrounds in the kit. My goals for this train were to figure out how to change gray scaled items to colors from the thread, to create an alpha, and to create an assortment of backgrounds, which as you can see, I did accomplish all of those things. I separated the downloads into four different sections, so you can download certain sections if you weren't interested in the entire kit.
First is the elements. All of the elements were from Pixelscrapper. I'd like to figure out more about elements for the next train. As I use GIMP, I have a little learning curve as most of the tutorials out there are for Photoshop. There are some brackets, bows, frames, I was really all over the place, which is something I would change going forward.
Second, are the bonus Love Papers, I figured, with February, comes Valentine's Day. Again, the template was from Pixelscrapper. They come in four gradient colors.
Third, is the alpha. I had always wondered how people did it. Now, I know.
And finally, the backgrounds, there are four textured, three polka dot, two stripe, two gradient shell patterns, and three geometric ones.

I hope you enjoy, and I would love any and all feed back since this was my first attempt at participating in a digital scrapbooking blog train.
Here is the list for the rest of the train!
