February Templates at Scrapper's Guide.

To celebrate the month of “LOVE” I have created two new templates for the Scrapper’s Guide Premier Members as part of this month’s quick page album. The kit for February is called “Rule my world” by Irene Alexeeva. Just click on the images above to get a closer look.

It’s a beautiful kit with deep drop shadows already built into the elements so I found it a lot of fun to work with. If you don’t already know, we are now producing layered templates instead of quick pages so that you will have total flexibility with the pages you create. Watch Linda’s latest videos for Photoshop Elements and Adobe Photoshop to see how easy these new templates are to use. It is pure magic! She also shows you how to adjust your templates for pages that are not the traditional 12 x 12 inches. For the Elements video, click here. For the Photoshop video, click here.

The burned effect that I have created with my type on the Hessian background is very easy to do. Use black as your foreground colour when you type your words and then change the blend mode of the type layer to “overlay”. The blend mode you use may vary depending on the background paper of course so you can experiment. Do you know that you can toggle through blend modes easily? Click on the blend mode “Normal” at the top of the layers palette so it is highlighted in blue. Now press the down arrow key on your keyboard and watch how your type changes with each blend mode. It’s just more Photoshop magic!
