    Default 04.15 Speed Scrap'n'Chat with Cari

    Good morning! I want to be sure everyone knows I'm holding a Speed Scrap in the chatroom today! I'll be there at 10am PST / 1pm EST!




    As we chat, I will pop in here to this thread to update with instructions. Don't miss the fun and the great participation prize!

    ....................................

    Step 1. Select ONE photo only - it will be used twice

    Step 2. Select TWO or more papers to layer

    Step 3. Place photo on page TWICE; enlarge ONE so it is about 1/3 of the page or more, and choose a blending mode to blend it into the underlying paper; use a large soft eraser brush to soften around the edges of the blended photo. Let the smaller photo overlap the edge on top of the larger blended one. (Need help? Look for my extra info on this later in this thread.)

    Step 4. Add a swirl or other decorative border at the top and bottom of each of the photos.

    Step 5. Add a swirl or decorative element under the layered papers so it peeks out at the edges.

    Step 6. Add a journal block, title, and any journaling - the journaling is optional.

    .................................................
    *** Now, when you finish, post your layouts in the gallery within 1 hour from now (by 12pmPST/3pmEST) , then post your finished, linked layout in the SS thread. If you are a few minutes late, don't fret it - I'm not a total stickler. Be sure you also check out the other SS pages & leave some sugar, too!

    Here is my page:


    And here is the participation prize for those who post a layout in time:

    Ok, here are some tips on using blending modes in Photoshop/Elements:
    At the right side of your window you should see the "Layers" palette. See it?
    Near the top of that, you should see a dropdown that says "Normal". That is where you get to change blending modes. Click the drop down and scroll down to "Soft Light" for starters.
    You can experiment with *any* of those blending modes to see the different effects you get.
    What this does is causes the layer you are working with (in this case the photo), to "blend" into the layer beneath it (a paper) in various ways.
    I just *love* playing with blending modes. The results can be so unique. Also, you can change the opacity of the blended layer to adjust how it looks.
