Anyway, while I am pondering the new kit (which will be here in a couple of days), I thought I would let you all know how grateful I am for all the love that you leave me each month. It means such a lot to me and encourages me to continue with my monthly blog for Club Scrap.
Here goes for July. Here is something that I came across a while back but could not decide what photo to use for it. Now that Cantina is here I have chosen a photo that I think will be much enhanced by the lovely colors and textures of this wonderful kit.
Here is the photo.
As always, open up a blank new document with a transparent background. I have already selected a background and placed my photo on it.
You will see that I have roughened up the photo at the bottom.
Now add another layer and type some text. I have chosen Forte regular from my font library and resized my text to make it really pop.
An aside here - fonts are rather temperamental and can cause crashes. They also take up a lot of space. What I do fairly regularly is clear out the fonts that I just do not use. By doing that, my font library becomes a whole lot more manageable. Also I keep all my downloaded font zip files on an external hard drive so I can always find the font again if I need to.
Going back to the layout, I thought it would be fun to do something a little different. My version of photoshop has a solid 3D component so I thought we could do 3D for the big title.
When you hit yes a whole lot of magical stuff happens!
Here you can see that I have been playing around with textures and gradients. I think that enough has been done with this title now.
Enough fun! I added one of the beautiful overlays and now I really think that this is done.
I do hope that you have enjoyed my creative exploration. Please bookmark my blog so you have it as a reference.
