Good morning everyone
Happy Valentine's Day to you all.
Following on from Jac's and Lisa's great tutorials on QDDL's I thought I would chime in with a quick tutorial also.
First I open up a 12 x 12 300 ppi file on a transparent background.
Next open up the kit components. In this case I am using my Bridge and the Feb 2016 kit, Crewel and Unusual.
At this point I usually bring over a couple of background papers and create a "hole"in them so that we can slot a photo in behind the hole.
Here you can see 2 backgrounds and an overlay. You will probably be thinking where is the photo at this point. What I did is choose the purple background and place the overlay on top; invert the overlay and pillow emboss it onto the background and merge those two layers.
Now I am going to bring in the photo. This is a picture of my estranged daughter and her husband.
The photo is now placed into the layout and englarged. I have selected the area behind the photo using the rectangular marquee tool.
You should be able to see the marching ants. At this point go to edit>cut and you should see the hole cut into the background paper in the layers panel.
I have also made a photo mat and given the several layers some styles. Now you can go ahead the build the rest of the layout.
Here is the QDDL.
I hope you have enjoyed this very quick tutorial.
