Cool Image

Not sure where I found this, but I want to keep it in a “safe” place for future inspiration.  Tried to find it with google image search with no luck.

Create your own paper

Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes has some cool CU elements.  In this tutorial I used her Texture Overlays mixed media 6 and nature made brushes.

I opened my PSE 9 in a 12 x 12 scrapbooking size and filled it with purple color.Paper-1-step-1-purple

Next I laid down an overlay:

Paper-1-step--2-mask  

I adjusted this layer with Color Dodge (100%) to get this:

Paper-1-step--2-color dodge

Next I loaded the brushes and used 2 flower shapes to add to the “blank” canvas.  This was my result.  I stamped them with less than 100% in a pinkish color.

Paper-1-step--4-stamp

Finally I added a light pink layer on top

Paper-1-step--5-color-overl

And adjusted it to hue to get this:

Paper-1-450

When I changed the pink layer to color burn I got this:

Paper-1-a-450

Done!  Isn’t it cool.

I did the same thing with these using green and different brushes.  This time I altered the overlay layer.  First with screen:

Jilbert-paper-2-450

I think this is a nice predictable paper. Then if I wanted it wilder, I adjusted the overlay to luminosity and got this.

Jilbert-paper-2-luminoisity

You try it!  The overlays and brushes are on sale.  You’ll love it.  The possibilities are endless!
