Gratitude Journal {week 36}

On Sundays this year at The Daily Digi, we are going to be sharing a FREE weekly gratitude journal spread.

These pages are a place for you to record little memories you don’t want to forget, little reasons to be grateful. Each week their will be a gratefulness quote as well as a few photo spots.

You can use these FREE pages in a number of ways:

1) As digital scrapbooking templates. The download will always include .psd files for both 2-page 12×12 spreads as well as 2-page 8.5×11 spreads. You can add your own papers and elements and scrap ’till your heart’s content! (This is also a good option for those of you who get twitchy because I started the week with Friday. Since January 1 is a Friday, I like to start each week that way, but you may not! Feel free to adjust as needed!

2) As a digital journal. Keep the colors and text just as they are. Simply flatten the layers and add your notes of gratitude. Easy peasy!

3) As printed pages. Print out and write on them the good old-fashioned way. There is a .pdf file included for printing two letter-sized pages. Print your photos and attach!

If you have missed previous weeks, grab them HERE.

If you have used the templates or print-outs, we’d LOVE to see them! Share a link in the comments or EMAIL ME . We just might feature your page!

Be sure to be back next week for your next FREE journal template!

Using Linear Burn to Add Realism

One of my favorite ways to alter photos or a layout is to add a linear burn blending style. I just love the result!

The Adobe website defines linear burn like this:

Looks at the color information in each channel and darkens the base color to reflect the blend color by decreasing the brightness. Blending with white produces no change.

To be honest, I don’t worry much about the definitions of blending modes. I’d rather just play around!

What I love about linear burn is that it adds a bit of realism when used to blend items onto a textured background.

In this layout, I used linear burn a number of times to help the photo, title, and journaling to blend the the textured brick wall I used as a background paper (the wall was an image I pulled of the internet — for personal use only!)

Let’s take a look up close.

Here is my layout with the photo as-is (other than I light erasing of the edges):

In order to bring in some of the texture, I chose to use linear burn for my blending mode. This blended the photo and brick layer, allowing the texture to show through.

Here is it, zoomed in:

I liked the result and so I did the same thing for the title and the journaling:

Using blending modes is just one more way to add realism to your layouts


What blending modes do you like to use?

Sometimes along the way you might end up with an extra catalog in Photoshop Elements. Since a catalog just references files that are stored elsewhere on your hard drive, you can delete a catalog without losing any of your photos or digital supplies.

FF

I have some fun planner brushes for you. Just grab some lines and plop them onto anything for a quick to-do-list!

FF

I love polaroids and these are so stinking cute I can’t stand it!

FF

This kit hit my funny bone. I’m sure I could come up with plenty of stories to tell with it!

FF

And here’s a little something on the happier side, for the good days!

FF

As we head back to school, this kit jumped out to me. My head is all in planning mode and this kit is calling to me.
