Front Porch


I love using paint to help make patterned paper more readable. I stretched this one to fit the paper and recolored it white, lowered the opacity just a bit and then placed my journaling on top.

I originally had white paper for the background but it looked too plain. I placed the floral paper over top and it looked too busy. So, in PSE, I reduced the opacity of the floral paper to 50%. Now you can see it without it being too busy. Just remember that when you reduce the opacity, you’ll be able to see what’s beneath. Having the white paper beneath the floral, preserved the original look of the paper. For the title, I used word art by using the Magic Selection tool while pressing down on the Shift key. Once I’d selected what letters/words I wanted, I went to the Select option on the top tool bar and chose Modify>Contract> and put in 1 pixel. That takes the selection in enough to prevent the background of the word art to be copied. It gives it a cleaner look.

One way to work with pictures and kits is by finding a color palette that works with both. Like this photo. The color scheme perfectly matched the kit created a beautiful harmony between the two.

I wanted to give a little more dimension to the love embellishment at the top of my picture. I used my magic wand tool and clicked on the love potion of the element and selected New Layer Via Copy. Then I added an effect to make it glossy. I used a “sprinkle” effect by Mommyish.

In The Kitchen


This kit is so cute! I see myself using it multiple times. I loved so many of the elements, but to keep them from overpowering the layout, I kept them small and layered in a cluster. That way there was still focus on the photo strip and title.

When I saw this kit, I knew I wanted to make a multi picture layout of the cookies I love to bake. I found a single rounded corner square on a template by Crystal Wilkerson and duplicated it 9 times. I used the grid feature in PSE to make sure my squares were evenly spaced. After I filled all my squares with cookies, I thought it still needed a mat so I duplicated the lowest square in my group and dragged out the corner until it was the size of all the squares put together. I liked the look of it being slightly offset so I left it that way.

I recently started sorting my templates by number of photo spots instead of in folders by pack, under a designer heading. I find I have been way more creative since doing this as I don’t spend as much time browsing my stash to figure out what to use, with the added bonus of actually using things I’ve long forgotten about and still use. It was a daunting task but I love the results!
