Welcome (back) to Photoshop Friday! I am so excited to bring Photoshop Friday back and we are starting off with a bang!
For those of you who are new to Photoshop Friday, you are in for a treat. Every week I will bring you 3 short video tutorials that will teach you a new technique in Photoshop that you can then use on digital scrapbooking layouts, hybrid layouts, cards, and so much more. Before you know it, you will have a whole arsenal full of cool Photoshop tricks. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday of every week, I will feature tutorial videos from my past Photoshop Fridays.
In addition to the video tutorial, you will receive a layered PSD template to make your own digital layout and you will receive a PDF instruction sheet. Not only do these PDFs have all of the video instructions in written format, but they also are full of gorgeous layouts from our Creative Team. They will show you how to take the technique you learned and apply it to a different layout for a whole new look. How cool is that?!
Ready to get started? Today we are going to learn how to create our own journaling card. The cool thing about this is that we can customize our journaling card with patterned papers and brushes to fit our layout design. This technique is something that you can also use to make really beautiful cards or other hybrid projects. In the PDF for this week, Creative Team Member Camille Robinson shows us how she made her own journaling cards but used them as a design element for her December Daily album instead of for journaling. So don't restrict yourself to using the beautiful card you make just to your layout.
Here is a look at my layout and a sneak peak of the template that you will be working with today.
