Torn Bits and a Freebie

May 19th, 2018 by | free stuff, new goods | , | 2 notes |

If you were a traditional (hands-on) scrapbooker before you switched to digital scrapbooking, you might remember when tearing the edges of your photos to create a textured edge was very popular. I always found that very hard to do because I didn’t want to destroy my original picture nor did I want to order a lot of duplicate prints.  That’s just one of the great things about digital scrapbooking. To get a duplicate of our original, we can just use the keyboard shortcut CTRL + J (just one method of creating a duplicate) to get a copy of our original photo and then be as creative as we like, while still keeping our original photo safe.

This week I set about to recreate the look of torn photographs.   My efforts resulted in 2 new products, Torn Bits 01 and Torn Bits 02.  These products were created from original cardstock, torn, scanned and meticulously extracted, as I found this was really the best way to get the realistic look I wanted.

Torn Bits come in PSD and PNG formats. To use the Torn Bits, open a PSD file in Photoshop, clip your photograph or paper to the gray layer, and experiment with Blend Modes. Hard Light, Overlay, and Soft Light generally work the best, but it depends upon the photo you are using, so experiment to see what works best for you.

In Torn Bits 01, you will see texture in the white, torn edges, while the area where you clip your photo does not have texture.

In Torn Bits 02, you will see texture both in the white torn edges and on the area where the photograph is clipped. This set also includes a few folded, worn areas to add extra charm to your photo.

Save 25% now through May 27th, or choose the Torn Bits Duo and save 40% on both products.

Flower and Foliage Stamps, along with a Freebie

April 29th, 2018 by | free stuff, new goods | notes |

SnickerdoodleDesigns here!  Some designers call them “blendables,” some call them “stamps,” and  I’m sure there are other names for them too. But “they” are the result of stamping a brush on a paper. Something like this:

The image of this flower was stamped on a paper using a brush. You can then blend the stamp into a paper, combine it with other stamps, apply a mask and brush away parts you don’t want, apply a layer style, colorize… and I’m sure there are other things I’ve not included here.

I love to combine stamps to create a design that can be used to add that extra oomph to a paper or element.  This is a combination of a stamp from my new Flower Stamps 01 pack and Foliage Stamps 01 pack, as well as a newsprint from my Newsprint Collection.

The fun of using stamps like this is to experiment with Blend Modes to see what you come up with. I’ve used the Overlay Blend Mode on both of the examples below.

Find them here:  Flower Stamps 01

 

Find them here: Foliage Stamps 01

If you’ve like to experiment on your own, click on the image below to download this freebie.

 


 

Experiment and have fun!
