Photoshop Friday - Creative Projects

April 25, 2014


Thank you for joining me for another fun and easy Photoshop Friday Creative Projects Tutorial.  I hope you continue to join me each week as we create some beautiful home decor, memory gifts and fun party ideas using Photoshop Elements.  This week I created this easy and beautiful Memory Magnet from my Instagram photos.  
(Project created with Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Typography CD)
 
Create your artwork file to the size that you want your magnet to be.  Then open the digital files and photos that you would like to use.
 

 
For my background I chose this vintage book image and layered my photos, flower and word art on top by dragging, dropping and resizing the digital files.

 
The great thing about digital files is how versatile that they are.  You can change the size, color, opacity to suite your own artwork. 
 
Once I finished, I saved the file and printed on photo paper.   You can also use other papers and fabrics depending on the look you want to achieve.

 
I trimmed the artwork and backed it with cardstock to give it more strength.  I then added a vintage button and a piece of lace.  Next adhere the magnets to the back.

 
Print out a few to give to a special loved one and keep one to bring a smile to your face. I hope you enjoyed this Photoshop Friday Creative Projects Tutorial. Hope to see you back next week for another fun and easy creative tutorial.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, sweet friends.
