Photoshop Friday - Creative Projects

May 2, 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 a sweet spring bird decor for my home.


First I measured the vintage note card that I wanted use as the background and then created a new file in Photoshop Elements.


I opened the files to be used and moved them onto the artwork file.  I love this tag digital file from Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Illustrations as it has stitches around it... no need to take it to the sewing machine to add it.   It is already done!


To add a little dimension I then add a drop shadow and using the Show Style Setting I adjusted it to the desired look using the sliders.


Next save your file.


Print your file and trim around image.  I then took adhered it onto a vintage note card and tie dyed muslin fabric.


Then I glued the small bird to excelsior grass and sat him on top of the flower frog.

I hope you enjoyed another fun and easy Photoshop Friday Creative Project.  Join me again next week for more inspiration.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, dear friends.
