Welcome to the Crafty Secrets October Linky Party. This month, we are celebrating Thanksgiving, cooking and recipe inspired projects. Each design team member has prepare a tutorial to inspire you. Today, I am sharing how to add pattern paper to text using Clipping Masks.
(Layout created with Kitchen Papers and Creating with Vintage Illustrations CD)
Start by creating your new artwork file.
Open files to be used and drag onto new artwork file. Then click on the Text Tool and type the word to be used.
Using the Move Tool to move the Text Layer below the Pattern Paper Layer.
Making sure the Pattern Paper Layer is selected, click Ctrl G (on a PC) to clip the Text Layer to the Pattern Paper Layer.
Next link the two layers by click on the link button on both layers. Now you will be able to move them as one element to your artwork file.
I hope you enjoyed another fun and easy tutorial.
Now it’s your turn!
