Photoshop Friday - Using Digital Stamps to add Texture to Background Papers

Welcome to another Photoshop Friday fun and easy tutorial.  I have to admit I love papers and especially digital papers because they are so easy to create new looks with each project.  Then when you are done creating your project you can save your new paper and now you have 2 papers to work with in the future.

Create your digital artwork file, by clicking on File>New>Blank File.  Then open your files to be used and drag and drop into place.

Then to blend the digital stamps into the background choose each digital stamp layer and click on the Blending Mode and select from the drop down menu.  For the my example I used Overlay.

Next you can adjust the Opacity layer until you get the desired effect.

Remember that you can save your new paper to a different file just by clicking on the Save As button.  That way you can reuse the pattern paper just like you created.

Then continue to add your photos, journaling and embellishments to finish.

Thank you for joining me for another Photoshop Friday tutorial.  Hope to see you again next week.

Don't forget you still have time to join the Crafty Secrets Linky Party going on and while you are there scroll down the sidebar to find free downloadable images for your to use in your artwork.

Wishing you a creative weekend, dear friends.

Sheila, this is so cool. I got really brave and tried my first little digital technique, adding a greeting over one of the blank banners. It worked! Hooray! Thanks for sharing all these great tutorials. You are the BEST!

Hi Sheila, your layout looks fantastic and your daughter is beautiful! I used one of your previous tutorials to add drop shadows to a layout I'm working on and it look so much better, thanks a bunch!
