Crafty Secrets DT Challenge, Tutorial and Linky Party

Welcome to another Crafty Secrets DT Challenge, Tutorial and Linky Party.  So glad you are here!  I am so hooked on all the possibilities of digital design.  These wonderful files by Crafty Secrets can be used over and over again, creating multiple looks on numerous projects.  

Today we are going to be changing pattern paper to black & white and using the Marquee Tool to create a frame for a layout.
Create a new artwork file and then selected your files to be used.
To turn the pattern paper to grayscale, Click on the Image>Mode>Grayscale and then click OK.
Next select your Rectangular Marquee Tool and select the entire sheet of 12"x12" digital paper.  
Make sure that you still have the Rectangular Marquee Tool selected and then draw an inside box, creating a frame.
Next select the Move Tool and move it to your artwork.
Add photos, digital stamps and journaling to complete.
I hope you enjoyed another Crafty Secrets DT Challenge, Tutorial and Linky Party.  Head on over to the Crafty Secrets Blog where you can link up and post a project you completed using Crafty Secrets products.
