Crafty Secrets November Linky Party and DT Challenge - Vision of Sugar Plums

Welcome to the November Crafty Secrets Linky Challenge and Blog Hop. Our theme this month is Visions of Sugar Plums. The design team was challenged to create a vintage Christmas project. We hope you will join us for the hop, and then visit the Crafty Secrets BLOG where you can find a free download and details for entering the challenge yourself.

This month I am sharing how to change colors on .png files in Photoshop Elements.
Open your file(s) to be used.  Select Edit>Fill Layer.  Then select the color from the drop down menu.
Next select the color to be used from the color pallet.  Then click OK to apply.
Next click on the Move Tool to drag and drop into place.
Continue to drag and drop images into place.  Once complete, save file and print.
Then complete your project by adding printed papers, vintage buttons, lace, ribbon and holiday embellishments.

Sheila, this is soooooo sweet, and I super love the way you altered the image and colored the letters. Can I come stay with you for a few days so you can tutor me? LOL No need...your tutorial is so clear, I think I can figure it out all on my own! Thanks for another fabulous Crafty Secrets Linky Party project!
