How to Blend Two Papers with a FREEBIE Mask

I have a new set of Watercolor Masks in my CU Digitals Shop and would like to tell you about a fun way to to blend two papers together using them. I've created a FREEBIE you can try out first: Click on the preview picture to download it:

You can find the full set of Watercolor Overlays in my shop for 40% OFF thru the end of January!

(I work with Photoshop, so my tutorial is written for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements Users. My sincere apologies to those who use other software!)

First, choose two papers from your stash that you would like to blend together. I would recommend two that have something in common - perhaps from the same kit - that share similar colors or textures for the best results. Also, if one of your papers has a very busy pattern, you might want the other one to be less busy or even solid colored. But of course, its totally up to you! Have fun with it!

Here are my two papers:

My Watercolor Masks are a collection of PNG files with transparent and black "masked" areas. The only part of the paper "clipped" to the "mask" will show through when we are finished blending everything...

Next, decide which one of your papers will be the base paper and open it up in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. (It doesn't matter which one you choose, you can always switch your layers around if you don't like the end result.)

Next, open your Freebie Watercolor Mask and place it on the layer above the layer holding your base paper. Your document should look something like this at this point:

And lastly, open your second paper and place it on a layer above the layer holding the Mask layer and right click on the top paper layer and select "Create Clipping Mask."

Here is my blended paper looks like:

Enjoy! Christine :)

Retirement Sale :(

I have some sad news: I will be leaving Digiscrappers Brasil by the end of November. I am not able to keep up with my responsibilities there right now. Designing has sometimes been a struggle for me because I am disabled (I have a neurological disorder called Chiari Malformation). But lately things have become much more difficult as my fiance's brother was recently diagnosed with ALS (also known as Lou Gerhigs disease). We are the only family he has. He is slowly dying right before our eyes and there is nothing we can do about it but try our best to make him feel safe and comfortable.

Digiscrappers Brasil has been a wonderful experience for me. I am thrilled to have been included along with their team of incredibly talented designers.

I am clearancing out all of my Personal Use Kits at $2.00 each. (Please forgive me for not including my CU Products, but I have high hopes of opening an exclusively CU Shop in the future.)

You can find my shop, with EVERYTHING MARKED $2.00 HERE (or click on picture below)
