Fresh Baked: May 17, 2019

Today is considered “Pack Rat Day”. As scrapbookers and photographers, we understand that, right!?! We take one hundred pictures just to get the perfect picture. We have at least twelve kits to choose from for that picture! Time to celebrate us. We’ll let the family celebrate “No Dirty Dishes” on Saturday themselves, right! And then Sunday, we’ll go out and enjoy “May Ray Day” and get more pictures!

Remember when you spend $10 in the store, you get a great new collab! Just because you’re working on that summer body doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a treat!

Sneak Peeks May 16th 2019

May is almost over which means school is almost out! I am not ready! It seems like the school year flew by and pretty soon spring will be done and summer will begin. Florida is officially in summer. It’s getting into the 90’s already.  At least I can beat the heat and scrap to my hearts content this weekend! Our designers have lots of goodies releasing tomorrow! Let’s take a peek!

Tutorial Tuesday (Photoshop Elements)

Repeating Patterns, Part Three

In Part One, we built a repeating pattern essentially on a grid. In Part Two, we went a little further and created a repeating, staggered pattern. And now, in Part Three we’re taking all that we’ve learned to create a repeating pattern with multiple options. Ready?

Open up a new canvas 2 inches square with a resolution of 300 pixels per inch.

Then duplicate your blank layer. The reason for this will explain itself.

Now take a look through your brushes or stamps and choose the one you’ll use first. I used a dragonfly from a free set of butterfly brushes (sorry, can’t find a ling to them). Resize it so it fits into a fraction of your square.

You can see that I’ve duplicated the dragonfly and positioned them in opposing corners.

Then I changed my foreground colour and chose a butterfly stamp, adding it to one of the vacant corners.

And duplicated THAT layer then I Merged all the layers.

I think you might remember this part. Edit>Define Pattern will let you save your creation as a pattern for use with the Pattern Fill tool.

You don’t HAVE to give it a name, but it might make it easier to find later.

Now you need a solid paper for your background. It can be textured, or not.

Then select the Paint Bucket tool, but instead of the Color Fill, go with Pattern Fill. Then go find your new creation.

One click on the paper and BINGO!

But wait! There’s more!!

This time I added some glitter to my brush layer.

And then some hearts…

… and some MORE glitter.

I missed a screenshot where I added in the silhouette of a girl jumping for joy, but you can see the result here.

Look at how amazing it looks with the glitter, which is still there.

Let’s try that one in a staggered pattern. I opened a new 2 inch tall, 4 inch wide canvas and applied the pattern to it. Then I deleted the second repeat so I’d have somewhere to put the offset. Filter>Other>Offset.

I used the same settings I had for the first staggered pattern we did back in Part Two. Then I Edit>Defined Pattern with a different name.

Yes, the same steps as before.

And there’s my new staggered-pattern paper! I could learn to love this technique!!

Have you tried any of the parts of this tutorial? I’d love to see yours!
