Layout Remakes With Artsy Templates
In this series of tutorials, the aA Creative Team are reworking older layouts to show you how they made improvements.
Should you recreate older layouts?
It’s a personal decision.
Time spent recreating old layouts is time lost on new pages, but if you have a page that really bothers you, then it might just be worth the effort.
And Layout Remakes With Artsy Templates are a GREAT option.
“There are a few layouts that I have created yeas ago that catch my eye when I scroll through my library. They are begging to be remade in my current artsy/tradition style and this is one of them.”
1. Fast and Easy with Artsy Templates
Artsy Layered Templates take the headache out of designing an artsy digital scrapbooking or digital artistry layout.
These pre-designed multi-layered .psd files provide all the elements in the right place to make the digital magic happen.
Simply personalize with your own DigitalART supplies and photos.
“I decided to use a template to achieve the look I was after. Anna’s templates are perfect for a quick and easy Artsy Layout. I chose template No. 21 from Project Template Album No. 2 series. I modified the template by first flipping it horizontally and deleting some of the layers that I didn’t need.”
2. Blend with a Clipping Mask
The layers included in the templates have blended edges making it easy to apply those effects to your photos.
This happens in a simple process:
- Move the photo or image above the template mask layer in the Layers panel using the Move tool from the Tools panel.
- Clip the layer to the underlying mask layer by going to Layer> Create Clipping Mask.
- Notice how your image layer now conforms to shape and properties of the underlying template layer.
See this Easy Blended FotoART with Templates video tutorial for further guidance.
“I clipped the photos to the clipping masks and added an artsy background paper. I selected a few themed brushes and elements to compliment the page.”
3. Finishing Touches
Add embellishments and journaling.
The shadowed elements and LabeledWords add visual effect along with the journaling that support the story of this artsy digital scrapbooking layout.
