Using Texture and Tool BrushSets Tutorial

She writes in this excerpt from her blog:

“As part of my birthday celebration in February, I flew up to San Francisco to play Pokemon Go on Pier 39 with fellow CT member Adryane and her husband Don. When I caught the screenshot of the Ferry Arch from inside the app and the photo of the Ferry Arch with my FujiX-T2, I was already thinking about making a page remembering the day.”

“This was one of the easiest pages I’ve created. It involved combining two photos and some iPhone screenshots using artsy brushes on inverted masks.”

1. Technique Foundation

Note: I used Topaz Simplify to create my sketch, but you can also create a sketch with using the Photocopy Filter.

2. Add Color

Depth and variation in color adds visual interest to your digital artistry.

Stamp or paint using brushes from the same BrushSet, on inverted masks, to add color from the duplicate photo layers to the sketch.

Apply the following Blending Modes:
  • Color Burn at 100% opacity to the top color layer.
  • Linear Burn at 100% opacity to the layer below.
I used the same technique on the extension of the track.

3. Add Texture

Textures add dimension to your digital artistry.

Open and move Textures #2 and #3 from PaperTextures No. 6 and position above the photo layers.

5. Create Custom Embellishments

Use iPhone screenshots as elements to support the theme of your artsy digital scrapbooking.

  • Locate or take screenshot on iPhone.
  • Import into Adobe Photoshop.
  • Resize the images as preferred.
  • Apply a Drop Shadow Layer Style to each image.
  • Create unity in tying the cards together using  #9 file from UrbanThreadz No. 15.
  • Poke ball added above the screenshots, was downloaded from the internet, and has a Drop Shadow Layer Style applied.

6. Personalize with an Exraction

Add context by adding a person to the composition.

Select and image, extract the figure and apply a Drop Shadow Layer Style to create dimension.
Notice that the image was placed just to the right of the card grouping to create unity in the design.

7. Add Words

Words support the visual story and add details to the composition.

Add words in the form of a title and/or journaling.
