Photoshop Elements Layout


Hello friends!!

As most of you know, for the most part, I am a digital scrapbooker.  I usually use Stampin’ Up My Digital Studio and I love it, but there were a few things I wanted to do that MDS doesn’t offer……like extracting a photo and feathering it to blend into your background, removing blemishes, etc.  Recently, Go Digital Scrapbooking ran a sale on their Photoshop Elements classes.  I got beginner and intermediate classes for $15 total.  Yeah, I decided to do it. 

This is my homework assignment for class 2 of my 4-week class. 

PSE Class 2 Homework

On this layout, I:

  • edited the photo to extract & feather it
  • cut the heart from a white paper and filled it with a color selected from the photo
  • changed the opacity of the flourish paper
  • flooded the paper behind the flourish paper with a color selected from the photo.
  • flooded the text with a color selected from the photo
  • added drop shadows
  • removed a scratch from Allison's arm using the eraser tools.

I know it’s a very simple page, but by the time I got through 3 lessons in class 2 and figured out where things are in PSE 7 (which is what I have) relative to PSE 9 (which they’re teaching on), I had a killer headache!  LOL

So…………..leave me a comment here to tell me if you’re a digital scrapper, traditional scrapper, not a scrapper, etc.  I’d love to hear from you!!!  :-)

I'm not a scrapper. And your page layout is awesome and I really mean it. I really love the photo of your baby. Allison is getting so big and so pretty too. I had to chuckle a little when you mentioned about getting around in PSE. I know the feeling & it does give you a headache and drains you of your energy. But you did real good! Hugs, Fran
