Creating Knock Out groups in Photoshop

I have worked out how to use knock outs in Photoshop and am delighted they are easy to do! A knock out is basically a window that lets other layers show through so you can create a frame and place a photograph underneath so it appears in the frame. The beauty of it is, the window can be any shape and can become part of the theme of the layout.

I knocked this up quick to show you – it’s very basic but captures my cat’s mesmeric stare and subliminal command…. Give Me Chicken….

I’ll put together a couple of basic layouts with fancy knock outs in the next day or so and share them here with a quick tutorial on how to create your own as well. Watch this space!

Love and Kisses welded word for digi layouts

We can all use some love and kisses. Don’t know if you’ve ever seen the work of Masaro Emoto and how the molecular structure of water can be affected by human vibrational energy, “thoughts, words, ideas and music” but I find it very interesting. If you would like to learn more about him and his intriquing research here is a link: http://www.life-enthusiast.com/twilight/research_emoto.htm.

Well, we don’t need excuses for more love in the world but here’s a little from me to you. It makes for a happy and fun scrapbooking title page. I would like to give credit to Eleanor Morgan (see Deviant Art for more examples of her work) for the super pattern I used to fill in the letters.

It’s a .png and maybe I’ll convert to a .gsd for those of you with a Craft Robo, Silhouette, etc tomorrow when I’ve got more time.

I’ve been busy today setting up some alphabet sets to play with and thought you might like one of them. They are 300 dpi, RGB and saved in .png format. There’s an example of one of the letters below.
