So, last time I was here, I was leaving DHD. Let’s just say, a LOT has happened since then. If you’re here, chances are you know, but just in case you don’t, here’s a slight recap:
On January 1st, a brand-new digital store opened. This store (which is called Pixels and Company, or P&Co for short) happens to be my favorite, because it has some of the best designers in the industry. Oh, and it happens to be owned by me.
(See? I told you it was a slight recap.)
Opening my own store has been amazing. Thrilling, scary as hell, and everything in between. I’m lucky enough to have an amazing team with me, and I’m happy to be wrapping up our first official blog hop, for interNational Scrapbook Day, and giving you the opportunity to grab this amazing kit for free:
My contribution is this:
I know you want the code, but first, I’d like to give you a little tip. It’s no secret I love mists and splatters; I pretty much include them in every kit I design, and on every layout I do. I think they are an amazing way to add a bit of texture and interest. Here, I’ve got the splatter from More or Less on top of a basic kraft paper from Homebody (debuting on Friday at P&Co):
Pretty, right? But, what do you do if the mist or splatter you want isn’t the color you want? My favorite way to recolor is by locking the pixels. Make sure your splatter layer is selected, and then click on the little checkerboard icon at the top of your layers panel. Here’s the screenshot of mine in PSE (left) and PS (right):
You’ll know you did it right when the icon appears next to your layer name. Now, you can paint over the layer with a large, hard round brush and *only* the existing pixel information will be affected. In other words, easy, peasy:
Another thing I like to do sometimes is make my splatter just a bit stronger, which is especially helpful with a fine mist. To do that, simply duplicate the splatter layer to make it a bit more opaque and visible, like the one below:
So, that’s it. Now, on to the fun stuff. Before you go grab the kit, be sure to follow my FB page, Instagram, Pinterest, and/or Twitter to stay up-to-date on all of my designing happenings. We’ve got loads of fun things going on at P&Co this weekend, and you won’t want to miss any of it!
