Hybrid Layout with Tutorial

Here’s a fun hybrid page I made for the Feb 14th Prima Hybrid newsletter. If you haven’t signed up for the Fresh Cuts Newsletter yet, I totally recommend it! There’s a new tutorial every week plus loads of inspiration! You can sign up right here.

I took this photo of Gabe months ago. It’s kind of a funny story actually – he was having bananas for lunch, and he smeared handfuls of them in his hair. It was time for his nap and I didn’t want to give him another bath right then, so I just used baby wipes and washcloths to try to clean his hair and that’s how he ended up with this cool hairdo :)!

New SMJ Release and a Blending Technique

Almost Spring

Technique: Blended Photo Background 

Here’s how I made the flowery background on this page (using Photoshop CS):

Step 1: I opened a blank 12×12 300 dpi document in Photoshop, then copied and pasted a the 12×12 “Sunshine” paper onto the background.

Step 2: Next I opened the photo for the background, did my basic edits to the color, levels etc., and resized to fit the width of the page.

Step 3: Finally, I copied and pasted the photo to the top of the page (over the Sunshine paper), then I changed the blend mode to “Pin Light” and lowered the opacity a little (to about 89%).

That’s it!! If you experiment with different combinations of photos, papers, blend modes and opacities you can come up with limitless unique looking backgrounds!! Have fun :)
