It's the middle of the summer here where I live.
I wonder what the weather is like where you are?
all of us on the Gecko Galz
Design Team have been making magic with
the new summer products at the
Here are some things that I made.
This last one was fun and super-duper easy to make.
I used Photoshop Elements 13 to create it digitally;
The background paper is from the
Summer Picnic Paper Pak
I extracted both girls from one of the Pretty In Pink collage sheet.
I also extracted the cupcake from the same collage sheet
and coloured the maraschino cherry red.
I drew on a stem with a brush, 'cus the stem is really hard to extract, being so small.
Then I duplicated the cupcake and cherry and put one by the
word art on the bottom and one in the front girl's hand.
The lovely "kindness" word art is from one of the Scripted Collage sheets.
I cropped it out, then
I simply placed it where I wanted it and changed the blending ode to Multiply.
That made it transparent!
That always works if it is just black words or image on white paper.
The bottom word art is just text I wrote, using the text tool,
and I placed it on a piece of white cardstock that I coloured
to match the blue in the background paper.
You can use the eyedropper tool and the paint bucket to do that.
I added a stroke to the blue paper, matching the orange on the background paper.
I used the eyedropper tool for that as well.
I placed a border by Tracy Martin over top and some confetti by Created By Jill
in front of the background paper.
I had to duplicate to have enough to cover.
finally, I flattened the layers and added a black stroke to the whole thing.
That would be it!
