Using Templates in Paint Shop Pro

Using Templates in PSP

by Maggie Lamarre, Creative Team Member

Templates are everywhere now, they are a very easy way to create lay outs.
There are several ways you can make them your own.
You can change the rotation and the angles, you can add more to the template.

Supply use
Rikki Scrap kit Transporting kit
Template by Sally Keller April contest
Nancy Comelab Leather flower @MDM
Photo prongs Flourish Breeze

Let's begin

I change the rotation of the template to fit the paper as a mat on a diagonal.

Change the journaling spot made it smaller, and change the size of the pictures to fit.

In Paint Shop pro there are no clipping mask the work around is to select the item by going into
select, then float then insert into the layer.
Repeat teh process for each layer.

Insert lay out here

Have fun create your ARt,
