Co-Ordinating Alphabets for Digital and Hybrid Scrapbooking Has Never Been Easier!


Customized Alphabet Letters Tutorial

Software: Photoshop CS3


Instructions:
The font I chose for my title is “Plantagenet Cherokee.” I typed the title out in 96pt to achieve the spacing I wanted.


I want the title to look like I cut it out of a nice textured paper, so I chose another paper from the same kit.



Make sure the paper is the layer directly above the title text. Clip the paper onto the text with Alt+Cltl+G.


The title has nice texture from the paper, but still looks a bit flat, so we need to add some blending effects. Right click on the text layer in the layer palette and choose Blending Options. I added a slight Drop Shadow and an Inner Glow.



To dress up the title a bit more I added a stamped element in the background.

Don’t hesitate to play with digital papers in the title of your next layout!

Wow....very cool! I hope to be able to copy your example soon as I love to scrapbook...digital and otherwise. That is, when I get time off from my business. I market other peoples websites....it is so much fun, although not as much as scrapbooking, to know that you help someones site get to the top of the search engines.
Thanks for listening to me ramble on.
