I'm super excited to host another challenge this week! I know it's a busy week for those of us in the states (with the Thanksgiving holiday and Black Friday) but hopefully you all can join me :)
I'm not big on the Thanksgiving holiday. It's just hard to spend a whole day thinking about being thankful when you're supposed to be spending your day with family and half of my family is dead...
But I actually do work hard in my life to find things to be thankful for. And one thing I am VERY thankful for is scrapbooking. It is my hobby, and joy, and therapy! I truly love it and love learning new techniques and styles. Lately, I have fallen in love with photomasks! Photomasks are just a black/gray shape that you clip your photo to - giving your photo that same shape. I think they are super fun and can be really useful to highlight your photo or crop someone or something out with a cool look to it.
So this week, I'm keeping it super simple. The only rule is to use a photomask on your layout and I've even made a bunch of Disney masks for you to use! Join me over at MouseScrappers here for the challenge.
Here are the Disney masks I've made for you:
Hope you like them and give them a try!
Some instructions for clipping your photo to the photomask:
In Photoshop Elements, put the photo layer on top of the photomask layer in the layer list. Then hit CTL-G.
In Photoshop CS, put the photo layer on top of the photomask layer in the layer list. Then hit CTL-ALT-G.
Your Prize Package if you complete the challenge is this Mickey's Ice Cream Kit I made:
Hope you like the masks and join me in the challenge at MouseScrappers!
