Happy 2nd Birthday MouseScrappers!!! Blog Hop and a Disney Digital Scrapbooking Freebie and Tutorial for making Mickey Heads!

My favorite site is having a birthday!  MouseScrappers is 2 years old and we're celebrating with a very special blog hop :)

I have a super fun and useful freebie for you as my part of the blog hop!  And a little tutorial on how to use it :)

It's a Mickey Head Maker - similar to my Disney Alpha Maker - for you to use.  Use it to make Mickey Heads that will match the other items that you've picked up on this blog train.  You can make over 60 different mickey heads in lots of different combinations!!!  (In a psd file for photoshop users or in separate png files for all other programs so everyone can use it.)

Here's a little tutorial on how to make some of your own Mickey Heads using this set:

First, in photoshop, it is super easy.  Just open up the psd file in photoshop (elements or cs - it doesn't matter) and simply click on and off the eyeballs in the layers side menu to choose which layers you want showing!  In this picture below, you can see that I've got the Silver Outline eyeball on as well as the red fill layer, polkadots, and crumpled layer.

Now just go to Layer, Merge Visible and it's ready to be moved onto your scrapbook page!  If you want to make another one, just undo the Merge Visible and start again!!  How easy peasy is that??

In all other programs, you can simply open what you want to be the bottom layer and then drag other layers on top of it.  It's the same idea, you just need to decide which layers you want and put them on top of each other.  Then put them all together so you can put it on your page!  **The only exception to this is the crumpled layer and the striped layer.  They need to be blended with your base layer.  (This is already done for you in the photoshop psd file.)  In other programs, you will need to change the opacity or blend it to have it look right and take the color of the base layer.

Hope you love it and it helps you create just the right Mickey Head for that special disney scrapbooking page!!!
