How To Make A Collage Paper Background


Technique Tuesday

I really like the look of torn paper on a format.  In tutorial I’m going to offer you 2 totally different choices for creating this look by yourself layouts.  And on this tutorial I’m going to go over a couple of methods to do that and present you a couple of issues I created.

For this we’ll be utilizing the ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Life’s Journey Torn Paper

These are a smaller dimension paper templates which are excellent for scraps of paper or photographs. To make use of them you’ll both open the .png recordsdata or the .psd model and produce the merchandise you paper over the black tear layer

Utilizing your clipping masks connect the paper to the masks.  Now for a extra reasonable look you may also change the colour of the torn layer.  It may be modified to a shade that’s near your paper (in case your utilizing a stable one) or to a cream shade.  I did this by including a brand new fill layer over the tear layer, after which alter the layer mode on the colour fill layer

You may as well use these masks to create a torn picture as present beneath

The following torn masks is the ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Life’s Journey Torn Masks

These masks are available two choices, one with creases and distressing Within the masks and one with stable masks.

Right here’s a couple of methods I’ve used these masks to create paper.  First this gray and tan paper

I positioned the black masks excessive of my tan paper.  This tan paper had the middle distressing already in it.  So as soon as I clipped my gray damask paper to the clipping masks, I then began adjusting the layer mode on the masks layer.  I lastly settled on Darker Colour.  This allowed the distressing within the paper beneath to indicate by the masks, and in addition allowed among the brown tones to additionally give the paper an aged look.

The following paper is the pink and tan damask paper

For this paper I really used 2 clipping masks.  The primary clipping masks I hooked up a paper with journaling on it.  I then modified the mode of that masks to paint burn, and adjusted the opacity/fill.  This made the journal paper mix into the background paper.  Then I used one other masks on high of that one, and added the pink damask paper.  I saved the mixing mode of that layer to regular.

I hope this provides you some concepts on other ways to make use of the masks.  The primary factor to remember when working with them is mixing modes in case your buddy. And to experiment.
