I want to start off this post with a disclaimer–I am completely self-taught as far as Photoshop is concerned so the way I do things might not be the “right way,” but it’s the way that I managed to figure it out, so it works for me. If anyone knows a quicker way to do something–by all means show me the way and leave me a comment! My other disclaimer–this is my first tutorial type video. I hope it explains everything well, and isn’t too confusing or too fast. I am still disappointed with the quality of it….I can’t quite figure out how to change that or what I did wrong. (I am thinking it might have something to do with the SD/HD settings so I am going to attempt to fix it.) But I knew a lot of you were waiting for this so I have posted it anyway. If you don’t enlarge it, it looks much better.
In my Week One layout last week I took the time to recolor ALL of the elements I used to match the Seafoam kit. (One of the HUGE plusses of digital scrapping!) I received a lot of comments and emails asking me how I did it, so I thought making a little video would help those of you that are interested in accomplishing the same thing.
Sometimes seeing a video on a blog almost stresses me out–I am often in a hurry, and I don’t necessarily have the time or desire to watch one….so if you are like me just know this…there are literally only two menu buttons I use to get this to work–the eyedropper (to sample color) and the paint bucket (to recolor whatever it is I am looking to recolor). BOOM. That’s it. That’s how easy it is. I say all of this because I swear I saw a tutorial like his on another website once and I never watched the video–finally figuring it out how to do it by accident on my own. If I had known how to do this last year—wow. Let’s just say I would have had a lot more fun with my pages! I really thought it was more complicated, and if someone would have just written that it was two steps I most likely would have taken the time to watch the video…..
Are there any other techniques you have seen in my pages that you have wanted to learn?
Please let me know and I will put together another tutorial. I hope to make this a weekly, or bi-weekly series on the blog if there is enough interest. Like I have said before, I am a huge fan of digital scrapbooking and I really enjoy showing others how it all works and what fun they can have with it.
Here’s to a great week! I have been working more on my baby album for Holly so some more peeks at that to come up soon!
