Hey guys, here’s a new download, Photo Layouts Part 11! There are half a dozen layouts in 2 sizes (600px and 900px). Unlike my previous photo templates, each of these six layouts have different frame styles and orientations. The caption paper backgrounds and transparent “circle stickers” tie this theme together. I actually crumpled a sheet of paper, flattened it out, tore it into a pieces, and then scanned them all in. I used that Quick Mask technique I learned last week to isolate each piece and they turned out pretty well! :)
If you’ve never worked with my photo layouts before, you can get a general idea of how they work in this screencast. You might also want to check out some examples on Sister Magazine for inspiration — they’re using these very layouts in this blog post (Thanks, Thea!). And, if you’re not a member and you want to try them out, you can download a free set here.
The paper pieces that are included in the layouts are images. However, if you want to mix it up a little, you’ll find 7 Photoshop brushes in the download, as well. The brushes work best when applied to a new layer using black “paint”.
