Adding Color and Texture to ScrapSimple WordArt
Tutorial created using Adobe Photoshop CS3 with Windows XP
Customizing ScrapSimple Word Art to coordinate with your page takes only a few simple steps!
I like to begin by entirely creating my layout and using the grayscale version of the word art for placement purposes.
Then we can go in and add some color and texture to the word art that coordinates and pulls the page together.
We are going to change the color and add texture to this word art title in one step. Begin by opening a background paper that is the texture and color that you desire and drag the word art onto the paper.
NOTE: If the color is not quite the right tone, it can be adjusted by selecting Image> Adjust> Hue/Saturation or Image> Adjust> Color Balance.
Using the Magic Wand Tool, select the black L. Then go to Select> Similar to select rest of the black letters. Then click onto the green background layer (on the Layers Palette) and perform a copy and paste. This will create a new layer with a green version of the word "Live!"
Then, on the Layers Palette, click and drag the new green version of "Live!" above the grayscale version.
Repeat the same steps as above to change the gray version of "Live!" to yellow.
I chose to leave the "like you mean it" layers gray because of all the gray tones in the photos. But feel free to adjust the colors and textures as you choose.
By double-clicking on the each of the layers, one at a time, we can add some drop shadows and inner shadows to add dimension. I added drop shadows to both "Live!" layers and an inner shadow to the "like you mean it" layer.

We helped you jumpstart your January and now it's time to re-JUNE-venate your focus on scrapbooking! Join us on the Scrap Girls Forum for "Re-JUNE-venate!" This is a game and challenge that focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little "speedbumps" of life. When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way.
A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from June 1-30. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require Forum participation, email responses or gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you.
Those who complete all the required tasks and submit or post required participation by 11:59pm MDT on June 30th will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete all the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $5 Gift Certificates. Each person who completes a layout will be entered – once for each completed challenge page- into a drawing for one of three $3 Gift Certificates.
For complete details, visit the Monthly Forum Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
