Tips From The Pros

Halloween

Article written using Adobe Photoshop CS5 with Windows 7

Halloween is such a fun time of year for all ages! When I take pictures, I always try to capture not only the colorful costumes, but the home/outdoor decor and special treats, too. It’s all part of what makes Halloween memorable.

This past year, our children received very pretty black-cat suckers at a Halloween party, and I photographed my son holding his up close for the camera. He also wanted to pose next to our skeleton candy bowl holder that we leave out on our step while we go out trick-or-treating together as a family.

I always have fun with my Halloween layouts – plus our Scrap Girls designers include fun and whimsical elements in their collections. Today, I want to share a tip with you that I learned recently.

Occasionally when using a pattern overlay style such as Brandy Murry's ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Chevron Super Biggie 8501, I wish a different area of pattern would show. Here’s the treat: This is easy to do!

  1. After applying the style to your object, press the little fx symbol at the bottom of the Layers Palette and choose Pattern Overlay from the flyout menu.

  2. Uncheck the "Link with Layer" box.

  3. With the larger box still open, left-click and drag on the object and watch the pattern slide around until it is exactly where you need it.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial Screenshot: Layer styles options in Photoshop.

As Halloween draws near, see what you can think up to photograph! Dig into your digital scrapbooking stash and see what you have to complement those awesome pictures. Then be sure to share your pages with us in the Scrap Girls Gallery!
