I loved everything about this collection, the patterns, the flowers, the paper tears. The only thing I didn’t see was a tear for photos. I know I could have found one in another collection, but I decided to repurpose one of the paper tears from this club. It was really simple and turned out great, and it helped me stretch my scrapping budget just a little further. Let me show you how I did it!
First, I used a clipping mask to clip the photo to the paper tear embellishment.
Next, I applied a mask to the photo layer. With the mask active, I used the Brush tool with black to “paint away” the bits of photo that were covering the paper tear on the embellishment below. Remember, when using a mask, the color black will reveal the layer below and white will conceal it. Black reveals; white conceals. If you make a mistake, don’t panic! Use the “x” key as a shortcut to quickly switch between painting with black and white.
