As a token of my appreciation I am giving you two printable files with labels and journaling tags (you can punch out the tags with a 2″ circle punch):

Photoshop Elements Tip – Adding A Hand Drawn Element
Here is how I added the hand-drawn flowers to my tags:
- Draw your elements with a black marker on a plain white paper.
- Scan your element in high resolution.
- Open the scanned file in Photoshop Elements.
- Press Ctrl+L or Command+L and tweak your levels, so the white is bright white and the black is pitch black.
- You can also use the eye-drop tool on the Levels Menu.
- Open a new layer beneath your scanned elements.
- With the Quick Selection tool select all the white areas and press Delete. Make sure you are working on the scanned elements’ layer. The checkerboard pattern means this part is transparent.
- Save the file as a PNG file – that will keep the transparency attributes.
- With the rectangle selection tool select the element you want to use and then press on the Move tool.
- Open the file you wish to insert the hand drawn element to, drag and drop your hand drawn element into the file you have just opened. Re-size as needed.
[Due to the holiday – and my limited access to my husband’s MAC… – there will not be a Creativity Prompt this week, but I have included the tutorial above, enjoy! ]
