Mary those Instant Effects are very cool. I would like to learn that too. I have joined you and Colin, and started today with the Labs. I think they are going to teach me a ton. And If I cant have a ton of money, then I’ll gladly take a ton of knowledge any day.
I started at the start, with Lab 5-9. Where I learned the following:
1) how to make multicolored dots for background paper. I learned about the Brush Variance Pallet and used Color Blend I think at 70%, then used a blend mode (“Burn” at 63% opacity) on the dots once they were on the background I chose for them.
2) Text Background Paper became my main subject. I had wanted to put a photo on but didnt want to cover up the “I” part (“I love you”).
3)Making eyelets and eyelet ribbon was quite enjoyable and a good practice for me with the magic wand and getting a better idea about inverting selections.
