    This family history website image features the Paper Strips script.  These images are to attract attention to what might otherwise be a stuffy information-only site.  The script worked best for me with a 3600×3660 blank image.  Then it was a simple matter of picking papers.  While I picked many contrasting papers, they are then re-picked by the script at random so some may not be selected and some repeat which is best in the end.  As it’s all very busy I placed them on a darker mottled version of my website background which forms the outer frame.  Also, to differentiate between strips I added a bevel so the overlap could be seen better before adding a corner punch and drop shadow.  It may be a good idea to rotate the row 180 degrees and then the drop shadow can show on the strips.

    Other scripts in use: Distressed Edge (on the frame to make a hole in my website page look); also, the brushes Corner Punch A was used easily to add interest to the corner.  As for the strips… they are from papers created with Dots & Diamonds, Filligrane, Gingham & Argyle, Parallel Lines, Plaid 2, Stripes#1… the fun never stops.

    Very nice, and educational.  I’m have an elderly (ancient) Irish cousin who signs his emails “slan” …now I know how to pronounce it!  I wish I were a Dowling!

    I have a few ‘Honorary’ Dowlings in other parts of the world.
