Extractions are a great way to create unique ephemera and photo overlays for your layouts. I think it’s really fun to scan or photograph objects + papers I love and then include them in my scrapbook pages. The Pen Tool in Photoshop is my favorite way to make extractions. Once I have my object selected, I can just delete the background and save the image as a png. Today’s tutorial covers the Pen Tool basics–I hope you find it useful, especially for your art journal and vacation pages!
