Hi Sweet Shoppers! Lex here to share something I’ve been playing with recently: clipping masks! No, not the typical building blocks of templates or shapes shown here by Traci, but something a little different. I’m having SO. MUCH. FUN with them! *insert big, googly eyes*
2. Another technique I love to do: LAYER several items into one clipping mask! I had clipped my photo and several background papers together in one mask. If you understand the concept of layer masks, you can add one to each layer and “erase” parts of them, generating an image with a unique background.
3. This is my favorite thing to do: I’ve layered several background papers and my photo to one clipping mask, and play around with various blend modes to get different looks. Once I’m satisfied with the look, I merge all the layers together in the mask and finish scrapping my layout.
Here’s my finished layout:
If you have other techniques with clipping masks you like to use, let me know! I’m always on the lookout for other ways to play around with masks Happy scrapping!
