1. Brush Extension

Extend your photo artistry or scrapbooking design using ArtPlay Palette Brushes.

  • Apply a sketch effect to your photo and blend using the FotoBlendz clipping masks.
  • Stamp ArtPlay Palette Brushes on New Layers above or below the image layer in the Layers Panel.
  • Notice how this technique extends the image and leads the eye from one side of the layout to the other.

Soften the effect of Frame elements via masking and/or Blending Modes.

  • Apply a Blending Mode such as Overlay, Soft Light or Color Burn from the top of the Layers Panel.
  • Adjust the Opacity and/or Hue/Saturation of the Frame layer as preferred.
  • Blend a Frame element by using a Layer Mask and Brushes to mask areas.
