ArtPlay Studious Inspiration

Through The Grades | Miki Krueger

1. Frame With Brushes

Use Photoshop Brushes to frame and contain your blended photos in your digital scrapbooking layouts.

  • Mask your photos using a Layer Mask and Brushes or clip them to a FotoBlendz mask.
  • Load and stamp Photoshop Brushes with edges such as Notebook No. 2 to frame your photos.
  • Notice how this approach creates a Focal Point in your digital scrapbooking design.

2. Brushes as Masks

Use Photoshop Brushes as a mask to blend photos in your digital scrapbooking pages.

  • Load and stamp ArtPlay Palette Photoshop Brushes on a New Layer in your digital scrapbooking foundation.
  • Open your photo and move directly about the ArtPlay Palette brush layer in the Layers Panel.
  • Go to Layer> Create Clipping Mask and notice how your photo conforms to the shape of the underlying ArtPlay Palette brush layer

3. Align MultiMedia Elements

Use the artistry in your digital scrapbooking page to guide the placement of your embellishments.

  • Select an Artsy Paper or create your own using a Solid Paper and Transfers from the ArtPlay Palette to create an artsy digital scrapbooking foundation.
  • Mask your photo using a Layer Mask and Brushes or clip them to a FotoBlendz mask and apply Blending Modes to increase Visual Interest.
  • Align the Edges of the MultiMedia School No. 1 elements with similar Lines on your digital scrapbooking page.


Blending Mode Magic. Blending modes applied to photos create visual interest based on the interaction of the photo properties with the color, light and tone of the underlying layers. Consider placing elements and brushwork and elements beneath your photo layers to create different effects.
