Creative Team Member, Fiona, shares a Holiday Elements tutorial conducted in Adobe Photoshop.

Note that this tutorial can also be completed in Adobe Photoshop Elements.

Holiday Elements Tutorial

In this tutorial I have used a variety of Elements from the store to create the title page for last year’s December Daily Album.

I started with a photograph of Neve (my granddaughter); you can see it’s not a brilliant capture but Neve’s hands are in the perfect position for my page.

I chose paper from ArtPlay Palette Glacial as my background and then extracted the figure by using Inverted Masking Technique. See more on extractions here.

I then started adding various branches, berries and leaves from a selection of ArtPlay Palettes and experimented with different compositions, playing about with the size of the berries and angle of the foliage.

Once I was happy with the positioning of the foliage, I added a Star Charm from MultiMedia Stars No. 2, Bells from ArtPlay Palette Retro Holiday and paper from MultiMedia Banners for the title work.
