PS Friday Tutorial Part One: Textured Papers

This is going to be a two parter- Part One tonight, and Part two with freebie tomorrow.
| am going to fall asleep writing this as I had bad insomnia last night and haven't slept in close to 40 hours. I am one of those people that require 8 hours a night to function. Ugh!
So, without further ado, textured papers! I have always loved the weave of Bazzill Basics papers, so here is how to make the digi-version :)
Start by making a new document 3600x3600, 300dpi & a transparent background. Fill this with your choice of color. Now, in the menu buttons up top pick "layer" and from the drop down menu select "new fill layer" then choose "pattern", Click on "ok " when the dialogue box pops up. Now select your pattern. For Bazzill style papers choose "Dark Coarse Weave". Now that you have your new layer, go to your layers palette in the bottom right of your screen. Make sure your pattern layer is selected, and in the drop down menu at the top of the palette select "overlay". Your paper will now have that woven texture. Play around with other textures to see what other looks you can create, and stop by tomorrow for more on this topic along with a freebie for more paper making fun.

I understand what you are going through with the lack of sleep. With me it is the other way around. Because of my disability, it is hard for me to get to sleep. I often don't get to sleep until 6 or 7 a.m. in the morning. So I can easily understand your condition although I have the opposite. Get some rest. I appreciate your caring and willingness to take this extra time to help us with various faction of scrapping. Remember, we are learning on your time schedule. Takes care of yourself, after all you have a lot of people who really cares for you and appreciate your goodness and kindness. Thanks for the paper pattern tutorial. Leavin LUV! XOXOXO
