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.
