All these shapes are available in PSE and can be used as a template to put a scrap page together. I’ve done this page here using nothing but graphics available from the Graphics tab in PSE. The photo comes from StockSnap. Feel free to put your own interpretation on the template.
Font? That was an alpha from the kit. I usually do not use alphas because they are too much work, but this was a short word. I used a shadow.
It's really easy to create that type of effect on your own using any fat font.
(I assume she clipped the text to a background paper, then outlined it.)
In my example, I duplicated the word, moved the top layer over a few pixels to fatten it up - because the font wasn't fat enough for this purpose.
Merged the two layers and clipped a background paper to it. (You have to first simplify text to merge two text layers - however, you do not have to simplify text to clip background paper/photos to it )
Then I outlined the word. Didn't even have to select the text to use: Edit> Stroke/Outline
I do this myself instead of using ready-made alphas because when you have a lot of letters in your title, it's just easier to type the words and create the effect yourself.
Wow BillieJean, you are a true master of this. This has been a great challenge as, while I have been aware of the graphics in PSE, I haven't taken the time to really explore them all until now. I used several in this image which, while it pales in comparison with what you produce, I had fun playing around with.
Beautiful photo Sydney. I’m really glad you had fun doing this and enjoyed exploring the other things that PSE has to offer in its Graphics section. I love that ribbon bow you have used in the bottom left of your page I hadn’t noticed that among the graphics. I must use it myself sometime.
Sydney - you have done an outstanding job of creating your layout. Like you, I have not explored what PSE has to offer - maybe because I have my drive full of scrapbooking kits, but still - resources readily available need to be explored.
