You may have seen the announcement of the new Studio Calico Creative Team on the blog. A few new faces mixed in with returning designers. I'm happy to see some of my favorite paper crafters on the team. You'll also notice a list of contributing designers which is where I'll be for 2015.
What does that mean? More time to explore and create on my own terms. That was the biggest reason I decided to apply for this part of the team. Getting a box of goodies each month and having to create a set amount of layouts sounds like a dream job and it is for the most part but after 7 straight years, a change was necessary.
This is a super positive change and I'm looking forward to having more time to invest in taking some classes and finishing a few projects for the LLP shop . I really want to take this year to polish up my skills as a working artist/illustrator/graphic designer.
Yay for change!
Okay so I wanted to do a quick tutorial on how I added gold foil digitally onto a photo.
First, you'll need a nice gold foil image. The image I'm using can be found here along with some other gold textures.
Easy peasy! Also works great on digital stamps like this one from Studio Calico's .
There is another way to apply gold foil digitally and that's using the clipping mask option in the Layers menu. Bother are simple ways of adding a little shine to your paper crafting.
