Hi.

Welcome to my blog! I write, and take photos, and use Photoshop every day. I love learning and surprises and my sweet family and being a transplanted southerner.

Photoshop Friday Summer #1: Extract a Pattern

Happy Photoshop Phriday and the first Friday in June! Can you believe it? My kids get out of school on MONDAY, and the whole summer stretches ahead of us, filled with possibilities.  

One possibility for today, however, is to grab my brand-new Photoshop Friday Summer Baker's Dozen series, which will keep you learning through my weekly tutorials throughout the entire summer - all 13 weeks between now and the end of August!  

With the discount you'll receive, each tutorial, with its video lesson, Photoshop template, downloadable/printable PDF file, and extra goodies is only a couple bucks each! Go check out the Photoshop Friday Summer Baker's Dozen right here:

Today's tutorial features the GORGEOUS Traditions collection from Carta Bella (designed by our very own talented Samantha Walker), and I walk you through the steps to extract a pattern from a patterned paper to use as a sticker or an overlay on your layout!  

Here's my take on the technique, with the extracted piece in the top left corner of the photo block:
