Paperpack 2 and a little tut


sorry, link has been removed!
Here's the seccond part of It's Magic, 5 more papers.
Someone asked me how I make my papers. It's hard to explain in simple words, but I'll show you one little trick. I use Photoshop, create 2 layers and use the Blending Mode 'overlay'.

Step 1: take a picture of a nice texture and resize it to 3600x3600 pixels (you may need to chop some bits off to make a square)

-----------------------------------------------------------
Step 2: add another layer, color it the way you want to and put this layer UNDER the texture layer

----------------------------------------------------------
Step 3: This is the trick! Select the texture-layer, and change the Blending Mode to 'overlay'

----------------------------------------------------------
Step 4: You paper should look something like this, the texture layer has the same color as the color-layer. Now you can finish your paper with brushes, gradients, borders or some more textures!
