Photo Mask Brush Video Tutorial

Photo mask brushes are one of my favorite things to create because they are so versatile! It’s no wonder they are a popular element in digital scrapbooking. By simply clipping a photo or paper to a brush and playing with the blending modes, you can change the look completely.

In this video we are going to become designers and create our own photo mask brush from scratch!

May 2015 Premier Top Pick

It was lovely to see so many pages embracing the sewing/handcrafted theme, and many of you created stunning quilt backgrounds using Christina Rambo’s Paper Quilting tutorial. There were also many beautiful versions of Jenifer Juris’ Mason Jar and Syndee Rogers-Nuckles’ Photo Mask Brush. But the page that just blew us away was KFM’s Ocean Waves using Jen White’s Filtered Reflected Gradient tutorial. Congratulations, KFM!
