I actually took time out of my genealogy project to try this one! LOVE IT!
Can’t wait to see what you created, Nanci. 😀
Thanks for another great tutorial. Always practical with clear and concise directions. You are a very good teacher.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Peg!
Can you turn a mask into a smart object? I can see there might be an issue with pixelating if the mask is resized a number of times for different pages. What I meant to ask is , “Can you turn a layer mask into smart object?” I know I can turn a mask into one.
Great question, Jane.
No, you cannot turn a layer mask into a smart object. But I can see what you are saying. You are afraid your crisp lines will pixelate. I don’t that that will be a problem unless you transform the mask many, many times. Simply changing the size of it many times before committing the change will not pixelate it. Does that help?
Thank you for always coming up with something new. I like grids, I’m going to have fun with this.
I love this tutorial, can’t wait to apply it. All your pages are inspiring. Thanks

So glad! I’d love to see what you come up with. 😀
Hi Jen, I don’t see all the masks used in this tutorial is not added in the download. I only see in the tutorial. I love all tutorials.
I’m happy to help, Radha. In the blogpost, click on the download link above the video. Unzip the folder. The layered PSD document is in the folder. That document is the one I’m using in the tutorial. Does that help?
Great lesson, I love that you include both PhotoShop & Elements instructions. Thanks!
