    Love it and thank you very much. I have one question on Part 1. At the end of the tape you say to add the level layer, but then how do you attach it. Yours disappears. My level is still in my layers panel.
    Thank you

      Hi Bonnie! I’m glad you like the sketch tutorial. If you look at your layers panel, the Levels layer will still be there. What disappears is the Levels adjustment box/options. I hope that clears up the confusion. If not, let me know. Thanks for your question. If you had it, others did too, I’m sure!

    Thanks Karen! I had a First Day Of Kindergarten pic of my DGD which cried out for this effect. I know we had a tutorial on it before but you saved me having to dig around.
