Quick Tip—Journaling Overlay
by Jen White

Want to add journaling on top of a high contrast photo? Try this technique to give your album a little variety in the journaling department.

Here’s how:

  • Add some color to the journaling. Black or white won’t do. Try choosing a color from your scrapbook page—something middle of the road. I chose a plum color.
  • Next, in the Layers panel, with the journaling layer activated, cycle through the Blend Modes. Stop when you can see journaling in all areas of the photograph. It will create a nice “blended” look. I ended up using the Subtract Blend Mode.

I really like how the journaling on this page kinda sits in the background. It’s not taking up a bunch of real-estate on the page, but it’s very easy to locate and read.
