The background of this layout uses 12x12 Soft Flowers designer paper in Always Artichoke. I used the Vintage Overlays brush set to put a faint pattern on the edges of the layout. This layout is just beautiful and I'd like to tell you about a few things on it that I've never tried before with the MDS software. First is the MEGA button that I used on the background. I increased the size of the button to 11x11. Now, it does pixelate (distort) the image of the button, but I wanted something a little fuzzy and cute looking, so I'm fine with it being distorted. The regular size of the button is shown up in the middle of the satin ribbon - so it's increased vastly which is so cool!
Second - I finally figured out how to make a paper that looks like vellum with MDS. I made my vellum with a punch in MDS and shown on the left is the Punch Panel on the MDS software.
- Step 1 - I put a matte on the punched image. I altered it so it was a white matte and then I made the thickness to size 4.
- Step 2 - I put a black shadow on the image. I made it 75% filled.
- Step 3 - I changed the colour of the paper to "going grey"
- Step 4 - I set the opacity of the image to 40% making it 40% see-though.
And - that's it. I hope that was easy enough for you. Please let me know if you would like to see more tips on using the MDS software.
Thanks for stopping by - Have a wonderful day! Alesha
