• Mix-Matched Alphas in Photoshop and PSE

    Do you have a favorite alphabet set? If you like the style of one set, but the colors of another kit, you can use patterned paper to change the alpha set. Here’s how:

    Open the alphabet letter and the pattern paper images you’d like to use.
    Get the Move tool and drag the patterned paper onto the alphabet letter document.
    Position the patterned paper one space above the alpha in the Layers Panel.
    Hold the Alt key (Mac: Opt key) and click between the paper and the alpha in the Layers panel.
    This action covers the alphabet letter with the patterned paper.
    Press Ctrl E (Mac: Cmd E) to merge the patterned paper and the alphabet letter together.

    Now get the Move tool and drag the letter onto your scrapbook page.
    Repeat the process with the remaining letters.

    By using these simple steps, you’ll be able to use your scrapbook supplies creatively to get the look you want.
