Digital scrapbooking is, like its traditional form, an artistic way of displaying photographs and recording memories. Many people use them to document holidays, pets, the birth of a new baby and many other life events. Scrappers make whats known as a layout, or page, which is generally 12 x 12 inches. This is the most common size, however scrapbooks come in many other sizes so you can always find something to suit your needs.
Some of you have been asking me to make a tutorial explaining how I paint. I’ve found it actually difficult. I’ve never really sat and thought about how I do it. Either way, I’ve strung together a few sentences that are what you would call lousy tips.
- I usually open a new A4 or A3 canvas when starting a painting.
Always make sure you have enough room to put in further details if you want - don’t make your canvas too small. Adding the small details to a painting is the best part of all and it’s just completely ruined if your canvas is like 600 pixels wide.
- Work in layers.
It makes everything easier, especially when you want to redraw or correct mistakes.
- For painting in general, I use pretty much just one brush. 100% opacity/flow/hardness is what I would recommend. Blending colours together can be made easier by lowering the brush’s opacity, though. Because I use a tablet, it automatically sets the brush tool to pen pressure, which allows better control when painting.
- I create colour palettes by using the eyedropper tool and selecting colours (either from reference or the colour picker), and dabbing them on my canvas. This just makes it quicker to grab different shades later.
- If you’re using a brush with low opacity or with pen pressure enabled, your brush strokes are going to be different tones of colour. Instead of choosing each individual colour from the colour picker, I just eyedropper spots of colour next to where I’m intending to paint. I still have to go back to the colour picker when I want to change the hue, but it’s still a pretty handy thing to know.
- Instead of taking the time to blend every brush stroke, I can use the smudge tool to smooth out sections. For example, Hermione’s face:
- When painting hair, I use a standard brush set as small as 1px, and I just paint each strand over and over. I begin by blocking in with a medium shade, before adding the darker strands and then lighter. I use plain white to add in a few highlights here and there. It takes a while to finish a full head of hair, but the result looks cool as.
- To add further detail to skin, I use skin brushes that you can download here. I would recommend searching Deviantart for other various PS brushes, too.

This is a simple tutorial on how to get the retro polaroid coloring on your photo, one like I used today in my pictures…
- Open your image in Photoshop. Duplicate it once. Select the duplicate image on your layer palette and set the blending mode to Soft Light.
- Now, go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color. Choose a really dark blue. I use #070142. Set this Fill Layer to Exclusion.
- Then, go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels. Slide the black slider to the right a little bit to increase the intensity of the coloring. You can stop here if you already got the result you want. Or continue with the rest of the tutorial to see if you can get something a little bit more awesome.
- Add another Color Fill layer. Go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color. Choose a light orange. I use #de9b82. Set this Color Fill Layer to Soft Light with opacity of 75%. Again, you can choose to stop here.
- But if you decide to continue, go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color. Choose a light pink. The color code I use is #fed1eb. Then, set this Fill Layer to Soft Light with 50% opacity. You’ve got a nice polaroid effect already? If your answer is yes, then you can stop here. Otherwise, let’s continue to see if you can get a much better polaroid effect.
- Add another Color Fill Layer. Go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color. Select a dark blue. I use #070044. Set this Color Fill Layer to Exclusion, opacity 100%.
- Duplicate your original image. And bring this duplicate layer on top of all the layers. Set it to Soft Light. It should look awesome…
And because we are all lazy, I just have made the photoshop action for all of this… When you want to download it, just go on…
