on her blog. However, you can also duplicate the look with digital papers and a photo-editing program like Photoshop Elements. Here's how to make it work in just a few easy steps:
Step 1: Open up a 12x12 canvas in your program. Resize a photo to 12x12 on this canvas and then place a painted digital paper on top of it (I used a paper from my Be You digital kit.)
Step 2: Choose a bulky font (I used Lemondrop) and type your message on a new layer. I used a quote from one of my favorite books -- it's one that always reminds me of the beautiful colors of fall.
Step 3: Use the Magic Wand Tool to select one of the letters in your text. Right click and select "similar." This will select the rest of the text.
Step 4: With the text still selected, make sure your painted paper layer is the active layer. Choose "Delete" on your keyboard. This will delete the spaces underneath your alpha layer, creating a cutout text look. Follow up by deleting the entire text layer.
