CTM Shelly here. Today I’m going to show you how to make regular JPEG papers look like
vellum. This is one of my favorite techniques taught to me by a wonderful scrappy friend.
First you need to make the paper the size you want it. By either clipping a paper to part of a template, or re size and shape the way you want. After that you want to duplicate the layer.
∼After that select the bottom of the 2 duplicate layers and go to filter, then blur, and click the Gaussian blur.
∼Then still on the bottom of the 2 layers remove color . Either with (shift+ctrl +u) or
Enhance, adjust color, remove color.
∼ After that delete the 2nd layer.
∼Then on the remaining layer change the opacity to whatever you want.
Here I have it set to 60%. Play around with it til you get the effect you want.
Tada! The awesome see thru effect is complete.
Here is my finished layout using #Selfie and Template Crazy Vol. 13
This was my first time making a tut so I hope I explained it properly. If you have any questions drop them below in the comments This was done in PSE 13.
