How to Give Your Title a Reflection

When I do digital scrapbook layouts these days I rarely use pre-made alphas. I find that there are so many great fonts that I can use with my Photoshop Elements type tool. And more importantly there are so many great techniques I can apply to them that will give an extra edge to my title.

One thing that I love to do is to give my title a reflection.

There are a couple of ways to do this and in my Step by Step Digital Scrapbook Mentoring Program I teach both a simple and a more complex approach. But if you’ve never tried it, I thought this snippet from one of the Step by Step Digital Scrapbook eClasses might be useful.

We join the eClass just after cutting our title out of a piece of patterned paper.

I hope you enjoyed the video. As you would have gathered, this is just an excerpt from the eClass which also teaches a bunch of other techniques and shows you how to use them in your own digital scrapbook layouts.

If you’d like to know more about digital scrapbooking and how to get started yourself, just click over to Step by Step Digital Scrapbook and check out the free getting started info and videos. It’s been set up especially for beginners.

And if you would like some one on one coaching from me, just click on the Mentoring Program links throughout the site and you can find out more about how it works and what you get.
