This is the time for our monthly collab kit freebie. There’s a sad news, though. We miss one of our member : Mamaecha of Studio Mamaecha. Due to her personal reason, she’s taking a leave from scrapbooking (visit her blog for her statements). I’m not going to say that she’s retired, I’m still hoping that one day she will be in this track again… ;-p. She’s the one who introduced me to digital scrapbooking, and I admire her works very much.
This month’s collab is hosted by Any of Tritya Creations. She pick SWEET CHILDHOOD as our theme, and after so many bright colors in our previous collabs, finally we have soft colors this time.. ;-p.
Take a look at these previews:
This is my Sweet Childhood part:
And also because of internet problem, I tried not to put many elements in my kit to avoid big size of the files (sorry for that). I find a hard time to upload it to hosting site. So feel free to alter the color of all the elements to a matching color of your layouts. I did it with the string in my layout above.
If you don’t know how to change the color, here’s an easy tips (I’m using PS CS2):
- open the file, make a duplicate of it (to avoid the change the original file). Desature the file (ctrl + shift + U)
- Pick the matching color using eyedropper tool, then choose Hue/Saturation (ctrl + U), check the colorize option. Adjust the color by moving the saturation and lightness bar until you get the right color you want. Don’t change the hue to avoid the changes of the color tone.
- Adjust the level (ctrl + L) to get the realistic affect of the object.
