Quotation and technique
On another post earlier this year, Solitude, and a quotation this comment followed from Marilyn ...
so, in a round-a-bout fashion, this is a kind of tutorial as to how I achieve certain effects. Because I don't use PhotoShop like most everyone, and still hold onto my Corel PhotoImpactX3 for graphics play, I figure these notes can be interpreted in whatever digital programme you might use. Well I hope so at least. There will be similarly named tools for the same purpose.
#1 This example, I've used a free texture (linked at the bottom of this post).
This will need to be converted to object. I do that by right-click/ALL/CONVERT TO OBJECT and sliding it onto a new image/page to work with.
#2 BURN tool used randomly along some edges.
#3 Go ahead with the OBJECT PAINT ERASER and erase.
A very subtle SHADOW had been added to the post header quotation which seems to lift it from the page a touch and add a slight dimension.
And back to the original, that had sparked Marilyn's comment ... the 'tag'
