Overlapping tutorial

Hey there KCB fans! Have you ever wanted to overlap parts of an element with another but just can't figure out how to do it cleanly? Then maybe this little tutorial on how I do it will help you out. Personally I use PSP, but this tutorial isn't really program specific so no matter what you use - you should still be able to come away from this tutorial with a better idea of how to overlap. Here it goes!

1- First I picked out a journaling mat and string element that I wanted to overlap.

2- Next I duplicated the string layer. (I right clicked on the string layer and selected "Duplicate") This will give me one to erase and one to stay whole.

3- Now I have to move the duplicated string layer to be beneath the journaling mat layer. It's also a good idea to link these two string layers so that they can be moved while keeping them exactly above one another.

4- Now I can select the top string layer and start erasing the parts that I want to have appear to be under the journaling mat.

5- As you can see - the part that I erased looks nice and clean, this is because of the string layer that is positioned beneath the journaling mat. Just remember to add shadows to the bottom string layer, not the top ;)

And that's it. Feel free to ask any questions you might have! And I hope that helps you with overlaping elements on your next layout!

Back to school!

Hi There! Shannon bringing you a late night Hybrid post! Nothing like running out of ink, in a small town and having to rush to the nearest city to get more, LOL! But here I am tonight ready to post! :)
 So here is the reality...summer here is pretty much over, the temperatures are falling, the rain has set in again and it's mid August..sigh..which means that school is about to start up again! For us here, my little girl will be starting playschool, her last year before she starts kindergarten next fall which means this year there will be more projects coming home, more field trips and a preschool grad...*insert tears here* For my hybrid project today I decided to make Jade her very own personalized crayon box! I used Kristin's kit ~Bookworm~ which is SUPER cute, and if you don't already have it, definitely grab it!

And here is the kit!

Hope you have a great night!
