Create wonderful texture for scrapbook papers with Photoshop’s fiber filter.
Start with foreground/background colors set to default for your first layer
filter > render clouds
(The fiber filter must have something on the layer before it is applied.)
Now apply the fiber filter
filter > render > fibers
Try a variance of 37 and a strength of 37
Create a new layer and fill it with color.
filter > render > fibers (variance of 7 and strength of 8. Try clicking the randomize button.)
Run through the blend modes – try hard light and reduce the opacity > merge the two layers.
Now you have a texture layer that can be used with other scrapbook papers to create depth.
The fun is only starting! Get out your grunge brushes and add another layer. Continue adding more texture, gradient, and/or pattern layers. Don’t forget to try different blend modes out on each layer. Keep going until you get something you really like.
I hope this information gives you some ideas for creating texture layers for your papers. More detailed information and videos can be found at Hummie’s World. See you in Designer Class!
