Photoshop Friday! Create Pinked Edges

Hi there! Happy Photoshop Friday! In today’s video tutorial, I’ll show you how to create your own Photoshop brush using a Custom Shape. Then we’ll apply that as a pinked edge on a layout! You can even download the template I use in today’s video. Here’s what the template looks like (with a couple of goodies from my friends at Echo Park and Nisa Fiin):

Happy 12.12.12!

For the last time this century, we have a very auspicious triple date today! Luck will change, stars will align, the universe will smile on us.

And to get that started, we’ve cooked up a great deal on one of my very favorite projects this year - Photohsop Friday 2012! Every Friday this year (and for the next 3 weeks), I’ve created an awesome video tutorial showing a specific technique in Photoshop, and tossed in a digital scrapbook template, AND a printable PDF showing 6 ways to use the technique. The year-long subscription included a GIANT (350MB) kit of digital items (papers, brushes, embellishments) that can be used in all these templates and beyond.

At the beginning of the year, this collection of awesomeness was $70.

Now that we are winding down what has been a year full of change for me, and in honor of this Day of the Smiling Universe, I’m putting the 2012 Photoshop Friday on sale for $24.

With 52 tutorials, templates, that is basically .50 a lesson, even without the 52 templates to help you complete the pages right along with me. Merry and bright? Oh, I think so.

Photoshop Friday 2012 disappears on December 31. It might resurface broken up and in other formats, we’ll see. 

But this is the last opportunity to grab this screaming deal, that will help YOU:

  • get more done
  • learn a whole lot of Photoshop, and
  • feed your digital supply collecting habit (ahem)

All in one shot. Seriously good.

Here is a little preview of some of the (52!) pages you can make:

You can purchase the entire Photoshop Friday tutorial set for instant, permanent access, OR you can tell someone you really, really love them by grabbing the gift version of Photoshop Friday!

FREE HOLIDAY TEMPLATE

AND just because the universe is smiling on YOU particularly for reading this far, how about a FREE HOLIDAY GIFT? I’ve created a free template to celebrate the season, and here it is:

Click here to download the template in a .zip file.

Pretty nice, no? I would love to see a linkback here, or in Pinterest (my board or the JS.com board), or on our Facebook page when you complete a layout with this template!

(If you aren’t sure how a template works, consider registering for my new upcoming digital scrapbooking class called Photoshop 1 for Digital Scrapbooking. You’ll love it!)
