Hello everyone! Happy Spring!
Today I am going to explain how to change the color of a ribbon or similar items in Photoshop.
I have released my Happy Jade collection of Ribbons, Tags and Arrows. All of which are in shades of Jade or more popularly - Mint Green! This is great for the ever popular color of spring, but what if you want to other colors?
Well, here is my Photoshop Tutorial on how to change the color of ribbons and other items.
In your layers palette you will see your images that you have imported.
•Double-click on the layer that you want to change
The Layers options window will appear.
• Click on Color Overlay towards the bottom of the left hand side.
• Click on the color "normal" drop down menu and change to Overlay
Selecting Overlay allows the different shades of color to show through.
• Click on the red color box to select the color you want.
• Click OK
The pictures do not match up perfectly, but you should be able to get the gists of the tutorial :)

interNational Scrapbook Day!
I hope that you will all make it over to Design House Digital today and check out all of the awesome digital scrapbooking sales and tutorials going on.
Next, I have to apologize to all of you forhttp://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=21964334#editor/target=post;postID=4088335123843177954 telling you that I would deliver freebies all last week and I failed! :(
For now here is one very grungy overlay for free.
I used this grungy overlay on my motorcycle collection.
Scrapbook Overlay Tutorial for color change.If you look closely you will notice that there is some red in this overlay. Since the file is a PNG you will not be able to change certain brushes, just the entire overlay itself.
If you have Photoshop this is a very easy process.
With the overlay opened in Photoshop you will see it on it's own layer.
Double click on the image icon in the layer. The Layer Style pop up box will open.
Click on Color Overlay in the bottom left hand corner.
The overlay should change to red, which is the standard color to be changed to. (yours may be different)
Click on the color box and select the color you would like in that panel.
Click Ok when you are done
And there you go!
You can also play with the Blend Mode to change the transparency and other fun things.
Hope this helps you!

Tracking your Run can be fun and beneficial.
I am sure that there are many different apps out there to use while you are running. My brother introduced to me to STRAVA and I Love it! It uses the GPS on my phone to track my run and it literally tracks every little turn.
It also shows you the distance and the amount of time it took you to complete a mile.
One other great feature is that you can follow people on STRAVA and see what they are doing and where. This great for motivation and to find new runs/trails to explore.
|As you can see I am just a beginner!|
Right now I am getting ready for a thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5K. Way to get me moving forward and staying at my easy 2 miles. :)
