Mad About Masks

I'm mad about clipping masks these days!

I used one of the Brayered Masks for this image, but I embellished it further with brushes. It's easy, peasy. See The Tut Here!

Quick tips:You can use a Photoshop brush directly on the mask. Stamp in black to extend the mask. Stamp in white to subtract from the mask—for instance to put script or a pattern inside the mask. If you are using overlays, place the overlay above the mask, place where you want. Erase or use a layer mask in areas you don't want. When you are happy with the results, merge the overlay with the mask.

I debated a lot about whether to embellish all of the blocks, but I always prefer to give you the maximum flexibility with products. How much and where you choose to embellish will have a lot to do with how much your image extends beyond the mask. If it doesn't extend far it will be difficult to use the extra embellishments outside the mask. You could however embellish inside the mask using any number of brushes or overlays. Script, grunge, paint strokes, flourishes. There are so many options! I really love putting that creative power in your hands.
