KnittinJen is working her way through the CT kids, using them as inspiration for mini-kits. We’ve seen the mini for Luke and Chawndelle, and today comes Katie. My daughter! Katie is my middle. She loves purple. She likes to dance. She is a good singer. She doesn’t like housework (who does?!). She is a little sassy four-year-old, usually with smudged cheeks, tangled hair, and glasses, and I love her soooo much! The little blond ballerina with the glasses is her absolute favorite thing in this kit. Gee…I wonder why?
here’s how I made the photo fade on this page in PSE:
1. layer two copies of the photo on one layer of paper.
2. click the elliptical marquee tool and set the feather up to 200
3. Create a shape just cutting off the corners and edges of the bottom photo. I had to start way off the edge of the LO.
4. do the same with the top photo, but do it just around the face. In my layers palette I now have a paper, with an oval picture of her whole body on top, and then on the very top layer all I can see is the close up of her face. I hope that helps!
