Hi everyone! Everyone did such an awesome job last month, I can't wait to see what you all come up with this month!

This month I have the following challenge:

http://girlboheme.com/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/Nashville.jpg

Use the Font Nashville, found HERE (http://www.dafont.com/nashville.font) and use it for the title of your layout. I urge you to maybe make this a little bit of a larger size title. I think this font will look really good as a secondary focal point to the photos.

I like to use mine sort of as a stamp by messing with the blending options. I will add a little tutorial on how to do this in Photoshop after this post ;)

Here is my layout:

**Please post your layout in the Font Challenge Gallery HERE (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1295-the-font-challenge.html).
**Then come back here and post the layout and a link to the gallery so we can leave you some LOVE ;)

If you participate in our challenges here at the studio, you will receive 10% off all your PU purchases the following month, so get those layouts in! :D That goes for purchases with coupons, too!

Have fun! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Also, to make this font into a stamp, I have little trick I'd like to show you:

Step 1
double click the layer you would like to make into a stamp

You will get this prompt:

Please note how the the area in red. The bottom slider should be the same as the one above BEFORE you start working on the blending.

1. Press down the alt key at the same time as you click on the white pointed box on the far right of the bottom slider. This will separate the box into two parts.
2. Slide your mouse to the left with the left half. Watch how the slider changes the blend mode as it moves to the left. You can move both parts separately. You may also do this with the black box on the far left ;)

If they stick together at any time, just use alt/mouse-click to separate them.

There is no magic number for this, it just takes some fiddling with. But play around and you will find this an extremely useful little trick!

EXAMPLE:

BEFORE

AFTER
http://www.girlboheme.com/scrapbooking/tutorials/Nashville.jpg

I use it in almost all my layouts :)

If you have further questions, let me know. I don't know how to do this in elements, though, or any other programs. But if someone can post directions on how to do it in elements, that would be great!

Thanks!
Aimee
