Photoshop Friday: Add a Gradient Journaling Block

Learn this new way to integrate your journaling

Ready to Get Started?

Hey there! I'm excited to bring back some Photoshop Friday fun! In this course, you'll find a helpful video that will show you how to add a gradient journaling block. This great technique helps give the illusion that your photo is larger because it hides the edge of your photo. it is an awesome way to integrate your journaling, your title, and even extra photos with your main focal photo.

In addition to the video tutorial, you will receive a layered PSD template to make your own digital layout and you will receive a PDF instruction sheet. Not only do these PDFs have all of the video instructions in written format, but they also are full of gorgeous layouts from our Creative Team. They will show you how to take the technique you learned and apply it to a different layout for a whole new look. How cool is that?!

Here is a look at my layout and a sneak peak of the template that you will be working with today.
