So, you鈥檝e got the perfect kit with the perfect theme for the perfect image鈥ut it鈥檚 all wrong color-wise!聽 What do you do?聽 Change the color of the kit of course!聽 Here are two different easy ways to change up the color of an element or paper.

The quickest way is when the element or paper usually has one tone.聽 Just one solid main color, for instance in a string, or a solid paper.聽 I use Photoshop CS3 (yes, I know, I鈥檓 behind but I鈥檓 super comfortable with it and really don鈥檛 have the time to relearn new software, because you know there鈥檚 a learning curve and I鈥檒l admit to old age!).聽 The kit I鈥檓 working with in the following tutorial is Transformation (easy to work with since there is one main color).

Take the element and place it in Photoshop.聽This element is the splatters from Transformation.

original

 

 

Then click on聽LAYER>NEW>LAYER聽or聽Shft + Ctrl + N聽for a new layer.

1

In the tools section, select the color you want to change it to.聽 I suggest opening your image and using the eye dropper tool to select your color and then tweaking it to suit.聽 The selected color will be on the left top of the color boxes in the toolbox. 聽This is the foreground color.

2

3

Select the paint bucket tool and drop the color in the new layer. Then clip the layer to the first layer (the original image).聽 Do this by Ctrl + Alt + G or LAYER>Create Clipping Mask.聽

45

You can then go into the layers palette and change the blend modes to give you more options.

6

 

final

This method is great when there is one color option to change.聽 If you want to change various different colors, this is a bit more complex but you will be happier with the possibilities.聽This paper is also from Transformation.

orig 2

 

Select the color you wish in the color picker. Then, switch the selected color to the background by clicking on the arrow.聽 You will need this color as reference.

78

Click Ctrl + U to get to the Hue/Saturation screen (also can click on Image>Adjustment>Hue/Saturation).聽 Select Cyan in the Edit box (it defaults as Master).聽 Then use the eyedropper that pops up and select the color on your image that you want to change, in this case, the purple.聽 So then, Magenta shows up and that purple color shows up in the foreground box in the toolbox.

9

 

 

10

 

11

Use the Hue slider to change the color approximately to what you are looking for.聽 Use your reference (the background color in the toolbox) to help you.聽 When you get to the approximate hue, use the Saturation and Lightness sliders for more precision.聽 You can then work on the next color in the same paper that needs changing.聽 You’ll notice that colors affect each other. So when working in Magenta, all colors with a little magenta in it will change.

12

 

Remember, this is only with one color change. 聽You can finesse additional colors in the paper to suit your taste and photo.

This week, we’re releasing a made to match set with Studio Unica suitable for spring, Transformation! 聽It’s meant as a way of changing an aspect of your life or situation, maybe for the better, maybe to change up the status quo, maybe for a family dynamic. 聽Whatever the case, spring seems to be a great time for transformation.

ViVa_Transform_bundlepreviewLG

 

That’s the entire collection: elements, papers, trashed background papers, alpha, and journal cards! 聽For just the kit and papers:

ViVa_Transform_previewLG

ViVa_Transform_pppreviewLG

 

And the other packs, separately:

ViVa_Transform_trashpppreviewLG

 

ViVa_Transform_appreviewLG

 

ViVa_Transform_journalpreviewLG

Use the Transformation Journal Cards as ephemera or journaling bits in your digital layouts. 聽We’ve included collage sheets so you could print it out, cut it and insert into your pocket scrapbooking! 聽You could even alter it a bit before you print it out, so its a little more customized. 聽Or print it, cut it, and use a felt tip marker to write some journaling on it. 聽Super versatile.

The Transformation Trashed Papers are awesome to mix and match with the background papers included in the kit pack. 聽Use the background papers behind the trashed papers. 聽You could even re-size the trashed papers into smaller pieces to use as journaling papers. 聽If you like just the texture, you could clip it to a shape of your own.

Here is the wordart made to match from Studio Unica:

ArtRage聽is an easy to use digital paint software with many possibilities for the digital scrapbooker or artist. The tools inArtRage聽work very similar to the the art tools of the聽physical world.聽The best way to work with聽ArtRage聽is to use it with a聽Wacom聽tablet. There is more precision with a pen than with a mouse. This tutorial uses聽ArtRage 4, Bamboo Create and Photoshop CS3.

Upon opening聽ArtRage, click onFILE>NEW PAINTING,a window will appear. Under聽Screen Size, type in width and height size. For standard digital scrapbooking, 3600 px for both. Where it says聽Printed Size is: 12×12 at, type 300 pixels/inch.

#1

At quick glance, there is a color wheel on the lower right side for quick color selection. On the lower left side, the selection of brushes and art tools. At the top right, there is a layer box.聽ArtRage聽supports layers and will save and export to Photoshop in layers. Top left bar are file selections including undo and zoom buttons.

#2

To start, import a doodle or line drawing. This is a doodle from Cilenia Curtis. Select聽FILE>IMPORT IMAGE FILE TO LAYER.Find the drawing and select to import into ArtRage.

#3

 

Create another layer in the layers box by clicking on the plus sign. 聽The layer should be above the drawing.

#4n

 

Select the watercolor brush and click on the tool size. This will bring up a box. Type in 200%.

#9n

Start to use the brush to color in the drawing. Remember to be in the layer ABOVE the drawing. With the watercolor brush, it acts like real watercolors. The color will start to fade. Picking up the pen/mouse will act as if lifting the brush to reload with water. Putting it back down will give it more intense color. The brushed image will carry similar streaks as in watercolor.

When painting in the layer above the line drawing, select the right bottom button聽on the layer for blend modes.

#7

Go to聽BLEND MODE>MULTIPLY. 聽This will cause the line drawing layer to show thru the paint layer.

#8

 

For additional fun brush settings, click on聽Settings聽above the brushes/tools to open up further selections. Next toNo Preset, there is a tiny sideways arrow. Select this and then聽Watercolor.聽There are further selections to play with. For example,聽JUST WATER聽acts as if additional water was added to the paint and thins it out more.

#5

For additional texture and realism, add an overlay by selecting聽FILE>IMPORT IMAGE FILE TO LAYER聽and select a watercolor texture. This will be placed in its own file ABOVE the paint.

#10

Change the blend mode by selecting the bottom right side button on the layer,聽BLEND MODE>OVERLAY.

#11

 

This texture happens to be black and white. 聽If using a colored texture file, it will affect the painted color layer beneath. To turn it black and white, select聽EDIT>ADJUST LAYER COLORS.

#12

A box will appear. The four sliders will effect the color of the texture in the layer. To make the texture black and white, slide the color over to -100%. The preview will show the effects.

#14

 

For more painting, do not forget to select the PAINT layer and not the texture layer or the line drawing layer. To view the drawing without the texture overly, click on the EYE on the top left button of the layer.

#13

To save as an聽ArtRage聽file, select聽EDIT>SAVE PAINTING聽or聽EDIT>SAVE AS. To save as a Photoshop layered file or another type of file, select聽EDIT>EXPORT IMAGE FILE, then select the type.聽Try out a聽demo聽of the latest Version 4 to get a feel for this type of software. It contains many of the features of the full package with limited save and export, but its a great way to evaluate this product before you purchase it.
