No Scraps - Where Oh Where

Where Oh Where

 

 

 
Oh where, oh where has my little dog gone?
Oh where, oh where can it be?
With its ears cut short, and its tail cut long,
Oh where, oh where is it?

No Scraps - Hickory Dickory Dock


Hickory Dickory Dock



 

Hickory, dickory, dock.
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, dickory, dock.

*When working with templates, I use the Manual Color Correction Tool (MCCT):

Highlight template layer

Click on the MCCT

Set top box to original layer color

Set bottom box to new color

Click OK

If you want to use the same color with different shades, simply click each template layer and apply the MCCT

WITHOUT changing the bottom color. This usually works giving each layer a different shade of the same color.

Occasionally you will find a template that this will not work on tho, so in that case simply change the colors each time.

This works great on templates with different shades of Gray and Black.*

 

There is a great mini-tut on how to use the MCCT by Justfi HERE

 

Another way to color template layers:

When working with templates, always Shift+D to duplicate, close original,

then on each layer, select with magic wand (or Select All, Float, De-float), ANL,

close/delete the original, do steps required in tutorial, select none

 

Try it out and see what works for you.

No Scraps - Wise Old Owl


Wise Old Owl


 



 

A wise old owl lived in an oak,
The more he saw, the less he spoke
The less he spoke, the more he heard,
Now, wasn't he a wise old bird?

No Scraps - Little Bo Peep

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
and doesn't know where to find them;
