Here it is. Another coronavirus week in the life of our family. We did "risk" a visit with Grandma and Grandpa (so far just 2 confirmed cases in our entire county). We pretty much stayed home, did school work, played board games, and worked in the yard. I'll take it.

Oh and I ordered my DYD album from Shutterfly yesterday! I went with an 8x8 lay-flat book. I'll make sure to share some photos when we get it in. It will be a nice little surprise for the kids.

Fun with Fun Fold Overlays


Happy Thursday y’all!  I hope this blog post finds you healthy and doing well with your social isolation.  I thought I’d take this time to show off one of Liz’s products and hopefully spark your creativity and alleviate some of your boredom!

Do you have the Fun Folds Overlay?  This is something I love to use because it’s quite versatile.  First, there are so many different overlays available – you can choose which one you want based on the number of folds and how much of an effect you would like.  For instance, I clipped the Two Fold Light overlay on top of a 12 x 12 piece of paper.  

Now look at the same piece of paper, but with the Dark version instead. 

I used the same Color Burn blending option and opacity on both, but as you can see, there is a much deeper folding effect when using the Dark version.

You can also vary the blending mode and get quite different results.  Let me show you what I mean!  I’m going to use the Two Fold Dark version clipped on top of a paper.  This first one shows what it looks like with the blending mode set to Multiply and the second with it set to Soft Light.


The Multiply version looks as if the paper folds are being pushed out while the Soft Light one looks as if the folds are facing inward.  How cool is that?

Don’t forget that you can move the overlays around too.  In the first one, I clipped the Light Single Fold version to the middle of my 12x12 paper, but in the second version I moved it to the top third.



Can you see how you could use the same overlay and get an alternative look?

Now you can also change the direction of the overlay.  In the first one I used the Bonus Fold as is with a blending mode set to Multiply.  But in the second version, I simply rotated the overlay 90 degrees.


It's a different look altogether!

But don’t think you can only clip these overlays to background papers!  Fellow CT member Tiffany used one on her journaling strip here:

Isn’t that pretty?  It really adds some visual interest to the page!

But I took the same overlay and applied it to my photo.  I’ll show you how I did it.  First, I clipped the overlay to my photo, moved it to the top portion of my photo, and set the opacity to 49%.  Can you see it here?

Next, I placed a shadow on my photo and then put it on it’s own layer.


I then used transform to warp the top corner just enough to give the illusion my photo is bending.


This is the final layout:


So not only did I “fold” my photo slightly, but I also made it appear as if my background paper is folded too by using the Sideways fold overlay.  Like I said, this set of overlays is so versatile that I find myself reaching for them again and again.  I hope you have as much fun playing with your overlays as I do mine!
