Custom Layered Butterfly Templates
I am completely obsessed with butterflies! What’s not to like? They’re magical and etherial and gentle and soft and fragile and …. Need I go on? I love them so much that I’m pretty sure there is at least one butterfy in every kit I’ve ever released!
The biggest problem with butterfly elements — at least from my perspective — is that they are not easy to recolor. It takes lots of fiddling and knowledge of the inner workings of Photshop or Photoshop Elements to get these beauties to be unique.
Playing around with some of my own mixed media backgrounds — which start their lives as lots of layers of paint and gesso and all sorts of stuff — I realized I could re-purpose them in a super fun way! And that’s how these Custom Layered Butterfly Templates were born!
The set includes four different butterflies, each in a separate layered PSD file, and one Photoshop/Photoshop Elements pattern (.pat) file containing five of my favorite mixed media backgrounds. Each of the butterfiles on this post were made with these five patterns and — as you can see — they make for almost endless butterfly possibilities!
My tutorial shows you how to load the pattern file and how to use them create your own fabulous winged beauties!
