When it comes to digital scrapbooking, capturing and preserving our stories is a fundamental part of the process. We want to ensure that the journaling we include in our layouts is legible and easily readable — that’s the whole point, right? However, there are instances where our stories are deeply personal, and while we may want that text to be legible when we print our pages or photo books for our families, the opposite may be true if we post our pages to online galleries or social media. And, if you’re an art journaler, you may be expressing lots of feelings on your page which are not meant for the public to see.
That presents a dilemma because if we leave the journaling off the page, we’ve lost a key element of the page design, right? In this tutorial, I’ll show you my favorite technique for disguising personal journaling on your digital scrapbook layout or art journal page (using Photoshop® and Photoshop Elements®), while still keeping the text as a decorative element. It’s such a simple thing to do, it will leave you wondering why you didn’t think of it before!
