A while back I shared with you how to create a digital overlay using a stamp. Now I want to share how you can make your own overlay from a patterned paper. This is a great way to increase your digital stash.
Open a large patterned paper in Photoshop Elements and make a duplicate copy.Select Enhance>Convert to Black and White.
Using your Quick Select tool, select a sample area of what you'd like to remove.
Select>Similar and cut or delete.
New Adjustment Layer>Threshold and use slider until image is all black.
Merge and save as a .png file.
