Add Light to Your Layouts Digitally
Holiday light can be as simple and beautiful as the still, soft glow of the moon on a winter's night. Re-create that peaceful look on your scrapbook layouts using Photoshop Elements 8 and the fonts of your choice. Give this simple digital light effect a try on a layout about your child sleeping and dreaming of Santa.
