When I scrapbooked on paper, I often used vellum as an accent or as the paper for my journaling. The look is easy to achieve digitally!
I like to type out my journaling for the page first.
Using the Shape tool, draw a white box behind your journaling.
Change the fill of the shape layer until it looks right to you – I usually use between 50 and 60 percent fill.
Using the shape tool allows you to put a drop shadow on the journaling block without having the shadow make the digital vellum look darker – so throw on the drop shadow of your choice, position your text and vellum on your layout, and you are done!
Happy scrapping! 🙂
