Texture Making Tutorial

This tutorial is written using GiMP on a Macintosh computer. Things might be different with other programs, but idk, lol.

Open up a new canvas, however large you want your texture to be. I'm doing a timeline texture for FB's timeline cover photo so I've set mine to 850x315
Next, use the bucket tool to fill your canvas with some shade of grey
create a new transparent layer
Next, using a lighter shade of grey, pick a brush and apply it to the new transparent layer

create a new transparent layer above this one and repeat using varying shades of grey

keep repeating the process of creating new transparent layers and applying brushes in varying shades of grey and white til you get something you like. You may also want to mess with the opacity of some layers to get your desired effect.

now merge all your layers down to 1

save your new image as a .png, or .jpg

and tada! Texture created!!!
(feel free to snag this texture free, but please remember to leave some love if you do!)

Hope this helps!

Using PSP Masks in GiMP

Ok so here's how it goes!

Open a new canvas
open as layers and select your mask

go to colors and select invert colors

should look something like this ^ now

go to layers, transparency, color to alpha

make sure the color it's removing is "white" and click "ok"

now you have a transparent mask! yay!

Now we add the photo or paper!

open your photo or paper as a new layer

it might be necessary to resize the photo or paper so do that (make sure the chain is linked as to not distort the image!)

select your mask layer again

go to layers, transparency, and select alpha to selection

make your photo/paper layer active again

go to select and click invert

go to edit and click cut

make the mask layer invisible or just delete it entirely

& tada!!! should have something like this (saved as a .png for transparency)

Hope this helps! xoxo

My First Font! Free!

I found an awesome site that allows you to create your own fonts, pixel by pixel!

& I made this!

I'm quite proud!
At 16point font, the boxes are 13x13

I figure you can use these to make blinkies and have the letters perfectly spaced...finally!
You can add background by filling in the blank spaces with the pencil tool in whatever colors you want + this way, you can add the "blinking" in whatever way you want!

If you like my font and want to download it please go HERE!

& it would be super if you left comments!
