Layer Style Tutorial for PS and Denim Styles w/JPEGS!

We had a fabulous party for Labor Day and I ate too much birthday cake and homeade ice cream, now I'm miserable! LOL. I spend most of the day cleaning and didn't get to check in too much but there is an awesome amount of downloads on my portion of Cornucopia of Color! I hope you enjoy it! Speaking of cleaning, I was pondering an argument I always had with mom regarding the order of doing things when housecleaning. She contends that you should dust before you vacuum because you will be getting dust on the floor. I always say that you should vacuum first because you always stir up dust when you vacuum. So I decided to put up a fun poll to see what everyone else thinks. Feel free to post your vote. I know, I have no life...


Today I have a layer style tutorial for PS. You can't create layer styles in PSE (unfortunately) and I wrote this using my program, CS3. Hopefully if you have an earlier version it will work for you too! And I am sooo sorry that I do not know what the shortcuts are for Mac, but feel free to download and see if you can follow along. The tutorial is in .pdf form and the cool thing is that I have included 10 seamless pattern files in greyscale to use as templates for your layer styles. The tutorial will walk you through creating a style using a tile that looks like glitter. I do not write many tutorials, because they are very time consuming and there are so many people who write them a lot better but I have had a couple of requests so I thought I would throw this togther. I really hope this helps, but if you have any additional questions feel free to email me and I will try to answer them! I also decided to include my latest style set, denim, and the denim jpegs created with them. The styles and jpegs are in the same .zip. If you do not use PS or PSE you can just delete the .asl file and use the papers.

How odd, I was just thinking yesterday how I couldn't wait to have time to start learning my program more, so I could learn to make my own styles and you give me a tut for it! LOL thanks so much!!

What a treat! I've been wanting to get a denim layer style! The tutorial will be helpful as well - I've only created a couple of layer styles and that was mostly by accident. Thanks so much!

The seamless tiles are so great! They don't take up a ton of space on my hard drive, and yet I can make pages with them. Thanks tons!

Thanks for the great denim!

I'm not able to vacuum the floor, but I do some dusting with it while my husband has it out. When I was able to vacuum, I still did my dusting with it. But if I were dusting by hand, I would do that first, because dusting spreads more dust around than vacuuming does.
