Today I am going to share a simple tip for creating a vellum journaling spot like I did in this layout:
Create a new layer by clicking on this icon:
Using the Marquee Tool, draw out a rectangle.
Fill it with white (or whatever color you wish) by selecting the Paint Bucket tool and clicking within the "marching ants." Then, deselect it (Ctrl or Cmd +D).
Reduce the opacity. I reduced it to around 40%.
Add a shadow. My settings were: Size = 5, Distance = 10, Opacity = 30.
That's it! Feel free to ask questions if you have any and thanks for stopping by!
