One of the things I just love about the physical scrapbook embellishments Ali and her team produce are the unique surfaces and textures they are made from or printed on. Fabric stickers, rubber tags, cork trees, or wood veneer words–when these items are released in her shop, they sell out QUICKLY!
Mobile memory keepers and digital scrapbookers use the digital version of these physical products. As mentioned in my previous post, the digital versions do not have the texture added to them. Side note: I did notice that the digital version of the adhesive enamel icons and the hexagon transparency die cuts actually have a foil treatment added to them. Those embellishments are in the December Daily 2019 Digital Main Kit. A flattened version as well.
So what can a we do if we love the look of those different textures but are working with pixels? Fake it and make it!
In this tutorial I’m going to demonstrate how to add texture to some of those digital embellishments to make them look like their physical counterparts. If you want to follow along with the video, you will need the following:

Those background textures are something you will have to search for on the internet. Look for some free ones using keywords like “free cork background texture,” or something along those lines. The ones I am using I purchased through Shutterstock several years ago.
