I have a little sneak to share from Studio Calico's May kit, 35mm:
This month's kits are filled with awesome stuff and lots of hexagons - which I'm loving right now. Want to know how to make your photos into hexagons without using a punch? I'll tell you how!
I did a bunch of hexagon photos for this layout using Studio Calico's March kit. It was all done in Photoshop using masks. Start by making a hexagon using the custom shapes tool:
Bring in your photo on a separate layer and place it over top of the hexagon. The hexagon is now your mask and you'll create a clipping mask for the photo. Select layer > create clipping mask OR hold your mouse between the two layers in the layers panel and click ALT/OPTION. This makes your photo fill up the hexagon shape:
To make the big honeycomb on my Thirty-One Down layout above I created the pattern of hexagons in Illustrator then imported it into Photoshop to use as a mask - it was just easier to set up the pattern for me this way. But now the possibilites with hexagons are endless. Go forth and mask!
Don't forget that I have a free ship code for Two Peas in a Bucket going on right now:
