Tutorial : Photoshop & Your Silhoutte Cameo

Today, I'm going to share how to create this layout with photoshop & silhouette Cameo combined.

*title cut file from Pink Paislee

Firstly, launch photoshop and select File > New.
Next, select the width of the paper to be 12 inches, height to be 12 inches.
To draw a star, select the polygon tool & check Star & Indent sides by 50. 
Make sure the colour is Black before you proceed with drawing the stars.

You can then compose the stars whichever way you like on the workspace.
Once you are done, save your file in a .png format.

Next, Launch your silhouette studio app. Open your earlier saved image. 
Your saved file should appear on your silhouette studio workspace.
Next, select the trace function. Click on SELECT TRACE AREA.
Uncheck the HIGH PASS FILTER option. 
Set the threshold to 100%.

Then, drag your cursor across the image. Make sure everything is covered.

When all the stars are highlighted, select Trace. You should be able to see a red outline for the stars.

Next, select the image & delete it, leaving only the cutting guides. As shown in picture below. Then, you are ready to send the job to silhouette. 

I mat a gold foil paper behind the cardstock we cut earlier to created the background for the layout below. The gold foil paper I used didn't turned out as nice as it should as it started to crinkle on the sides... 

The tile is a cut file from Pink Paislee. I painted it with glimmer glaze - Sugar cane, then applied my favourite stickles - diamond on it. Other elements from Maggie holmes flea market.
