I just bought JRA_SSPaper_Embossy Boots_Natures Bounty. I was surprised they were .jpg's rather than .psd files that you use in the texturizer. I couldn't get them to work right for me. I used different blend modes, but it still didn't look like what I have had with other texturizer files. I must not be doing them right. I even tried to save one as a .psd to use the texturizer filter and it worked but didn't have the nice bevel I was expecting. Can you post directions for using these please? I love the effects in the layouts. Oh, I have Elements 11.

Hmm,  I was trying to do it on a paper with gradients and some texture already on it. I tried it on a simply colored paper and it looked right that time with Overlay mode. I guess I need to choose my paper carefully to get the texture to show up well.

I'm having a nice conversation with myself, but thought I would share what I am learning as I go since I started this thinking it wasn't working. I found out that when using a slightly textured paper, if I duplicate the Embossy Boots layer, it gives a deeper embossing effect that shows up better. I can then adjust with opacity. These are very fun to work with now. I'm getting some really rich effects on deeper tones, and subtle texture on lighter papers.

What a helpful thread. :) I'm glad you figured it out! I don't have those templates to play with yet, but thanks for those tips!

LOL Peggy! Thanks for sharing what you are learning. It is sooo much fun to play isn't it? I love playing with blending modes. I like to play with hue/saturation too. Have fun! :)

Peggy, I remember having done the same thing... come here for help and end up working it out myself.

But I do want to thank you for drawing my attention to those papers as they are now on my wish list.

Hi I liked reading your thread, Peggy!   Sorry I was asleep when you were asking, but glad you figured it out - you must be proud and can't wait to see how you used the templates!  :)

It was mid afternooon for me and we were stupidly moving furniture in 42C heat :-(.  I know what you mean though, sometimes as soon as I give up and ask for help I figure out what I did wrong! Once I wrote to a designer about the .psd files not working etc and it turned out they WERE the samples .jpeg files! So asking is never pointless, and always worth it!

I have those papers and I'm glad you started this thread.  Now I can go and play with the papers and see what I can come up with.  Thanks Peggy.

Yes, thanks for sharing your learning process.  I have several of those papers, and haven't remembered to use them for a long time.  Need to fix that.
