One of my ultimate goals for most (no, not all, lol) of my pages is to have them look "natural", i.e. not computer generated.
I thought maybe we could all help each other with tips and tricks to "keep it real".
My first is one for pins and paperclips. After erasing the part of the pin or eraser that wouldn't show, go to the layer beneath. You can then use your dodge or burn tool to draw on the "bump" that would occur naturally. Even better than that, TracyAnn (from 2peas) had the awesome suggestion to use your Filter>Distort>Pinch on that section of "paper". It works like a charm!
Anybody else care to add some ideas? We can all get ideas from each other!
