Knot 1

Download Knot 1. This lesson will work on any solid color object, but you would change it to greyscale first, by clicking Enhance> adjust color> remove color. Sometimes you would like to use an element, but it's the wrong color, or you would like a differnet color than in a kit. I have been stressing the importance of learning to use templates, and today you are going to make a very simple one. The knot is provided in grey, white and black.

  1. Open the greyscale knot.
  2. Make a new layer, click Layer>new layer.
  3. Click Layer> group with previous. (or crtl+g)
  4. Now pick the color you would like and pick the bucket and fill with the color.
  5. It is solid and you can't really see the cord, so in the preview, shown is 2 variations. In the layers palette, click hard light for an exact color match, muliply will darken the color. You can play with all the available effects, just to get a feel for what they do. Have fun.
