Page: 2/6

1. Open a new document, at least 200 dpi for good printing, and make a new

2. Use rectangular marquee to create paper shape.
a. Optional Steps: use the lasso to remove parts of the selection to create
torn, jagged edges
b. Use Transform>Skew (Ctrl-T, right click Skew) to make the paper slightly
less rectangular

3. Fill with color; tans and earth tones make the most believable antique

4. With selection still active, type Q to enter Quick Mask Mode, or click
the Edit in Quick Mask Mode icon at the bottom of the tools palette.
a. Quick Mask Mode allows you to change the shape of a selection by running
filters or other effects on it. It doesn't change the actual object, just
the selection shape!
b. You will see a pink overlay so you know you are in Quick Mask Mode.
