It’s the little things that add up to the making of a great digiscrap layout! Adding just a touch of sheen to an element can make it more realistic- and can help add an extra glow to your page! And it’s as simple as a few swipes of your tool brush!

One trick I love to use is to give some sheen to vellum and papers! I make a quick swipe across an edge of something with a soft white basic brush & one with a dark brush on another layer on the opposite corner of the vellum, then clip that to the vellum or paper layer & change the blend modes.

and here’s a closer look at my settings- I used “multiply” on the darker brush and “screen” on the lighter one- it’s just a matter of playing around until you get the look you desire!
