Have you ever browsed through the store, see an amazing product that you would love to have for a certain layout? The only problem is that it isn’t the right color. The product may even advertise, “Easy to Recolor!!” But you say, “Sure…if only I knew how to do that!” I’ve been there before and while this may be a basic skill for some readers, there are some that might not know this simple trick. So, today we are going to talk about how to recolor different elements, like word art, paint splatz, and many more using Color Overlay. I’ll use a few of my newest products for my examples.
Recoloring Using Overlay
There are so many things you can do with the color overlay option. You can change the color of paint splats and spritzes. The possibilities really are endless! Here are some examples:
Recoloring Using the Paint Bucket
As you can see, this word art already has two different color parts to it. What if the color doesn’t match the layout that you are creating, but you still want the two-tone effect that is shown here. How can you change the word “this”, to a different color that will match your page? I’ll show you!
In addition, if you wanted the entire word art piece to be changed to purple, you would simply use the color overlay option as it would be much quicker than individually filling each letter with the paint bucket tool. The paint bucket tool is great for coloring pieces of an element, rather than the entire thing.
Easy Peasy?! I hope so!
