How to retain that torn edge on your paper

I was asked this in the comment section and I replied there, but then I thought that I would post instructions here, so that if anyone else is wondering..... How to retain that torn edge on your paper .... now you will know :)

Well I just did it two ways. First off I brought in a paper to cover the "torn paper" layer of the template. Then, using the "magic wand" I selected the torn paper layer, then went to "Select, Inverse" and then clicked on my coloured paper layer and hit "delete" on the keyboard. This gave me a coloured paper, and a white tear. You then need to merge the two layers together by using "CTRL" and clicking on both layers in the Layers palette. Then press "CTRL" and "E" on your keyboard to merge the two layers together. This will give a torn edge to your paper. The second method is almost the same, although this time you make your paper that you drag on top of the "torn paper" layer as an "overlay" and then right click on your paper and select "create clipping mask". This will give you a torn edge to your paper that is a lighter shade of your paper.

Hope this helps, and that you come back and read it after all this typing I am doing LOL

If you are still having problems, then leave a comment and I will see if I can help you further.

Have a great day wherever you are.

I guess I am not with it. I have tried what you are saying and cannot get it to work. I have done torn paper on some other templates but they have had a separate layer for the actual tear.

I have been able to get the white part to work using the overlay but then the rest of the torn paper section (the part with the words journaling) takes on the color of the paper too.

I will keep trying.

Thanks for trying to help me.
