EAD Overlays

They call is Gospel Music Week. All genres of Christian music plus Christian radio, retail, managers, artists, promoters (you name it they're there!) converge upon Nashville, TN. Our morning show is broadcasting live from the week. It's fun to hear what makes our listeners favorite artists tick, what the artists' family life is like, and what kind of people they are a part from their music. It's an opportunity to know the artists a little more personally.

The morning show has been sending back videos so we can give our listeners a different point of view, and I've spent almost every hour since Saturday editing and uploading clips...in addition to my afternoon show and getting up at 5AM to announce the morning traffic. I've gone the past 4 year, but because of budget cuts, it just wasn't possible. I'm actually pretty happy to be sleeping in my own bed and getting more than 2-3 hours sleep (which is what I typically get each night of GMA week!). If you're a fan of Christian music, you'll probably enjoy watching the videos. We've got informal clips of Big Daddy Weave, Mark Schultz, Jeremy Camp, and plenty more.

As creative as making videos has been, I've been feeling the need to be “scrap book” creative. So, I've decided to make a few page overlays for you. If you've never used an overlay before, they're very simple and can change the look of a page in an instant. Simply place the PNG file over the background paper or background color. You can leave it as is, change the blend mode, or change the color using the Hue/Saturation slider. Check the box that says “Colorize” and adjust the hue, saturation, and/or lightness sliders to the desired color. There are lots of ways to use it! Have fun!

By the way, if you download it, would you leave a link to your blog? I'd love to see your work!
