    I stopped at the pattern overlay since it will not show up no matter how much I change it around or keep it the way this tutorial SAYS to do it….
    What would be some reasons the pattern overlay is not even showing up at all..?

    awsome tutorial thanx for uploading

    and guyzzz ive figured out y it doesnt show the pattern ..i played around and found out while applying the pattern if u luk up that bar where u have selected ‘patterns’ optoin..the 2nd option from the top is ‘blending options custom’ …go there and deselect ‘transparency shapes layer’ …and ur pattern will show …

    thnku =)

    We really appreciate your help on becoming better in Photoshop. Is there away we can download the steps without the ads or any other ‘extra’ stuff on the pages, I like to print them but comes out with a lot of stuff we don’t need, or a book?
    Thanks.

    07/02/2013

    Wow!, I just want to share this with you, probably some of you already know it, but I hope it helps at least one person. I tried to print as I normally do, but this time I saw the option to save it as a PDF and voila! I got it, all I had to do it was to delete the pages that I don’t need.
