Make This Element - Fake Doodle Borders

Part 1 of this tutorial is here. Please leave links here to any assets/templates you would like to see behind the scenes.

I came across this method early in my days of digital scrapping and it's quite helpful whenever you want to something to look a little less perfect. Here I'm going to demonstrate it on a line shape, but it works with any shape to give it a little rough up.

First, using the line tool, make a line on a new layer.

With the new line layer selected, go to Filter -> Distort -> Wave.

These are the settings I used on my line. Changing them will alter how much of an effect you'll get.

To make a border, make as many lines (on separate layers) as you want and "wave" them. Then match up the corners.

I love doodled borders. Thanks for the tutorial!

I am gonna try this tut,i really hope i can follow with psp,i don't have a clue what ,"wave them" means tho in this tut.

"Wave" is a filter that's available in Photoshop.

Thank you, Marisa. Never thought of using wave on a line. Love the effect.

I little over my head, but I'm learning. Thanks.

Wow! I was so over-complicating that! Thanks for the tut!

This is so much easier than I thought it would be! Thanks!

Neat, I've always just drawn the doodles but this is a faster method. Although I have both CS5 and Elements 11, it is nice that I can achieve this in both programs. smiley Thank you!
