74 Scrapbooking Techniques: Tinting

Tinting is a great way to add a touch of color to black-and-white photos. Tinting can be used to draw focus to a certain portion of a photograph or add color to a dull black and white page.

A special product called Photo Twin pens is useful for tinting. The basic idea is to draw on the photograph with these pens to create custom tints. For example, you can add a health blush to Grandma's cheeks.

In real-life, however, this is much easier said than done. A great deal of practice is required to get these pens to create the desired results, and in the beginning, you’re probably better of practicing on pictures that you never plan on using in your scrapbook.

Photo Twin is available at most local scrapbooking supply stores.
