Next, choose a shape in the paths menu that you want to use to cut out around the element or object that you want to journal around. You can even use the freeform pen tool if you have an irregular shape you want to cut out of the journaling area. Make sure to choose the "Subtract from paths area" option before beginning your cutout. Your cursor will turn into a large plus sign with a tiny minus sign at the bottom. After you've created your cut out shape, by holding down your mouse and spacebar, you can reposition your cutout if necessary.
Last, select the Text tool in Photoshop and move it into your journaling area where you plan on beginning to type. As soon as your Text tool is inside the journaling area with the subtracted cutout, the cursor will go from the normal square text cursor to having a dotted circle where the square was.
And that's that! Here is a page I made using this technique and part of the Spring Menagerie kit, which you will get for free if you complete the blog hop by gathering your scavenger hunt letters! (The area I "cut out" in this layout was around the pink butterfly.)
You can download here a very basic template of this page for free where the journaling text wrap is already done for you. My mystery letter to the DHD Spring Blog Hop Scavenger Hunt is:
