I have finally decided to use my Pixelscrappers account to learn something new.
After all, I was always told that a day isn’t a day unless you learn something
new. That’s how I came upon learning to do a repeating dot pattern! It was so simple
and easy to do; I don’t know why I hadn’t tried it sooner. What to
give your try at it? Sign up for a free account here. And, if
not, I’m sharing my repeating dot pattern! Just right click to save to your
computer. Add to your patterns folder in Corel PSP and you’re done!
Isn’t here just so cute? Well, outside of those creepy
eyes anyway. LOL I created this by doing a tutorial that I found in my
misadventures on the internet. I was extremely surprised by how easy this
tutorial was and by the fact that I created this whole thing in Corel PSP!
Hmmm, I’m going to try this one in Pain.net as well,
just to see if our sisters-in-design can also benefit from this tutorial.
You can try this tutorial here. Until then, Leopard the
Teddy Bear is up for grabs from me. You can get him here. Enjoy!
Open paper 2, resize by 25% and apply your mask. Save in *psd form as “Sweet Caroline”.
Duplicate your mask and merge the two layers together.
Open frame double and resize by 40%. Center this in the middle of your mask layer.
Open your standing tube, resize if needed and add to the left hand side of your frame. I upsized mine by 102% and sharpened by 2.
Open your close up tube, flip horizontal and add below your frame, in the bottom window. Use your eraser to carefully remove the excess. Flip Horizontal again and then repeat with the upper frame window. Merge the two layers together.
Open sequin spill and resize by 35%. Add to the right side of your frame layer. Remove the two sections that fall over your mask layer.
Open flower 3, resize by 45% and add in the middle of the upper frame. Duplicate, flip vertical and then merge these two layers together.
Open flower 4, resize by 50% and add over the flower 3 layer.
Open butterfly and resize by 20%. Add above your sequin layer and position.
Crop your design and resize, if needed.
Add your name and copyright. Save and upload to photobucket. Enjoy!
Well, everyone, I decided to try my hand at kit making yet again. I'm still learning but I hope that I'm not doing too poorly. LOL My latest kit is called "Changing Leaves" and it started out back in November when the leaves here were changing their colours. It just took me a bit to find papers and such to complete what I had envisioned. I'm now quite satisfied with it and hope someone out there can find a use for it. LOL
I love the colours of fall -- the browns and oranges and darker greens -- so I tried in incorporate these into the kit. With a splash of colour and a little rust, it makes for a perfect addition to any old photos!
I couldn't help myself but create a new LO! With the holidays and my family getting together, I got a really great photograph of my sister-in law and her family. What makes this photo so special is that they don't all normally smile at the same time. LOL With four kids, something always goes wrong at photo time. LOL I used a freebie Layout Template by KF Designs, which you can find here. To complete my look, I'm using a scrap kit by JCM Designs, part of the Scraps N Pieces November blog train, which you can find here.
