Digital Images

So I thought I would give you a little tasted of what I've been working on.  I have taken some photos of the Ziegfeld Follies Girls, which I love, and have enhanced them for use in another project I will be finishing later this week.  Let me know what you think.

I'm really liking how they are turning out.  If all goes well and the quality of print is as good as the digital I may be in luck.  I'm almost finished and then I can start on the project I plan to incorporate these images into tomorrow.  Check back later.

Domino Pendants

One of my favorite art ning groups I belong to is Roses On My Table.  There are always lots of great things to do and learn on there.  I recently signed up for Zinnia's Domino Mania workshop (check it out here) and I had tons of fun making them.  I made one for my mother and sister-in-law for a Christmas present, but I forgot to take pictures.  I also made one for myself and one for my daughter as a Christmas present.  Below is a picture (not very good) of the one I made for myself.

It's really very pretty in person and I absolutely love the image.
Next is the one I made for my daughter.
I added little confetti stars and moons to the resin as it was drying.  She really loved it.
And next is a photo of the both of them.

I have many more ideas for others that I want to make and I'm going to have my husband drill some wholes in a few so I can make key chains.  They were so much fun and I had a little assembly line of them going...LOL. Check out Zinnia's site for lots of other projects.

Two New Tags, One Animated One Not

I have been having tons of fun with my updated software.  So many things work much better and I am able to do things I wasn't in my other program.  For those out there that love digital media if you don't want to spend a ton of money I recommend PaintShop Pro X4 by Corel.  This is what I have been using.  I have Photoshop Elements 8 and there is so much I cannot do in it that I can in PaintShop.  If you don't mind spending a ton of money then I recomment Adobe CS5 it has all the bells and whistles.  I'm not quite there yet where I can justify spending that kind of money, but I tried it for 30 days and it is AWESOME!  Now back to my PaintShop, which I am totally lovin'.  Here are my two latest tags I've made and I hope you enjoy them.  I'm hoping to be able to do a few tutorials soon.  I'm learning to use all kinds of effects which is really cool.

This one I call Punk Animae Girl.


This is another Fall one that I did from some of the kits I have compiled over time.

I call her Fall Faery.  Well I must be off to do a little in the studio and then off to bed.  

Happy Creating,

A Little Bling In the New Tag Punk Girl

So I have been learning how to make "tags" and animated tags with my paint shop pro software and I'm really enjoying it.  I think I will have to invest and upgrade in the new program though.  Next I am going to learn how to make masks and templates and my own digital tubs like the girl pictured in here.  For some reason though the copywrite info and my license to use her isn't showing I am posting it below the image.  I still have a lot to learn,but I'm really enjoying it.  There is so much you can do with these softwares it's just amazing to me.  I new dimension to my art journey.

New animated tag I worked on today.  I had a few problems with a couple of the layers not working out as I wanted them to, so it's back to the drawing board so I can see what went wrong.

Animated Winter Sig Tag

So I was having a little fun and took a tutorial on a blog I found so I could learn how to do animation, check blog out here and she had a really cute one for winter with animated snow.  I changed it a bit and used a different tube.  My tube can be found at PSP Tubes Emporium and the artist is Maxine Gadd.  I thought it was really elegant.  The scrap kit used is by Butterfly Blush Designs and it's called Winter Tenderness and can be purchased here.  In order to use the snow image you need to contact the owner of the image at her blog which is where the tutorial is taught, by Horesplay's Pasture Tutorials.  I've been learning alot about digital media and practicing making my own.  I will hopefully have some images that I have created that I am happy enough to share soon, in the meantime I rely on other's and then do my own tweaking.  All of them are for Personal Use Only and I cannot share or sell them, so if you like something let me know and I will let you know where I got it so you can get it too.  I hope you enjoy the design.  Thanks.
