Milestone

Starting from today I'm selling my own designs in a webshop.

I'm so pleased and proud that my unique designs and creations are so appreciated.

It's a great honor and a big new task also to continue creating high level designs for all who loves my works. I'm in no lack of enthusiasm and ideas. :))

Of course, there will be "surprise" freebies on this site in the future too.

My first work to sell is a cheerful, easter coloured, waterpainting-like kit and alpha with freehand drawings.


A freebie attached to it here:


Below is a layout I've made using my kit. Lelle turned 5 last week and I wanted to immortalize her former "faces" in a layout. It was made for Klári's challenge on scrap.hu.

Easter cards - DT

I like the egg-shape stamp from Simon Says Clear Stamps SWIRLS ALIGN Exclusive Set! very much. In January I had an idea of a small basket to put red chocolate eggs in it. And by now it's created.

Credits:
Papers: yellow cardstock, BasicGrey Mellow;
Tim Holtz Adirondack Color Wash;
Simon Says Clear Stamps SWIRLS ALIGN Exclusive Set

This card has a set of origins. Mimosa is the color for the year 2009 by Pantone. This month's theme on scrap.hu is the scalloped shape. The weekly challenge of BasicGreyChallenges is about textured cards, so I used dry embossing on the cardstock with the help of my daughter's kitchen. :))


Idea of the suspension card is from Dawn's video.
The basket template is a 14x13cm rectangle folded in the way that the central part is sized to be 6x5cm. Corners and sides are cut as you can see here.


Finally I used the remains of the papers to make another easter card of similar color set.

Graffiti abc

I've completed the abc for my graffiti kit.

The tutorial below shows you a way to use these letters.

1. Put your letters on the background and merge the letters' layers.

2. Click on the layer thumbnail with CTRL+right mouse button to select the outline of the text.


3. In the menu: Select --> Modify --> Expand, and write in a value that is good for you.

4. Use Paint Bucket Tool from Tools palette and choose a color to fill the outline with. (Orange for me)


5. Select text's outline again! (CTRL+right click on the layer thumbnail)

6. Click on the background layer to make it active! Edit --> Copy (CTRL+C), Edit --> Paste (CTRL+V) A new layer appears: text shape, filled with background pattern.

7. On this new layer: Image --> Adjustments --> Desaturate!

8. Set layer's Blend mode to Hard Light, and Opacity to 60-80%. (As you wish.)


9. Merge two text layers!

10. Use Eraser tool with brush type Grunge on the text, so it becomes shabby.


And that's all. :))

Try it out and use for your pleasure!

Graffiti mini-kit

A graffiti inspired me to start a new mini-kit. Now it's completed, use it for your pleasure!


I was searching for photos to use with this kit. They were taken on a company organized family weekend last year. I used Newspaper Clipping Generator too. Title of the layout: Competition, the quote: "When the game is over is really just beginning."

A graffiti alpha is coming soon!
