Thank you for stopping by on my blog, I hope you find something here that pleases you. If you do please feel free to leave a comment, either here or in my 4shared account. As an artist I would love to know if you like my offerings or if there is something you are looking for. I read each comment that is left and enjoy hearing from you=]
It has come to my attention that 4shared has changed their TOU for link sharing. I have found that you will now be asked to Login or Create an Account in order to download a file. Yes I know it is free to sign up but I don't think you should have to do that in order to get a freebie. So I will start to change the links over to box.com and I can only hope that they will not do this as well.

PTU Tutorial, Suitable for Novice Photoshop Users

Okay, today I have a basic tag tutorial. This should be suitable for novice users of Photoshop. That being said you should still be familiar with your program enough to know how to add elements etc. If anyone needs a more basic tutorial, feel free to comment below and I will see if I can help. I am pretty pleased with this tag, it is simple and uncluttered, the kit really shows off the beautiful art of the tube. The two seem made for each other.

As always click on image to view at full size!

This tutorial was created using Photoshop Elements 5.

Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and not intentional. Please do not post this tutorial in part or whole anywhere else, but instead link back to my blog.
 It is assumed that you will have a good working knowledge of Photoshop Elements.

*Reminder, when I state, resize, it means to decrease the size. It is a direct violation of TOU to increase the size of a tube from it's original size.

The beautiful tube I am using is by Giada Calò- Autumn Witch, you need a license to use it. The very versatile kit is by Whispy's D'zines "Faerie Magick" . You will find both at Digital Chaos. Don't forget to look around at all the other wonderful things offered there ;)

As always, this tutorial is meant as a guide only.

Let's get started....

Elements used-
el2
el4
el21
paper1
el63
el44
el7
el12
el5
el6
el10 x2
el17
el11 x2

font used  CK Script

1. Open a new document, Ctrl + N, 700x700 pixels. We will resize everything at the end

2. Add paper1. Using Cookie Cutter Tool, select a frame (I used Frame 5) and apply to the paper. Now go to Special Effects- Bevels- Scalloped Edge, settings-9px, direction up.

3. Place tube behind frame, resize to fit. Place el21 behind tube and resize.

4. Add el2 to the very back and use in place of a mask.

5. Begin adding elements, use my example as a guide. Resize as needed. Apply a drop shadow to each element if needed.

6. Some elements are flipped horizontally, you should adjust them to suit your taste.

7. Resize and crop to desired size.

8. Last add your copyright info and license number and name or phrase. This should be done last because any resizing can cause the copyright to become hard to read.

Now save as a .png and you are done.

The beautiful tube I am using is by Dark Yarrow- Ravens Sorrow, you need a license to use it. The very versatile kit is by Dark Yarrow "Sapphire" . You will find both at Digital Chaos. Don't forget to look around at all the other wonderful things offered there ;)

As always, this tutorial is meant as a guide only.

Let's get started....

Elements used-
Flower07 x2
Heart01 x3
Flower08
Gem02
BlingDoodle02
Ribbon01
Frame04
Paper14
BlingDoodle01
Paper03

mask by Wee Scots Lass Creations WSL_Mask254
font used  CK Maternal

 1. Open a new document, Ctrl + N, 700x700 pixels.

We will resize everything at the end

2. Add Frame04 and tube. Position tube as seen in my example. Make a duplicate copy of the tube and flip it for a mirror image. Place behind the frame. Change the blending mode to Hard Light, 100% Opacity

3. Now, back to the first tube placed, I used the selection tool to help erase certain parts of the tube to fit the frame, this is my preference but you can also opt to put it behind the frame as well.

4. Place Paper14 and make sure it is behind all elements already added. Using selection tool, select the inside of each frame opening. Be sure to get all of the smaller openings created by the string on the frame (you'll know if you missed any after this step is completed). Now, making sure your Paper14 layer is active, go to Select- Modify- Expand by 3 pixels. Next create a new layer via copy. Hide the original Paper14 layer.

5. Begin adding elements, use my example as a guide. Resize as needed. Apply a drop shadow to each element if needed.

6. Some elements are flipped horizontally, you should adjust them to suit your taste.

7. Apply the mask WSL_Mask254 using Paper03.

8. Add the phrase or one of your choice. I used a white color with a black stroke of 2px and bevel up of 5px. Drop shadow to taste. The font is at 72pt but I did stretch it horizonatlly to fit across the frame

9. Resize and crop to desired size.

10. Last add your copyright info and license number and name or phrase. This should be done last because any resizing can cause the copyright to become hard to read.

Now save as a .png and you are done.

Free Timeline Cover

I made a timeline cover and it is free to download at the Digital Chaos store. You can find it here. If this isn't to your liking just look around, there are a number of different themed covers to choose from. ;)


Braiiins!!!!!! CU Freebie

Finally getting around to uploading these..... I bought my kid a toy brain that you put in water and it grows, before we added water I took some pics so I could extract it and share with y'all. So there are two photographed toy brains in the pack. The lighting was different on each and gives them each a different look. The other two brains were drawn by me.... now I am not a great artist but I'm kinda pleased with how these turned out.

So when you download this it will be in psd format, there will be 4 brain layers, the background layer includes my terms of use and a preview layer. All neat and tidy ;)

I hope you like them and find a use for them in your zombie or Halloween tags/kits or anything else your heart desires.

Free to use and commercial use ok!

A Bunch of New CU Freebies

I know, it's been a long time.... I am such a slacker! But today I hope to make up for that maybe just a little bit ;) I have some Commercial Use freebies for you. Like it says on the previews, these are all things I own and have photographed and extracted myself. All of the elements except for one set are Full Size (300 dpi), please make note when you download if you wish to use these for printables, Tagger Size does not print well. You are allowed of course to resize any Full Size elements down to Tagger Size, my TOU is really easy and you can find a copy in each file.
