Love Bug

Shani has a couple of new kits out, one of them is a cutie called Love Bug.

I made a tag using just the kit.

Tutorial for Love Bug Tag 1

I used an adorable new kit from Wicked Princess Scraps called “Love Bug”.
I used Adobe Creative Suite 4 to make this tag, but it can be created in any of the major graphics software programs. Have transform controls activated (in PS Elements, show bounding box, in PSP, activate the pick tool.)

Open a new blank document 700 pixels x 700 pixels. Use the circular selection tool to create a circle. Fill with background of choice (paper 6).
Copy & paste your choice of elements. Resize elements as needed & arrange in a way you like.
Don't hesitate to move elements' layers up or down or to make layers invisible during the creative process. I applied the bevel & emboss effect in the CS4 program to each element in this tag. You may want to experiment with effects.
. I used Ottum Hmk Bold as the font for all the text. To curve the text, right click in text layer, choose warp text, followed by arch.
When you are happy with the results, merge visible & save.

September 2010 desktop calendar

I decided to make sure I got the September desktop calendar finished & posted early since I am going into the hospital for surgery later this month.
I tried something a little different this time & used Wicked Princess' tag kit called Victoria Dove. It's on sale right now, if you're interested. There was so much in the kit it was hard to choose what to use.

Last month I tried uploading to Media Fire & couldn't find the file after it said it was uploaded, but I tried again with the desktop & this time it worked (I hope). Anyway I switched because 4 shared has gotten so ridiculous with their wait times for free users & I can't afford a premium account (with its premium price tag). September 2010 desktop
Hope you like it.
