Fun Fun Fun

Got the winter blues? Wacky Winnie Designz has a cheerful & colourful kit called Fun Fun Fun. It certainly cheered me up & I had fun making an alternate February 2012 desktop calendar, a quick page freebie for you to download.
I also made 2 tags, using Adobe PSCS, with "show transform controls" enabled, both tags started as new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels.

Tag 1: Fill the canvas with your background of choice (paper 1 at 30%). Add a 2nd layer & use a selection tool to create a shape (circle) which should be filled with a background of choice (paper 17).

At this point you can choose the elements you want to use - there is an amazing quantity to choose from - one of the times the visibility toggle comes in handy -helps you decide between various elements.
Your choice of tube or poser will influence your other choices. I used a poser (sunkissD1) by Angelic Poserz.
I placed the kite behind the poser; it proved a good place to put the name.
I copy, paste, resize by manipulating the bounding box, & then play with positioning. Cupcake 2 was the element that needed the most resizing - it filled the entire space!
I also used flowers 1, 2, 3, dragonfly 2 & butterfly 1, and applied the bevel & emboss effect to each of these elements.
When I added the sunglasses 1, I reduced the opacity to better determine where to erase to make it appear the sunglasses were stuck in her hair. While I was doing this I noticed the sunglasses looked better at 74% opacity.
Tag recipient name uses GE Travel Script. The tag title uses Harmonica Bold, with a fire style applied. Tag information used Arial Narrow.
Tag 2: I wanted to showcase the range of this kit, highlighting the music elements. I created a circle which I filled with paper 20.
Then I hunted out the poser first, using the work of Luscious Digi Dolls (pink 4). I put music notes 1 behind her, added guitar 1, using the eraser to make the hand look like she was playing, & added wrap 1 as a guitar strap.
I added individual music notes 8 and 9.
Tag theme used Chantilly Medium font, while the name used Fidelio MN with both the bevel and emboss effect and outer glow applied. Tag info used Arial Narrow.

This kit truly is fun and a great cure for winter blahs.
