In Topic: Superhero Or Tmnt Kits/templates/embellies?

25 August 2014 - 07:52 AM

Some ideas for making your own superheros:

 

You could draw your own, coloring as you wish, and scan - if you have a scanner.  That's a bit faster than drawing in PSE, or other program.

 

There are lots of images available on line, some of which are copyright free as well as free downloads; I don't know if superheros are included.  Depending on the age of your son, you might find something workable by searching for free coloring pages online, too.

 

To avoid the girly complaint, use blending or adjustment layers to modify colors, or use papers with a grungy or boy feel to clip to your characters and/or backgrounds.

 

Good luck with your project!


In Topic: Newbie Needs Advice On Installing Brushes, Etc. In Pse

24 August 2014 - 07:53 AM

You seem to have received good advice.  

Two thoughts:  

I save the marketing image for a brush (actually, for all products) at the top of the folder so I can easily click on it to remind me what the brush, etc. looks like.  Sometimes the images come with the download file; sometimes I copy them from the boutique when I purchase them.

 

I use PSE10.  I don't install brushes, nor do I drag them onto a page - don't know how that works for a brush.  I so load them as needed, using the drop down choices.  Once I've used them, and returned to default brushes, they disappear until the next time I need them.

 

Hope this helps!

In Topic: Aged Paper With Tattered Edges

21 August 2014 - 08:54 AM

I didn't find a single product that seemed to fit your description.  But there is a set of SSPapers with text, one of them newsprint, by Thao Cosgrove, and the edges are grungy.

And there are several Scrap Simple product with torn and/or curled edge, which could be applied to the paper.  Some are for photos, but could be enlarged to fit:  Syndee's Torn Phots, Torn Shapes, and Curled and Torn, and Angie Briggs' Tear It UP.

 

Hope this helps!


In Topic: What Are Your Favorite Summer Reads?

18 August 2014 - 11:53 AM

I too read everything Nora Roberts writes, a few of them more than once.  And I found Diana Galbadon's Outlander series thoroughly engrossing, although she does infuriate me with the cliffhangers at the end of each book.  Just finished the latest release last month.

Two new (to me) authors I've enjoyed are J.T. Ellison (When Shadows Fall) and Camilla Lackberg (The Hidden Child).  Both write mysteries, but with very different styles.
