Mixing it up a bit – Digital Tweaking!

Some of you already know that I was so Hand-coloring phobic last year and my coloring was all done digitally. Here’s a mixed piece I did in the wee hours of this morning.

The Original Image was colored by hand and then I imported it into my computer to watermark it ….and got a bit carried away lol. Now if you are going to do this, I recommend Scanning your image in. I wasn’t planning to do this… so mine was just from a photograph, but you get the idea.

One of the things I love about my new Epson Eco Tank printer, is not having to worry about printing out large full color images… and running out of ink LOL.

It’s very quick and easy to go from this:

To THIS ……cutebuttonwmd_frmd

Just a wave of the magic wand,  drop shadow,  and some of the presets like add borders and texture effects… and Bingo!!…  your image is now framed and ready to print.

  • Image –  Cute as a Button “Moving Day”  colored with Chameleon Pens, Ranger Distress Pens and  Zig Memory System writers. Printed on 110lb card stock
  • Digital Addons – I worked in my trusty old Jasc Paint Shop Pro7, it’s a great program for beginners and you can still pick up a copy on Ebay at a decent price now and then.

Don’t be afraid to mix your techniques and ideas when crafting… it’s a lot of fun and handy when you don’t have the physical papers, or embellishments at hand.

Concept Layout – combining digis to build a scene

The minute I saw this Scrappers Delights Challenge Freebie Image it just reminded me of Cinderella.. and this is what sprung to mind. The background is another Scrappers Delight Image and the Carriage came from Make it Crafty …. Full details on the finished piece later, but I wanted to share this and show how easy it is to build a scene. 3 images, a speech/thought bubble and a little imagination is all it took to get here. Admittedly I have years of experience playing with graphics programs, but it’s all simple stuff.. layers and area selections.

I started coloring her last night..so far so good.. it’s a fun image to play with.

This was done in an old version of Jasc Paint Shop Pro, Version 7. That is my goto program for quick Graphics, but the tools and features used are pretty much universal on most programs.. If anyone is interested I can throw together a quickie video at some point showing how it’s done in PSP7 so you can compare the features and learn how to do it in whatever software you own… leave a comment 🙂
