Mask #3 & #4

I sat down one day and just pumped out a whole load of Masks. I will be loading them one at a time as the week progresses.  This is one that I really like the way it turned out.  I hope you can use them for your creations.



Here is the next one that I did, using the same theme but slightly different.

New Template - Snow Flakes

I finally completed my first template for my blog.  I started it yesterday afternoon, but decided to get it completed so I can post to my blog.  Here it is and you can find it on the Template page to download.  I did get a little inspiration from all the snow that is falling in the northern hemisphere so wanted to create just for the moment.  I so wish we could experience a white Christmas just once here in Australia, but knowing human nature, we would probably complain bitterly about it Hahahaha


Please leave a comment letting me know how you like it.

Spirit Of Christmas




This tutorial is written for those with a working knowledge of PSP.
I wrote this tutorial on 23 November 2010 and any resemblance to other tutorials is purely by coincidence and not intentional.

Things you need:

I used PSP X but can be made in earlier versions just as well.
I used the wonderful art of Simon Han and can be purchased at PTE. You will need a license to use this art but you can use any tube in your tag.
I used Template #196 by Blissfully Beth found Here
Scrap kit used is Spirit Of Christmas and can be found at CBJ's store Here. Thanks Jo for your fantastic kit.
Mask of choice. I used 0670dmsk but you can use whatever you feel fits.
Font of choice. I used P22ZanerOne which is a Pay to Use font and you can find it Here.
Wordart by me. Can be found Here. Right click and Save As.
Eye Candy Impact

Lets get started.
1. First off open your template by holding the shift and D and copy and close the original.

2. Go to your Materials Pallet and select the Foreground colours and change to a colour that will compliment your tube. I used Paper5. Highlight the first circle and go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat. Create a new Raster Layer and then colour this layer with the colour or paper you have chosen for your circle. Deselect.

3. Select your next circle and follow the same steps you took to re-colour the first circle.

4. Once you have your circles how you want them, I then applied a glass effect by going to Effects - Plugins - Eye Candy - Impact - Glass. See settings below.


5. Select your elements you want to add to your tag and copy and paste to your tag. Place them where you want them to be.

6. Position your tube where you want it and add the copyright information on your tag. Make sure it is clear and easy to read. I used Pixelette size 8 anti alias off. I pasted the tube in the middle of the small circles and then applied a texture effect to them.



7. Add you name to your tag using your font of choice. I used P22ZanerOne size 105, anti alias sharp, bold, stroke width 1.0 font colour #765600 then I used Eye Candy Gradient Glow with the following settings.


8. Save your tag as a PNG or a JPG. Your tag is now finished.

Thank you for having a go at this one. I hope you enjoyed doing my tutorial.

Glow Of Autumn




This tutorial was written for those with a working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro.
This tutorial was written by me and any resemblance to any other is purely coincidental.
Tutorial written on Friday 8th October 2010.
What you will need:

Paint Shop Pro - I used PSP X but any version will work.
I'm using the gorgeous artwork of René Kunert which can be purchased from PTE and you need a license to use it. You can purchase the tube from HERE
Filters Needed - Bordure Mania - Ellipse & Graphics Plus - Cut Glass
Mask of choice
Font used -
Scrap kit Glow of Autumn (Tagger Sized), by the wonderfully talented Jo, you can purchase it HERE
Let’s get started

Open up a transparent canvas 650 x 650

Select your flood fill tool and fill the canvas with the paper, I used CBJ_GOA_P20.
Select Layers – Load/Save Mask – Load Mask from Disk. Select your mask.
I had the Invert transparency unticked, then merged group.

Next I selected a frame. I used CBJ_GOA_E_Floral Frame
Place the frame on your canvas and reduce the size by 85% Add a drop shadow to your frame.
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow - V 2, H -2, O 50, Blur 2.00 Colour Black.
Open the Papers folder and select paper
I then selected the CBJ_GOA_P7 Paper and selected the Ellipse tool and drew out a circle
to the size of the frame.
Place this behind the frame.
I then went to Effects - Plugins - Graphics Plus - Cut Glass to the settings below


Duplicate the paper layer and go to Adjust - Blur - Guassian Blur Radius set at 30.00
I then selected the SwirlGitter3 and placed this behind the frame and paper, position where you like it best. I then selected GlitterSpill2 and placed this under the SwirlGlitter3.

I then placed the elements of choice around the frame and once this was the way I liked it, I then added the gorgeous artwork of René Kunert. Resize your tag by 85% if you choose to do so.

Add the correct © Information to your tag. I used Ambitsek font set to 8 Pixels, Anti-Alias Off, colour set to #000000.

Now add your name with your font of choice. I used Impact set to 72 pixels. I used #FFA329 for the colour of the font with line width of 1.00 Black Anti-Alias Sharp. Now convert to Raster layer. Go to Effects - Bordure Mania - Ellipse - Then apply your filter as shown below.
Once your name is as you want it, apply Drop shadow the same as you did for the frame.

Your tag is now complete. Save as a PNG or JPG.

I hope you enjoyed doing this tutorial.

Beautifully Punked








This tutorial was written for those with a working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro.
This tutorial was written by me and any resemblance to any other is purely coincidental.
Tutorial written on Monday 20th September 2010.


What you will need:
Paint Shop Pro - I used PSP X but any version will work.
I used Photoshop for the animated element but most will use Animation Shop. This step is optional, only if you want to add animation to your tag. (I use PS to do my animations as they don’t appear as grainy once it is saved).
Filters Needed - Penta Dots and Crosses
Mask by Creative Desires 31 but you can use any. Save your mask to your mask folder.
I used the great work of ©SGH. You can find both the Tube and the Template I used HERE
I used this fabulous PTU Scrap kit by CBJ - Punked Up (Tagger Sized), you can purchase it HERE



Let’s get started

Open up a transparent canvas 550 x 550

Open the Punked Up Paper 16 or your choice of paper and minimise for use for the mask. Select your Foreground and locate the paper in the pattern. Select. Select your flood fill tool and fill the canvas with the paper. Select Layers – Load/Save Mask – Load Mask from Disk. Select your mask. I had the Invert transparency ticked, then merged group.

Open your template in Paint Shop Pro. Copy the original by holding the shift + D and now close the original. Now go to Image – Resize – make sure the box is ticked for resize all and resize by 90%.

Select your frames and re-colour to match your tube. I used Punked Up Paper 9 for frames.


Copy your tube and position on the layer below the frame, move it around to where you want it.

Select your Vertical rectangle frame and select the inside with your magic wand. Go to selections – modify – expand by 3 pixels.

Select your tube inside the frame and go to selections – invert – hit the delete button to remove excess tube.

Select Luminance (Legacy) in the blend mode. Then go to Effects – Plugins – Filters Unlimited – Penta.com and select Dot and Cross with default settings OK.

I used the circle and the long rectangle provided in the template but made my own for the bottom. Using the papers for the rectangle shapes but just changed the colour for the circle.

I re-coloured the frames around the templates using the papers from the Punked Up scrap kit, you can do this or you can colour them to match your tube or leave them as they are.

Copy your tube and paste to the canvas, reduce to 68% Mirror the tube and apply drop shadow.
I used V 2, H -2, O 70 Blur 2.00 colour Black

Add your elements as you desire and place your tube where you want it.

Merge your layers and save your tag as a PNG or as a JPG. If you want to add animation to your tag like I have, save your tag as a PSD file. Now go to your animation shop and open the file you just saved.

Open your animation in animation shop. Make sure your propagate paste is selected in the toolbar. Select your tag you want to add the animation to. Copy your tag for the required amount of frames you need to accommodate the animation file. Click on the duplicate button on the toolbar. If you want to know how to add animation to tags in Photoshop, there are tutorials available for these.

I duplicated the tag to four frames for the butterfly animation that I made from the elements in the Punked Up scrap kit. I made the Butterfly animation in Photoshop using the puppet warp and the burn tool.
This is not included in the kit as an animated element.

Once you have the required frames. Highlight all frames and select all by holding the CTRL key and A on the keyboard.

Go to the animation tube and select all. Then copy all frames. Take this to your tag and holding the CTRL key and E paste the animation on the tag where you want it to be.
While the tag is still highlighted, go to Animation – Frame Properties and set to 20 – Okay.

Now save your tag as an animation. Using the default settings.

Your tag is now finished.

I hope you enjoyed doing this tutorial.

More Posers

I made some more tubes.... This DAZ is adictive. I am determined to make more of these cuties but make them better each time :)  and make more of a variety for you to choose from.

I am so grateful for Melissa for introducing me to the program and the joy of creating my own tubes to share with those who are learning PSP or PS and want to use something that they can play with.

I am in the process of loading them to 4Shared so that if you want to use them you can. Thank you to René Kunert for helping me by colourising the Vampire Susie tube for me.  You are the bomb.

You can Download them Here

My try at Poser Art

I had a go at making some tubes in Poser.  Thanks to a very dear friend Melissa for helping me get set up rofl we had a blast working through skype and me showing her my screen with my web cam.

I thought I would show you my creations and if you want to use it for yourself, please keep the copyright information with the tube.




I have saved them in PNG format, all you have to do is click on the image you want to use and then just right click and Save As.  I have loaded them all to my 4Shared folder for easy download. You will be able to download the complete collection of Maise.

This is my newest Mask. I sure hope someone will be able to use it.

Template 02b



Here is my first ever template. I was looking for something different and saw a tag with this awesome looking frame so I went on a search and couldnt find it anywhere, so I created one for myself. Once I did that I thought, why not do a whole template for others to utilise. Why not, I sometimes use templates myself. So here it is. I hope you like it and can use it for yourself.

New Mask





I was sitting at my pc last night trying to make a tag for my forum and couldnt find the right mask, so thought "Why not make your own?" So that is what I did. I sat there and played and played until I got it right.


Im quite pleased with it myself actually :)

Hope for Jase


This is Jase! He and his family needs our help!!

Jase was born premature and has been struggling ever since. His family lives over 2 hours from the hospital that he is at and the distance has been taking a toll on the family. He has been diagnosed with a lung disease, heart murmurs, and recently it was discovered that Jase has a hole in all 4 ventricles of his heart :(

This CU Grab bag is packed with 11 never before released CU packs by Grunge & Glitter, Creationz by Jo, Gothic Inspirations, Created by Jill Scraps, Scraps by Rags, Kirsty’s Scraps, and Immortal Dreams…and it’s 100% CU!! It’s a combination of Tagger and Full size products but everything in it is totally awesome and so worth the $8!

Jase’s mom is a fellow designer and friend….Patty of Honored Scraps and the owner of Treasured Scraps!

100% of the money made from the sales of this CU Grab Bag will be directly donated to Patty to help her and her family in this time of need so that they can concentrate on helping their preemie Jase get better! The family needs money for gas and food and medical needs as they travel back and forth to their home and hospital and also as they prepare for the day when Jase does finally come home!

Click on the image to go straight to the item for purchase!!

Thank you so much!!
