PostHeaderIcon Drop Dead Sexy ~ Freya CT PTU

 photo dropdeadsexyfreyasm_zpsvug92bai.png

Here is a new tutorial I created for Art of Freya/Freya Langford-Sidebottom.  You can get her tubes at Art of Freya, and she has a Facebook page with the name Art of Freya, too!  Join us in the fun!  This tube has a pin up version, too.  The scrap kit I used is called Fright Night by Amy Marie.  You can find it at her store under Fright Night in the search bar.  Right now, it is on sale for a dollar.  I used papers 6, 13, and 17. I used masks gemsmask16, gemsmask34, and MakeAMaskGrungeCM02Slow2013.  Gems masks can be found at her blog.  She has a ton that I haven't kept up with, and the other is from Creative Misfits Creations. During this process, you can gradient glow/drop shadow at any point you want.  I will start from the last layer, even if that isn't how I create.  My way is crazy.  The last layer is paper 18 with gemsmask34.  Element 11 and 12 are the next layer.  I put each one where I wanted kind of on top of each other, duplicated, mirrored, and flipped. Merged them all down to one, so the two were all together.  Next layer, I have paper 17 with the MakeAMaskGrunge, and the next layer is paper 6 with the same mask.  Element 4 is the next layer.  I put it where I wanted it, duplicated, mirrored, merged those two, duplicated it, flipped it, and merged those together.  Paper 13 is the next layer with gems 16 mask.  Element 58 is the next layer.  I put one on the bottom to the left where I could see it, duplicated, flipped, mirrored, and merged them down.  On occasions, I move the flipped item more to where it can be see and/or where I want it. Element 54 is put next.  I put it where I could see part of it on both sides.  Element 99 is used twice in this.  It is the next layer place a little below the last element.  More seen on the right side.  Element 75 is next.  I have it on there about four times cause I put them at the bottom of the tag behind the white to be seen as I wanted them to, and I merged all of them together.  Element 109 was put in a corner like I wanted, duplicated, mirrored, merged, duplicated, flipped, and merged down, again. Element 110 is next, and it was done the same as the last element.  Element 3 is placed next with the duplicate, mirror, duplicate, flip, duplicate, mirror, and merge, again.  Element 5 was put to look like it is in the pentacle, duplicated, flipped, and merged.  I made sure it wasn't seen outside the pentacle.  Element 14, the pentacle, is in front of that.  The next layer is element 22 or 97 cause they look the same, but different sizes.  I just made sure it was a size that fit the bottom of my image.  Element 2 is next. I put it where I wanted, duplicated, flipped, and merged them down. Element 38 was sized smaller, and I put it in the left corner where I wanted it.  I put a sized differently element 99 in front of it.  From there, you have to have a tube, artist copyright, your watermark, a statement if you like, and a name.  Hope you enjoy the tutorial!  The kit has numerous elements and papers to create a ton of stuff!  Hugz~~  Karee

PostHeaderIcon Love Bites! CT for Freya ~~

 photo lovebitesfreyasm_zps63c35056.png
I am using the tube Romaine Snow by Freya Langford-Sidebottom.  You can find it here at Art of Freya.  She sells in her Etsy store, and she has great work!  The kit is a clearance kit by Amy Marie that you can find here at her store.  It is called Maggie.  Very cheap to make a V day tag with!  Ok, we start like always with gradient glow and/or drop shadow anywhere you want in all of this.  My image is usual size.  I did use some plug ins, but it is just bevel by alien eye candy 5.  Papers used are 14, 15, and 18.  Masks used are 400x450msk023LT, 400x450msk015LT, and AP_SparkleMask1.  All can be found on the page of Creative Misfits Creations.  Ok, I started my layers with papers.  Paper 15 is the bottom with the 015LT mask.  The paper 14 is in front of it with the 023LT mask.  Element 60 is next.  I placed one where I wanted, duplicated, mirrored, duplicated, flipped, duplicated, mirrored, and I merged all four layers down.  Element 7 is in front of that.  I placed it in a corner in a way I wanted it to be seen, duplicated, mirrored, duplicated, flipped, duplicated, mirrored, and I merged those layers down.  Element 14 is next just placed in the center.  Paper 18 is in front of that with the last mask.  Element 40 is next with it placed how I wanted, mirrored, and pulled down to where I wanted.  Element 59 is next with it mirrored and flipped.  I always merge them down to one layer.  Element 41 was placed in a corner how I wanted, duplicated, mirrored, duplicated, flipped, duplicated, mirrored, and merged all the layers down. Element 21 was put in the middle sized to fit.  Element 68 was sized to fit a side, duplicated, mirrored, and merged down.  Element 33 was placed on the side how I wanted, duplicated, mirrored, and merged down. I used the bevel plug in on it.  Element 53 was put on the top where I wanted, duplicated, flipped, and merged down.  Element 72 is next at the top how I wanted, duplicated, flipped, and merged down.  Element 9 is the last one.  I sized how I wanted, duplicated, mirrored, and merged down.  I colored the tube to match the background with the greyscale layers.  Put on my artist copyright, my number, my watermark, and my statement with a name.  Hope you enjoy!  Remember, any renditions can be sent to my email, even though that never seems to happen!  I, honestly, would love to see your stuff!  Hugz~~ Karee

About Me

Dismal, Kansas, United States
My name is Karee, and I am a single woman with no kids, except my cat, Onyx. I have been doing tags and PSP for quite some time. It has to be over 6 years, but I haven't kept track. It is what I do to relax and have fun. I run a tagging group on My New Boomer Place, but it is called Grade A Smartasses! Come over there to join in. Hoping to have more FTU and PTU tuts here for you all. Tongue n' Cheek Tagz means I put a statement on my tags, so mine have more than just a name on them! Hugz~ Karee Btw, I can't seem to get blinkies to work on my page for right now. I CT for AIL and follow a lot of blogs. As soon as I can get them to work, I will try to get the blinkies up to make them accessible.
