I learned something new this week and am I thrilled, oh! you don't realise. I was like a kid in a toy shop. LOL. Dawn by Design has a tutorial that I followed and have achieved making my own background with "splatter" brushes and an egg shape, hers has a butterfly as an example, but of course once I knew how to do it, I had to try different. I used the PS brushes using colour dynamics, so that there were different colours each time I added the "misty brush" I bought from DBD, (well I had to do it properly didn't I?) as well as the shape dynamics Dawn showed how to use in her tutorial. So all you girls who are struggling with PS, go HERE and learn something "simple" to play with. I can see me doing more of this. I used the "brush" only to do the green area, love the effect. Then to play more I added texture by adding a "cross stitch" effect PS Action from Atomic Cupcake, which I'm not sure is still available. To finish the card, I decoupaged the Rabbit and the basket added glitter to the eggs and the sentiment, oh! yes that is from Summertime Designs, added 3D gloss to her eyes.
|maybe? you can see the eggs background clearer here?|

splatter brushes and the cross stitch I added to the background.
About Elizabeth Dulemba, you know I love her images, so thought I would add a link, seeing as I use her images a lot and they are all free and also, you may not know about her.
This is from her latest Newsletter, she has had a couple of children, using her images, enter them into the Gallery, Aw! Bless them. AND you get a free image with every newsletter. Go on get the children colouring her images :)
CALL FOR ART!
Have you or your children colored or created something using one of my Coloring Page Tuesday images? If you post it on a blog, you can also post it to my gallery and maybe I'll share your creation next week!
(It doesn't have to be a card - I like 2-year-old scribbles too!)
