Sweet Valentine!


We got through January pretty good, in fact it went fast for me, and hardly any snow.

Save to your computer and then print and color! Or digitally paint it!

Here's a Facebook cover if you'd like to use it, tell everyone about it, share it, whatever!

Happy New Year!

The Year 2017

Well, it's almost here! Only a couple more weeks to go until we will be ringing in the new year! It's hard to believe it's 2017 already, this past year went so fast! Did the year just seem to fly by so fast for you?
I've been having fun creating sparkly, shiny graphics for my Etsy shop. Trying to perfect glossy fonts, shiny backgrounds, borders and overlays. It's been so much fun and I'm pleased with my results.

Here are some champagne or wine bottle labels that you can customize, how great is that for your party?

Here's a fun party invitation, easily customizable, and you can choose the style!

I love the satin look ribbon streamers, the sparkling bokehs, the realistic glitter effects and the stars backgrounds! It's fun to create such 'festive' graphics! They can be used all year long for all celebrations too.

CREATE your own lovely designs using my newest clip art, borders and backgrounds with festive sparkles and glittery, shimmery effects now! All can be found in my Etsy shop!

Metal Effects

Creating Metal Textures

A project that I've been working on here and there for a while now, is trying to perfect my own method of creating metal effects. I've had fun creating gold and foil effects but I especially love copper! It's been interesting trying to come up with the easiest way to create these effects, and each shape was created with just a little different procedure than the other.

Copper looks great against everything, especially dark colors. Satin smooth copper metal looks beautiful, as well as the hammered metal textures, but I really like the way oxidized copper looks!

Aquas, blues, greens, even purples can show up in oxidized copper. I think my pieces need just a bit more texture on the oxidized parts though, they look too smooth I think. 

So, it's a labor of love creating copper effect, an ongoing project that I really enjoy!
