Tut: Pencil/Brush Tool to Create Dotted Lines

Ok, this is the last of this series. To watch the previous two, just go up to the Digi Tut menu option and check them all out there. This is just a short little post.  I am behind in lots of stuff, including blog hoping — even my PTI blog hop I’m still in process of cause I keep getting interrupted by the Jove. She’s been all about mom lately. No dad or M. Just mom. It’s flattering but goodness, I can’t even go pee without her screaming her head off… if she’s awake that is. I guess I can

Tut: Adding Dots – Shape + Brush Tool

Now folks, keep in mind that in Photoshop (or any software) there are many ways to achieve a certain result. What I usually show in my tutorials are the easiest way for me (and I don’t know all the Photoshop tricks available — I wish though) and I hope it helps you a tad bit. In this tutorial I used the Rounded Rectangle tool but really you can use ANY of the other shapes using this method. IF you already have the marching ants, maybe by using the magic wand tool for example, you can go straight to the path

Tut: Rounded Corners in Photoshop

Wow, it’s been awhile since I made a video tutorial, huh? Well, today I made three! I was suppose to just work half a day and then work out but uhm… I got lazy and so did the work half day but ended up sitting on my comfy chair and made three tuts. Here’s one… I still need to edit the two. With this method you can use it to pretty up your background paper, make a small tag, or create a banner for your blog. Lots of stuff! I can’t remember if Gimp or Elements have something similar but

Tut: Scalloped Edges

Woah, a tutorial!! It’s been a while, huh? This one’s an easy one. Basically it’s learning how to be cleverer than Photoshop, ha! I use this trick to outline a lot of stuff with my magic wand. I use this to create pieces for my KnK too (which I’ll share soon enough… the converting to different extensions is a bit challenging since there are different machines out there). I just dump a solid color (black) to the selected area, save it and import it to KnK to cut. Here’s a sample layout that I did. See the scalloped piece on

RAW Freebie

HI!!!! How’s your weekend? It’s great here. I had some yummy Korean yesterday and did a tiny bit of shopping. We went to a William and Sonoma store too to compare pots and pans. That’s our next big purchase. Hubby thinks the All-Clad is more realistic for me. The Le Creuset, however nice and well made it is, is just waaaaaay to heavy for me aka weenie arms. So we’ll see. Oh, we received our KitchenAid mixer early (if you’ve been wanting one get it NOW for $250 at Amazon for the 600 series!). Yeah!!! What a surprise, on a

Tut: Photoshop Styles

It’s been a while but here’s another Photoshop tutorial. The subject was an email request from one of you, I hope the video helps. My styles file size after saving the two styles: 3kb. I haven’t been playing much with digital and got clueless on what type of tuts to make. So thank you for the suggestion!! Not sure what the kids (one hubby, one child, and two fur babies) are doing. They left me alone to finish my real estate stuff but here I am blogging. Ok, this will be short, I want to finish so that we can
