Tut: Clipping Mask

Hello hello! Today I have a little video tutorial to accompany the above digital page. I needed to test my equipments before the semester starts and make a couple new videos for my students. Also, it’s been a while since I did one and I thought a little warm up wouldn’t hurt. I didn’t have time to zoom in and all that but I think this tutorial’s fine without having to zoom in. Viewing on YouTube in full-screen mode is best if you can’t see it well here on my blog. Enjoy the video and hope you like my 5

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. httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uihdMTxpnMM 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

Tut: Bunny Ears Ribbon Tying

Ok gals, some of you requested a video on how to tie the bunny ear bows. Well I’m not sure if it’s the proper way but it’s how I do my ribbon tyings.  It’s not the best video because I did it really quick but I hope the visual in the video can help you tie your ribbons better. httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6e9svi6bT0s I never cut my ribbon before I am done tying. I think I waste less ribbon doing it this way. If I have too long of an edge I’d take my bow apart and shorten it and redo the process

Tut+Freebie: Recoloring in Word 2007

Ok peeps, I’ve been on Splitcoast this week and it seems like people are getting more and more into digital stamps (I don’t get on SCS much cause when I do I tend to shop more… the Tools and Products section ALWAYS gets me). This is great, more options for you AND quicker access! If you’ve been visiting my blog you probably know I have a video on how to print a digital stamp/image in Word. A few posts ago I posted my handwriting with a Word (.doc) file in case you want to just quickly print the file out

Tut: Adding Dots – Shape + Brush Tool

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiDs3O1fyKI 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

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. httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBFrMPJ2KPY 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
