Long time no see, Imageready!

Lately I have been wanting to get back into the Imageready ballgame. I had enjoyed myself so much all these years ago that I decided to dust off my old version of Photoshop CS2 and Imageready. The newer versions of Photoshop come without imageready and I’m not ready to learn a trick I already know in another manner.

This is what I came up with:
A Disturbed icon and a NCIS Signature

Sleepyhead

I’m at home with a burnout at the moment and this gives me the opportunity to watch NCIS from the beginning in all its glory. In one of the episodes of season one, Gibbs fell asleep under his boat and was woken up by Tony calling him on the phone. That sleepyhead of his was just SO adorable.It was too adorable not to share.

Helping out a friend…

and creating something of Mark is any girls w… DREAM, amirite? lol. Jeri, one of the friends I have made through my Charming Harmon facebook group, had been wanting to learn how to use Paint Shop Pro for like ages. Just a couple of days ago she took the plunge and bought PSP 2018. It looks quite different from the version I use (PSP X7), but in the end it all worked basically the same.

So I walked her through some fairly easy steps and we came up with this:
This is Jeri’s version:

and this is my version:

Not bad overall, right? I was pretty proud of what my friend accomplished with zero knowlegde of any graphic software.

[DRAWING TIPS AND TRICKS] Blending with colored pencil

Since I’m a very creative person (or so I’d like to think anyways) I’m always trying new stuff. Today I want to share a videotutorial with you about blending with coloured pencils. Since last saturday I’m the proud owner of a magnificent full set of Derwent Coloursoft pencils and I’m having a blast watching youtube tutorials and trying things out. It seems only fair that I share the video’s that work best for me with you as well.

Featuring today is a video made by Pencilstash, about 6 different blending techniques, She teaches in a very calm manner and has a nice voice to listen to.
Note: You can blend with any kind of colored pencil, even the cheap ones! It just takes time, patience ad a LOT of practise.
Enjoy!

Working extra shifts

Not much exciting has been going on on this blog for a while now. That is all because I’m working extra shifts, and it doesn’t seem to slow down for the next two to three months. It is what it is, lol. I have been working on a crochet blanket and on some sort of memory book for my boyfriend who lives in America, so I have been creative :D.

Hope to be able to update soon!

Lol :D

Since it’s almost halloween I figured I’d change my website background. It’s fugly as hell, but I’m having so much fun here 😀 😀 😀
