World's Greatest . . .

ZEROOOOOOO!   When I was a kid, my dad would raise my arm up in the air and say in his announcer voice, "Ladies and Gentleman!  I'd like you to meet THE. WORLD'S. GREATEST. ZEROOOOOOO!"   When I used to tell my kids this story, they would say something like "ahhhh, mom.  That's so mean.  Why would he do that?" etc.  It never once dawned on me when I was a kid that it could have any meaning other than I was something special and wonderful and he made me giggle.  Now that my kids have raised the question, I've wondered about it . . . what the meaning was for him, etc.    My dad was not big on bragging or showing off . . . very humble and preached humility . . . . could have been another way to do that.  He could've just wanted to make me laugh.   I don't know.

Anyway, I may in fact be the World's Greatest Zero, but I had fun with the newest collaboration among the designers of MischiefCircus.com.  We each put together a kit with the theme of  the World's Greatest.   I left mine rather open ended with lots of blank prize medals and trophies and sashes.  (everything below is in one kit)

Cut apArt sheets!

I felt like splashing a bunch of color around so here is my first set of  Cut apART (get it?) sheets! Print them and cut out strips, shapes, and borders for collage work.  Or use them as they are for journaling or stationery backgrounds.  I included two solid sheets that you can use on top of the patterned papers, too.  Digitally, there is all kinds of fun to be had!  Clip the papers to the shapes png sheet and you have lots of useful bits.  But my favorite thing to do?   In your digital program, lay these sheets on top of one another and play with the layer styles to create entirely new magic!!!

This preview shows the smaller sized versions on printable jpg collage sheets.   The gray shape sheet comes in printable jpg format and png format to make it easier to use digitally.

Exciting news is coming later this month so keep checking back!

Catching up!

I have fallen a bit behind on my blog . . . it used to be such a busy place with almost daily posts and the last couple of years I'm lucky if I get here once a month to post.  I don't really know what keeps me from posting more and I find myself unsure of what to do with things here.   I keep thinking I'm going to take a couple of days off and visit all of the beautiful blogs I used to visit every week.  I've been wondering how the blog world has changed over the years . . . FB and Instagram and Pinterest have changed things I'm sure.  But there is something lovely about following someone's posts in the order they intended, in the way their own personal stories unfold.  I miss that.

Well, I have 2 new image kits to share . . . one has been out for a few weeks and one just released last night.  I'm slowing down just a wee bit with kits to pursue some new avenues in creating . . . not sure where I'll end up with any of them but the research has brought new ideas, however subtle, into my kit making too.  Everything's an influence I suppose.

Last night I released my Delightful kit . . . it's on sale for a limited time.  It's got over 140 individual png and jpg files AND 10 printable jpg collage sheets.  It's got 18 papers in 2 sizes and some gorgeous images my friend Jo Anne shared with me.  Oh!  And if you go to the shoppe listing (linked to the pictures below), you can see some A M A Z I N G samples from my Creative Team.  They really knocked this one out of the park.

Before the Delightful kit, I released Another Mash Up kit . . . I had so much fun creating the first Melange Mash Up kit, I had to try another one.

I have another handy little kit in the shoppe, Folds and Wrinkles!
This is a texture overlay kit for digital artists.  You can see in the samples below how you can use these jpg overlays in a layer over another layer to give the bottom layer some wrinkles and folds.  Depending on the texture and brightness and pattern and color of the bottom layer, you will have to play with these texture layers to find the best style (i.e. overlay, soft, multiply, hard light, etc.)

You can click on the previews below to find the kit in the shoppe!
