Sisters with Attitude and Craft Attitude

Hello everyone!

I'm excited to announce the Sisters with Attitude project will be shared over the next 2 weeks on the Craft Attitude website and Facebook page.  Sisters with Attitude is a project created by Trudi Sissons of Two Dresses Studio.  She pulled together this project to feature my Tumble Fish Studio (TFS) images (available at DeviantScrap.com), my Tumble Fish Studio Creative Team's artwork, and the incredible products from Craft Attitude.  Most of the TFS Creative Team made art pieces using Craft Attitude art film for the first time to participate in this project and the results were amazing. 

Be sure to visit the Craft Attitude website and Facebook page (linked above) every day October 14- October 27 to see new artwork from the TFS Creative Team and get inspired to try some Craft Attitude art film yourself!

I first heard of Craft Attitude back in January 2012 at the Craft Hobby Association convention here in  Los Angeles.  I had to have some as soon as I saw it and then wrote an article for Deviant Scrap's zine we had at the time, The Deviant Muse.  I thought I'd share that tutorial (c.summer 2012) with you here too.  You may notice in the photos in the article, when Craft Attitude first launched it was called "Kodak Shoe Art Film" but has since changed its name to Craft Attitude.  It IS the same product.   This article was for a summer issue of The Deviant Muse, but no matter the season, you'll find a million ways to play with Craft Attitude.


Though I've had a great time playing with Craft Attitude films, I'm still rather inexperienced with it.  You can find tons of tutorials, ideas, and information on the Craft Attitude website so be sure and stop by!

New Swap and New Kit

Hello everyone!

I have a new digital kit out tonight.  This one is for digital artists.  I am always looking for ways to add a little more dimension to my digital collages, a little more interest. This kit includes some of my handy dandy tricks I use in my own work all the time. There are 13 digital overlays you can place over or in your digital pieces.

Be sure to play with blending modes. In the samples preview I used the overlays on 13 versions of the same work. I used blending modes such as "color burn", "overlay", "multiply", "lighten", and "soft light" depending on what I wanted for each piece. You can even use them as clipping masks in some cases and attach pattern or texture.

And, don't forget, YOU CAN CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE OVERLAYS. You do not have to keep them in the color I've included here. I just started with a color because it's easier to adjust the hue/color when you start with something other than gray, white, or black. Also, I usually work overlays like these into my layouts/artwork between other layers, not just on top. Sometimes I put them on top but not usually. It depends on the project.

This kit includes 13 12" x 12" digital overlays - some are in jpg format and some are in png. *Note: Art samples shown in the preview are not included in the kit.

Also, there's a new ATC swap I'm hosting at DeviantScrap.com . . . (picture linked to forum thread)

We'd love to have you play along!  All mediums and experience levels welcome.
