Beware October Tag!

I was shopping at Michael's the other day as I needed a few art supplies and I saw their Halloween stuff, which got me in the mood for Halloween.  Halloween (Fall) is my favorite time of year!  I saw many things I would have liked to have bought, but alas I had to control myself as it wasn't in the budget.  I sure hope they have them when I can go back.  So to wind up and get ready for it, I made a new tag.  Another great tutorial from Beth-Ann and an awesome tube by Screaming Demons and very cool scrap kit Dark Night Of The Witch.  I've really been learning a lot from blogs like Beth-Ann's and others.  I really need to update my blog and put some links to some of these great blogs!  I'm really starting to get confident in my abilities to work with PaintShop and designing graphic art.  It's a whole new door opening up to me in the art world.  Next will be web design.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and happy tagging, creating art, painting, drawing, writing, cooking and whatever else it is that brings you joy!

I'd Pin That v. 2 Flowers!

I recently came across a new blog, which I love and you can find here.  What I loved so much is that they have a weekly Pinterst link up party and this week is about flowers.  Doesn't everyone love flowers?  I know I do.  I'm planning on having my own cutting garden next year and all ready have the plan in mind.  Here are some pictures of flowers from my yard.  I hope you enjoy them. 

I also love to create floral arrangements and make flowers from paper and other items around the house.  In my search for a new tutorial I found a wonderful one on Martha Stewart and I hope you will check it out.  Just click on the link above.  Here's a picture of the completed flower.

I hope you'll check out my pins at Pinterest.  Thank you for stopping by and feel free to become a follower and my link to Pinterest is above or on the side.

I'm on a roll!  I was playing around with the computer some more last night as I couldn't sleep and decided to make a new tag.  I used a template from Amy & Leah's blog, template #15 and the tube I used can be found here and is by the lovely artist Jennifer Janesko.  I really love her artwork.  I didn't use any one particular scrap kit, just a bunch of different items from a multitude of kits I have.  I'm thinking of maybe picking up a new kit sometime soon and plan to make a tag just from that.  As I get to know my Paintshop Pro better I plan to make some tutorials, hopefully soon.  I've also started looking into picking up Corel's Painter 12 and Corel's Draw Graphics Suite X6, they can be found here and you can download free trials of both software.  I hope you enjoy the tag.

Have a great weekend!

Life's Crazy!! Finally Made a New Tag.

This year has been so extremely cray, can't even begin to explain all that has happened.  Have you ever just been so overwhelmed by everything going on that you just wanted to hide away from the world?  Well that's how I've been feeling lately.  Our family has been especially hit with a lot of family illness and death.  I just keep praying that things will get better soon for everyone.  Cancer has been the major issue for our family this year.  It's such a horrible disease and it touches so many lives.  It's been very hard with me as it brings up so many memories of my father's battle with it, along with the 20th anniversary of his passing slowly approaching.

The last 3 weeks I have been battling with a cold/bronchitis so I figured while I am lying here trying to get better I'd haul out the computer and make a new tag.  I found a great tutorial at Disturbed by Gaby and a great scrap kit (PTU) Night Life by Gemini Creationz here.  The tube I used is by Angela Newman and was purchased at PSP Tubes Emporium but they are no longer in business so I am not sure where Angela is currently selling her tubes.  I hope you like the tag.

Have an awesome week!
