Dollar Tree Owls

This template is really great for back-to-school crafts for kids and adults.  I created it by tracing around an owl that I bought from the Dollar Tree.   I then found some bottles with two different circular shapes to trace around to form eyes.  I made a beak and a hat for the owls as well.  To watch the process click the video below.

September Hues 3: Shades of Blue

Advertisements

I’m back this week (September 13-19, 2020) with shades of blue. I used various elements, papers, quotes, and blending modes on this one. I was inspired to use a photo of my grandmother. I always felt like she was a queen.

Like the color blue, my grandma symbolized trust, loyalty, wisdom, and faith. She knew how to calm situations. I really do miss her. Her memory lives on with all the great moments that made me smile. If blue is the color all the positive things mentioned, then I feel I have made a great choice in choosing that color for my project. I love how it intertwines with the ninth month of year.

I find it fascinating how September is revered to be the number of wisdom and magic, similar to the color blue. I felt it was appropriate to use this month and blue hues to demonstrate fun examples of their significance. My grandmother’s photo was a great instance. The scrapbook layout was really easy to construct. It doesn’t take much to get started.

Simply make sure you have a computer or laptop that can handle memory intensive software, such as Adobe Photoshop, and Corel Painter. I am not a computer expert, but when I spoke with one, I was advised to have at least 12GB of Random Access Memory (RAM) an intel i5 processor with 64-bit support, 2 GHz or faster, and a graphics card such as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 or better. A decent printer would also help to capture your beautiful images. Laser printers are excellent choices for their crisp pictures, although they are typically more pricey. However, inkjet provides great images as well and are a good choice at a more affordable range.

Use your favorite editing software to get started. Find beautiful images, papers, styles, brushes, patterns, and more to design a marvelous piece of digital art. They are very plentiful online, including Freebies found here on Multimedia Crafts Digital, Etsy , and Pixel Scrapper. You don’t have to limit your ideas to just virtual creations. You can print out papers, embellishments and more to create a hybrid work of art. Simply acquire beautiful images from sources like Graphic45 , Prima Marketing, and Tim Holtz from Amazon.com. You can die cut, stamp, fussy cut, paint, layer, and do all manner of mixed media altering to many types of materials.

Just have fun with it. Explore your inner creativity. I hope this article was helpful. Thanks for viewing and happy crafting!
