BBQ Grill PSP Tube Element

The other day I was creating a summer time banner/tag set for a Forum Redecoration Contest at Creative Addictions and realized how many backyard bbq scrapkits were not made readily available.
So I created my own BBQ Grill and am offering it up for Free download.
The only thing I ask when downloading and using my tubes is that you leave the file names in check and when sharing...please share ONLY the link to my blog...NOT the actually items themselves...Thank you very much.
And if you ever find that the links are not working...please do not hesitate to contact me and I will fix them for you.

Here is the preview of the Grill:

Here is what I used it on:

And here is where you can download it HERE.
P.S. The "smoke" is on a separate layer so you can choose to add your own if you wish.

Big Animated Bubbles

Hello! I'm back with more animated bubbles for you guys! I realized that there were hardly any really good big, clear, transparent animated I found some...and animated them!
So I take credit for creating the animation...NOT creating the bubbles.
This is what they look like:

This is what I used them in...The Preview didn't turn out quite as good as I thought it would...

...and you can download them HERE.
Thank you and Enjoy!

Fun with PSP's Kaleidoscope Effect (Mini Tut)

Hello all! I decided to post a "How To" Tut for everybody to practice with as I am getting ready to write my first tutorial that will be set in the Creative Addictions Exclusive Members Tutorial section. Which means, in order to be able to work that tut, you will need to be a member of Creative Addictions, which is a super-fun forum group with lots of tutorials and psp goodie bags and challenges and contests. So...with that let's get started. I use the version PSPX2. This feature works with any version of PSP, however and is very easy to use and you can get very creative with it. First, you open up your image in PSP. If you are using a tube, you can easily create an image, like I have by simply taking your tube and pasting it as a new layer on your new canvas and using Mura Meister>Copies>Wallpaper>Rotate set at 20 and Voila! Then go to Effects>Reflection Effects>Kaleidoscope and then just kinda play with the settings until you find something you like... Here's my example: And this is what I came up with after using the wonderful artwork of ©Caron Vinson which I had purchased at CILM a few years back (but you can find her at CDO estore now). This makes wonderful backgrounds and is very fun, easy and versatile to play with! I made this forum set out of it for my Creative Addictions Siggy Swap partner, Carolyn! Let's see what you can come up with! Have a great day! ~Karen
