Tilda Kindle Cover / Тилда калъфче за Kindle


Тържествено ви представям моето предколедно творение - калъфче за kindle. 
Това е втория ми такъв, но първия сниман, така че в скоро време ще ви го покажа. Искаше ми се да направя хубав коледен подарък и да не е клиширано и скучно, а и се сетих за тези платчета - се роди идеята за хубавата цветна дрешка за книжка.

Платчетата са на Tilda, както вече предполагам сте се досетили. Тази цветова комбинация на мен лично много ми лигна присърце и няма да излъжа ако кажа че се разделих трудно с него, но той сега радва една млада мама.


Ето го облечен и на манекен :) Вече е подарен и може да му се порадвате и вие !

Бебешко и момчешко

Дойде ред да ви покажа подаръка на един малък сладур - много "мъжки", но неизменно присъстват и бебешките закачливи елементи. Албумчето е изцяло изработено от бирен картон и дизайнерски хартии. Състои се от 7 листа, а в някой от тях има джобчета с етикети с допълнителна възможност за бележки и снимки. Дискът с фотосесията на малкия господин също ще намери своето заслужено място в албума.
Печатът на корицата е от страхотен бебешки сет на Stampendous - Baby Balloon, страхотен и да оцветяване и за paper-piecing, както и с всевъзможни приложения за бебешки и детски проекти, а това ми допада най-много :).

How to correct photos with Photoshop in easy steps / Лесни стъпки за корекции на снимки в Photoshop в


We all love posts with perfect pictures but it can be a real challenge to take ones if you don't have proper light or a professional skills or camera. Even if you’ve taken a good photo, chances are it can be improved or it needs to be adjusted to work in a collection.
I prefer to use daylight for my artwork but sometimes it's a hard task too. At the evening you can use light tent for product photography or you can make one by yourself too, there are many tutorials in the internet. But the mean problem how to correct your images is still on.
At the end you'll see that it's not necessary to become a professional photographer to make good shots. The only thing you need  is a right editing program.
I'm going to show you how to do basic image corrections in Photoshop in some simple steps. I use the full version but there is a light one too. It's easy to use and you don't have to install it just start it.

Images for above pictures before and after editing.



Step 1.
Start the program and open the chosen image from file menu . I'm going to use this card because of it's vibrant coloring.


Step 2.
Open the palettes that we are going to use - adjustments, layers, history, properties / if they are missing on  the right side on the screen/. Find them in window menu, mark and they will appear on the right place.
Go on the Adjustments panel and create a New Levels Adjustments layer by clicking the level icon.
Then on the screen will see a Level histogram.

The Levels Adjustments use to correct the tonal range and color balance of  an image by adjusting brightness, contrast and tonal range. The only thing you have to do is to specify the location of shadow, highlights and mid-tones in a histogram. It'll help you better to represent tones.
Use Adjustment Layers whenever possible, because they can be changed later if you don't like the result for example.
The Levels tool can move and stretch brightness levels in a histogram using three main components: a black point, white point and mid-tone slider.
Moving the right slider brings in the light, the left gives a little more contrast but most important is the middle one because it controls the most of the vibrant colors in the image.
Step 3.
Let's use my favorite image adjustment toolCurves for the final touch.

Go on the Adjustments panel again and create a New Curves Adjustments layer by clicking the curves icon.
At the beginning the curves box opens as a straight line because you haven’t made any changes yet. That means that the brightness values before and after are the same. You will effect a change by changing the shape of the curve.
The points from left (bottom) to right (top) affect: blacks, shadows, midtones, highlights, and whites. By altering the position in these regions will affect the corresponding tonal range of your image. Leaving the line in the center will leave the tones unchanged.
Note that you can’t increase contrast in one region without decreasing it in another. The curves tool redistributes contrast.
Step 4.
And at the end  have to crop the image with the proper size to create focus on the right detail. Use crop tool from Tools Palette on the left. Click on the tool icon to select that tool and then select an area of an image and discard everything outside this area.

Skin: FS2,FS6,FS9,HB1,CR2,CR5

Hat: GB1-3,GB5,GB8,BT2-5,CR5,CR9,DR3,OR2,OR3
Clothes: BT2-5,CR5,CR6,CR9,DR3,GB8,OR2,OR3,CG2,CG4,DG3,Blender
Ballons: BT2-5,BT9,BG2,GB1-3,GB8,OR2,OR3,CR5,CR6,CR9,CR11,CG2,CG3,CG4,DG3
Floor: BG1,BG2,Blender
Now see the huge difference between unedited shot and the final one ready to be posted! :)

Червената ябълка / The Red Apple


We all love to color people and I think it's very important to express the facial features right and much more realistic.  There are so many great tutorials and tips how to improve your coloring skills. I find the perfect one for my purpose and use it to make the girl's face expressive and representational.  I made a new card following Adding Facial Features by Lis Murphy. She created perfect step-by-step instructions and magnificent card.I have colored this clear stamp with Spectrum Noir markers.I followed the steps in the tutorial and first outlined the face with TN3, then added shape to form the nose, eyebrow and cheeks. I don't prefer strong definition of the facial features so I blended the colors on the face a little bit for slight shadows and more realistic view. When finished the entire face, I repeated the cheek area. For smoother tan I used the brush nibs of the markers.
Here is the Spectrum Noir markers color list:

Coloring Transparent Wings/ Оцветяване на прозрачни крила


We all love coloring fairy creature. That's the reason why I decided to show you a step by step coloring tutorial on how to create a transparent fairy wings and make your image much more realistic.

I choose this very detail digital stamp by Sara Burrier because it's perfect to show you how to do a transparent wings. You'll notice that artist draw the wings looks like they are transparent too.

First of all, you have to color your image and leave the wings completely blank.
The most important rule that you need to follow when you are coloring something transparent especially wings is that you only color inside the transparent area and have to leave a white gap close to the border of it because the white line will make it looks like it's shining and the transparent objects always have some kind of  the sheen to them.

I mark with a pencil the imaginary lines of  the fairy hair which is behind because if my wings are transparent I have to see the hair too. I need to add some details to the hair to match with other side of the image so I'm going to use lighter hair colors - GB2, Blender and darker ones - GB8, BG4 to define the hair a little bit more. Remember this part of the hair must be lighter then the other one.
Once the hair is ready it's time to start with the wings- the one that's over the hair and do over the area that want to looks like a transparent and do not color all the way to the border of the wing. I add some details like I did with the hair and gently blend the wing colors and hair ones.
I do the same thing with the other one but now I have two wings which are overlapping each other so I need to differentiate which one is standing in front of the other. The overlapping part of my fairy wings have to be darker just because they are transparent and the other thing that I can do is to add a shadow around the front one.

The here is the complete color list:
Skin: TN3, TN7, FS2, FS4, FS6, FS9, BG4
Hair: GB2, GB4, GB8, GB9, GB10, EB6, BG4
Dress: BG2, BG3, BT6, BT7, GT1, GT2, GT3, DG3, CG3, CG4
Hearts: PP3, CR4, CR6, BG2, BG4
Wings: BG1, BG2, BG4, GT1, GT3, BT7, Blender

I hope you enjoyed this fairy coloring tutorial !


´the part of the frontal one that overlap the back one is .
To make it clear  which oare overlapping each other

make it clear /
Now the two are already colored.

I need to make it clear which one is frontal because they are two wings overlapping each other.

 We are losing a little bit of definition because we have two wings which are overlapping each other so we have to workout which wing is standing  in front of the other s owe can do a shadow around the wing.
