  1. I didn't know that either Thanks BB for the fix & @welshbluefor asking the question.
  2. Pixey, it is a very pretty piece of jewelry. Great lustre on the pearls with the glittery, shiny metal. I wish it were real. I'd love to wear it. Well done!
  3. Happy birthday! Wishing you everything good & of course no socks. Goes without saying
  4. I think Edwardian is an old one: Once you have completed the tute, @AndrewDavid, resize it down by 25% So if you want to use it for a sig, then start with 2000 x 600 & then reduce it down by 25% & that should be fine to use as a sig & you should not get the dreaded jaggies.
  5. Thank you everyone for the lovely birthday wishes. I've been rather absent lately. My Mum is quite unwell & takes up a lot of my time. Sadly, I have become more of a lurker than an active forumer. Thank you again for all the lovely wishes! ?❣️
  6. Thanks BoltBait! Easy to use. It will come in very handy for me
  7. So happy to hear you are on the road to recovery. Amazing work by your surgeon.
  8. Yes, I agree with @lynxster4Very pretty!
  9. A very Happy Birthday Seerose! May all of your wishes come true on your special day.
  10. Yes, the date threw me too. Mother's Day is Sunday 13 May 2018 here in Australia. What a great mum! Your artwork is truly frameworthy I have framed some of mine & given them to my mum & step-mum. Others I have used for cards or book covers. Hopefully you will use more of your awesome art for making the world that much prettier. I'd love to see the finished room. @lynxster4the Pearls & Roses is just awesome! I'd hang those up too!
  11. Ah I see the SPAIN now I see a bit of a blip thing in the very centre of the ASpain one. Oooh the second one is so nice. Love those shapes & colours!
  12. I can see the artifact in the middle but not the letters I do like the colours & shapes though!
  13. Realistic images I have never been fond of creating. Therefore I don't enter but support others by voting. OOTF rules - being realistic images - is very hard for most people. As for trace & colour comments, this is probably exactly why there are so few entries. I have seen the PDN file Pixey was working on. Technically challenging is an understatement. Those that have managed to create something realistic, are to be applauded.
  14. Congratulations to all! What fabulous entries! Such skill & imagination
  15. Out of rep points but yep, agree. I remember the PMs too. We are of an age where we appreciated the time it takes to craft things & not into instant gratification. I wore red patent leather shoes (NOT stilettos - too old for that) & matching handbag to my son's wedding. I'd love Pixey's shoe though
  16. I've heard this before...there is a reason Pixey was voted Queen of Paint.NET. Pixey's work really is that good. I've seen very few artists who can create a realistic image without a reference image. Have you seen the amount of layers that she used? My guess is that some had even been merged. The way Pixey has worked is very valid & I work that way too sometimes. It is a fabulous shoe & image. I enjoyed looking at the different layers & marvelled at her skill. Well done Pixey!
  17. Yep, a really great image! Love those colours!
  18. As always you've captured the emotion so well. There is a lot going on in the image. Very nice work with the cobwebs on the text. The butterfly is a bit jaggy on the edges which is fairly appropriate for fibromyalgia unfortunately. Well done with the textures & the colour - gotta love that! Very sorry to hear that it's been giving you such grief. I sure hope it lets up soon. You do the space scenes very well. Love to see more from you.
  19. What lovely fish! Incredible work! This would make a beautiful brooch or necklace.
  20. These three are just superb! So solid & they have that real glass look to them.
  21. @Pixeythe heart is especially good. Lovely the way the light shines underneath it. The paperweight is also fabulous work. Your flower theme is great - must be getting close to spring for you guys?
  22. Beautiful work Seerose! What a lovely work with the waterlily. Mine flowered again in the fishpond. It is pink like the ones you like so much
