  1. @Seerose & @lynxster4thank you for your encouraging comments. I have a few of these but this one is my best @welshblueyep, it has been a change away from the dark & moody style of years gone by. Too many to mention now. The succulent manips are my faves too because most of my garden is now succulents & cacti. I am an addict. 3 things that spin my wheels aside from hubby: succulents, yarn & my beloved rats. I have 15 of them now. Hypertufa! Wow! They are really awesome. I buy things from the op shop & drill holes with a diamond core bit.
  2. Thanks for the tute Welshy. I got a bit lost along the way & after 3 crashes trying to use the XML, I winged it. This image includes the torus tute which I totally love! Also as @toe_head2001pointed out, using the repeat wrap to make the background. Very happy with the outcome. @lynxster4very nice outcome! Does look a tad hot which could explain why the cowl is sooted up
  3. @Seerosewonderful works again & the colours are as always, fantastic! Well done!
  4. @Woodsy- fantastic work. A huge undertaking but so well worth it. My only criticism would be that the Saloon doors are a little bit too long. Having said that I'd still buy you a drink there The perspective is very dramatic too. It's like something is about to happen. Well done.
  5. Hi @DazzaDman, welcome to the forum. Please check the following: Is the object on its own layer & does not cover the whole layer? Do you have any selections active? If so, deselect. This one, is the thing that gets me most of the time - is the layer you want to work on the active one? Very easily overlooked Perhaps sending us a screenshot of what you are trying to do if none of these things helps
  6. @Seerose - fonts can be so useful esp. the flower ones now that we can make them really huge Thanks @lynxster4 I try to make sure they are. Good news! Spring has been used to advertise the Spring Festival's plant swap & sale in Toowoomba (the garden city) & Tiny Treasures garnered me 8 awesome enviable rare plants for creating a Facebook banner for a lady who sells cactus & succulents. Very happy! Here is a wallpaper of a plant called Fairies Washboard from my garden. Also used in the Mossy Ammonite from the TG thread.
  7. Thanks WB but I meant like when you do them. It says click & I click & it takes me there.
  8. Ok, let me know if this works please? I have attached the .dll for the Dents Classic. EdHarvey.Effects.Archives.DentsClassic.dll
  9. Oh dear. Yes, so true. What a shame. @Ego Eram Reputo next step? I mean I have it but we cannot publish it without permission.
  10. I really need to re-learn how to do links! Dents Classic can be found here.
  11. Congratulations @Pixey Well done @MadJik & @MJW Super entries & a great theme. Thnak you for hosting @toe_head2001
  12. PB won't load the image for me. Which is a shame because it looks like a great piece.
  13. The lily & the ship! Just WOW! Always beautiful work.
  14. Serves me right for being absent
  15. @AndrewDavid Tutes are a fabulous tool for helping us to learn & you did the Aston Martin justice.
  16. @lynxster4 super TGA examples! Very much liking the gemstone texts.
  17. LOvely new images & I saw chocolate too! The text image is really super shiny. Well done!
  18. So many excellent entries. Congratulations @Pixey @MadJik & @Woodsy Well done @MJW & @Maximilian Thank you for hosting duties @Pixey
  19. Double post! New artwork. Maples in Utopia. Our friend Harry lives on the shores of Lake Utopia. If I went to visit him we'd be having waffles & maple syrup - the real stuff The leaves are stock http://orig08.deviantart.net/c46e/f/2017/027/7/3/japanese_maple_leaf_by_shivali_lorekeeper-dawyvql.png The water drops is based on the tute by @MadJik. Part of the circles is based on the Bokeh Effect tute by Welshblue.
  20. I didn't know we had a choice & I like the Goodnight Nurse theme. Sure could be better contrast with some things but overall I find it easier to navigate than the default. Thanks @IRON67
  21. @Pixeyflower fonts are very useful. You can create nice design elements or even just use parts of them esp. now that we have much larger sizes to choose from.
  22. @lynxster4, I feel more relaxed now. Art has always helped me cope. Thank you so much @Seerose. Like you & love colour even if my art can be very dark at times. This new one again is colourful. I've working in the garden & there is so much going on even if it is supposed to be winter here. This one is called In the Spring. The black flower outlines are a font, the waves are Gradients Galore & Inner Shadow. Much layers & blurring.
  23. Thank you for your hard work Rick. Always very much appreciated.
