Hi dear Readers,

I had a request from Julie Jann (Cutie Pie Scraps) to do an Soft Art action for embellishments. She is a great designer, visit her blog (see below her freebie)!!

So I did!! The good news is that this action is also licensed for CU4CU. So designers can do unique designs with this easy CLIPART to Watercolor action.

You only need Photoshop CS2 up to CC and a PNG image with high resolution. The action works with sizes up to 2500 pixels. If your image is bigger, it will automatically reduced to 2500 pixels. That is good size for embellishments.

Visit my store EXCLUSIVE AT CUDIGITALS - CU4CU Photoshop Action Clipart to Watercolor.






And I also have a cute Kit with 40% off - see it here EXCLUSIVE at MyMemories -







Visit Julie Jann's blog, she did cute a freebie with my action here


And you can also visit the FREEBIE section at MyMemories site with many wonderful samples and creative ideas to make your memories last with beautiful creations!! HERE

Happy Day!!

Photo to Watercolor Painting Tip

Hi, dear readers.
Olá minhas amigas leitoras!

I am back! Let's take the dust off my blog with wonderful inspiration, ideas and new techniques!

I'm excited to share with you my new SoftArt background paper action! Fascination Watercolor

With only one image you can achieve dozen of different papers coordinating with your color palette. Play part one in order to set the colors of your choice. 

Play part two as many times as you want. Each time a different effect and color will show up. Add other brushes to create unique work! Very easy to create beautiful watercolor effects! 

EXCLUSIVE at CuDigitals! 





Se vc gosta do efeito pintura na foto, aqui tenho uma dica de um programa comprado. É uma solução bem simples para quem procura um efeito rápido, sem muito trabalho.
Além disso eu gosto de usar a minha action - Photo Doing Art - antes de tudo para criar um fundo bem criativo e soft, mas também pode-se usar recursos do Photoshop.

Minha amiga/ aluna Marilú fez um teste com essa action da Belle Fleur e não usamos nada além da própria action da Belle Fleur e a textura que vem junto.

a foto original:


O passo a passo em inglês aqui abaixo:

Today I have a tip, converting photo to watercolor painting in Photoshop using an action from Belle Fleur Textures. It is not easy to find a good tutorial doing this. Many are free and you can try it (as I already did.) But this one I found good, and recommend, even this is a paid one. You can buy it here


Open your image (or save this image here below)

Open Photoshop and cut the image to you choice. See my cut below and I added some interesting color paint drops with my brushes. DUPLICATE LAYER.

Then choose Blur - Gaussian Blur to give the photo a blurred effect. 

Put the cats back in a new layer back, using layer mask and with a soft brush show the cats by erasing the original background..


Then I used a wonderful tutorial with action, from Belle Fleur Textures. She has all what you need inside this pack. Comes with a wonderful texture.

Important: I'm not affiliate partner or earning anything giving you this tip. Yesterday I bought this tutorial and found that is pretty easy to create basic watercolor effect. Not for big images or fine art, but it is very basic to do a good work.

This here is my final image, save it if you like it!


Thanks for reading and 
Happy Scrapping!

Featured Designer e Diagramação de Fotolivros: Capas

Hi all, today I am the featured designer at the very great blog Dcontent from Dunia Nalu. See my interview and like the Dcontent page here
View my Interview here 

Hoje fiquei super honrada com o convite da Dunia Nalu do blog Dcontent para dar uma entrevista sobre meus papéis estampados que crio para o digital scrapbooking! Quem quiser saber mais detalhes, veja aqui





Meu mais novo pack de papéis, o Gardenia:

São papéis com efeitos delicados de pintura e suave textura, perfeito para os fundos de fotolivro ou mesmo para as capas de fotolivros. Veja um layout exemplo:

Diagramação de Fotolivros: CAPAS

Eu gosto muito de utilizar técnicas mistas de sobreposição e efeitos em camadas com máscaras para criar algumas páginas e capas de fotolivros:



Para aprimorar as técnicas de efeitos de pintura em layouts eu fiz um curso de sketch usando o Photoshop com a artista e designer Cilenia Curtis 
 Veja como transformei uma foto em um desenho aqui:

E, usando a mesma técnica fiz a capa do fotolivro de um casal amigo:


E recentemente, fiz um layout usando como fundo o meu papel da coleção Painted Emotions e um template da designer Anna Aspnes. O pequeno fotógrafo abaixo é o nosso sobrinho-neto!

Happy Scrapping!!!

    Painting with Digital and a Blog Hop Freebie: Happy Easter!


    Meninas (e meninos) olá a todos!! 

    Finalmente estou conseguindo colocar no meu blog algumas dicas que desejo compartilhar com vcs!! Abaixo eu pintei um coelinho, que primeiro era um briquedo de pelúcia que fotografei e depois pintei no Photoshop usando técnicas diversas.  Principalmente o smudge tool (veja foto abaixo).  Experimente e poste suas dúvidas aqui que eu respondo!!!

    E mais abaixo temos um Blog Hop - Freebie! O meu coelhinho pintado está incluído. 

    Hi all,

    I am still in love with the digital painting features of Phostoshop CS5 and CS6. This time I tried to put together some mixed techniques on this cute easter bunny.


    First of all, I had a plush bunny that I photographed. I used some brushes from Jack Davis (Wow). Visit his facebook page HERE, and get some freebies or buy his painting curse at Creative Live.

    But this time, in my painting sample bunny here, I used the smear feature with the new bristel brushes:
    The smudge tool - with sample all layers and finger painting activated.

    Choose brush and proprieties and set it as follow:


    Set the color in your color palette to the color of your choice and paint with little strokes in the layer above your original drawing.

    This painted bunny is ready and is here with my Happy Easter mini. Easter 2014!
