MIA...

Sorry guys I've been MIA for the last two days. Things are kind of hectic here this week, and I've had a rough few days. I have an appointment today that has me pretty stressed out and then I'm coming home to veg out with my family. I have given myself time this weekend to work on the blog and PSP,as I need that stress reliever.

All three of my kids are having health issues flair up at once and we're pretty concerned. My youngest has to have her tonsils out asap, and in order to get this done right away I have to drive her two hours away to do so. Which is ok.. except I hate driving lol and then the added stress of worrying about my baby. She's only 5 and has to have it done at the childrens hospital up north. I've been through the tonsillectomy route with my husband and my oldest this time last year. They had them back to back! OYE VEY! lol It's just the worry of it all that gets me. Then my oldest is having issues with losing focus and the concern is great enough she has to see a specialist. My son is having issues with his disorders add on the million of things I worry about and the end of school coming.....

I need a nap lol! I'm not going anywhere I promise! I just need to take a time out for a day or two more to gather my wits. I will be posting templates later today though. I have those already done. I won't be posting anymore tuts until this weekend.

I'm sorry I promise I'm not flaking out on anyone :) I just need a time out. Anyone else need a time out.. let's all find a corner together! LMAO!

Much love,

Shani

Queen of Rock Tutorial




Queen of Rock Tutorial

This tutorial was written on April 28, 2009 By Shani aka Wicked Princess and the concept of the tag is mine and mine alone. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is strictly coincidence.

This tutorial is for anyone with working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies:

Scrap Kit from Kristin @ Wicked Scrapz called Rock Revolution can be found here:

http://kristinswickedscrapz.blogspot.com/2009/03/rock-revolution.html

Template by Alyssa (it’s the one with the star) can be found here: http://alyssastutorials.blogspot.com/2009/04/2-new-templates.html

Tube of choice, I used the artwork of Keith Garvey and you can find it at www.mypsptubes.com

Plugins:

Xero Radiance

Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow

Let’s get started!

Open up the template, deleting the info layer. Resize it by 84 % making sure that all layers is checked.

Open several papers of choice from the kit and minimize.

Activate the long rectangle layer first on your layers palette. Go to selections, select all then selections, float then selections defloat. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Got to selections none and delete the template layer. With the now filled rectangle layer active, go to your Eye Candy 4000 plug in and select gradient glow. Use the fat gradient glow set to the color black and the glow width of 3.00. Then re do the gradient glow with the same settings but set to white. Repeat these steps for all the template layers EXCEPT the star and circle background layer.

Next open Frame 2, resizing if needed. Copy and paste as new layer and move this layer in between the small rectangle layers. Adjust and resize if needed.

Then open the wire from the kit, you will need to resize this. Copy and paste as a new layer just below the circle frame layer. Make sure the frame layer is active then go to selections, select all then expand by 6. Activate the wire layer and hit delete on your keyboard. Go to selections none.

Open the metal doodle, resizing as needed and copy and paste as a new layer below the star frame layer. With the frame layer activated, go to selections, select all, then selections expand by 6. Click on the doodle layer and hit delete on your keyboard. Go to selections none.

Open your tube of choice and copy and paste as a new layer. Adjust where you would like for it to be. I used the plug in Xero, Radiance to add a different kind of effect to the tube. This is optional, If you use it, just hit random or mess with the settings until you find the one you like.

Add a thin white gradient glow to the tube to make it stand out a bit more.

This is optional: I made her pop out of the frame a little by doing the following….

Duplicate the tube once you have added all effects. Move one layer below the frame layer. On the top tube layer use your eraser brush and erase parts that you want the frame to show through. Use my finished tag as a guide.

Next add the elements of your choosing, resizing and adjusting as needed. Add text or word art of choice.

Don’t forget your copyright info and license number for the tube you used if needed! Add tagger info and your all done!

Thank you for trying out my tutorial

My apologies and other wicked randomness...

I'm sorry that I haven't gotten tags up from those who sent them to me. I meant to do it last night and tweak the blog but my youngest wasn't feeling well. She had her check up yesterday and shots :( Bless her heart! She was up and down all night and hurting. On top of that we were all exposed to strep recently and I fear we may becoming down with it. I woke up with a sore throat and so did my son. I'm worried that my littlest one will get it again, as she had it in October that led to Scarlet Fever. This is so not fun.. lol. This all happens the day after we find out her tonsils need to come out. Oh the joys for me of going through this AGAIN! This time last year my husband was recovering from a tonsillectomy and my oldest was getting ready for hers. Good thing is I've been through it before, I just worry about seeing my baby sick and hurting :( *sighs* I know this will help her in so many ways though.

Oh and I ran off random again! lol I tend to do that a lot yes? :)

I'm going to take the afternoon to try and get some rest while I can and do a little laundry before my preschooler gets home. Then later this evening I'll be revamping the blog and posting tags. Also I've made the decision since I'm whipping tags out left and right and templates (I have done 18 already and only posted 10 lol) I will be posting templates AND tuts daily as I get the tuts done. This will help me catch up with my creative team too! I will be posting a new blinkie that Miss Alyssa made for me, bless her :D She's always up to a challenge, and my blinkie making just doesn't cut it! Lot's of stuff will be changing on the blog, things I've been meaning to do for over a week and haven't been able to. I'll make sure I explain things more when I'm done :)

If anyone has any suggestions or comments, let me know!

Much love and blessings,

Wicked Princess

Next open 5 papers of choice and minimize. You’ll be using these in the materials palette under patterns.

Click on the first circle layer activating it. Click on your magic wand tool, and click inside the circle. Go to selections, float then selections defloat. This helps to not make the edges look so jagged.

Open Painted flower1, resizing and copy and paste to the left side of the rectangles. Duplicate this layer and go to image, mirror. Adjust if needed.

Next open Envelope 1, resize and copy and paste as a new layer above the left painted flower. So that it falls just below the right one.

Open Tag1, resize and copy and paste to the left of the rectangles , angling as you like

Open the book, resize and copy and paste as a new layer. Angle it to the right, adjusting as needed.

Add the bows to the stems of the rose.

Wickedly Random...


Just a few notes friends.. I'm going to be working on changing things on the blog, making things more accessible and hopefully find a better layout. I'm not sure what I'm looking for yet, but I know I want it to really "fit" me lol.

Let's see what else....

Oh yes, if you haven't already, go check out my girl Alyssa! She FINALLY decided to come to the dark side muahahahahahaha and start blogging! She's doing tutorials and templates now too! She's wickedly talented and super sweet! Check her blog out at:

http://alyssastutorials.blogspot.com

I downloaded her first template and made a pretty sweet tag with it.. even if I do say so myself! ;) I'll be making it into a tut this week.

Also I've been on quite a roll the past week or so, managing to whip out more templates that my CT team can keep up with ;) So I'll be posting every day either tuts or templates alternatly. So make sure you check it out! If you haven't already, subscribe to the blog!

I think that's all for now, so I'm signing off my friends to post a new template and get away from the computer. Since sunset is coming and the last bit of day time sun is blinding me right in the eyeball lol!

Have a good night friends!

More tags from friends!

Yay I have a bunch to post today :) Hopefully I get them all and don't miss anyone! :)

First up we have Miss MamaCita @ BFF Kreationz and she made some wicked tags for me this week! Make sure you check out template 8 preview, she put up a new one for me! LOVE IT! Make sure you check out BFF Kreationz! She is coming up with some pretty sweet tags!

This one is with Template #7...I really like the colors she used, not what I expected!


And the second one is from good friend Alyssa! She actually made this for a fabulous FTU tutorial she wrote on her blog! YAY Alyssa is sucked into the blogging world with me! And bless her heart she used my template :D Make sure you check her out! She's a super sweetheart and incredibly nice :) And not to mention incredibly taleneted! I've always been a fan of her work!

Delicously Girly Tutorial




Deliciously Girly Tutorial

This tutorial was written on April 19, 2009 and the concept of the tag is mine. Any resemblance to any other tag is coincidental.

Supplies needed:


Delicious scrap kit by Blue Dream Designs, can be found here:

http://bluedreamdesigns.blogspot.com/2009/03/delicious-freebie.html

Template by Rebel Chick can be found here:

http://whispersofamemory.blogspot.com/2009/03/2-new-templates-4-u.html

Tube of choice, I used the artwork of Angela Newman and you can find her work @ www.artisticminds.com

Plug in Muera Meisters Copies

Mask of choice

Let’s get this party started!

*note add drop shadow of choice through out as you go.

Open the template and delete the copyright layer. Also remove the staple layer, we won’t be using it.

Open several papers of choice, and minimize them.

Click on the bottom template layer and add a raster layer. Move this blank layer to the very bottom.

Flood fill the area with a paper of choice. Add your mask, and remember to merge group.

Next open a flower of your choice from the kit, you may need to resize just a little. Place in center of your canvas.

Go to your plug in Muera Meister Copies, and from the drop down menu select encircle. Make your settings what you would like, keeping in mind this is going to go below the first circle layer. Click ok. You may need to adjust the size a bit.

Move this layer below the first circle template so that the petals just peek out.
Make the first template layer active. Using your magic wand tool, click inside of the circle. You should see dancing ants around it. Go to selections, float then selections, defloat. This helps take away the jagged edging you get when you flood fill the area. Add a new raster layer, and flood fill with the paper of your choice. Go to selections none and delete the template layer.

Continue this for each layer until you have a completely filled template.

Next pic the scalloped frame from the kit, open and resize as needed.

Copy and paste it into the center of your canvas. Using your magic wand tool, click inside the frame. Go to selections, modify, expand and expand by 6. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with your choice of paper. Go to selections, none. Move this layer just below your frame.

Add your tube of choice. You’ll notice I have it so her foot and the animals feet are inside the frame, yet her head is out of the frame. To do this I added the drop shadow I wanted to use and then duplicated the layer. I moved the second tube layer (the duplicate) just below the frame layer. On the top tube layer above the frame, I used the eraser tool and erased the parts I didn’t want to show outside the frame.

Next go through and add the elements of your choosing. You can go by what I did or make or do it your way J

Add your text if you choose any, the copyright info for the tube, license number if needed and your tagger info.

Save and your all done!

I hope you enjoyed this tut, and I would love to see your results!

Thank you for trying this out!

A heartfelt thank you...

Photobucket

Good morning friends! I wanted to take a time out from my tagging and template creating to say a heartfelt thank you to all of you. Every day I come on here to add stuff, check out the blog, read the chat box and I'm so excited! So many hits to the blog, people leaving love and beautiful tags I see.

Anyone who knows me well, knows I truly love tagging. It's a huge stress reliever for me and a chance to be creative. When I started tagging, I learned all on my own. I didn't have anyone teaching me or helping me. I started out slow and discovered tutorials. I didn't understand them at first and found some easier beginner ones. Then it just sort of took off from there :) I'm excited to be able to help out and create and do tutorials. I'll be honest I was hesitent at first in doing them, but I remembered how hard it was to do this with out a little help at first. I really want to work on some beginner tuts this weekend too. More step by step instructions... there I go off on my own random thoughts again! lol

All in all, I love doing this blog and I thank all of you who come by and check it out, take the time to use the templates or do the tuts. I really love it when you show me your work! It doesn't matter how many ya'll send me.. I'll post them!

Thank you for the love, and loyalty :)

Much love,

Wicked Princess

Candy Land Tutorial




Candy Land Tutorial

This tutorial was written on April 9, 2009 and the concept for the tag is mine. Any resemblance to any other tag or creation is of pure coincidence.

My daughter Otelia named this tutorial since I was having a hard time coming up with a name!

Supplies needed

Missy template 184 can be found here:
www.divineintentionz.blogspot.com


Scrap kit of your choice or the one I used, Candy Bunnie which can be found here:

Fonts of choice.

Let’s get started on this sweet tag!

*remember to add drop shadows of choice as you go!

Go to the bottom layer and add a raster layer, moving it to the bottom of the layers.

Open a paper of choice, and flood fill that layer with this paper.

Open Candie_Bunnie temp 1, resize as needed and add as new raster layer just above your background layer.

Duplicate this layer then go to image, mirror.

Close off the other layers EXCEPT for the pink temp layers. Merge visible.

Duplicate this layer, then go to image flip.

Merge both Pink temp layers.

Open up the other layers.

Choose a doodle of your choice as well as a glitter splat of your choice.

Add as new layers just above your pink temp layers. Resize as needed.

I chose to duplicate and then image, mirror then image, flip for both the doodles and splats. You may adjust to where you would like them.

Open 4 papers of your choosing.

First select the rectangle layer with your magic wand tool.

Go to selections, float then selections, defloat.

Add a new raster layer. Flood fill with your choice of paper.

Delete the template layer, then go to selections none.

Continue this for each piece of the template.

Pick a d├ęcor of choice. Resize as needed, place as new layer to the right of the circle. Duplicate and go to image, mirror then image, flip.

Open lollipop of choice, resize as needed and paste to the right on the upright rectangle.

Open Flower of choice and resize as needed, placing just below the lollipop.

Last but never least, :) is Susan! From the moment I started this blog, she's been right out there sending me stuff and I fell in love with her work! It's awesome and she really took Template 4 in a new direction, and it really worked! I was impressed by how she didn't use any kits with this one, just strictly colors and plug ins! I'll have to get her to show me a few tricks ;) Ty Susan!



As always if you send me your tags, I'll post them AND I'll put them in the slideshow!

Thanks again ladies!

Much love,

Wicked Notes....

Hi all! I wanted to check in and run a few random things.. because by now some of you have figured out I can be pretty random :P I hope to start working on a new template tomorrow, while I have some quiet time. I wanted to do it yesterday and today but other things came up. As I was dozing off last night I had several idea's for kits and templates! Doesn't the creativity always hit you when your half asleep? lol I'm hoping to be able to work on my notes for the stuff tomorrow.

Also I was mesmerized today by the amount of hits this blog has gotten! I had over 100 hits today alone! How cool is that? Also I absolutley LOVE when anyone sends me stuff that you make with my tutorials and anything else I make! It's such an honor to have ya'll share that with me! I will post them too as well as put them in a slide show at the bottom of the page. So make sure you send me your stuff!

I don't require you to leave comments when you download, but I love to see comments in the CBOX over there---->>>>> so feel free to leave comments, suggestions, whatever you like!

And.... I'll be announcing this week my new Creative Team who will test out my templates, and scraps I make. So stay tuned!

Oh and I was asked if I ever plan to going PTU.. the answer is.. thats a far way off lol. I know I'm not good enough to go PTU, so instead I'd rather stay FTU and help out my fellow taggers!

Ok that's enough for me.. time to get the monsters..er.. the children ready for bed :D I shall return in the next day or so with new stuff!

Much Love,

Wicked Princess

New Taggies and other randomness...

MamaCita @ BFF Kreationz, made me this AWESOME, gorgeous tag with Template 3! I was really impressed :) She's such a sweetheart, her and SisterDuck.. you must check out their site on myspace! I have a link to their site posted on the sidebar. Make sure you tell them who sent ya :

Here's the taggie--



On a side note.. I made the decision to close the site on myspace that I shared with my brother. So many things have been crazy for my whole family the last few weeks, that it was time to just close it. I hated doing it because there are so many beautiful and inspiring friends there who are incredibly loyal to us as taggers and friends. I felt bad letting them down in some ways by not being able to be on the site as much. I really wanted to take the next step in my tagging career (as Alyssa calls it lol) and really venture out and find something that I could call completly my own. This is why I'm doing this blog. I want to be able to help beginners, as well as the more advanced PSP'ers. I learned completly on my own and it sucked lol.. I want to be able to help anyone who asks!

To be able to do this and share is an honor, and I've met some super awesome people already and am very blessed by their friendship and support. I thank everyone for stopping by and checking out the site! Make sure you look at all posts.. I have a little bit of everything mixed in lol. I'll try to get links more organized soon. I would love to see your creations and anything you make using my templates, scraps or tutorials I will proudly display for everyone to see! Please feel free to email me at anytime with any questions you may have! Subscribe to the blog to keep up to date my friends!

Much love and Blessings,

Shani aka Wicked Princess

Few notes from the Wicked One...

I want this blog to be user friendly, so if you have any suggestions please let me know! My good friend MamaCita @ BFF Kreationz (which you can find the link to over there somewhere --->>) suggested a chat box.. so I have :) Feel free to leave some love, questions or anything you like!

I'm working on a tutorial for Autism Awareness and should have it ready by tomorrow evening :)

It's been a long week and a crazy one here for us. I'm trying to get a bunch of stuff done and prayerfully will have some time this weekend to work on new templates and stuff :)

So keep an eye out friends!

Much love,

Wicked Princess

Fabulous tags!

Both of these were made for me from Susan! She used Wicked Template # 2 for both and you'll recognize the Groovy Superstar one from my tutorial. She really kicked butt on these! They are incredible and I love them :)

Remember if you'd like to see your tags up here on my blog, just send them on through to me and I'll post them! :)

Thanks again Susan!
