A Touch of Autumn- Tag Show-off and Cluster Frame

Worked with another kit from Whispy's D'zines using her kit called  "Touch of Autumn" -which can be found here at Dzines from the Heart. This kit has beautiful colors and elegant elements which can make not only an autumn tag but even has the possibility of creating antique tags, or even a vintage tag. I really enjoyed working with this kit and made Julie a tag and also made a cluster frame that is to me very different yet I find it to be unique. I will let you cluster frame collectors be the judge of that though ;o)

 You can find Crystals kits at:

Here are two tags I made using this kit I hope that someone likes the results.... and feels inspired to create some more tags for Crystal. :)

Let’s Begin:
1.)      Let’s open a new image 600 x 600 72DPI (This will be referred to as our working image)

Getting Back in the Swing of Things

Wow its been a while, and I have to say I have kind of missed my PSP time. I am jumping back in and trying to get things up and posted. Today I have 2 tags to show off and extras for both that can be downloaded if you would like them.

I used the kit called Spring Time by Crystals Creations which can be purchased from Dzines From The Heart HERE along with other stores Crystal has linked on her blog :o)

Here are my results:


You can grab the Zindy Extras HERE  and the Barbara Jensen Extras HERE

I absolutely loved this kit as you can see there is 2 completely different styles of tags and with the goodies in the kit anything is possible. The papers and elements are just beautiful. Thank you Crystal for not only making amazing kits but for also allowing me to be on your CT Team.

My Disclosure

My tutorials are just that- Mine.In other words I really don't want them on other sites or translated. If you would like to share my tutorial then please do just that by sharing the link to my blog or a link straight to the tutorial. At the time I write the tutorial I use the artists website at the time as well as the kit designers link at the time and it would take quite some time to go back and edit all of my tutorials and posts to reflect all changes that happen. So if by chance you cant find something or a link I provided has gone bad please contact me and I will do my best to help! I write tutorials in hopes that others will use them as a guide and send me their results so I can also post others results to show people other samples other than my own. All tutorials are written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I write my tutorials in PSP 9 but they should work with other versions as well. Not all tutorials are for beginners but all levels of creators are encouraged to try working on the following tutorials!!! Have fun... and be copyright safe!!!!
