Homework October Week 3

 

Welcome to my SLP homework page.

 

This week's tutorial: 
Vectors:
Object Alignment, Distribution, and Grouping

Created by: Doro Sensen

This last in a fantastic Vector series created by Doro Sensen will explore what the Alignment, Distribution and Grouping features can do for us when constructing a vector image.

 

 

 

Class assignment:
Show 2 examples of how you would use or decorate your image.
 



 

 

I used a pink-pale blue gradient to fill the vector selections. Then I used the Alien Skin Eye candy Glass filter to give it this semi-precious stone look. Then I inserted the PSP UG image that I made separately as a new layer and brought that to the bottom ...


 


 



 

For this one I selected a section of the eye of the feather and copied that. Pasted as a new image and then made it seamless with 20/20. Copied and pasted that again as a new image in PSP and selected that as a foreground pattern. I selected the frame and flood filled it with the feather pattern. Again, a soft glass Eye candy filter applied... Then I saved it as a tube and made it fit around the image by resizing the image and moving the frame with the mover tool.
Last I added a border of 5 pixels, flood filled it again with the feathery pattern. An inner bevel completed the picture.



 


 

 

Assignment:
Enjoy experimenting with aligning, distributing and grouping to come up with your own personal touches.
 



 

For this Kids Celebration image I formed 2 groups, a top/bottom group and a left/right group. The champagne glass and party preset shapes are from the PSP 7 anniversary edition. I used the same settings as we used in the tutorial. I filled the champagne glasses with a soft yellow/white gradient and a light grey drop shadow.  I then added an Alienskin eye candy glass filter.

The balloons, candles,  party hats and streamers were filled with cyan magenta yellow gradient. After that I applied eye candy gradient glow in yellow white shades.

The background is flood filled with a soft pastel gradient, set with a floral texture.  The font I used is called JL Balloon caps. I placed the metallic bow tube as a final touch on a new layer and moved it into place. Then I merged all layers.

A lot of text for a small image, uh?

 

 




A tutorial with a lot of possibilities!
