Make Glitter in Photoshop

Open a new canvas of 300x300.
Open een nieuw canvas van 300x300.
Set you're foreground to colour of liking and background to white.
Zet je voorgrondkleur op de gewenste kleur en de achtergrond op wit.
Filter - render - clouds
Filter-noise-add noise:
Filter - noise - add noise:

Add a new layer.
Voeg een nieuw laag toe.
Select you're brush 5 pixels with these settings:
Selecteer je penseel, 5 pixels met onderstaande instellingen:

Take a colour in the range of you're foreground color and brush 'away'.
Gebruik een kleur in het kleurenspectrum dat past bij je voorgrondkleur en ga jezelf te buiten.
Add about 7 layers with different colours, you can even use white and a goldish yellow.
Voeg ongeveer 7 lagen met verschillende kleuren, je kunt zelfs wit of een goudkleurig geel gebruiken.
Mine looks after 7 layers like this:
De mijne ziet er zo uit na 7 lagen:

Merge the brush layers.
Voeg de penseel lagen samen.
Go to blending options:
Ga naar blending opties:
Add a dropshade like this one:
En geef een slafschaduw zoals deze:

Add a outer glow like this one, with colour in you're colourrange, just play with the settings:
Voeg een 'buiten glow' zoals deze toe, met een kleur die past bij de voorgrondkleur, en 'speel' met de instellingen:

Add a new layer.
Voeg een nieuwe laag toe.
Go to you're brush and set them to a bigger one like this:
Ga naar je penseel en zet hem op een grotere zoals dit:

Add again about 5 layers with different colours of the brush and give the same blending option.
Voeg weer een laag of 5 met verschillende kleuren met het penseel toe en geef het dezelfde blending opties.
Merge these 5 layers.
Voeg deze 5 lagen samen.
Change both of these (merged) layers the layer options to screen, lighten or what ever looks the best.
Zet allebei de (samengevoegde) lagen de laagopties op screen, lighten of wat jij het mooist vind.
Add a new layer and select you're brush again with this brush:
Voeg weer een nieuwe laag toe en selecteer het volgende penseel:

Brush a little with a white colour and set the blending option to this:
Verf een beetje met wit en zet de blending optie op dit:

If you like what you've created, merge the layers.
Als het bevalt wat je gemaakt hebt voeg dan de lagen samen.

You can now crop the image a little so that you can select only the 'nice' part.
Nu kun je de afbeelding bijsnijden zodat je alleen het mooiste gedeelte kunt gebruiken.
To make it seamless go to Filter-Other-Offset:
Om het naadloos te maken ga naar Filter - Other -Offset:

Now you can use you're glitter as a seamless pattern.
Nu kun je de glitter gebruiken als een naadloos patroon.

This is my result:
Dit is mijn resultaat:

Drawing board

Today i got my first drawing board ever! Can't wait to instal the Wacom Bamboo Fun.
Hopefully i soon get the hang of it.
Thought i missed the deliveryman because i went swimming with the kids.
The boys really enjoy swimming, but my little one hates water. But i hope she'll grow over her angsity and will swim like a rat wen she grows up.
But hé pantience is a vertue (don't know if i wrote that correctly) the say ;)

I was spotted by digifree, i'm so flatterd with all of you're 'love' in my 4shared account, but i would love to see that 'love' back on my blog it's easier to track at the blog then 4shared.
Thanks everyone for those kind words and hopefully we'll be 'seeing' alot of each other on my blog.

Big hug to you all,

The beginning

Since everyone has a blog these days... and i'm getting very adicted to making scrap-kits, i thought it would come in handy to share them on a blog. ;)
Please be patient with me, because blogging is really new to me.

A little about myself.
I'm a working mother of 3, 2 boys and a girl in the age range of 1 to 9.
My first adiction was psp and that 'grew' on me, so that i have been writing tutorials for several years now. Since about a half year or so i have ps on my comp aswell.
I met N. Hinrichs, we talked alot about making photographs (i'm an owner of an digital reflex camera), and she 'lit' the scrapping virus. She's a famous scrapdesigner (books, papers etc.).

I really hope that you like my scrapkits and if you have a question feel free to ask!

Big hug,
