This gif here was easy and thrown together quickly.
With PSP and Animation Shop, it's very easy to turn any creation you make into an animation.
This gif is only 3 frames.
I've made gifs that have many, many more frames.
Sometimes they are very complicated.
When I really want a challenge, I will place 2 or 3 animations within one. The timing has to be just right to get it to do what I want, but it's a great learning process when I get the exact results I want.
These creations below were all made from the first pink creation. The first one is 2 layers. The flower is on the background. The one to the right was changed slightly and swirled.
The third, lower left was made from the one above it, while the 4th, lower right was made from the one just above it. I just love how flexible the program is.
If you're mind's eye can see what you want, I think you can create it. Sometimes, it just happens by chance!
Now what can you do with these? They make great accents for other creations you're making. They make great accents for stationary, cards, or envelopes. There's just no end to their uses.
That's it for today. See you tomorrow!

When I start a project, I don't always know exactly what I'm going to come up with. But any project helps you learn new things.
Creating is just fun.
Have a happy Friday, wherever you may be, and ... I'll see you tomorrow.

Also an experiment with a whole-body creation.
I call her Alexa doing yoga.
I didn't do a lot of detail on her. And I'm constantly playing around with different ways to do hair.
She took awhile also, but I enjoyed the process anyway.
See you tomorrow.

I created the first tube, and then used it to make additional tubes.
That's the PSP tube magic.
The first was just some colored lines, red and black, of varying thicknesses that I kaleidoscoped. I came up with 2 that fit well together to get the first image used. So the first item is actually 2 tubes merged together.
I then removed the outside of the item and reduced it for the flower in the middle. I colored the middle and outside petals, added a stem and leaves and added a little color to the leaves. Viola! A flower.
For the third, I removed one item from my first creation to make a top border on my Thank You card. I duplicated the item 2 times and merged them together. I then duplicated and flipped that item for the other side. I created the paper, added color, borders, and reduced the flower and added a center of one color for the larger flower, and then simply duplicated the center and chose a new color. I duplicated and flipped the larger flower, shrunk it down and added the new colored center to it. Add a few lines here and there, and I have my card.
PSP is magical. It makes tubes, and tubes are the best kind of magic, in my book.
See you tomorrow.
