New script – Bow #19

Bow script for PaintShop ProUsing bows and knots can be quite versatile as long as you have variety. This is the 19th type of bow in the store (and we have knots too) so using your own straight ribbon, you will have the option to create some matching bows. The script uses a random location on the ribbon so if you run the script multiple times on a patterned ribbon, you will get different results.

If you don't have a straight ribbon to use, the script can generate one for you with your choice of color, gradient or pattern.

Little bows in colors in PNG formatAs a sampler, I created six little bows using ribbons from Janet Kemp. I layered a grosgrain ribbon with lace and flattened both. Then, I ran the script. I then ran the script on the grosgrain ribbon alone (without the lace), and since the layers were not merged, I copied and pasted the knot part only to replace the one on the "lacy" bow. It is a little more work but it shows how versatile this script can be with unmerged layers.

New script – Bow #18

Script for PaintShop Pro to create triple bowBows come in so many shapes and sizes. In your stash, you will never have too many bows! This is another one in our series of bows that you can create for your own projects.

The script will use the open image if you have a straight ribbon available, but if not, it will create a new organza ribbon in the color (or gradient) of your choice before creating the bow. You can then keep that ribbon to use in other projects or for other scripts.

Easter color triple bows in png formatFor a sample, I created three organza ribbons and three bows with them. I also combined the individual loops from each bow, to make a three-color bow. That is something you can also do with the bows generated from this script since all the layers are left unmerged so you can replace or move them.

New script – Bow #17

Bow script for PaintShop ProA variety of ribbons and bows is always a plus for everyone doing scrapbooking. Some bows are large, others are small. Some are stiff, others are droopy. Variety is always needed.

This script will take your ribbon and adjust its size to create a matching ribbon. If the ribbon is thicker than 200 pixels, the script will size it down to 200 pixels before creating the bow. However, if the ribbon is thinner than 200 pixels, the script will temporarily size it and then will resize the bow to match that initial ribbon size. The end result will be on unmerged layers so you can tweak it as needed.

Bow in PNG formatAs a sampler, I started with two ribbons in fall colors and ran the script. One ribbon is 200 pixels and the other is 125 pixels so the two bows are of different sizes.

Bow 15 script for PaintShop ProDo you like droopy bows? They can be a fun change from the standard "straight" bows that we see all over, but how do you get something that will match your project?

This script will use your own thin ribbon and will create your bow with two droopy loops and long ends.

New script – Little Bow

Little bows script for PaintShop ProWho can say they have too many bows in their stash? Nobody! And these tiny bows are delicate and can be incorporated into just any project, cluster, or even on a photo itself.

You can generate little bows from any ribbon, but also from any paper, which makes this script very versatile: use it to create bows to go with your next kit or to create bows for your project using a paper you just created.

Sample of little bows in png formatAs a sample, I generated a ton of little bows from papers from an old kit I had (Splashes of Sunshine from Bernadette Hunt). I liked the colors on the 4 papers. Since they were full size, I resized them to 2000x2000 to keep some of the brushes imprint visible on some of the bows. I generated many more but kept a dozen for you among those that had some interesting patterns to them.

New script – Bow #14

Bow script for PaintShop ProWho can say they have too many bows and ribbons? Not a scrapbooker! This script will let you tie a straight ribbon into a multi-loop bow, attached with a centerpiece. Each piece is left unmerged so you can tweak them separately if needed.

The script will also add a default drop shadow on the loops but all the shadows will also be left on separate layers so you can tweak them, adjust them or even replace them altogether.

Ribbon bows in png formatFor a sampler, this week, I used a starting ribbon from Janet Scott at Pixel Scrapper and modified it slightly (to make it straighter) and ran the script for the basic bow. Then, playing with the Hue map to change the colors from the base ribbon, I created 3 additional versions to run the script again. That will give you those 4 bows to use.

New script – Bow #13

Bow script for Paintshop ProBows, bows, and more bows. This definitely not the first bow script, and it likely won't be the last either. Various projects seem to require a different type of bow. Sometimes you want it super simple, sometimes you want it flat, sometimes you want it loopy, and sometimes, you want it with multiple loops. This is what the newest script offers you.

Starting with a straight ribbon, the script will create a bow with 8 loops (yeah, that took a while to code!) and will even add a little brad in the center based on the colors of your starting ribbon. Keep it or replace it with something more appropriate for your project or the theme. Use this bow as is or as the base for a cluster.

Sample bow in .pspimage formatFor a sample, I created a simple lace ribbon and ran it through the script. I then converted both the ribbon and the bow into a greyscale which gives you a fairly white result. Since they are monochrome, you can always colorize them to match your project, or keep it as is and just add a colored center.

The bow is in .pspimage format, with the bow and the center on separate layers. The ribbon is also included so you can use it on other projects.

New script – Bow #12

Bow script for Paintshop ProYou can never have too many bows to embellish your projects. And since you can now create them from your own ribbons, you will have a perfectly matching element to attach to the ribbons.

Tie this bow to a flower, a string, a frame, anything. Since the script ends with unmerged layers, you can easily insert elements inside the knot.

What will you do with it?

New script – Bow #11

Bow made from straight ribbon - script for Paintshop ProWho can say they have enough bows in their digital stash? Nobody!

When looking for bows to use in your projects, are you stuck with the same design, with the same polkadots or the same stripes? And then, having other ribbon elements that are just not matching?

This script will take any straight ribbon and tie it in a simple bow. You can use any kind of ribbon, opaque or translucent, plain or patterned, striped or polkadot, etc.

And for a unique touch, the loose ends will be randomly cut so you won't get two identical bows, even if you start with the same ribbon.

cass-Bow11-samplesThis coming weekend, it will be July 1st (Canada Day) and July 4th (Independance Day) so i created two basic ribbons with the blue white and red colors and one with red and white. Then, i ran the script for each one. I also used the Knot#7 script to create the additional knot.

Furthermore, i am including the basic ribbons too, so you can use them as is, or with other scripts to create more knots and bows.
