In the store, we have some garlands that are bold and full, but this time, we offer you some more delicate variations on those garlands. You get 10 different colors with white ends. In addition, there is one gold and one silver set for more festive projects.

Use those picture tubes along a path using the VectorTube script, or draw freehand to create frames, texts, and doodles.

For a sampler, I drew the text for this Happy Holidays sign using the gold tinsel tube. I also used the VectorTube script to outline the sign. Each section is on an individual layer so you can use the sign without the text, or the text without the sign. You can even replace the red background with something else.

New picture tubes – Gold Chains #2

Gold chains picture tubes for PaintShop ProI released the first set of gold chain picture tubes over 10 years ago and they were VERY popular especially since those were totally new among the PSP tools. Today, I created another series of gold chains picture tubes. Those are mostly double-links chains.

You can "draw" with them with your cursor however long you want them and in any free-form shapes. If you want to add them precisely along a specific path, you can use the VectorTube script, available in the store too.

Gold Chain Frames in PNG formatAs a sampler, I created a vector shape with wavy edges and ran the VectorTube script to place the gold chains neatly along that edge. For the double frame, I used the same method to create two "matching" shapes and then used the interlacing technique to give the frame that twisted appearance.

New tubes – Netting C

Variegated Netting picture tubes for PaintShop ProTo create a nautical project, using netting is a common element. Recently, we had some netting picture tubes that you could use to embellish your project. This time around, the netting is variegated, giving the whole project a different look.

You get 10 different colors of picture tubes and they are seamless so if you need a net that is taller than 700 pixels, simply duplicate your layer and move it to align it up or down.

(and yes, the Netting B is missing; I was working on another set, but chose to change to a variegated set for now. Don't worry, the Netting B will be released, in the future)

New tubes – Netting

Netting picture tubes for PaintShop ProWhether you want to create a nautical project or find a way to have a different type of background, you can use these picture tubes. They are completely seamless so you can juxtapose them on top of each other to make a tall net. Then, you can use the Warp Mesh, or the Deformation map to give some movement to the net. Finally, add elements to your page, whether they are beach elements or photos you will attach with clothespins.

New Picture Tube – Braided Ribbons
