New tubes – Skyline

Skyline picture tubes for Paintshop ProThese are picture tubes. Each set has 26 different "building" silhouette, and there are 3 sets: one for residential buildings, one for commercial buildings and one for industrial buildings (so you have a total of 78 buildings!)

Since they are picture tubes, you can simply drag your cursor along whatever path you want to place your buildings, and that's it. Adjust the scale if you want larger/smaller buildings.

All the windows are empty but you can easily fill them up by painting behind.

Skyline border in png formatIn order to get a closer look at these tubes, I created 3 "borders", one with each tube set.

Change the brightness to turn them to grey, colorize (or paint) them. If you want more than one row, duplicate one and flip it around; it will look like a different set completely.  Layer them as you wish.

Each border is 3600 pixels long so you can use them on a full-size project.

New script – Beads Art

Beaded element script for Paintshop ProIt can be fun to convert a simple clipart into a beaded element to add to a themed layout. You can do that with this script which will convert ANY image into a set of beads, all fused together.

Although you can use a full image or a photo, you will get more drastic results with brightly colored clipart or designs. Also, make sure you don't have fine lines like thin legs, antenna, hair, stems, etc. because they will just disappear. If necessary, remove those fine elements and just add them afterward, to the beaded result.

Critters made of beadsFor a little taste of summer (at least for the Northern Hemisphere), I made these 4 adorable critters in beads art for you. Each of them is about 1000 pixels in size so you can easily size them down to suit your layout.

New tubes – Chicken Wire

Chicken wire tubes for Paintshop Pro If you want to create a rustic design, either as a background or an element, chicken wires might give you just that look.

You can use ready-made chicken wire pictures or vector designs, but here is a great tube that you can shape however you want, with just a draw of your cursor. Make it straight or not so straight, depending on what you want.

You get 12 different "colors" of wires with this set, so you can be even more creative than with regular ordinary wire.

Get this set in the store: Chicken Wire tubes.

In order to win this set of tubes, add a comment on this Facebook post telling us of one creative way you can think to use chicken wires in a digital project (remember, add a comment, not just a Like!)

Chicken wire frameAs a sampler, i created this frame (using the Wooden Frame script) and added some wires behind it. I thought that you could possibly add some clothespins and attach various photos or objects, but you could also have a photo placed behind, or even cut the wires and make it even more "rustic".

It is a png format so it could be used in various graphic programs.

New script – Puffy Paint

cass-puffypaintNow, you can use your Paintshop Pro to add a fun line of puffy paint around an edge of a shape or a letter.

You can replicate that uneven look of puffy paint in various colors or thickness, with this script.

Every run of the script will give you a different look because of the random feature coded in the script.

cass-puffypaint-digitsAs a sampler of what you can get with this script, I created a set of digits in "white". You can easily fill them in with the color of your choice for a different look.

Since it is white, you can also consider them as icing digits. And why not fill them with our own Sprinkles?

Each digit is about 400 pixels high in PNG format.

A complete set will be available in the newsletter, so keep an eye on it, this coming Sunday.

New script – Strip Cluster Maker

Strip cluster maker script for Paintshop ProMaking clusters can be a great way to expand a kit you want to sell, or a way to use a kit you just purchased.

Making clusters can be a tedious task however. This script will help you as it will serve as a starting point, in gathering a certain number of long elements (like ribbons, tapes, stitching) and other elements (like flowers, buttons, tags, knots, etc.).

You can generate as many strip clusters as you want, from the elements in a single folder. You can create horizontal strips or vertical ones. Did you know that it is not a good idea to rotate a strip cluster that is already made? The shadows will be showing in the wrong angle, and any light source indication will also be inaccurate, giving an odd looking result in the end. So this script will NOT rotate any element (except the long elements) but will place them in  a vertical arrangement, if that is what you want.

You can also choose to have few elements on the cluster or a fuller arrangement.

Since the script cannot "see" the result, it will not know if it looks good or not. That is YOUR task. But the script will have given you a starting point, from which you can rearrange the elements, add new ones, remove some.

A time saving tool for you: Strip Cluster Maker.

Do you like strip clusters? Did you get the Cluster Template maker #3? Tell me how you use (or would use) strip clusters in your projects. Add your answer in the comments below. I will pick a winner and announce it in the newsletter, next week. Not a subscriber yet? Not a problem. You can register here and it is free (and you only get one email per week).

Strip ClusterThis week, with Heather T's permission, i am giving you the exact strip cluster that I made using this script.

It is 3600x700 pixels in size, in PNG format. It also includes all the shadows for realism (including the lifted thread on the left).

New tubes – Fence links

Fence Links tubesWhat could you do with a custom fence made of interlocking links in the color of your choice and the length of your choice?

But the biggest question is where to find such a perfect fence? You can now create it yourself with this set of picture tubes. Draw the fence straight or curvy with your cursor and the links will magically attach together.

You get a set of 12 color fence links. You can make your fence in one single color, or you can attach several colors together.

Get these fence links in the store: Fence Links.

Chain link fencesAs a sampler this week, I created 2 fences for you to use. One is blue white and red (perfect for our American friends celebrating the 4th of July, or our French friends for the 14th of July),  and one red and white for my Canadian friends, celebrating on July 1st.

Both fences are a bit over 3000 pixels in length. You can resize them if needed.
