Digital Card Making with PSP

I love making my own greetings cards and thought that the card challenges would be a lot of fun. I have a lot of paper and pens...and the other things one would need to make great cards. I found myself trying to keep up with what is new on the market... then I realize all the stuff, the papers, glue, and stamps were getting very costly and I was running out of space to store it all.

That is when I decided to make elements for my cards in Paint Shop Pro aka PSP. PSP is a software that I have been teaching myself since version 3. Now using version 13 I have learned that the program can also create images and paint them as well. Light bulb went off...why not use it to make my cards and not just some elements for the cards. And so digital card making began for me...and boy has it saved me money.

This blog now consist of my creations that I have made using nothing but PSP. I found the challenge for me is to teach myself how to meet the different card challenges within PSP.

Well that is how all this digital stuff began...Just thought I share.

Copic Markers for Paint Shop Pro

Copic Makers seems to be a really big deal in the cut and paste world so I checked them out online...boy are they pricey and they bleed too. I decided to check and see if they are available for use with the graphic programs. I found Copic brushes for Photo Shop but not for PaintShopPro which is the program I use. How sad. :(

I set out yesterday to make my own brushes for PSP...boy what a tedious task. There are over 300 colors, don't know why there are so many when many of them are very very close in range, but I decided to get all the colors they have so far. I am only at the beginning stage...I should be done with the task sometime this afternoon. Then I can say I have Copic Markers part they were free for me...and in this daily struggle free is good! Just thought I share!
