Re: Christmas Baubles Ornament Snow Globe challeng

Wow everyone's are so pretty.
I made this several years ago, it's a bit primitive but it was fun
I didn't have a hanger *thingy back then so I stuck it in a branch lol.
Perhaps I will try to make some new ones and see if I can figure out that Snow globe.

Very quick one from me.
Found a background - Distort/Glass/tiny lens, made a square selection, Distort / Spherize masked out the corner bits, added a THINGY (made one up my self).

Merry Christmas to all By the way.

HI Palms, I had fun with the link for the chisrtmas card.

Summers, love the colors of yours
Peter, yours is very real looking.
Ikroll very imaginative, I really like the pink and green one.
Patrica, I love the one with the neat pattern.

Re: Christmas Baubles Ornament Snow Globe challeng

Anyone want actions for the Snow Globes?
The action by Dave you use an open picture and the action works on a copy of it just size to fit..
The action by Nicholas you drag your picture onto the Action and size to fit...

Is this cheating?

Re: Christmas Baubles Ornament Snow Globe challeng

Nice one Peter, and you can go to the top of the class for making your own thingy

Nice card CathyH it is a fun reasonably easy one to do, except for the tree how did you do yours ?

Granny great snow globes and great links and it is a definite NO actions are not cheating

Ikroll thanks for the link it is a good one and I have utmost respect for CSpringer clever man ( and a member here)

Just had a thought will start another thread for other xmas images so we can keep just the baubles /snow globes here
I have some other links to tuts etc

Thanks Patricia
Well it's the first time I've ever been asked how to make a Thingy!
No it's not a candle stick it's a Drawing pin - you know one of those ones with the plastic head thingybobby bit that you use to push em in and pull em out. I just removed the pin, distorted it a little and recoloured, then added a little texture, for realism.

I like both of yours - the second one more though - nice texture there.

I'll stop blethering now and get back in my corner.

Night night.

Peter
