CU OK Craft Gems

I found these things in my “Pending” file which is where I put all the stuff I’m going to do “later”.  I have several things in there that I have started and then for whatever reason I never finished.  I’m not real sure how useful these will be but I’m trying to clear out the pending folder so I wrapped these up tonight.  A while back I photograhed a sheet of craft gems and extracted them.  There are three different layers in the .psd.  The top “gem” layer, and a silver “setting” layer and a gold “setting” layer.  They aren’t divided individually so you will need to choose which setting you want (if any) and merge with the gem layer (after recoloring, if you like).  Then you will need to select a gem (with rectangular marquis, lasso tool, etc.) and copy it to your layout.  I could have just offered a few gems but I thought you might want some variety as no two gems are exactly alike and you can create a more realistic element – yes? Anyway, here’s a quick example of a frame I made:

Thanks!

Thanks for the great gem selection

Deatles said...

So very pretty....and so many uses to be sure. Thank you!!!

Robin said...

Just wanted to add - It's pretty awesome that you've given us individual gems here. It really does make a difference that they're not all clones with the exact same refraction and such. It would have obviously taken heaps more time to extract these so thanks again for all you do.

Cindy N. (aka nadci) said...

Thank you very much. I appreciate your creations a lot.

Traci said...

Deb...these gems and settings are fantastic. I've already used one of the round ones and a gold set in a kit I'm working on...I used a color overlay to make the gem pale green. Worked like a charm and looks smashing! Girl, you rock! Thanks for the time and talent.
