CU OK Doodle Edge Shapes .csh and pngs

Today’s freebie is a set of doodle edges that you can use as they are or you can use them to create template shapes for your layouts.  I captured a few screen shots to show you what I mean. All of the shapes are at least 3600 pix wide so you just plop one on your layout:

Tut1

Then using your magic wand select the area under or over the doodle, with your contiguous box checked.  Create a layer under the doodle layer and expand your selection by a few pixels.

Tut2 Then fill the selection on your blank layer with a color:

Tut3 While you still have your marching ants, invert your selection and create another layer above the layer you just filled in and fill it with a different color:

Tut4Deselect and you can remove or hide the doodle area if you want, or keep it depending on your taste:

Tut5You can clip a background paper to each of the shape layers or just apply a layer style, it’s really up to you!

Tut6      

Anyway, you get the idea.  Here’s the preview and DL Links:

I also wanted to thank all of you who voted for my Scariest Homescreen in the Android Headlines contest!  I won a brand new Samsung Fascinate phone!  It is an awesome phone but unfortunately I cannot use it with my current carrier.  Once I receive it I am going to place it on Ebay and auction it for Special Olympics. Special Olympics is an organization that is especially dear to those of us in Law Enforcement.  Every year we raise money for Special Olympics by participating in a Torch Run.  Police departments from all over the state run in different “legs” of the run and carry the torch to the Opening Ceremonies of their state’s Special Olympics.  Anyway, I appreciate your votes!  There’s no way I could have won the phone without you and thanks to you we will raise some money for a great organization!

Thank you so much for sharing...I am curious though, when I try to select above or below the custom shape it says "cannot use the magic wand because the target is a fill layer"... what am I missing? Hope you can help! Thanks a million in advance
