Rather than a child鈥檚 toy, an art doll is an artist鈥檚 expression and created to be a unique piece of artwork.聽 They are made with many different techniques and skills.聽 They can be simple or quite complicated.聽 Many mixed media artists and art journalers use art dolls in their finished art pieces. Stampington carries a magazine on art dolls alone.

Of course, what can be found in the traditional, physical art world, can of course be found digitally.聽 Here are some rather unique art dolls that can be used in digital art. 聽Scrapbookgraphics has many designers who create art dolls. 聽There’s even a section for art dolls in the Art Journal and Collage catagory!

Courtney has some beautiful ones related to a theme:

0d72616984538be96cabffd99a97ce7b

 

Crafty Button has a variety of them that can be dropped into many different pages:

8fecf58ac991f2fb84a57dc43b37f140

Angie has adorable disassembled ones that make you want to play!

23cfd27b070d9d15f20e0b2d3c1fcee7

Isn’t Lor’s kit just plain stunning?

1d113c2e6b80cf006bb4ba9ef461a6f1

 

and we have this one related to the different colors of the world:

ViVa_WorldBeat_previewLG-1

Jen has this medieval looking one:

57fdbaffe017c7770f481ef597d9b415

 

Dawn’s artdolls are so uniquely her own (I am amazed at how unique and identity-fying her illustrations are):

6d7b0ae552f607cc07ff24c3b263447c

Berna’s artdolls are as vibrant as her kits:

5ec43ffe4f97f7f796e90aa4c4e1582e

 

Maya has this cool set of facial dolls:

e6cf3c6e4d827f90f3bc3753cf8ca45d

The best part of this is that with digital files, you could PRINT the dolls out and use them as collage in your physical art. 聽So its useful in that its two things in one. 聽Use it digitally, or print it out and use it to cut and paste! 聽I can see these in journal books, on canvases, made up for SHEART as a base and then altered in your own unique way, so many possibilities! 聽I think I’m gonna try playing with some this weekend!

Photo frames are used quite often in scrapbooking and digital art. It makes a photograph look finished. This tutorial will show the process of making a paper type of frame that will complete your page.聽The tutorial uses Photoshop CS3, a frame shape from Christine Smith, a plain paper for the frame and a colorful paper for the background.

1. Select photo frame shapes and install into Photoshop, or select a frame and drag into Photoshop and place into a new document.

1

2. Select a paper for the photo frame. In this case, it was going onto a bright and colorful background so the frame paper should be muted to contrast from the background. Drag the paper onto the new document with the shape. The blue background is only to be able to see the white frame from the background.

2

3. Clip the paper to the shape by clicking聽CTRL ALT G聽(for Mac users:聽CMD OPT G). This is the聽clipping mask command.

4. Check the layers palette. Double click on the shape layer and bring upLayer Style. Click on聽Bevel and Emboss.

3

5. Use these settings as a base for the bevel for the photo frame. The angle should be whatever your light angle is set at. This tutorial assumes the light source is from the top left side. The bevel size can be as high as you wish. A paper frame tends to be thin so play with the size and depth sliders to achieve the look you are going for. The soften slider makes for a soft edge. This is good for more of a thick textile or felt look.

8

6. Change the Highlight Mode and Shadow Mode colors. The shadow mode should be a dark shadow in the tone of the paper. Do not use black as it is harsh. The highlight mode should be a lighter color but not quite white. Check the frame itself and see what suits your sense of style.

4

7. When the photo frame is set to your liking, select聽LAYER>Merge Visible. Be sure that any background layers are turned off (click on the eye in the layers palette). When the frame is merged and complete, you can now place it on your layout and set your shadows. If you decide to save the photo frame for later use, be sure to save it as a PNG file to allow for transparency.

6

Now, you are ready to continue creating your layout.

In digital, many times, we re-create a real physical scrapbooking item for the computer screen.聽 Chipboard elements have always been a mainstay of the scrapbooking world.聽 And now, you can make a custom chipboard tag to suit your own layout!

chipboard tag

1.聽Select a chipboard overlay.聽聽Amanda Rockwell聽has some amazing overlays in their shops.聽聽 This tutorial uses聽Bekah E. Designs鈥櫬犅燾hipboard overlay from a discontinued sampler.

2.聽Select a shape or create a shape.聽 This is a generic scalloped circle.

junetut1

 

3.聽Duplicate the shape by clicking on Layer>Duplicate Layer and use the 1st copy.聽 Disable the 2nd copy by clicking on the eye (you will be using this layer later on) in the layers palatte.

junetut2

4.聽Place the overlay over the shape and clip (CTRL>ALT>G).

junetut3

5.聽On the shape layer, add a slight bevel by double clicking the layer on the layers palette.

junetut4

6.聽Follow the settings below.聽 Select the shades of the highlight and shadows mode by choosing a darker and lighter version of the color of the chipboard.聽 This bevel will give some depth to the element.

junetut5

 

7.聽Select both chipboard and shape layers and merge by clicking LAYERS>MERGE LAYERS. This will force the bevel into the element.

junetut6

 

8.聽Turn on the 2nd copy of the shape by clicking on the eye again.

9.聽Transform the shape by clicking on EDIT>TRANSFORM>SCALE.聽 This shape needs to be slightly smaller than the chipboard element beneath it.

junetut7

10.聽On the top bar, change the width and height size to 90% each.聽 This will make the shape go down 10% in size evenly.

junetut8

11.聽Select a paper scrap to clip to that shape.

At this point, there are a variety of things you can do to the chipboard tag.聽 This particular look simulates a printed chipboard.聽 Add a tiny bevel on the top shape and it will give the look of paper pasted onto the chipboard.聽 Use a brush and take away some scratches from the shape and it will look distressed.聽 Add in some text or wordart for a custom tag.聽 There is no limit to what can be done to this element!聽 Use your imagination and create something unique!

This week, we’re playing with cut paper and using them as backgrounds and element pieces. 聽Monkiri means paper cutting in Japanese. 聽We’ve fashioned this cut paper set with neutral papers so it’s easy for you to play with them! 聽You can splash paint on it, you can color on it, paint it, write on it, stitch it, change the color, layer other elements on it, anything you can imagine!

ViVa_Monkiri1_previewLG

You’ll find 6 different cut paper mats in shadowed and unshadowed format. 聽Make it easy on yourself and plop the pre-shadowed versions in your pages. 聽It makes for easy pages. 聽OR, do it yourself and play with the mats first, then, add in your own shadows! 聽It’s fun, creative, and unique.

Plan your images and place them behind the mats, or layer them in front. 聽You can add in a background page behind. 聽It’s super fun to play with layers in your graphics program. 聽Some of the mats are full 12×12, some are smaller to be used layered in front of other backgrounds. 聽You could cut the mats for more variety. 聽Use your imagination and create something just for you.
