ArtRage聽is an easy to use digital paint software with many possibilities for the digital scrapbooker or artist. The tools inArtRage聽work very similar to the the art tools of the聽physical world.聽The best way to work with聽ArtRage聽is to use it with a聽Wacom聽tablet. There is more precision with a pen than with a mouse. This tutorial uses聽ArtRage 4, Bamboo Create and Photoshop CS3.

Upon opening聽ArtRage, click onFILE>NEW PAINTING,a window will appear. Under聽Screen Size, type in width and height size. For standard digital scrapbooking, 3600 px for both. Where it says聽Printed Size is: 12×12 at, type 300 pixels/inch.

#1

At quick glance, there is a color wheel on the lower right side for quick color selection. On the lower left side, the selection of brushes and art tools. At the top right, there is a layer box.聽ArtRage聽supports layers and will save and export to Photoshop in layers. Top left bar are file selections including undo and zoom buttons.

#2

To start, import a doodle or line drawing. This is a doodle from Cilenia Curtis. Select聽FILE>IMPORT IMAGE FILE TO LAYER.Find the drawing and select to import into ArtRage.

#3

 

Create another layer in the layers box by clicking on the plus sign. 聽The layer should be above the drawing.

#4n

 

Select the watercolor brush and click on the tool size. This will bring up a box. Type in 200%.

#9n

Start to use the brush to color in the drawing. Remember to be in the layer ABOVE the drawing. With the watercolor brush, it acts like real watercolors. The color will start to fade. Picking up the pen/mouse will act as if lifting the brush to reload with water. Putting it back down will give it more intense color. The brushed image will carry similar streaks as in watercolor.

When painting in the layer above the line drawing, select the right bottom button聽on the layer for blend modes.

#7

Go to聽BLEND MODE>MULTIPLY. 聽This will cause the line drawing layer to show thru the paint layer.

#8

 

For additional fun brush settings, click on聽Settings聽above the brushes/tools to open up further selections. Next toNo Preset, there is a tiny sideways arrow. Select this and then聽Watercolor.聽There are further selections to play with. For example,聽JUST WATER聽acts as if additional water was added to the paint and thins it out more.

#5

For additional texture and realism, add an overlay by selecting聽FILE>IMPORT IMAGE FILE TO LAYER聽and select a watercolor texture. This will be placed in its own file ABOVE the paint.

#10

Change the blend mode by selecting the bottom right side button on the layer,聽BLEND MODE>OVERLAY.

#11

 

This texture happens to be black and white. 聽If using a colored texture file, it will affect the painted color layer beneath. To turn it black and white, select聽EDIT>ADJUST LAYER COLORS.

#12

A box will appear. The four sliders will effect the color of the texture in the layer. To make the texture black and white, slide the color over to -100%. The preview will show the effects.

#14

 

For more painting, do not forget to select the PAINT layer and not the texture layer or the line drawing layer. To view the drawing without the texture overly, click on the EYE on the top left button of the layer.

#13

To save as an聽ArtRage聽file, select聽EDIT>SAVE PAINTING聽or聽EDIT>SAVE AS. To save as a Photoshop layered file or another type of file, select聽EDIT>EXPORT IMAGE FILE, then select the type.聽Try out a聽demo聽of the latest Version 4 to get a feel for this type of software. It contains many of the features of the full package with limited save and export, but its a great way to evaluate this product before you purchase it.

Our team created some additional pages for your inspiration! 聽They are so diverse in their creativity. 聽I just love how one kit can encompass so many different viewpoints. 聽Remember that these were created not only with the kits provided with Record Your World, but also with additional ViVa kits. The RYW kits are great additions to your own stash and should be used as building blocks.

2014_RYW_1_Coversmall

Cynthia created this using the packs included, as well as the Bold and True Studio Mix #47聽and the background is one she drew herself.

Viva_RYWcover_elysah_WorkBookCover_zps53319e9a

 

Elysah used Les Saisons for this cover.

viva_thrones_elysah_RecordyourworldCover1_zpse9735313

 

Elysah composed this cover using bits from Kairos, Fairytales, and Thrones. 聽The warrior came from another designer but you will have to check with her on which kit it came from.

Viva_RYW_P1_elysah_JustBeingMe_zps3ba77f64

This is for Project 2. 聽Again, Elysah used the Les Saison collection for it.

 

2014RYW_2_WhoIamsmall

Cynthia created this with the Project 2 set

 

ViVa_RecYourWorldLO_zps199d7469

And here’s one from Mish.

The next ones are for Project 3.

Viva_RYW_P1_elysah_TimeLeft_zps21b7589d Viva_RYW_P1_elysah_TimeRight_zpscba68acb

Created by Elysah with Balance and Chakra kits.

vivathepit

From Jenn.

It’s super easy to incorporate the elements/papers of the Projects into your own stash. 聽Mix and match because they are extremely versatile to work with.聽I hope these will give you inspiration to try the Record Your World projects!

So how do you make resolutions for yourself? 聽Do you do it yearly? 聽Do you do it daily? 聽Do you use one word? 聽Do you create a list? 聽This Record Your World project will have you go thru the resolutions process and whichever you do, the next step is to account for it by creating your page in this personal time capsule.

project6_mainpreview

Don’t forget, the project includes a booklet with inspiration, prompts, and ideas. 聽Along with that, swatches, four unique kits such as:

 

ViVa_RYW_faces2previewLG

ViVa_RYW_junkpreviewLG

ViVa_RYW_scribpreviewLG

ViVa_RYW_speechpreviewLG

This year, a large part of my resolutions is that I promised myself to learn and make art. The past few years have been incredibly busy with our family moves and also opening a business. I want to spend a little me time to relax somewhat and actually learn how to use a pencil and brush! To that end, I purchased some online art classes to help me out and to force me to actually sit down and DO IT! I plan on scrapping that out! 聽I also do smaller resolutions throughout the year so that there is balance in play. 聽Physically, I am going to get into bikini shape! 聽I can’t believe I live here on an island and I hate the way I look in a swimsuit (don’t we all?) so it’s a couple of little things on a three times a week basis exercise wise and a diet check as well (meaning loads of water drinking and salad eating!).

Here are two additional products that will get you going:

 

 

These would go great with almost any kind of page. 聽Very versatile! 聽The alphas are in ABR format so it’s super easy for you to use in Photoshop. Easy as using a brush. 聽For those who use other programs, they are also provided as png files! 聽With uppercase, lowercase, and numbers in black but super easy to change the colors to anything you choose. Or, you could use these in combination with our Messo Gesso overlays for more texture!

Enjoy the weekend!

I am dismal at writing about our latest and greatest! 聽It’s too easy to just put into Facebook and not explain anything…I apologize! Here is our latest, Iridescence. 聽It’s rich and vibrant, all about the royal bird so beloved and symbolized by many kingdoms around the world. 聽Imagine your pages filled with the colors and royal symbolism!

ViVa_Iridescence_previewLG

 

ViVa_Iridescence_pp_previewLG

I love the blues and greens (the iridescence) of this kit. 聽Iridescence refers to the way one color goes into another, kind of like the shiny rainbow you see in a bubble or in an oil spill mixed with water.

Our creative team did this:

Irr-ides-ERIN

IridiscencesmallCYN

I-Accept-web_HOLLY

 

This layout uses the Gesso Alpha here.

beauty-copy ERIN

This last one uses wordart from UNICA.

This kit came together because of a request from Holly. 聽We usually are very happy to take requests and if it fits our ideas and moods, we’ll create it! Do let us know if you have a request for a theme, either in the comments section here or on FB or on email.

Last week we released two new Gesso Overlays! 聽We know you love our gesso as much as we love it!!!

ViVa_MessoGesso_overlay2_previewLG

ViVa_MessoGesso_overlay3_previewLG

 

These are full 12×12 page overlays. 聽If you need it smaller, just clip the overlay to whatever shape you need and then 聽click on your blending options in the layers palette. 聽These are very versatile and fun and add a bit of texture to your pages!

This month, we are included in the Daily Digi along with 6 other designers. 聽So you get 7 full kits for one low monthly price! 聽It’s a fantastic way to try out new designers or to branch out into other types of digital art! 聽And if you didn’t get a chance to hear, we are also included on the Daily Digi Digest, a podcast interview that we had SO much fun doing. 聽Find out a little more about each of us on the show.

This kit is timed for those who cruise during the winter months. 聽If you have ever cruised, it’s a fun way to travel without the logistical issues. 聽And the food!!! 聽The amazing amounts of food that can be found on a ship is incredible. 聽You could eat somewhere on the ship at every minute of every day. 聽I have a weakness for cruises, not that I go very often, but I met my husband on board a Royal Caribbean cruise many years ago when I was a teenager traveling with my parents. 聽He was working on board the ship. 聽Believe it or not, we’ve only every done one other cruise together since and that was for our 20th anniversary.

Be sure to grab the 30% off coupon as well at the end of the post on the Daily Digi, grab it and use it before it’s expired!!!

This week is crazy with it being so close to the holidays. 聽I know how it is for me trying to get it sorted and arranged, presents to wrap, groceries bought, food to be made, and basically trying to enjoy the holidays as well. 聽Vanessa has started her Hanukkah festivities this week as well. 聽We hope that you are all taking the time to be with your families and to create lovely memories.
