Paint Shop Pro & Art Slides

I swore I wouldn't rejoin any of the graphics groups I used to belong to but I recently rejoined the Masters Paint Shop Pro yahoo group. I spent/wasted years doing nothing but making graphics using psp and putting them on web pages to share. There were many days I did nothing but make sig tags and was online looking for graphics and tubes to use. It became insane as I started to hate making the tags and other grahics but felt I had to do it to stay in the group. That's when I finally left. That was a little over 2 years ago.


The reason I decided to go back for a short time (I really mean it!) is to help me with some altered art projects. A year and half ago I bought everything I needed to make art slides but I just can't seem to get around to making the paper art to put in them. Then there's the book that I also want to do but again I just can't seem to get my head thinking that way. That's the great thing about groups that use Paint Shop Pro to make and share graphics, they get you thinking about pictures and layers. I'm hoping this won't backfire on me but since I plan on leaving in Oct so I can get ready for holidays sales I guess I won't waste too much time.

Last week I sold one of my cloth dragons and riders at my ebay store! I really like making them with the riders. I'm finishing a two-headed one. The dragon is done but I still have a little to do on the rider.
Here's a picture of Marigold Meadowton and Mataria. Mataria's face shape is based on the dragon from the movie Eragon. Marigold has a bag with scrolls and wired gemstones.
