"Fun With Filter Effects" Freebie Effects for Serif CraftArtist Professional

Hi Everyone,

As a result of making the tutorial "Fun With Filter Effects" for use in Serif's CraftArtist Professional, I have created a Freebie CraftArtist Scrapbook File with 16 effects that you can add to your Effects Tab and use in your projects.

Once you have downloaded the Scrapbook zip file (it is in a Serif .craft file format) , unzip it  and save the file in the same place you store your own scrapbook pages. 

To open the .craft file go to File > Open, and then browse to the file as usual. 

Along with the effects there are two pages that include instructions about how to add the effects to your Effects Tab.

On the video, I ask if anyone can tell what the difference is between Selene Steampunk 1 and 2 effects - just for fun. If you think you know, leave a comment on the blog. :-)

 The images and embellishments are from screen captures 
I wouldn't normally use so many different effects on one page, but this gives an idea of how they can be applied to frames. They also look good on text and fonts, and other small items. The background is also made using one of the effects, so they can look fine on larger items as well. You just have to experiment and see what looks good to you.

I hope you enjoy using these, and that perhaps you will get around to making your own.

Nice tutorial and effects Karen. Is the difference between the two steampunk effects the difference in the wavelength of the bump map?
