3. Kotare & Daisy Number #9

Part One

You don't have to travel with Kim to the Pumpkin Patch to enjoy our own version of Cow Pie Bingo!

The first part of this challenge is to request the cow element by asking for one in this thread.

I will PM you the link for two cows.

You will need to decorate one of the cows.

One of the cows is grey.

To quickly color the grey cow:
Add a Hue/Sat adjustment layer
Click on the colorize option
Use the sliders to vary the color.

For those who would like more of a challenge, here's one way to decorate your cow:

1. Add a layer UNDER the cow layer and name it Cow Color

2. Use a hard brush with the color of your choice and paint the area you want to decorate.

3. Here's mine with paint in the cow's lower body

You can repeat by adding additional layers and painting away

OR

4. Select the Cow Color layer and click on the FX icon.

5. Choose Pattern Overlay

5. Click on the patterns and experiment. Click on an individual pattern to select it.
Click off the pattern to view the size slider option.

6. Add a new layer under the cow and repeat for additional painting or pattern or to clip to background papers etc.

YOU MAY DECORATE THE COW WITH JEWELRY, HATS OR ??? BUT KEEP THE COW THE SAME SIZE.

When you are finished, save your cow.
Make a flattened version to upload to your gallery and post a copy in this thread.

After post your cow, I will PM you the Bingo Card.

On Sunday November the 8th, I will post the next instructions for the Cow Pie Bingo.

I have been working on my cow. :yes:

I sure do not get the same kind of pattern choices that you have in the tutorial - where might I find ones like those?

You can turn any background paper into a pattern.
How cool is that?

Open a 12 x 12 paper from a kit

Then Image/Image size, change it to 3 inches x 3 inches.

Then go to Edit/Define Pattern
Click OK.

It is now stored in your patterns at the bottom of the stack.

So when you go looking for it, scroll to the bottom and there it is.

Let me know if this works for you.
REMEMBER DO NOT TO SAVE THE FILE AFTER YOU RESIZED IT. If you do, you'll need to find the original zip file and extract it again to get the full size paper back.

FYI, you can vary the size and resolution to make the pattern but beware that you don't want it too big.

Also patterns created in this way are limited in their use.

Open a new document add a new layer and fill it with any color
Click on the FX Pattern overlay
And fill the entire area with the pattern.
You will see all kinds of funky edges.
There is a way to solve the problem, but not with the easy pattern method I just mentioned above.

This easy method however, is just wonderful for small areas.
And you can adjust the size slider to get rid of some funky stuff too.
Just experiment.

Thanks for the instructions for the pattern TB - I gave it try, and it worked great! I used it on the hat.

Here is my cow. :D Her name is Flow
