Do I should hire a professional designer to create my ad just for me? Hell No!!! Designing is a learned craft and of course I do believe that everyone has creativity. What most pro-designers (defined as anyone who writes an advertisement for now, lol) do is... dig and cultivate their insane creativity.

Who wins?Metal or rock?For me — there is no battle. Metal is just rock with a bit more distortion and attitude. And the guy that “embodies that” the most is none other than Jack Frost.He’s like a metal god with a touch of motivational speaker. Here’s some cool lessons from him showingyou one of Van Halen’s secrets: EPIC RHYTHM SECRETS.

CorelDRAW

I like CorelDraw except for this, and this could be the deciding factor as this is such an important tool. If anyone could tell me or point me in the right direction to making the CorelDraw pen tool just as flexible as the painting in white blank ordinary paper just like in school, especially (or) in this reguard...

Gothic Wedding Invitation

Gothic Wedding InvitationHi there again and again... Guys, with a little tweaking, I think this could be used for a lot more than wedding invitations, goth, dark, bright, spring, summer.. whatever!

OK... Like usual... Open a new document in Photoshop. I don’t do too much girly stuff, so I thought this might be a good time to pander a bit to the ladies. First thing first... Creating some texture, I'm gonna use a rough-edged brush at a low opacity to create it.

Hit the Brush tool (B key) and from the Brush Picker choose the Chalk 60 Pixels brush (which is one of Photoshop’s default brushes). Set your foreground color to whatever you want. Mine is #695d00.

Create a new layer called Dark Yellow in your Layers palette after the brush setup and color chosen, set your brush Opacity to 17% in the Brush Options bar at the top of Photoshop and paint roughly over the canvas as shown below.

Repeat this process several times. Replacing the brush pressure to give some texture and depth in the background until you are satisfied with the results. Let your creativity be your guide, remember we'll put the text there, so try to give a contrast color on the text..

Add a Layer Mask by clicking the Add Layer Mask icon at the bottom of the Layers Palette. Restore your brush Opacity to 100%, then select GrungeBorders Brush.

Drop the Brush Opacity down to 20% or until you feel just right.

Create a new layer above the layer dark yellow, give the name of Grunge. Replace the brush color to white (by pressing the D or X key if they have not become a default). Choose one of the brushes that we downloaded with 100% Opacity.

Next we'll try to be -let's say- a lil' bit creative by adding photos. Here's the photograph I've downloaded for you...

Hold down the Alt key and clicking-and-dragging the mask from one layer to the other so that we can copy the mask that we had created.

Gothic Wedding Invitation

Click the lock icon located between the Layer Thumbnail and Layer Mask in the Photo layer. This will enable us to move our pictures without damaging the mask that we make.

Put your photo on the left side half of the paper invitations or whatever you want how good, then use the GrungeBorders Brush on Layer Mask.

Once more... I wanna add a little old manuscript in the above photo and diluting it so that there is impressed scribbles on paper.

Rubi Tile Cutter

Rubi Tile CutterI have been using tile cutters for this two months. They are much simpler than wet cutting. They are lightweight, don't do a sloppy mess, and you can save directly to the hands when cutting.

TS60 is a little more expensive than what you would pay for a rate cut, but HomeDepot or Lowe over the quality of the league. Budget cutters are hard to use, and you are often difficult to completely cut off.

TS60 is a good thing because it can reduce the 18" tile on the diagonal.. It's better to get a piece of a sample to see if it will work. Porcelain to be found only when wet. Jump to http://rubitilecutter.com/ when you need more information about this tool. Have a gorgeous day to you all guys :)

Best LED Grow Lights of 2010

Best LED Grow Lights of 2010In this modern times, it is a hi-possibility to make plants grow without compromising any time even though we are in winter and without the sun. Plants can grow through the process of photosynthesis. In spring, all kinds of grain can be grown with the many and beautiful and blooming. This is all we can do with this LED Grow Lights technology.

Plants can also grow well when faced with these types of LED lights. The greenhouse effect could be overcome by using a light source for indoor plants. Under low light and very strong sun, the plants wither and die because of lack of water.

To simulate this kind of artificial light, the plants should be placed in a dark room for some time in a chemical treatment after exposure to the light. Do not worry about the effect of temperature produced, it's not producing enough heat to destroy everything into a mess like this now. This does not require light in large-scale, less expensive and still can be consumed in the long term.

Many have chosen to use LED lights by joining http://www.myhydroponicgardening.com for their house plants needs. Green is the color of this century. It might help in reminding us of how fulfilling it is to take care of the environment.

Cheap Homeowners Insurance Quotes

Cheap Homeowners Insurance QuotesAlthough homeowners insurance rates have increased in recent years, you can always find an insurance provider owns and affordable prices. Here's how... cheap homeowners insurance quotes works.

To search for homeowners insurance providers' and at an affordable price, you should take the time to compare quotes from different suppliers. You can visit your local agencies to request a quote, or a phone call, but will take a few hours of your time and you probably will not get the cheapest price.

The best way to find affordable insurance provider and their owners to get online where you can get a home insurance quote in minutes. My first recommendation is to go to an insurance comparison website. On this site you spend a few minutes to fill out a simple form with your insurance information, then wait for your offer.

Gain from insurance comparisons are as follows:

* Simply fill out the form to get quotes from several suppliers, rather than fill out a form for each supplier.

* Most insurance sites compared to companies that are affiliated with-rated, so you know the companies they represent can be trusted and would provide good service.

* The best comparison sites let you talk with insurance professionals online or by phone, so you can get answers to your questions and tips on homeowners insurance to reduce your premiums.

Before buying a policy, make sure you understand. Read it, or get an employee of a company explain it to you, to make sure you get all the coverage you need.
