    Okay, Brenda, I will try this again. When I tried it (I thought!!) that way before, for some reason I could not manipulate more than one letter at a time. May have to wait until this afternoon or evening to get to it, but I will print out your comments above. Thanks!

    Brenda, and all. I tried it again, this time with a transparent background, and it worked like a charm. I did a whole alphabet in less than a half hour, including writing it out step by step as I went. I think the transparent background must have made the difference for me. I don't know. The only disadvantage with not having each letter on its own layer, is that you can't just drag the letters onto your new document. You have to select each one with the lasso tool, copy/paste. Not a hardship given how quickly making the set went. I will go back to my previous posting and edit it to reflect this simpler method. Thank you!!!

    Now we are on the same page!! Consider making a brush set Shar... then you don't have the lasso tool problem. I'm REALLY glad you enjoyed the outline. Thanks for all the input. B

    Thank you for the great tutorial. Your font looks great. I just got a new computer and was gone the past couple of days. Spent a litte time setting up today and hope to try it real soon. Love seeing new ideas for fonts. Thanks again.

    Thank-you for this. I have made the full alphabet - upper and lower case. Very clever.

    When you say to make a brush set, do you have to do it separately for each letter? Still new at this and not quite got my head around it.

    If you have all of your brushes on one page and want to turn them into a set you would need to lasso/select each one of them then do an EDIT> DEFINE BRUSH for each one of them. Assume you've probably got them on a transparent background. Because whatever you select will be a part of the brush.

    When you get all of them defined, then you would go to EDIT>PRESET MANAGER>BRUSHES. At that point, you'll see the brushes you just made and a bunch of them that were loaded from before. Click on all of the ones you just made. If they are all in order, just click on the first one, hit shift and click on the last one. Then click on SAVE SET and name them. For the ones I make, I always name them starting with my initial so, I know I made them.

    Trust if anyone else has some tips they will chime in. Have fun.

    What a great tut!! I just finished my attempt which is here:

    http://www.scrappersguide.com/forums...6&ppuser=13412

    I chose the word Colorado because of my sister's project that I am working on.

    I chose a gradient background just to break it up a bit.

    On the top word, I just filled in each letter with a different color using the paint bucket tool.

    For the second Colorado, I superimposed a picture over the doodle outlines to see what that would do.

    On the third layer, I superimposed a gradient to make the rainbow colors.

    For the fourth layer, I used a picture of Fisher's Peak in Colorado, cut out a small section, then moved the letters over that and applied a gold layer style.

    Thanks bunches Fox 57, and also to Shar for the translation! I'll be saving this one for future reference, have to add this one to my sister's picture book! Woo Hoo!!

    Oh no, Shar's rubbed off on you too? Woo hoo! Am sure she'll get a kick out of that when she sees it.
