Looking for a Fun Mother’s Day Outing? Explore a Paint by Shadow Event!


Here at RapidStudio, we know how special those moms are. Whether you’re celebrating for a family member, spouse, or friend, finding a fun Mother’s Day outing can sometimes be a challenge. We’ve looked around, too, and then we realized the perfect event was right under our noses!



RapidStudio hosts several Paint by Shadow events throughout the year, and we’re actually presenting another one on May 11, 2015. This event is conveniently close to Mother’s Day, and it offers a fun, relaxing atmosphere and an event that virtually anyone can enjoy.



First, we should probably explain exactly what a Paint by Shadow event is. You’ve probably heard of “paint by number” activities, and Paint by Shadow is somewhat similar. Designed to facilitate creativity in a more mature audience, instead of applying color or paint that coordinates with a number, you have a shadow to use as a guideline. The shadow is placed on a professional quality canvas and is designed to be painted over. After you’ve painted the canvas, it looks like an all-original, freehand masterpiece. Plus, you’ll both get to take your paintings home to keep forever.



As you can imagine, this is a fun event for amateur artists and even seasoned professionals. You don’t need any special skills to come join an event, just a willingness to try something new and have fun! The mom in your life is welcome to come give Paint by Shadow a try - we think you’ll both have a great time!



Our May 11, 2015, Paint by Shadow is filling up nicely, but we still have room! Our Paint by Shadow event is a fun, reasonably priced event that you’ll both remember for the times to come!!

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

RapidStudio and CraftRoutes got back in touch with their inner artist in Pretoria last week.
CraftRoutes, a specialist arts and crafts shop in Pretoria, invited Paint-by-Shadow to be the flagship product at their annual exhibition in the Kolonnade Shopping Mall, Montana Park.


Our largest size (80 x 120 cm) canvas was placed on the stand and throughout the 6 days of exhibiting, the canvas was painted by myself (product developer), Sue Peddle (owner of CraftRoutes) and all the sales staff from the store.


The King Protea image was developed for Sue and her shop, which reflected the mood of Heritage Day.  This image also show cases the Proudly South African product Paint-by-Shadow truly is.




Have you always wanted to be an artist but thought it was too difficult?
We have developed an innovative new product called “Paint-by-Shadow. Paint-by-Shadow is a great starter product that takes any of the initial apprehension and unknowns out of the painting process.
