Happy Mother's Day 2015! Celebrating the gift of mothers



Celebrations of motherhood have occurred throughout history, including in Greek and Roman times. In modern times, we celebrate mothers around the world on Mother’s Day. Whether you are celebrating for your own mother, a family member, a friend, or yourself, Mother’s Day is a special occasion that allows us to stop and appreciate all that moms do for us!



Without moms, the world would be so different. Mothers have a tendency to get stressed out, but it’s only because they want nothing more than to keep their families together. They work relentlessly to create comfortable homes, raise babies and children, and provide for their families while balancing work, life, and pregnancies. Without moms, there would be no life, and households just wouldn’t be the same.



For some of us, we celebrate Mother’s Day in memoriam of someone we loved dearly but who has passed on. For others, we spend Mother’s Day as a celebration of family unity with the people we love the most. For some, Mother’s Day is a special reminder of the gift of motherhood.



No matter who you are celebrating for this year, make sure to thank her for the sacrifices she’s made to contribute to her family. Mothers are the hardest workers with the most difficult job on the planet. An interesting dynamic that most mothers will say is absolutely true? That they would do it all over again in a heartbeat.



For a mother, there is no greater gift than her child’s life, love, and happiness. The bond cannot be broken, no matter what, and a mother will always love her child. Regardless of why or who you are celebrating, keep these things in mind and thank her for being a mom!

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 …

Paint By Shadow Canvases:
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.



When you…
