Candy Cane Alphas for Advent

I haven't been very creative this year, but I still wanted to offer some alphas during December.  I am offering a different candy cane alpha for the 24 days of advent.  Here is a preview of the different alphas.

These alphas will be my contribution to Worldwide Christmas Scrapbooking Freebies.

Come back December 1st for the first alpha.  You can see all my freebies for this event through the advent calendar tag.

Animated Mosaic Glitter Tile

I like to use mosaic glitter tiles as fills in my animated alphabets, and I recently learned an easier way to make them.  It requires more plugins than my original tutorial.

Plugins Needed:
Xero Fritillary plugin
Simple Filters plugin

1. Open 100 x 100 canvas with transparent background.

2. Fill canvas with color of choice.

3. Use Xero Fritillary plugin to make the mosaic pattern. My settings are for a 10 x 10 tile.

Granularity = 10
Aggression = 40
Tesselation = 30
Variation = 50

4. Do steps 13 -19 in my original Animated Mosical Glitter Tile tutorial.

Here is my tile.
