Rachel Anderson Kindness Thoughts Tag & Timeline

I've had a tag idea in my head for a few days. Had to get it out so to speak. I was inspired by the song lyric
" Don't mistake kindness and compassion for weakness." by the Band Times Of Grace. I was also inspired by the video Live In Love by the same band. If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it. It has a powerful message in the video.
We can certainly all use more kindness in our lives.
Because of all of that rumbling around in my head - I felt I had to create something with it.
I have used the artwork of Rachel Anderson which you can purchase at CDO.
I also used a scrap called A Little Bit Of Kindness available at SWEET SHOPPE. The scrap is by Kristin Cronin-Barrow.

Let's all try to be more kind in our lives - to those we love & to those we meet daily & to strangers.

Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
I am using a tube by Lisa Cree.
The tube can be purchased at

Tube of choice.
Monti Blinds Mask which you can find
on her website

Open up your tube of choice.
Open a 600x600 new image.

colors white or color of choice.
You do want them the same color.

Make sure its on the finest point.
On your materials palette, select a light color.
Draw out the envelope lines along
the top two corner.
You want to come down to the middle and
then back up to the other corner.

Back on the materials palette,
choose a red color for both palettes.
On your shape tool, we want a heart
preset shape.

Draw out a heart to place in the
middle of your envelope.
Convert to raster.
Move if needed to place in center
of the envelope.

Resize your tube 93% or as needed.
Paste beside your envelope layer.

beside it.
Add a drop shadow to the tube.

envelope layer.Fill with your heart color.
