Yeah... not much else to say.
Too bad not everybody appreciates what I was doing with this DA thing.
Thanks to all who has supported me, I put alot of time and effort into making nice resources for you all.

Will put the remaining things on my Twitter; twitter.com/ClaudiavanR
Might be back one day, but I highly doubt it.

Peace out xo
Hey guys! What's up? 
Been a while since I last talked to you guys, but I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm leaving to Portugal tomorrow.
I'll stay there for 3 weeks and I am super excited but a bit nervous at the same time.
I have never been on a plane before, so this is going to be my first time...

I don't think I'm gonna be able to make new resources while I'm there, but I might be able to upload the old collages I was talking about a while ago.

That's about it, I hope you guys have a great day and if I won't be able to update - I will be back in 3 weeks. :D

Hey guys! How are you all doing on this wonderful Sunday?
Today I found out that I have 7000 watchers at the moment, that is amazing.
I know I say it all the time, but thanks to all of you for the support.

There was something else I wanted to talk about....
Last year some troll reported all my collages and most of them got deleted.
I feel as if my gallery isn't complete without them because I love making collages.
Do you think it would be an idea to reupload these collages?

I would put the credits in there, so they won't get reported again.
I still feel it was bullsh*t, since there are thousands of collages on here that don't give credit.

I was thinking I could maybe do the same with my stock packs?
They got deleted too, even though they were all mine.... I was thinking maybe I could upload them all in one big pack?

Let me know if you would like me to do that or not, though I probaby will haha.

Enjoy the rest of your day, and thanks again! :D
Hi guys! Been a few days since I posted anything because of the surgery.
Figured I would give you guys a quick update on how i'm doing.
I feel a little bit better but it's still kind of up/down. In a few days I should be fine.
It wasn't as bad as I had anticipated but I wouldn't recommend getting a tonsillectomy and a nose operation at the same time haha.
I take 11 painkillers a day and honestly don't think I could do without them.
Wasn't able to talk much the last few days, I almost fainted and I couldn't really call out for help. That was kinda scary...

Anyway, I had some resources saved up so the plan is to upload those first.
Hopefully I will get back to making new stuff soon. :)

~ Claudia
Hey guys! How are you all doing today?
Just wanted to make a quick announcement to tell you guys that Missesglass now has over 6000 watchers!
My goal for this year was to reach that and it's only March...

I want to welcome all new watchers -there is a lot of content for you to download and there will be more in the future.
To all 'old' watchers: Thank you for staying with me and enjoying the stuff I upload, I wouldn't do it without all the support and lovely comments I receive all the time.
I appreciate it so much, it's such a good feeling to know that there are people out there who really enjoy what I make and find my resources useful.
I might take breaks every now and then, but I will always come back to this because you motivate me to do so.

That is about it, enjoy the rest of your day and keep on enjoying the resources I post ;)

What's up guys? Hope you all of you are doing well today.
This is just a quick update to let you guys know what's been going on lately.

If you are following me on Twitter you may already know that I will be having surgery soon.
In 2 weeks actually, I am really scared because I have never had surgery before.
For the past years I have had trouble breathing through my nose, but other than that I never had any problems with it.
Now, whenever I do something that requires energy (sport), I get out of breath really fast.
It really sucks, so they are going to do something to my nose that will hopefully make breathing easier for me.

Also going to get my tonsils removed. As an adult, this is not going to be fun.
I am trying to prepare for the worst, so that hopefully it won't be as bad as I think it will be.
I have no idea if I will be able to make new resources while I am recovering.
I will try to stack up on stuff, but I can't promise that.

I am also trying something new when it comes to resources, self made PNGs (different from mixed ones).
I usually find my images online and cut them out, but I am now trying to make them myself.
With this new 'project', I would like your opinion on something:

Do you want the PNGs to have text on them or not?
(if not, you could add your own text of course)
Obviously I could also do both but adding nice looking text does take more time.
Would love to know what you guys think!
Hey guys, the past few hours I was working on revamping my gallery.
I added some new folders and you can now browse each folder by year.
I think this will make my gallery more organized since I have so many stuff in there.
Also deleted most deviations from my featured folder, so don't get scared if it's a little empty looking - everything is still there in the right folder.

Enjoy browsing! ;)
Hey guys, well let me start by wishing you all a creative and happy new year! :)
It's January which means that I have been doing this whole thing for almost 3 years now.
That is amazing to me, I usually get bored with things after a while but I still really enjoy doing this for you guys.
I take more breaks than I used to, but I don't see the point in posting something that I don't really like.

For those of you who never saw any of my older work, I would suggest to take a look at it.
I have some gorgeous scrapbook scans that I still love today.
missesglass.deviantart.com/gal…

I also have an update for you guys, as I was collecting the stats of 2012, I have noticed a lot of deviations don't have a .ZIP file with them. This is because at the time I posted them on my website.
I don't work on my website anymore, so I have decided to add the .ZIP files.
Turns out that I can not add a .ZIP file to an existing deviation because all the files I add have to be the same extension (so in this case I could only change it to .JPG). This means that I have to delete them all and repost them before I am able to add a .ZIP file to it. In other words: You will be getting a lot of 'new' stuff in your Watch box because of this. I do think that there are lot of you who don't have them yet so it might not be a huge problem. It never used to be like this though, what the hell DA?

As for the stats, 2012 was a really good year for Missesglass.
I only used the resources for the stats, because the rest doesn't matter to me as much but;
In 2012 my deviations received 515,397 views, 216,854 downloads and 24,843 favorites.

That is amazing to me, and I have compared these stats to the ones from 2011 (Downloads+Favorites) and it turns out that there has been an increase of 350%. I hope 2013 will be even better, but I think it will be hard to top 2012.
I will continue to do Twitter exclusives so if you are not following me already, you are missing out ;)

I feel as if this post is kind of long, so you can have a cookie if you read it all.
Have a great day you guys and I got a new set of textures coming to you soon. :D
I have decided to do the collage tutorial first because I did not feel inspired enough to make anything else.
I already started working on it and I'm hoping to get it done in a few days - if I can motivate myself to work on it that is lol.
I posted a preview of the collage I will use for the tutorial on my Twitter, so if you haven't seen it yet - go check it out!

twitter.com/ClaudiavanR

The collage turned out pretty decent in my opinion but I would love to get your opinion on it :)
Hey guys! How are you all doing today?
I am thinking of making some tutorials for you guys.
People have been asking me to write a tutorial for a while now and since I don't really feel inspired to make new resources at the moment, I figured I could write some tutorials instead.
I have heard people want to see a tutorial on collages, textures, etc so my question for you is:

What do you want to see?

I am planning on doing more in the future, but I can only do one at a time so I would like to hear your opinion. :)
Let me know and I will start working on it soon.

Hi guys! As you can tell by the title I have some news for you all:
As I am typing this I have exactly 5000 watchers.
Thank you all for appreciating my (art)work over the past 3 years.
I know that for some people 5000 may not be a lot, but I worked so hard on getting to this point that for me it truly is an achievement.
I hope you will continue to support me in the future and I will try to keep posting resources for you all to enjoy.

Have a great day!

Before I forget; go check out my twitter for an exclusive brush set!
Twitter exclusive 5 by Missesglass

Twitter: twitter.com/ClaudiavanR
First of all I want to say thank you to everyone who has favorited my latest deviation.
Been a while since I uploaded something that had the response that this one did, so thank you! <3

I want to get more into the social media and I was thinking to upload some Twitter exclusives?
If you follow me on Twitter you get all resources a week before I post them here AND I got some cool Twitter exclusives to share with you all. I am not the type of person who would spam Twitter but since I have so many watchers on DA I figured it would be possible to get some following for Twitter as well. And reward the people that follow me there.

For the first 'Twitter exclusive' I got something that I have never done before and I think it will be a good thing to add to your artwork.
So what are you waiting for? Go click that 'follow' button and stay up to date with new resources and much more! :D

Hey guys! How are you all doing today?
I hope you all are doing well, I have some great news..

I got a job!!! :D :D
I am seriously so excited and happy to start a new chapter in my life.
What does this mean for this DA account I started years ago?
During the week I won't have any time to create anything because I work 'till 5PM and when I get home I have my horse to take care of as well. I am going to be super busy and it will take a while for me to adjust to it, but I know I will be fine.

During the weekends I hope I will be able to create some new stuff for you guys.
I haven't been this active recently anyway but I figured I would let you guys know what's going on with me.

I hope you all have a great weekend and hopefully I have some stuff to share with you.
Also you guys should follow me on twitter, I will be posting all kinds of stuff over there;
twitter.com/ClaudiavanR ;)

Bye guys! xo

Check out this texture I just made;
Texture - 0311 by Missesglass
So my website is down again.
The bandwidth limit has been exceeded and there's nothing I can do at the moment because I am already at the highest amount (10GB).
I am not going to change hosts because I think my host is great.
The thing I would have to do is rebuild the complete website and upload all the images elsewhere (photobucket/imageshack).
This would take me hours though so I don't think I will do that.

Maybe I will just make a new layout and rebuild the site from there, but at the moment I have no inspiration to open up Photoshop.
In the meantime you can visit the link below where I uploaded most of the latest scans and textures.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience but it is what is is..

Hey guys!
So after hours and hours of work, my website is finally up and running.
I did not add all of my resources (yet) because that would have probably taken me an extra week.
I do plan on adding them in the future though and I also have some new stuff that I will post either tomorrow or later this week.

I appreciate the feedback you guys have given me over the last few years, and I probably would not be making resources today if it wasn't for that, so thank you! I do feel that it is time to move on to something else now, it has been fun.
I will update you guys every now and then on what new stuff I have posted, but if you want to stay up to date I would suggest to keep an eye out on my website.

Here is the link to my website, go visit it and tell me what you thought of it.

missesglass.sky-song.org/

I love reading messages on my tagboard so go there and leave a comment (if you want, of course) <3

I hope you guys enjoy the website as much as I enjoyed making it, have a great day
Hey everyone!
I am working very hard on the website at the moment but I would like to have your input on something.

I have posted several stock packs on this account, photographed by me. I did edit the coloring in photoshop to make them look more interesting. Of course I will be posting these and more on the website. Here comes the question:

Would you prefer the original images without the editing so that you can put your own actions/coloring on them OR do you want me to just post the edited photos?
I will say that the original images aren't nearly as good as the ones I posted here, but you can do alot of cool things with actions.

Any feedback on this subject would be very much appreciated, I hope you all have a great day and I am hoping to get the website up later this week ;)

~ Claudia
Hey guys!
I'm sorry I haven't posted anything the last week, I have been busy with some other stuff.
I have pretty much finished up the layout, I changed some things though so it's going to look slightly different.
I also found a host, which was most important to me, so once that is all set up I can start working on the actual website.
Besides that I have been working on some exclusive resources for the website so you guys who are already familiar with my work, can enjoy some new content as well.

Once my website is done I will post the link of course, so you can go check it out.
I think once a week I will let you guys know what kind of new stuff I made, but I don't think I will be posting resources here anymore.
One of the reasons for that is because om some troll reporting my work and I am going to put a lot of time and effort in to my website so I would like you guys to go visit my website instead of my DA.

Is there anything you guys would like to see? :)
At the moment I have some mixed pngs (been a long time since I last made those), a PNG set and a few grungy styled textures.

This is just a quick heads up, the website is happening and it should be up soon.
Enjoy the rest of your day,

Claudia
So today I got another 2 of these lovely notes but this time it was about my stock packs.
Are they f*cking serious? I made these pictures MYSELF and they are claiming I am using somebody else's work? F*ck that, with the collage thing I could at least in some way understand their problem but with these pictures... Tell me what you guys think about that?
Looks like I need to ask myself for permission lol, but I am not even going to bother. :(

I'm sorry about me complaining again but this is even more ridiculous..
So I got a bunch of notes from DA saying that most of my collages has been put into some kind of inactive state or something because I need permission to use the pictures I am using.
Can anybody tell me what kind of bullsh*t this is? I have been posting collages for over 2 years now and all of a sudden it's a problem?
There are thousands and thousands of deviations on here that use celebrity pictures, should they all be removed because we are not supposed to use them, even if it's just for personal use?

I don't even know what to say, I am not happy about it to be completely honest.
If I can't even show off my artwork without this crap saying I need to have permission, I might as well quit DA.
What am I supposed to do, email every photographer in the world for something as small as this? GTFO...

I will keep you guys updated, if any of you guys have a website and would like to host me -Let me know, I might just leave DA and make a website instead where I can show off everything I create without having to worry about stuff like this. <3

On a different note; I don't have any new resources at the moment, but I will try to make something soon.
Thanks :)
Hello everybody!
I just woke up and I finally hit the 4000 watchers mark, in fact I have 4030 watchers as I write this.
When I went to bed, I had 3998 so I gained a lot of new watchers in just one night.
I'm not even sure why but my latest texture has over 300 favorites in less than a day, that is just AWESOME!
You guys are awesome, thank you for adding my resources to your favorites. Looks like I need to make more in the future, because you guys really seemed to like it.

I'm not going to lie, waking up and seeing that my latest work was received so well and gaining so many watchers in one night, really did put a smile on my face. <3

Welcome to my new watchers, hope you enjoy my gallery! And of course to my old watchers for supporting me for a long time.
My account is 4 years old, but I have been only doing this for 2,5 years.

If you are wondering where the scrapbook scans are, they are coming.
At least I hope so, I think I just need to re-install my printer or something but that shouldn't be to much of a hassle.

So thank you once again and I hope you all have a lovely weekend! :love:
