There is an elf in Santa’s crew that has a serious addiction to anything sweet. His name is SweetTooth Evergreen. He’s always the first to volunteer in tasting Mrs Claus pies, cookies and fudge recipes. He has the current position of pastry supplier in the North Pole. That’s a dream job for him! He fills his little sleigh everyday and delivers candy, brioches, donuts and everything a sugar craving enthusiast could wish for. That’s a demanding job, but it helps him stay fit because, he often dips his hand in his deliveries… Every time you see SweetTooth, he’s either munching on a candy cane or chewing some caramels.
Today was a particularly tiring day for SweetTooth, he had tons of deliveries planned! It seems like everyone was baking something sweet today in the North Pole. He started at sunrise and went back and forth all day, filling his sleigh, going up the hills and walking in knee-deep snow until evening came.
Since that was by far his most stressful day of the year, SweetTooth really went overboard with his addiction. He ate way too much candy. He was hoping the sugar would give him extra energy to make it through the day, but by the end of the day, his stomach was really upset. When he finally made it home after his last run, he went straight to bed, falling in an exhausted sleep. His sleep that night however wasn’t restful, he stirred and stirred and had nightmares after nightmares. He dreamt he was lost in a candy cane maze, trying to make his way through. It was an obstacle course, slipping on syrup, sinking in marshmallow, trying to avoid a gingerbread men attack. And then came the nougat shower and the bees!!! Chasing poor SweetTooth around the maze. All night he ran. All day he had walked. He woke up in a sugary sweat, tired like he never imagined he could be.
That night he made a resolution. Never eat that much sugar again? Nope. He planned to motorize his sleigh. But he did decide to avoid eating sweets before going to bed though…
Today’s freebie is a little set of Photoshop actions (PSE compatible) called North Pole tales 🙂
This is the Ice Fairy touch action, cold with a light snow layer you can turn off.
This is the Elves Lodge action, warm and cozy.
Candy Cane Dream action, a touch of sweetness and little dreamy.
Why not abuse and play all three? Just like SweetTooth did… It won’t give you nightmares 🙂
A little elfin advice though… Use the layer masks to remove tint from skin, it’s always nicer! Step into the Candy Cane Maze HERE, good luck!
