This morning I set myself the task of making a digital image of some kind.
if you have been following the blog, you'll know that this is something that I have wanted to be able to do, but never had the skills or computer software to do it.
That was until I had a bit of a brainwave...
I DO know how to upload images, and there are tons of free photo editing sites on the net.
armed with this encouragement,
I went to work.
I downloaded some images
(copyright free of course)
and chopped around their outlines using
to get the page.
This was after I had cut them out
After 'merging' them to create my little fairy chick, I went on to work on another site called Picnik. Picnik is by far my favorite for doing anything digital with your photos, sadly the site is closing in April, but until then you can
I added one of my own backgrounds and 'merged' the images together again.
She's really bright here but you can edit your colors etc as you want.
I even fiddled around with the background too...
(think that was back in FotoFlexer again)
and I added a little sign.
I added the text
(but kept a copy of the one like this so I can write different things on them)
then went over to another website called
Pixlr-O-Matic to add the effects to the look of the whole image.
to play there.
(just to warn you, it's very addictive once you start)
So these are what I made today...
Cool options don't you think.
But that's not all,
I made a really BRIGHT one too.
well it would be rude not to.
I think I may have found yet another arty addiction...
(poor Mr.P has lost his wife to art)
Hope you enjoyed these digital delights as much as I have making them,
and yes, for those of you who have been asking, they will go into print.
