My talents with Photoshop Elements isn't too great with editing pictures, but I have figured out how to do Word Art from a tutuorial that WAS on the internet. When DS went to watch it the second time, it was gone, so I shared my knowledge with her, so that she can make her own word art.
Today is the final day of the Phindy's Place 3D Challenge card. I've had a plan for several days, and had my image colored. I finally got to make the card last night. This is my first easel card.
Isn't this image something we are all familiar with? One cookie is never enough, you need at least one in each hand. Phindy catches childhood memories so well in her images. He's colored with Copics and papers are cardstock I had on hand and scraps out of my scrap box. The ribbon is from Walmart. I decided to cut him out and raise him up off my Spellbinders scalloped circle. When I saw this Word Art by Create with TLC, I knew that it was just the PERFECT sentiment for my card. Then I got to thinking about what to use for the stop on my easel card.
NO, the cookies aren't real. I'd have eaten them if they had been. When I go to Hobby lobby, I shop the WHOLE store. I couldn't find any cookie embellishments to use in the Scrapbooking department, but over in the aisle with wooden crafts I found these perfect little wooden hearts. I painted them with acrylic paints that I matched to the color of the cookies in the image. I then covered them with Alene's Paper Glaze and sprinkled the tee-tiniest glass beads on them for a sugar effect.
Then I remembered cookie eating by every child I've ever known that included sugar EVERYWHERE and "sprinkled" some sugar on the cookies in the image, a few on his face and of course down his overalls. He VERY much reminds me of MonkeyM00, my grandson.
Tomorrow is the grand tour of TM as it is today. Off to prepare for WW Thursday. Have a great day.
Thanks for stopping by and I love hearing from you.
