|That's me with sweet little Gabe. |
So I used my Sily to cut out fabric and heat transfers to make little Gabe onenies with 1. A tie 2. A bow tie 3. A Michigan State Block S 4. A car. Now, this is where I would normally show you a photo of the goods. Well I would, except I forgot to take the damn photo. WHATEVER! Ugh.
What I did remember to take a photo of was the Subway Art that I made using Picnik.com, featuring all the birth info. So, I'll show you how to do that instead!
Now, you could make Subway Art in Photoshop or Publisher (if you have access), hell you could really even do it in Word, but I wouldn't.....You could certainly make it in the Sily but there you couldn't have it in a jpeg to have printed as a photo.
OMG, I'm annoying myself with that last paragraph. On to the "tutorial", if you can call it that...
1. Go to Picnik.com
3. Upload a blank jpeg. I made mine in Microsoft Publisher
|Ok--I know you can't see it, but this is my blank 11x14 jpeg file. Just right click to save and you'll be all set!|
4. Open the photo size jpeg you want--I used the 11x14 for my Subway Art. I usually add a little drop shadow frame so I know what I'm working with. You know, cause it's white and you can't see where it starts or stops?
|See the little drop shadow I added? Super helpful.|
5. Just start playing around. You need to give yourself time to figure how to work this program. One you get the swing of things, you'll love it!
|Rotate text, change up fonts and colors.|
|Not bad for my first try. This child is my straight up Guinea pig :)|
|I took this in our living room, but Gabe's room is close |
to the same color so I think it's gonna look awesome yo!
Thanks for being awesome and stopping by!
Big (Baby Gabe is here!) Smile,
