Seeing Gingham

Hello!
How is everyone today?  Hope you had a great weekend!   We had such nice weather where we are, a bit hot, but I got to spend some uninterrupted time with hubby and kids, so that was a nice change.

Today we are sponsoring the Digital Tuesday challenge, and the theme is GINGHAM.  Ooooh, I LOOOOVE gingham, it just makes any image cuter!

I made a little sumpt'n with the Plush Panda pre-colored image and digi papers.

The black splotch pattern paper is a bit of a tight repetitive pattern, so to make it look less that way, here is what I did.
  1. In Photoshop, set your initial canvas size to a little bigger than the size of paper you want cut for your project.
  2. Add the PNG digi paper of choice on a new layer.
  3. Rotate the placed digi paper.  I rotated the digi paper at about 20-25 degrees within my Photoshop canvas area.
  4. Save the canvas area (your full document) as a PNG (or JPG). My canvas size was 4.5 x 2.5 since I wanted a 2x4 piece.
  5. Place your new saved PNG (or JPG) into whatever document you use for printing color images or papers. I use Word.
  6. Now you have a custom size digi paper that is printed at an angle. This way you don't have to waste any digi paper by cutting a piece at an angle.


MATERIALS I USED:
  • IMAGE: Plush Panda
  • CS/PAPER: white, digi paper from image set, black, green
  • INK: printer
  • ACCENTS/TOOLS: spellbinders eyelet squares, black gingham ribbon,Twinery twine, basic grey button, CTMH bitty brads, sewing machine, foam dimensionals

Thanks for visiting us today!  I hope you get a change to join the Digital Tuesday challenge this week!
