A Bit of a Change...!

You may notice, I've started to replace the small image and watermark with a coloured image as I don't think the watermark was working - too easy to clean off and I think you get a better idea of the image when it's coloured - a bit like the rubber stamps with the image on the wooden handle!
Hope you like this way of displaying my images.

Instructions for watermarks

It's in a .png format. Take care not to re-save it as a jpg (very easily done!)as it will no longer be transparent.

Save it to a convenient location, like your desktop or a file in your 'photos' folder.

Take your photo and save it.

Open it in your graphics program..

Open watermark.

Click 'copy' on watermark and MINIMIZE or CLOSE watermark.

Click on photo and 'paste' . You watermark will appear in the centre of your photo (and possibly the wrong size too as I make them big for a good clean resolution when reduced).

Use your 'move' tool to move it to where you want. On my program the same tool can alter size too.

Once happy with the watermark's size/position, 'save' photo with a title and in a place you will find it again.

Southern Gals Challenge - Baby Baby...!

This week the Southern Gals have turned their attention to all things maternal - and that means babies!

As you probably know. I have one or two digi-stamps of babies.....and also baby-themed digital paper kits, but this time I've used one of my Eiglas digi-stamps, called 'A Little Secret...' portraying a pregnant young woman, which was actually a bespoke drawing I did for a friend who was making a card for one of her pregnant friends.

Looking at it now, I wished I'd put a bow on it too and I shall, on the 'real' one!  I may take another photo later.  Anyway, I'm sure the cards over at Southern Gals are much better than mine anyway. Why not go have a look?

Southern Gals - Things With Wings!

It's that time of the month again!  The lasses at Southern Gals have a theme of 'Things with Wings' this week and in honour of this occasion I have launched a new collection of digis the Eiglas Faeries.

Being of a 'certain age' I have fond memories of the illustrations in 1950's 'faery-tale' books and as I have two willing and able models to myself most days, I thought it would be nice to make some 'faery' drawings with a 1950's feel.

This card is the debut of my 'Bobbikin'. He's only a baby faery and is just sitting on his toadstool trying to think up mischief.  I hope you like him although I've already had some 'eeukk's directed at his antennae so he's available 'naked' too (although the 1950's faeries did have them!)!

Please do pop over to Southern Gals - they're an incredibly talented  team and will inspire you to even greater pieces of art!

The model for my 'Bobbikin' was, again, my Ada although he wanted to be a boy!  He's coloured with my Copics but this particular image I printed onto glossy paper too. The bp is Kay & Co from their 'Mega-pad' grunge selection.

Hope you like him and you trip 'down under'!
