I used a balloon stamp and then paper pieced the balloons. Thought that came out so cute! Then I hunted through my "stamp" book to see if I had a drink glass. Of course, I did! Who knew? But there it was stamped in my book and I found it easily - this one is from one of those round just rite stamps that you press into a wooden holder. I bought several on closeout somewhere so I don't know if they even make them anymore, but I forget about them as I have them in a little box all their own - I can't find any way to put them in my filing cabinet. I cut the glass out after I copic colored it and its on dimensionals. Looked through all my word stamps and liked the size, style and what this one said. Then I sprayed the entire half of the inside with this wonderful new spray I bought - Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz (Sparkle). They come two colors to a package. This one makes everything look like a fairyland! I think the photo gives you an idea but I took a close up -
It's not real clear because of all the sparkle! I covered the other half of the inside so only this half would sparkle! Just know I do not keep track of paper names or companies. I am fortunate to just figure out what I want to use without keeping track of whose they are!
So here are the copics I use: E00, E11, E31, E35, E18, E29, E50, E51, E53, E57, R20, R27, R17, YR07, YG13, W7, W3, W5, W0, W2, SPICA11, 08, 03, 00.Got to give credit where it's due. It's a little involved for how I got there but here goes : I was on the creativepassionclasses.com site hunting around for freebies and hoping I might find that Tami Taylor was going to do some more classes. Well, I got lucky and found both!! Tami's new class starts in January and is a kind of continuation of "Got Glue" except this time is for pay which is fine with me! I love her stuff! She's a bit off the wall like yours truly and I really connected! But the other thing I found was free and following that link took me to here: http://debbiehodge.com/2011/03/creating-circular-text-in-pse
That stands for photoshop elements which you can get for a free 30 day trial - no strings. I spent a few hours getting exactly what I wanted because I didn't spend anytime learning how to use the program. Just if it wasn't exactly what I wanted when it made the circle, it was too time consuming to figure out how to edit the text so I just dropped out and started again. Much quicker. I have to tell you that I was a Mechanical Designer (draftsman) and had worked on computer drawing things since they first became available in 1980! After that there wasn't much working on the board! It is real archaic to me to work with drawing programs available to the general public after the 3d modeling ones I worked with. I am not a snob, its just the truth.
You will see "The Secret to Creating a Circular Text in Photoshop Elements" by Pattie Knox on this page. That is what I printed and worked with. I know I didn't miss giving anyone credit on this. It took quite a few tries until I got the text size and type that I liked and I had to be sure my Edwin stamp fit inside! I was also limited to using 8 1/2 x 11 paper (that's what my printer holds) He just made it! Don't know how I could exist without a stamp positioner!
Thank you all for being so faithful and following me! It is just an uplift to get such super comments from you! Hugs to you all, Barb F
