Last Minute Resolutions

I know that everyone is writing their 2011 lists of wishful thinking and hopeful goals but I spent today trying to cross an old resolution off my to do list. This particular one is so old, I can't even tell which year it's carried over from.

Learn to use some fancy photo editing software.

So today's project to learn to write in clouds was born.

 One in Hebrew and one in English just for comparison. This stuff is easier once you get the general idea, but time consuming and frazzling if you've never opened the software before. Luckily I didn't invested in expensive Photoshop but instead use the open-source GIMP for my photo manipulation.The base photo is a free stock image that I found fairly quickly but the clouds are all me.

I'm off to see if I can't use this new nifty skill to make a last minute birthday gift for a 12 year old boy. That's right, I absolutely believe 12 year old boys like their names written in puffy clouds above fields of poppies.

    Very pretty and a fun idea for a wall hanging! I bet I could figure this out in Photoshop too.

    Thanks Lisa. I remember seeing a few really cute customized prints with a child's name and thinking "I should learn how to do that." So I did. Highly recommended.

    That's pretty cool, seeing as I already have Photoshop Elements I'll have to see if I can find a tutorial on how to do that.
