"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

WATER BABIES / ADFD New Release & Challenge "Anything But A Card"...



Ahhh, my last post for today! Tammy has new images AND a new challenge over at A Day For Daisies' blog today! I used these adorable Water Babies to make a cute little iron on for a shirt for Miss Maisie! Her regrets for not modeling the shirt herself, but when I asked she said "no!" - which is her favorite word! I guess it was her inner diva who was really declining!

ETA - I've had some emails about the process for this, so here a little more info:

There are a couple ways I color digital images on my computer, both involve Photoshop or Pixlr, which is an online program like Photoshop. One way id what I call digital paper piecing... here's a link: http://snappystamper.blogspot.com/2011/07/digital-paperpiecing-101-using-pixlr-in.html

The other way & the way I did the little Bathing Beauties was to use the "paintbucket" tool in Photoshop. You choose your color & when you click on an enclosed area, it "dumps" paint into it and covers the whole space.

Once my image was how I wanted it, I printed it onto iron on transfer paper, printed it out and ironed it on! (With light transfers you need to horizontally flip your image before printing, but not with the dark transfer paper.)


   

Thanks for stopping by!
