On the Ninth Day of Christmas!


PERSONALIZED OFFICE ART

Supply List

Basic Frame (1.00)
Photoshop or Photoshop Elements

DIY Alpha or Font
Photos

Are you looking for that perfect gift for dad, or maybe you're searching for yet another way to gift your photos, well have I got an idea for you. Using Photoshop, a wonderful tutorial from Paula Gilarde and a little bit of creativity you can turn your words and your photos into art, that any loved one would appreciate! Start by choosing the word you wish to turn into art. Then you will need at least one photo for each letter of that word, that in someway relates to the word you have chosen or the person you are gifting. Open your photos in photoshop and then decide on a font or alpha. Don't have photoshop or photoshop elements...no problem click here for a free 30 day trial. Now I have used a DIY alpha by Pattie Knox called Text Bytes No. 17 or by following Paula's tutorial, you can use any font installed on your computer! Next open Paula's tutorial and follow each of the steps outlined by Paula and repeat them for each letter of your text. Once you are done you may need to re size your document based on the size of frame you will be using. And you may choose to place a border stroke around the edge to make your word art pop and presto, all you have to do is PRINT!

Paula has tons of great ideas just like this one, waiting for you in
Paula's Hybrid Corner on the Get It Scrapped forum. If you are interested in digital scrapping but aren't sure where to start, then these FREE tutorials are just right for you! Leave a comment in today;s thread to be entered in the drawing for $30.00 towards any Get It Scrapped Class...See you Tomorrow!

Amy, you inspire me. I need to pull out all the lessons from Paula and get busy on this idea. I love it.

This is a fantastic and simple idea. I bet a lot of people already have frames that aren't being used. I am inspired.
