    Default Like I need another project ... pics

    So I was chatting with GiGi (who needs to post more here!) this morning and she shared some neat posters she's been making of her son and his sports (soccer, judo, karate). I was inspired to make one of Andrew. This is only going to be 12x18, as that was the biggest I could go with it. But I'm really happy with it!!!!!



    And here are my starter versions ...

    Went with a goldish colored one since they're the Golden Dragons




    Andrew hated it, and wanted this yellow (gross!!)




    But then we both agreed that this was much nicer




    However, the aspect ratio was off, so I did the one you see above instead. And that's what I've been doing all day (in addition to some edits for the picture of Andrew I want to frame and cleaning the kitchen. Here's the link to the editing project (that I've spent HOURS on) if you want to see it http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboa...d.php?t=297770)



    (I know you fellow JJs might have already seen this, decided that I should post it here too. )

    Will come back later to reply to more threads. And I just realized that I have two graduation cards to make so I think I might attempt that tonight. I also have some sewing projects. There are not enough hours in the day, I tell ya!

    For $2.99 I'm getting it 12x18 at Costco. Then I will go to Michaels/AC Moore when they have 50% of their frames and get a simple black rimmed frame for it.

    I'd love to do this for all of the kids and their sports now. If GiGi happens to see this thread, I'm hoping she'll share her work here. My poster pales in comparison to hers, she has some really fantastic ones!!!


    Doesn't that face of Andrew's just crack you up? He's such a funny boy!!!!!!

    I used a combination of Picture It and The Gimp. I wanted to do it all with The Gimp but there was a couple of things I didn't know how to do with the text (and I know Picture It really well)
