These Boots Aren't Made For Walking: Funky Witch Boot Printable

My nightly doodling continues and so does my obsession with the Recolor App. I decided to try my hand at a Witch Boot so I drew the outline, then filled it in with random doodles and colored in Recolor. The steps to do that are easy. 

I use my iPhone so these steps are based on that. 
  • Take a picture of your image using your phone
  • Open the Recolor App
  • In the upper right hand corner you'll see "Import"
  • Click, and then you can choose where you want to import from ( eg. Camera Roll). 
  • Use the options to clean up your image if you like
  • I've been using "Despeckle" which whitens and brightens your image. 


Then proceed to color your image! There are free options and pay options. I love the colors in the pay options but haven't purchased any yet. 

After I was done coloring my image I pulled it into PicMonkey and then added some additional graphics from my collection and voila! 


I duplicated the boot and flipped the image to make a pair, added a coordinating Witch Hat, Sentiment, and Frame  which  are all  from Designbundles.net Crafter's Delight Bundle. 

Image is free for you to use. It's sized to 8x10. If you do, I would love to see what you do w/ it!

Printable: Fall In Love With Fall




Who's ready for Fall besides me? Summer is OK but my favorite time of year is Fall, or Autumn if you prefer. The leaves changing color. The crispness in the air. Boots and sweaters. Bring it! The calendar is not quite there but I'm getting ready so I made a Fall printable using graphics from designbundles.net.   





It's sized 8x10. Click on the image to bring it to full resolution. PC Users Right Click to Save As. 

Keeping the folks in the path of Harvey in my thoughts.

Saturday Wine Humor



This week's party continues here.

My BFF sent a hilarious quote to me this week and it was serendipitous that Designbundles.net had the perfect set of graphics to go with it as their freebie of the week . You might say they were the perfect pairing, so I made this printable with her in mind. 

It's a great collection of wine themed graphics but it's only free to download for 5 more days!

Spring Is In The Air Printable and (Mini) PicMonkey Tutorial



Well it is somewhere right? Not in the Northeast which I understand is expecting quite the snow storm. And here in the PNW it's been rainy and cold. 

The calendar tells me there's a week until the beginning of Spring so I played around with "Dream Bouquet", a collection of watercolor flowers from designbundles.net. It's their freebie of the week (only free  for three more days!!)  and maybe some wishful thinking will speed Spring along? I also made a version with pink text. 


I created them in PicMonkey using a transparent background and then adding the images using the Add Overlay function. PicMonkey's not new so this may be old news but it's one of my go to tools.

Basic steps: 

1.) Go to PicMonkey. 

NOTE: It's free unless you want to upgrade to a Royale Membership which grants you access to additional features and fonts.  I had one, let it lapse and so far I'm good since you can add your own overlays and use most of your own fonts which was my main reason for getting it.  

2.) Select "Try Templates" 

3.) This will bring up pre-populated templates you can play with ( they'll indicate whether they're free or not) but you can also search / select what you want. I usually do printable 8.5x11 so I selected that from the Print Size pull down


4.) Once you've chosen your size, you want to make your background transparent which takes the click of a button: 


Under the "Basic Edits" option ( first one on the left) click on Canvas Color and then click on Transparent Canvas.  Your background will show as a grey and white checked pattern but this will not show once you print or use online. I prefer the .PNG format so that if I want to print on a colored or patterned paper it doesn't obstruct it. Of course if you want your background to be a color you choose that color from the slide bar that's shown. 


4.) Add your images using the Overlay tool. This is the butterfly, 4th option down the left side. There are many many free overlays within PicMonkey so you can mix and match between theirs and your own ; use just your own ; use just theirs. To use your own click on the Add Your Own button at the top and then you can use your library of either png or jpg images. 

From here it's a matter of adding, sizing, and layering your images and adding text. Using your own fonts is similar to using the Overlay tool but instead you click on the Tt on the left, choose Your Own on the fonts menu and go from there. 



C'mon  Spring! We KNOW you're out there!

Free Printable: Paris Is Always A Good Idea


This week's party continues here.

When my hard drive crashed in December and I had to re-build my fonts and graphics collection, I came upon the site Designbundles.net.  It's free and fee, meaning there are a bunch of free graphics bundles, vectors, SVG files  you can download for free, and there are packages you can buy. 

I created this fun Paris printable using the weekly free bundle "I Love Paris
