Silhouette Painter's Apron ...

Pin It

Thought I'd share with ya ...
My very first Silhouette Project.

My pal ...
Di ... aka  The Cat Lady ...
(the picture tells it all...lots-o-cats)
needed a gift for her niece's birthday awhile back.
To be honest ... she's my best customer.  Her family is really
large and she's always got a birthday or wedding she needs things for.

I'm what you call ... her 
"Neighborhood Last Minute Boutique".

She wanted to personalize a painter's smock for her niece ...
who loves to ... how do you say it? ... er... paint.


She chose a cute pink apron and matching bag.


So ... it was time to break in the new Silhouette.
Of course ... it took me awhile.  I had to figure out what all the 
buttons did.  Yeah ... it definitely took me awhile!


I cut out the letters using freezer paper.
I knew I'd never get them straight ... so hence the blue tape.
I might add ... this was before I discovered transfer tape ... or even
weeding tools.  Yeah I was roughing it ... lol.


Ironed it on ... looks okay so far.


Used a regular paint brush to fill in the stencil.
I know what you're thinking ... I should have used a stencil brush.
I know ... I know... I have one now.


But ... all in all ... it turned out sort of okay ... at least for a
first effort.

I've decided ... don't be afraid to mess up ... although it's a bit
scary when you're doing it for someone else.
Just make sure you learn from all of your mistakes ... do a little
researching ...  (Google) ... and the next time ... it'll be a little easier ...
and hopefully ... a better result.

Okay ... I have a  question ... I'm mulling over the
name ... or watermark ... or whatever it's called that I put on my photos.

Do watermarks really serve a purpose?
As you may or may not have noticed ...
 each of the above photographs ...  has a different font. 
 (Just experimenting.)
  These are the fonts available on Google Albums.

I know other editing tools may have better fonts ... but most involve
downloading my pix from my albums first ... editing ... and then
uploading them back to my Google Albums to add to my blog.

I've noticed some blogs use the same ...
nice ... watermark designs on all their pictures.  

Anyway ... long story long ... if ya have any suggestions ... 
or tutorials ... on how to put together a great watermark ...
 give me a shout ... a call ... a holler back girl ... email ... comment.

Okay... sorry I'm done now.
