The party was a delight tonight! We had a pool party and ordered pizza, had cake and ice cream, the kids dove for coins and played tag and fun was had by all! I will share a few photos later… but I am having a problem with my Photoshop!! If anyone has any suggestions: when I use my ‘rectangular marquee tool’ and select a portion of the photo that I want to crop- when I release the mouse, the dotted rectangle turns into a dotted oval, and the option to crop is no longer there. Also, I can’t select any area to create a brush preset. I can’t figure out what I did.. and I have tried restarting etc, and that is not working. PLEASE leave me a comment or email me if you know what the heck I am doing wrong!
So for the party, I wanted to design a screen for my Yudu to put on some t-shirts as well as a little book documenting the party,etc. well, so I put together 2 different screens and burned them last night. These are the screens:
We did kinda a pirate party…but I was playing around with some different skull and crossbones art. I had fun, and probably spent too much time on the whole design part.
Picked up a bunch of t-shirts at Target (Hanes are like 5 for $6) and just went for it. Eric was helping me as I was just using one color, and placing jewels on the girl/pink ones. We ran out of t-shirts and didn’t have enough sizes for those who wanted them-so it was back to target and then the party was underway, so eric took over the screening.
I guess that Cory suggested they start adding more colors, and by the 8th t-shirt, they had ALL the colors on the screen from white/black, yellow and pink to gun metal and silver metallics. And they turned out SO cool! The trick w/ the Yudu, is that you have to be willing to play with it a little-get the feel for it. we screened about 20 items this afternoon- including the back leg of my pink shorts that i picked up at target this afternoon as well for $9bucks, just behind the knee.
these are all the colors that they were putting on the screen by the end...i NEVER would have tried that. but i am in love with the result! as you can tell by the looks on their faces, they are hooked! (liz, are you impressed?)
I loved watching the creative juices get flowing as the Yudu possibilities start to swirl. Guess what Chanel… eric screened the shirt you sent- it turned out awesome; the metallics make it look sparkly! we are officially out of the hot pink ink.
