  • Oh Boy!

    O.K so I'm that newbie greedly gobbling up everyones offerings, begging for boy stuff, wondering how the hell people actually make this beautiful stuff. SO....I've tried a bit of boy stuff of my own (God I hope this baby due in August is a girl!).
    Anyway I've saved it all as pngs, and tried to add thumbnails using them but it was taking forever and a day to upload so i've added the thumbnails as jpegs (i don't really understand these file types).
    Some of these "embellies" are a bit dodgy but I'm trying to contribute here.. so you'll have to suffer my experiements. I'm happy to post them in whatever format i need to if anyone actually wants any of these creations. I'd love to do it in the format that just puts it stright into sbm - I need to downlad the embellishment maker thingy for that right?
    Anyway you should see attached thumbnails of these things...a toy guitar, a star, some toy tools, a builders hat, firemans hat and toy fireengine. I'll see if anyones interested (i've warned you its all a bit rough) and if so i will spend the time over the weekend working out how to post them here in a format people can use.
    Please I could do with some constuctive criticism so please feel free to advise or suggest anything that might help me improve. Also if anyone knows an easy non-tech way to apply shadows ( a bit more shadow that is than the option in sbm, using photoshop elements I'd love to know how)
    Thanks if you read this far!

            Count me in!!!

            I would love these little embies - Nancee - I have a little 2 year old boy who loves all of these things, especially tools!!! I can't make a darn thing, either, other than templates - I think you're doing great.

            I don't care HOW you post them, I can get them where they need to be! As long as they're PNGs with a clear background........

            Thanks so much for the offer!

              Nice work! These are all really cute, and I know the people with little boys especially will love them!

                Thanks for the collection. Haven't decided if I will us them for my boys or my 6 yr old GD. She always wants to help Dad too. And Mom and I use all those tools too.

                          Great Work

                          As one with three grandchildren - all boys - I can surely use these.

                          I can use Photoshop to make the backgrounds transparent, but I have not yet made anything like this from scratch, so you are ahead of a lot of us.

                          And by the way, I don't see anything "messy" about your posts.
