The Pink Owl

  A friend of mine is having a "Who's Turning One" party for her granddaughter.  The previous blog explained how to make an owl cake.  I wanted to give her owl clipart, but I didn't really like anything I saw.  

  I started researching prints in every form I could find.  I found about ten I saved to my pictures file.  But, I really didn't know how, as a non-graphic designer, how to use them to build an owl.  I built the above image in PRINTMASTER.  I love this program.  I opened the gingham print in the program.  I hit crop.  It gives me basic shapes I can use to crop.  I chose an oval.  You can see the results in these five owls.


  Since I am a member of, I downloaded the owl below. But, he wasn't cute enough for me.  So I cropped off his ears, wings, and toes.   I had to import him into Photoshop in order to create layers, so that I could change things later.    Printmaster 
doesn't give you the cool magic wand to erase parts of the individual cropped wings.
