This is an in between post. Holly and I have been tossing around the same daisy for years. It has a tiny bug in the yellow center. The petals are crumpled and missing in places. I hereby christen this our new daisy. May it have a long and useful life. Did you know to make gingham you take solid vertical stripes, make a png file then ghost the png file? Duplicate the ghosted layer and turn it 90 degrees. Voila a gingham, complete with dark squares at the intersections. Even better you only need to do it once if you remove color and then enhance the color to a shad you enjoy. Or you may just use mine and not worry about any of that Greek if you aren't a photoshop user.
Below is my handy dandy little black strip. Looks boring, doesn't it? Well, if you'd like to fake pictures being on a film strip it sure comes in handy. Because it is a transparent background PNG you can drop a shadow from it, pulling dimention into your page. It also lets the background papers peek through.
