    gotta brag a little

    I've started on my DGD college graduation pages & wanted a mortar board in the school color as an embellishment but, of course, couldn't find one. So I made one. Found a clip art I liked, put in PSE, opened a photo of DGD in cap & gown & used that to get the "paint" color right, then colored the image. Used some embroidery floss for the tassel & a Sharpie to color the brad to match. Really like the way it came out. I'ts not attached to anything yet so a little off center but still pretty good, I think.

    Well done, Carol. That was a clever way to make your own customised embellishment.
