Revisit # 1

Christy said,
Have you gotten your hands on the new SBC upgrade? Trust me, you need it!!!
I don't have it yet, but can't wait. You can type text on a path! And round

I didn't have any idea that something is coming out. Oh, please let it be so. I can't find anything about it. But I am so glad to have someone who knows. Woohoo! something to look forward to. Please let me know the minute it comes out. I will be one of the first to get it I promise.

Now, on to today's business. I am revisiting former posts. I am not making many big changes to the original post, but in case newer people here are like me( grin) I don't often go back and explore older posts of other bloggers even if it would be in my best interest. I know not a good cyber-friend. Such is life. If any specific topics should be brought back up or revamped, I am ready. Still working with my new Memory Manager software and I don't feel proficient enough yet to teach anyone.

Revist #1
Convoluted way of predicting outcome of MASKS

Good morning folks. My synapses may be firing in line this morning and my calendar is clear for an hour or two. This means I get to play with you for a bit. You may feel like the mouse that got played with by the cat when I finish with you. Enjoy the ride!

*First the giftie is a background that can be used to figure out where the mask will cut your picture. Now we have to use the mask to cut the background paper, so we drag the mask onto the page and fill it with the background paper by using the paper icon on your tools tab.

I got this lovely mask from Kupivet here.

Now loading the paper as our background gives us the chance to line up the mask with the lines on our paper that may need to be adjusted a bit here and there.

Lock the mask. (I learned this from one of our group here.)

Now the picture will need to be lined up under the mask. This means turning the paper view off so that it is invisible. Then lining the picture up under the mask and making it fit the space that will be cut later.

cute pic huh?

Once the picture is where you want it you will need to save page as to create the paper you will use to fill the mask. Load the paper you created from the picture, drag the mask onto your workspace fill with the paper. Saving the picture the way we did places it in the position needed to fill the exact space the mask will cut from.

Told you it was convoluted. Hope it works. Please, Please, if someone knows a better way, I am all ears. Have fun! Now on to my vacation...
*I created a 4x6 page for this particular project thinking that the smaller workspace will make it easier to use the picture size. A larger workspace could be needed with other masks.
