Wonderful Wednesdays: Lovely Lettering and Paper Play for the May Kit

 If you are new to my blog and would like to know how Wonderful Wednesdays got started, please click HERE.

~WARNING: Picture Heavy~

I'd say it is time for a Wonderful Wednesday, wouldn't you?  Since in May many of us on this side of the world start to see new growth and the first sign of flowers beginning to bloom, I thought it wise to make the focus for this month's kit all about spring blooms.  Of course I'm playing serious catch up here so let's start off with Lovely Lettering for May...
Now I had truly intended on making a few different options with different fonts but when I found this particular font I thought to myself, "Self, wouldn't this be amazing if I coloured it all up?"  Well, self is crazy because it took me over three hours to do it.  Hence the reason you are only getting one.  The original image was 1500 px wide but I thought that was way too big so I'm offering it here at 600 px wide.  You can always make it smaller without distorting it.  I REALLY hope someone out there likes it.

Next, it is time for some paper play...

I coloured up this floral template in Photoshop Essentials 5 then imported it into Inkscape and played around with a few different filters making each print a unique creation.  Then went back into PE5 and played around with a few different filters there to create a couple more interesting versions giving the papers some texture.  To see them better, click on them to bring them up in the lightbox.  I'll start off with the original, then show you the rest.

Each paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels and in jpg format.

I'd love to see what you come up with if you use anything I create on any of your projects.  Next week I'll present the remaining two items for this month's kit.

Until next time,

Lisa you are so talented and nifty with Photoshop. These items are wonderful. I especially love the May creation. I sat for hours on end yesrerday just trying to make a jpg's background transparent yesterday. I crwated a watermark for one of my design teams to put on our dt creations, but just could not get it right.
