Teacher Gift

Originally uploaded by Green Kitchen.
Worked from 11pm to 1am late last night on this spread from an end-of-year memory book for my son's pre-school teacher. I've used this technique for several gifts and have enjoyed it every time. I choose photos, size them in Photoshop, print and cut them out, and draw/paint a background for them. It's really fun and relatively quick. It makes for an inexpensive gift, which can be quite nice when you have lots of parties to go to. Remember the first one that I did? I also did one of a brother and sister in a boat, sailing the skies as pirates. I heavily "borrowed" the ship design from a fellow blogger, which is why I've never shown it here. My excuse was lack of time. I needed a cool boat and I needed it THEN. I figure it's ok if I'm not selling it, right? Sheepish crafty secrets revealed.

That is a great gift. I'm sure the teacher would LOVE it and I bet you will see it pinned on the wall in the classroom. Good job!
I've done a 'from group' birthday card for a friend at work on the same concept - I used pictures of many cute babies I found on the internet and added photographs of all our heads. Everyone loved it :)

That is a wonderful idea, something I would like to try sometime. Sadly not this close of school year.

i think we all "borrow" designs for others. its looking at others' work that makes us strive to be better.

Remember the greatest compliment is copying! ;) And, it's not like you are selling it or using if for a weird personal are not personal gain...making millions is though! ;)

And, in scrapbooking we call it 'scraplifting'...never stealing or even copying! ;)
