Hello there WOYWWers! I managed to get the number right this week LOL!
I’m not showing my desk, but my desktop. I shared a little Scandinavian style box the other day and made mention of the process. A mate commented that she has no idea what I was talking about so I thought, as I was working on the Project Life printables I mentioned, I would capture the screen so I could explain.
First, this is a file of red and white cross-stitch design from a free to use vector site. Doesn’t look like that, does it?
The program I use delineates a selected object with blue squares surrounding it – 4 or 6 depending on the size. That should give you some idea of how many “objects” make up this vector graphic! Each “stitch” is made up of two objects, grouped to create a stitch. See what it looks like with all the objects grouped into a single image?
In order to use it in any meaningful way, I edit and group the individual tiny objects into motifs, then resize them. Like so:
It’s a little time-consuming and repetitive but if you pop back tomorrow I should have a sheet of 5 Project Life journaling and/or filler cards ready for download. They might work for a card topper too, but you’ll have see what you think.
One last bit on the word verification issue:
Right, so yesterday I finished up my return visits and a few new visits, and I didn’t have word verification pop up even once. So one of two things happened – EITHER Blogger backed off the aggressive word verification trigger of just a few comments OR it was maybe me typing a wrong number (no matter how careful I was trying to be, it could have happened) that triggered it and this time (10 blogs) I made no mistakes. I may never know..
ARRGGHH! First blog after Julia’s and it kicked me to Word Verification. I kid you not, 10 tries and it finally posted so now I have to wait 24 hours to comment again with number verification only.
HA HA! Going back to an old, unsupported browser brought back number verification! YAY!
And kicked back after a handful of blogs but check this out – on the blog that thwarted me? Check out the proof! As you can see it ISN’T ME – I typed in the right numbers and yet….
Clear as a bell, that s 672, no question. I typed in 672, as you can see. I didn’t trust myself, it kept kicking me to Word Verification when I was SURE I was typing it right. So I just did screen grabs of every verification I did… see what I got when I clicked PUBLISH?
I call that UNFAIR.
Once more, have a great WOYWW day!
I have to giggle cause it wasn’t till I was scheduling the post I realized today is MY BIRTHDAY. DOH!
