This really appeals to me in an "ooooh, I really like your thought process with those items" kinda way more than a "that's the sort of thing I'd like one of" way.  I hope you don't mind me liking your brains more than your crafts!?!  Embarrassed

It's still the most well thought out and well spent item that makes an individual statement and thinks outside the junction-box, so to speak.  Roll Eyes

Oh, by the way, I'm way behind on current software capabilities (think Corel Draw 3 era Shocked) and I was wondering if you could explain to me how you get your name watermarked on your photos for me please?  It's probably really simple and obvious, but it's such a good idea!  Embarrassed

i did it in photoshop, i assume you can do it in many programs, it's just a matter of making a text layer and then changing the opacity of said layer...i never did it before, but i posted once in another forum (not craftster) and someone stole a bunch of my images claiming them as their own, and someone else  posted some of my crafts to a blog stating they made them.  I don't mind people using my pictures, but give credit where it is do...so ya, i know it's probably not necessary on craftster, but i've gotten in the habit.

Oh, thank you very much esspressopunk!  Grin  I suspect I'll need to get something other than my old versions of Word or Publisher to do this.  I've just tried every trick I can think of and nada.  Trust me to pick the one thing I *can't* do!  Angry 

Good luck with the challenge!

I know you can get a similar result in Publisher (put a text box directly over your photo, right-click the text box & set it to "no fill color," and type the text in a light color), but I'm not sure you can save it as a jpg after that.  So this may not help, after all...

Sorry for helping turn the clock thread into a photo tech support thread.  So, in the spirit of the thread:  nice work, espressopunk!  I half-expected to see a wind-up key in the back so the clock could walk around!  Wink

Hmmm... am I seeing inside your head?   Cheesy  Seriously, though, that must have made a great music box.  Was it a clock, too?

yes, also a clock, it was very involved, used a larger junction box and has metal wings and has a lot more charcter, i would post a picture, but i think the person who it is a gift for might be a craftster lurker and would know it was for them due to certain personal touches, so i will first ask the permission of the person who commisioned it and then maybe put pictures in a different thread sometime soon

Yes, please please post it if you get permission to! I truly love this clock. I hope you don't mind the comparison to the work of William Joyce (Robots, Rolie Polie Olie). There's so much life and character.

And you're a Chicago boy. What's not to love?! I moved away nearly 5 years ago, but I'm Chicago born and raised!
