From THIS to THAT with Adobe Photoshop

I like to play.  When I can play at work, I'm happy.  This morning, I'm taking a bit of time before the grandkids get up to work/play.  I'm working on the Victorian theme for the next fused glass decal printing.  I found this cute little girl standing on a chair from VintageFeedsacks.  It looks like the little girl is reprimanding someone or something.

 I decided to solve the mystery.  I opened the file in Adobe Photoshop and enlarged the canvas to make room for the mystery guest.  I moved the girl and the chair to the right with cut and paste.  I opened my file of Captive Decals 5" X 7" Rodents and Reptiles and copied a mouse that would be cute in the picture.  Normally, I do not think mice are cute.  I then pasted him on the floor next to the chair.

Unfortunately, it looks like the little girl is looking beyond the mouse.  I did not want to put him further away from the chair as the finished decal would have too much blank area.  So, I outlined the girl from the waste up, opened a new Adobe Photoshop file, pasted her upper body in the new file, rotated her 30 degrees clockwise, then copied and pasted her back into the original file.  I had to do a bit of fill in on her lower arm and a gap at her waist, but the results were worth it.

Mystery solved just in the nick of time as Skyler woke up; which means his twin brother and older sister will be waking up soon.  And they will be asking for pancakes.  I've got pancake shapes of a butterfly, rubber duck and Mickey Mouse.  The grandkids love 'em.  Gotta go.  Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
