I had some fun with this technique. As a scrapbooker I could see where this is a great technique. Above is an example of the frame style cookie cutter. I thought The sail boat could benefit from an artsy frame. I chose this one because I thought it looked like the photo was painted on sand. Below is an example of the shape style cookie cutter. I was originally going to use a round flower shape but decided to just have fun with it instead. When would I ever use a snail cookie cutter, I don’t know but it was too cute not to try.
You can find the amazingly easy directions on how to use the cookie cutter in the article Get Cooking with the Cookie Cutter by Diana Day in the March / April 2012 issue of Adobe Photoshop Elements Techniques Magazine. She even gives information on finding and downloading custom shapes from the internet. I tried to do this but had no success. I was looking for a seashell to put my beach bird on but couldn’t find one. I know I will need to download some custom shapes when I try the steampunk style again so maybe I will find that seashell then.
