Don't forget to think about the baby birth announcements, invitations, thank your notes or stationery. Baby clip art can be the perfect accent to any of these needs. All over the internet When scanning a drawing into your computer it will always load as a bitmap image, (a bit like a photograph in a newspaper). This can be sent directly to a stamp manufacturer as long as it is a black and white scan and the line thicknesses do not fall below the minimum. If the lines are too thin you can convert the bitmap image into vector data by applying a trace to the image. Programs that have tracing ability place a vector line around the lines or can be set to follow the lines, these lines can then have a thickness applied to make them suitable for rubber stamp making.
You may currently be paying $12.00 for an unmounted, mass produced stamp in the shops, buying the same size stamp direct from a rubber stamp manufacturer will be about $9.00 and be custom made for you! You can also find different photographs and pictures online to add to your scrapbook theme. This is an important lesson for high schools, middle schools and elementary schools. All have to raise money, and it's far easier to do with apparel that features a school mascot that the student body embraces. Your mascot is the single most important marketing asset your school has, and if handled properly, can greatly enhance your school's reputation and bottom line. I take the clipart and then print it out in various sizes for how I want to use it. I can drop it off at the cake decorator's so that she can make me a cake with that pattern. Then, I email a copy to my husband's work so that he can print out a few copies in a larger format. These become cut outs that I place on the walls... almost like a logo.
The type of clipart that I use is important for all of the different effects that I'm creating. It needs to be a vector drawing for sure, as non-vector drawings are bitmaps that don't resize nicely... they'll just get all bumpy and not look good. Also, I'm drawn to simply line art because if it's too complex sometimes it doesn't look as good in the different sizes. It's also good if it's a single color, usually black, because then I can change it to whatever I want quite easily just using simple graphics software. Just remember, simple is better, is cleaner, and usually creates a more sophisicated look. Kid's art is great for use for kid's rooms, grandparent scrapbooks, and kid's scrapbooks. These pictures can be used as backgrounds, as focus items, or as embellishments. Science is perhaps the most difficult subject to teach in the home school. Parents may feel they lack the resources to provide an effective science curriculum at home. Many science, including biological and botanical sciences, can be effectively taught with clipart images of animals. Search libraries and clipart galleries for illustrations of plants, trees, and animals. You may look for both full-color and black and white images. Avid scrapbookers will tell you how much they love to add vintage graphics and images to their scrapbook pages. You can easily download free vintages clipart images depicting different people, times and places in history. Vintage advertising art or greeting cards are a popular downloadable scrapbook item, along with public domain book art.
