Wise Owl Graphic Set
Talk Cut It Simple Shapes
Ld Hipster Child
Begin by opening your owl in photoshop as well as the smarty pants phrase. I used a talk bubble from the Talk Cut It Simple Shapes to place behind my smarty pants phrase. And used LD Hipster Child for "Good Luck" and "(like you'll need it!)." Even if you don't have a digital cutter, you can used any of the Cut It products as a graphic. They come in several formats, just open up the pdf version in photoshop, or if you have illustrator, open up the ai version and paste it into photoshop. Use the type tool to write the additional type and center it on your talk bubble.
To create the back of the owl copy the owl and paste another version next to it. Now if you go to the menu bar at the top of photoshop click on edit>transform>flip horizontally. This will make a mirror of your originally image so that you can have a nice back side.
Begin by creating a rectangle marquee around the tail and body. Use the wand and click on alt while you click on the area outside the body so that the marquee will select around the body. Create another layer on the layers palette, by hitting shift + control + N. I named this layer wings.
