|The cutting mat has 1cm squares to give you an idea of scale|
My Tim Holtz scissors were brilliant for this as they allowed me to cut through 5 layers of felt in one go.
De-animating blinking images
Here's the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog blinking blinkie ... try pressing ESC and see what happens! If you want to restart the blinking (glutton for punishment eh!), just refresh the screen. Timing of the ESC key allows you to freeze the animation at any point in the sequence.
If you want to save a copy of just the first image (actually called a frame) of the animation - simply save the blinkie to your computer (it will have a name ending in .gif), open it with some sort of photo editing program (e.g. MS Picture Manager) then save it as a jpg file (e.g. via Export in MS Picture Manager). Simples!
The problem comes if you want to extract one of the later frames from the animation ... then you need to involve a gif editing program! This is a bit beyond me ... but I did find an on-line gif-splitter which will separate the frames of an uploaded animated gif file. You can then save an individual frame back to your computer or download a zipped file containing all the individual images. (Quite) simples!!
