I have known for years now that Skyler LOVES Jack Skellington from Nightmare Before Christmas. This Christmas, James got her a poster for her room of Jack, and it has me thinking that its time to re-decorate her room. Why not decorate it with a Nightmare Before Christmas Theme.
Making My Own Printables
I have Photoshop for a reason. I use to love making scrapbook digital elements, so I have a little knowledge of making things for these printables. I started off searching for silhouettes of Jack and also of Jack and Sally together. If I wasn’t able to find a silhouette, I found images that had a white or solid color background.
Using the Magic Wand Tool, I selected the solid backgrounds and inverted my selection. I added a new layer and then using the flood fill I filled in the new selection. This gave me a blank canvas. Under this layer I always flood fill it with white, or what ever color I want the background to be, but for today’s, I used white.
I had a few stock images of watercolors that I knew Skyler would love, so I added those to a new layer above my new silhouette. Right Clicking on this layer, I selected create Clipping Mask. This applies this layer only to the black silhouette.
The only other thing I did was add a few words to a couple of them
Nightmare Before Christmas Inspired Bedroom
I created a wishlist on amazon for the things that I am either going to start buying or,
since I am so lucky to have such a handy man in our lives, have James make. The dresser, nightstand, and artist table are things that he can make for us. The artist table would be even better because it would be more solid, and I can have a light box in the top for her.
As you know I have the printable above that you can just click on and save if you wish.
The Paint color is Sapphire Glow by Valspar and is available at Lowes.
