Sharrie, I like this. I do this all the time. The cutting out is the tedious part. Do you have any secrets to make this job easier? I keep a folder of objects I have separated from their backgrounds. #418115

No secrets, just a lot of hard work, and spending a lot of time at it. I use a wacom tablet and pen, to do the outlines, that makes it a bit easier.
Thanks for your comments. #2592632

Sharrie, your PS skills are amazing and what I love is that you created your image first in your head and then went out and photographed all the parts! Terrific work! #3041446
