After this we looked at how to make words have a photo texture background. We searched for an image such as grass or sky or balloons or sweets. In Paint.net we added a second layer and entered some text. We used the magic wand (using the ‘global’ setting) to select all of the text. We then hid the text layer and cut out the mask using Ctrl X. Next create a new canvas and paste in your text.
Caitlin was a star and did another image with a shape rather than text which she pasted onto another photo (to give the effect of clouds in the sky being in a particular shape)
