Molly’s First Quotoshop!

Molly and I have been doing a lot of art stuff together lately.  Of course the boys don’t seem to deem anything “art” unless it is the drawing or painting of a real person or something in nature (ie. an animal or some majestic mountain scene).  We’ve landed more on different types of art such as word art and zentangles.  Most often we’ll spend 10-15 hours on some crazy zentangle and then put it on top of the pile with all the other ones.  We debated putting them all up on the wall in the back play room . . . yes, where no one else could see them 🙂  Instead, we’ve been looking for a way to make something that had a little more lasting value than the top of the pile offers it until another drawing is finished.  So, a couple of days ago I came across an encouraging quote and thought that maybe Molly would be up for designing the quote in some form of word art.  I could then use photoshop to add a background or author.

So quotoshop was birthed – at least our form of it.  There has already been birthed a “Quoto” who has some Oriental shop and of course you can get on some shop that will offer you quotes on car insurance . . . but I don’t think the concept of using photoshop to doctor up your quotes (and then calling it quotoshop) has come to life yet . . . I’m actually almost certain I’m probably wrong, but I couldn’t find any evidence to the contrary.  You may ask if it matters . . . it doesn’t.

So with out further adieu . . . Maybe one of many or maybe the only one . . . Here’s Molly’s first Quotoshop!

  1. Well done. Very well done. Thoughtful and visually interesting. I look forward to your next endeavor.

    The advice is good — leaving it with the One Who has the whole world in His hands. This is not necessarily easy to do, to walk away from it, to leave it at the foot of the cross. But we press on ….

    The text appears to be a micro-sermon on Philippians 4:6,7. In the verse that precedes these there appears to be two sentences. The second sentence is “The Lord is at hand.” In the KJV it reads exactly as I have quoted it. The ESV uses different punctuation which makes the statement forward-looking: It reads “The Lord is at hand;” and the sentence continues on into verse 6. This is what keeps me going, knowing that God is near, always. I do not have to be anxious, because God is near.

    Thanks for reminding me.
