Butterfly Festival

Southside Community Garden is having their 5th annual Butterfly Festival from 1 to 4 on Saturday Afternoon… directions and more details can be found on their Facebook page. Admission is free, so if you live in or near Youngstown, Ohio, this could be something fun to do with the kids.

YBWorks is honored to make the  souvenir buttons to commemorate the festival. All proceeds from the buttons go to the garden, so your purchase/donation will help raise much needed funds.

Thanks for reading!

Note: if you click on the button photo, it will take you to the event’s Facebook page.

Photo Frames

Playing with Inkscape today, learning how to make one object (quick drawn heart) repeat along the path of another object (a circle) and then see what it looks like with different filter effects applied and saved each as clipart so I can use them as “photo frames” in different software. Here is what a few look like stacked up in OpenOffice Draw, exported as a jpg and then cropped in whatever this Windows 10 photo thing is called.

Some come out a little bit fuzzy around the edges after being dragged through several software programs. Maybe I should apply a “clean edge” filter before use?

This next photo used one of the “heart frames” created in Inkscape in a program called GIMP to border a photo of a butterfly snapped at the Southside Community Garden’s 2015 Butterfly Festival in Youngstown, Ohio.
