Funny Boy Flip Book kit released!

Here's the kit description: It may look rather boring at first glance, but finding an old flip book made of antique photos at a recent flea market visit has been one of my favorite finds ever! The cover was almost non-existent and it seemed to be missing some pictures while duplicating others. My husband and I did our best to put the pictures in order without the missing pictures and without duplications, but it was rather tricky and certainly not perfect. We ended up with these 35 pictures.

Included in this kit are the 35 photos in jpg format, about 2.25" x 3.25" in 300 dpi. You'll also find all 35 pictures on 5 printable collage sheets along with a cover and cover template. And as a little bonus, I've written a brief and easy tutorial on how to create an animation using the pictures in Photoshop Elements 10. The tutorial should work well with most of the last several versions of PSE and possibly other graphics programs though PSE 10 was the only one I tried.

The possibilities are endless: create your own flip book using the collage sheets, the pictures would make great border strips in journaling and scrapbooking, create your own animation adding other images to float across the viewing area, or use the images as a focal point in your own collage and journal work. Great for an ATC series too!

*Please see the kit previews to see what is included as some artwork used to feature this kit may include images from other sources.

Personal use and some commercial use are okay as listed in the Terms of Use. Images may not be shared or resold unless part of a finished artwork and no images may be made available to a 3rd party for use. Please read my TOU found

Here is my first little animation of the flip book. The cool thing is you can either animate it digitally or use the collage sheets to make your own actual flip book!
