But you will also find buttons for skiing, baseball, softball, soccer, fishing, boating, sailing, canoers, hikers, crew, lacrosse, jai alai, field hockey, rugby and Portable Graffiti.

Learning to use Photoshop

I am learning to use Photoshop to create buttons without actually making the buttons, until after they have sold.

Much trial and error. I know I could watch the instructional videos, but I find them so boring. They put me to sleep just like television does, well just like TV would if I had a TV.

So instead, I try this, click that, experiment, until something that somewhat resembles what I wanted it to look like appears on the screen. When I just can't get it, and my mind is totally blown, I email Donna and ask her my how-to question.

These altered My Little Pony photo buttons were a joint project. My daughter's friend painted and altered the ponies, My daughter photographed them, and I worked them in Photoshop.

Her friend has many more altered My Little Ponies. Punk, Goth, Magickal, Emo...I bet she even has a Vegan Pony. So there will be more pony buttons to come.

You can buy this set of Upcycled, Recycled, My Little Pony Altered Art Buttons at Portable Graffiti on Etsy.

Portable Graffiti Buttons in 2 Treasuries today.

My Get Smart button was featured in a Treasury by Frillz who makes some very pretty jewelry like this one that would be perfect for Valentines Day.

The second treasury was complied by Bluecuddly, who makes some really cute children's clothes like this upcycled Lands End shirt for just $22.00.

She used my Gilligan button in her treasury.
