Well I survived my first night of 3rd shift, but found it isn't as easy to sleep during the day as I thought it would be. I've had 3 hours so far and hope to get a nap before going back in tonight. So to spend my insomnia filled day I created a little action for Photoshop and PSE that looks like a double-sided ribbon flower. You choose the color, pattern, or back ground paper for each portion of the ribbon and choose the color for the brad in the middle. When the action is finished, the brad is on a separate layer so you can discard it if you would rather use a button or other embellishment for the center of your flower. Or you can layer two or more flowers for a more three dimensional effect. I'm so sorry for my non-PS/PSE users, the next freebie will include something you can use!
