Just a fun tip, this also works for comics! I’ve done it before and it was fun having Garfield and Archie on my fingers! ;]
done this and it is so fun! you can use the pictures, too – I only tried the black&white ones, I wouldn’t think colors would work.
I retract what I said about colors! Angela, that is a good idea, I’m going to try the comics next time.
I just want to take a moment to thank you for sharing this with your readers. I was very happy at how it turned out, and thank you for featuring it.
