Mercy Vaughn at Not At All Stupid tagged me (thank you, Mercy!) and here are the rules for this Traveling Smoothie Tag:
1. Put an uncolored copy of the smoothie into the post (for video bloggers, print it out or insert it into your video).
2. Color in another copy of the smoothie. Be creative and color the smoothie, straw, and background, if you wish.
3. Insert your colored smoothie in your post/ video/ webpage. If you wish, you may include the location of the smoothie. Be as general or specific as you wish.
4. Name five blogging/ video blogging/ DeviantArt friends who will then have to fill out the smoothie, too. Also remember to link to them, because linking to people makes sad people happy.
This has to be one of the more interesting tags I've done. :)
But I'm going to have to break the rules a bit. While Mercy printed hers out (view her awesome smoothie and description HERE) the printer's out of ink, the scanner doesn't work with the computer that's connected to the Internet, and I don't vlog. Hence, I decided to go digital.
Ta-da! My Sumopaint-enhanced smoothie:
The smoothie for those days when life needs a bit more bright blue drink in a glass decorated with purple and silver flowers, and a slight drop-shadow.
About the drop-shadow: I spent way too much time fooling around with Sumopaint's layers and effects and whatnot. It is one of the best image editors I've found (though Flame Painter is still unrivaled when it comes to playing around with color), with hundreds of options. Have I mentioned it's free, too?
Now, for the people I tag (not to say they're sad people, but because I think it will be fun to see what they'll come up with):
Memzie at The Last Memzie
Emily Rose at Mist of the Blossom Rain
(And I'm cheating here and listing only three. If you want to make up the fourth and fifth, go ahead . . .)
What kind of smoothie/drink are you in the mood for right now?
Also, I'm a featured blogger over at Ali Cross's blog! Hope you'll stop by.
