Thanks aquabunny for replying to the question. I just got on the computer. You answered way better than I could have. It's like if someone asked me what chocolate was I'm not trying to make the questioner feel bad for asking the question...it's just one that is hard to answer.
I have lots of clip art saved in files, but for quick and easy (and with a good virus scanner working) I just google what I want, like "free clipart turkey with hat" and it's amazing what all shows up. Sometimes it's X-rated, but usually there are a bunch of good choices. And even though I specify "free", there are usually many that need to go through a paid link, but I can always find stuff to use that is free. Click on the clip art to see the sizing choices, then save it to a file. It's good to run another virus scan over it just to make sure. I've never had a problem, but just saying...
Then you can treat it like any other graphic. Re-size it, adjust colors in a graphics program, edit it...maybe stick a feather in his hat, then print it out and fussy cut it, or if you have a Cameo, use print-and-cut.
I did one of my son-in-law on his trip to Hawaii where he was almost strip searched. I used his photo, sitting in the airport, then attached bombs, knives, Uzzis, grenades, etc. hanging all over his body with a caption something about "what made them suspicious?". I got all of my weapons from googling...then kept expecting the FBI to come knocking on my door, wondering why I was doing searches for all those things ~Judy
