View Full Version : HELP...sort of?

04-16-2012, 01:58 AM
Wasn't sure where this should go. I am trying to get some help with someone either telling me how to or creating on their own a sort of animated coil spring.

I just want something that when you look at, it says "BOING!" in your mind. Something simple, a coil spring bouncing off to the upper right. It can be solid black or black outline with a grey interior.

Bascially, something like this:


(sorry so small, best I could find!)

I want to make a shirt via CafePress for a family member that says "HERE I GO!" in the middle, then has a singular coil spring in motion ( with motion lines??) on the left facing side arcing up and to the upper right.

This is a really crude rendition, but this is what I have in mind:


Can someone help me figure out how to make this OR make one for me? I know we have so many talented designers on here that might steer me in the right direction.

I'm wanting to make this happen by Mother's Day if at all possible. HELP! :)

i have a basic steel spring (its just straight up and down though). but i think it got in on scrappincop's blog a WHILE ago! let me look through her blog and see if she still has it up.

can i post this link here?
you can probably tweak it in PS, like make it bendy looking or to the way you want it. but this might be a good start. sorry, i didn't check to see if the link was still active, but its worth a shot. good luck!

If so, I can send you the .png file.

Will this work?

omg, YES. i tried playing with the scrapping cop spring, but i'm just not good at it, lol. that spring is pretty much EXACTLY what i'm looking for!

i want to make the shirt as a gag gift and a scrap page with the same spring as a funny reminder of a ridiculous happening.

my email is tinaroxursox@yahoo.com

thanks to both of you for so quickly coming to my aid and making this ridiculous shirt a reality! ^^</sup>
