There are many options for transforming a picture in to a soft outlined finish. I chose photoshop and did these steps: 1. I used Artistic- Colored Pencil and adjusted the strengh to the desired look and feel I was trying to acheive 2. I used a BW filter and earased any gray splotches.
It was super easy, and the kids had a blast (uh, ok, I had just as much fun)!There may be a easier way, so if you know of one, please share!
