Texting in the Round

Even old folks like me from time to time can learn new tricks. I have always used the floating text when applying with a vector shape.

Daily ministrations

Color my world

The Bug has asked, yet another question, which I find difficult to answer. But one that should at least be addressed… background colors on pictures.
