Step 15: Duplicate Image

Let's create a Duplicate of the Easter Bunny. In this case you must select the Text Box and not the Image itself.

Once you've selected the Text Box, click it again to make the Dashed Line a Solid one.

So when you Copy and Paste there will be a Duplicated Text Box that contains an Image.



Step 16: Recolor & Artistic Effects

Select the Duplicated Image, then go to the Picture Tools Format Tab.

In the Adjust Group, select Artistic Effects.

Now we need to select the Text Box that holds the Image. Click on the Drawing Tools Format Tab.

In the Arrange Group, select the Send Backward Icon.

This sends the Text Box with the White Image behind the Text Box with the Black Image.

Move the White Bunny up so that it appears to be about 1/2 Inch higher than the Black Bunny.

To add more White Space behind the ear of the Black Bunny, since we are unable to edit the Points for the Image, as we are able to do in programs like Inkscape and Adobe Illustrator, create another White Duplicate of the Bunny.

Drag it to the Left of the Black Bunny so that you can fill in this area.

It's in no way perfect but it is better than what was there.

Repeat the Steps to insert the Easter Basket beside the Bunny.



Step 18: Create Easter Eggs

While drawing the Oval hold down your Ctrl Key and drag downward or upward to make an elongated shape that looks more like the shape of an Egg.

Create a few Duplicates of this Shape and place them below the Black Bunny.

I've used Dark Horizontal (row 6) for Egg 1.
