    Hi Everyone! Here’s my take on Carole’s Friendship page. I turned it into A Family Affair for some Bluebird photos I got from a friend. I admire his photo skills. So, this layout includes:

    • Three bluebird photos from the Facebook group: The Hudson Valley in Pictures, photos by Ed Frampton of Poughkeepsie
    • The font for all text is Harrington
    • The flower is from the kit: All That’s Fall
    • The swirl is from the kit: Somewhere in Time
    • The pale background paper is from the kit: ALA-Hygge
    • I made the blue paper by choosing a color from one of the bluebirds
    • I have a folder with many glitter files; this one was the palest and then I used the color changer to replace any dark gray flecks with the blue of the paper.
    • The flying birds are from a kit: It’s Beachy
    • The tree is from Corel’s Winter Clip-art collection
    • The blue and white paper was in my folder with no label. When I went to use it, it turned out to be on a transparent background, like an overlay, so I added a layer underneath and flood-filled it with white.

    Thanks for any feedback!

    (Ed said he tagged the center photo: “Bluebirds discussing the housing shortage”) 🙂

    Edit: I discovered that scaling down to 600 px from 3600 tends to make the small vector text break up so I went back and duplicated the vector layer and chose “convert to raster” on that layer in my .pspimage file. I made a new 600 px version for here. You can now read the text at the bottom.

    Edit2: I found I disliked the golden swirl under the top left flower so I found the matching leaves from the same kit and now feel much better about it.
