Hi all. I am entering finished project # 4 . Used our newbie and her best friend as subject. Played with effects on my text and found some really awesome effects (hope they are not to dark). Used some glitter from pixel arts and some pages that i had downloaded before. Tried out the eraser and had some fun with that. grabbed some free clip art for the small bears. There is so much to do and so many ways to do it. Its getting late so I did finish this off in a bit of a rush so hope it does not look to unfinished. I might re do somethings with it later. Thank you for the guidance into scrap booking.July 24, 2021 at 3:27 am #61044
All good things must end and scrolling through all the pages there are certainly good things here. I enjoy seeing all the creativity and I learn as much from Carole’s comments and replies to posts as from the projects. Here are my last 3, a little bit rushed as I was trying to catch up unfortunately I have been unable to complete them till now.
Day 7 – all mine apart from the flower elements and I am not sure where they originated.July 24, 2021 at 3:35 am #61046
Day 9 – I was having trouble to find papers to suit so it is all photos, the camels take people along the beach, it is a great sunset tourist attraction. I changed the sky in 2 photos but it is a bit too blue! I see I cut off the lead camel’s nose when I applied the boarder. Something I need to be aware of when making an inside selection.July 24, 2021 at 3:48 am #61048
Day 11 and final for this boot camp. Photo and papers are mine, the lamp, tree and moon from my stash, the frame is from alluring amethyst, and the sprinkly stars are from captivating nights. The camels on the beach and the staircase to the moon images are from the internet. The chain links holding the lamp are a corel tube.
Thank you to all who posted such amazing creations and to Cassel for the Bootcamp.July 24, 2021 at 4:28 am #61049Ann SeeberParticipant
Euka: You have posted some fine work. Somehow, I never associated camels with Australia but I will now. I do like the colors in your “Cousins” design. And that Broome sunset is spectacular. Good job!July 24, 2021 at 8:54 am #61050Neala (aka Pixie)Participant
It has been such a great experience being here in the Bootcamp!! I have truly enjoyed seeing everybody’s creations! Thank you so much Cassell for this opportunity to learn new tips and tricks. I learned things that I probably forgot way back, but it is like a new door has opened!!
Great job to everybody!

This is my last project #5 for this bootcamp. I struggled a bit to make it work until – after a night’s sleep – I thought of making hexagonal papers instead of the squares! Sometimes it helps to lay it aside and do something completely different for a while (be it sleeping). The papers are from a kit Summerlove fromPixelscrapper but I changed the colors to my liking. The honeycomb, paintsplash, seedscatter, 2 bigger bees and the clip are also found on Pixelscrapper. The other bees are an overlay from InlyDeals that I got for rating someting that I bought overthere a while ago.
It hasn’t been a waist of time doing the bootcamp again and I have certainly found that I had forgotten some details. Such as making the title using a paper as a pattern and that you can close a paper after you did CtrlC before pasting it on the project.
I have enjoyed seeing all the different layouts that have been made and hope I see many of you again in the camps.July 24, 2021 at 10:13 am #61053Cristina MochettiParticipant
I’m having trouble receiving your emails. My last project was Scrap Bootcamp – Day 7 – Project #3.
I already checked the spam folder and nothing.
Could you send me again?
Thanks.July 24, 2021 at 10:18 am #61054
Corrie, that is beautiful. What a great idea to do hexagonal paper pieces. when you say you changed the colors to your liking, how did you do that. I didnt think you could change colors other than using the opacity. this goes back to me needing to just play with the settings and see what happens I think. I often find the color isnt quite what I want but I just go with it. One of the reason I want to learn to make my own papers (hoping the Diamond membership will help with that).July 24, 2021 at 10:27 am #61055CasselKeymaster
Cristina, as I was checking something, I have just noticed that you were “stuck” in the emails series and they were not sent. I think I fixed it. You should get it shortly.July 24, 2021 at 3:33 pm #61069Corrie KinkelParticipant
Susan, thank you. There is a simple manner to change a color by using the colorchanger which is hidden under the flood fill tool. With your dropper you can pick a color from your photo of from whatever you like on your project and then apply it. It is not always giving a good result, depending on the original color of that paper or element but it keeps the texture if there is any. There are more ways to do this, but this is simple and quick. Of course you can then adjust further with the opacity if needed.July 24, 2021 at 3:51 pm #61071Joke AbbenhuisParticipant
My first time to Bootcamp, I have psp 2021 but never used psp before, so a real starter.
My first scrapbook project, day 3 of the bootcamp, is of one of my 6 pugs. Chopin is our lovely male and father of 2 of our girls.July 25, 2021 at 10:09 am #61092CasselKeymaster
Wendy, using the pinked edge on the photo is another way to be creative! I think that if you went fast, you might have skipped the shadowing on the project (except for the little elephant, which has a huge shadow). I am sure that will be your favorite subject for a while, and we will enjoy looking at your projects too!
Euka, those cousins look like they are having fun! On your flowers, you can allow yourself a more blur on the shadow. See how it looks. On the Camel project, it is fun to use the pinked edges on the photo. When the edge is in a contrasting color from the background, the effect is even more stunning. On the Broome Sunset, I don’t know if it is just me but it seems odd to have that fantastic sunset photo tilted: my brain is looking for a horizontal horizon!
Corrie, that is definitely a way to go from an idea and tweak it to get something else. Those hexagons are perfect for that project. And yes, when you copy something, it is held in the clipboard so even if the image is closed, it is still available to paste afterward.
Joke, that is a really good start. Now, to add dimension to an otherwise flat montage, look at adding drop shadows to all your paper elements. And when it comes to the frame itself, allow yourself a wider shadow (like 30 pixels offset, and a blur of 30). You will see how those elements will pop up.
For anyone who has not yet filled out the survey, take a moment to do so!July 25, 2021 at 11:49 am #61096
Thank you Corrie, that gives me more options. I did the Basic Scrapbook Course too (I highly recommend this to everyone) and I’m reading through the downloaded PDF’s and realizing how much I’ve forgotten from that course too, about the opacity. It definitely needs a paper behind it. Using white or black at 1/2 opacity can give me tints and shades and using 50% grey (or 25% white and black) I can get tones. Well that’s the theory anyway, I am looking forward to testing this out (from what I’ve learned with CMY used for print output).July 25, 2021 at 1:37 pm #61097NonieParticipant
Thanks I will Cassel

Thanks Carole – much better on the eye when it is a level horizon! It is the things that you see like that which make a huge difference to the final page.
Ann S.- Australia has the largest (if not it is close to) population of wild camels in the world! Bit of trivia 🙂July 26, 2021 at 1:59 pm #61127Cristina MochettiParticipant
I used the blue color with crumpled texture as a backgrand.July 28, 2021 at 9:54 am #61179
Congratulations Corrie, Cyndi and Euka on your prizes. Thank you Cassel for offering these wonderful prizes. It’s not often something you get in online learning classes. Learning PSP is a prize in itself, the rest is icing on the cake. See you all next bootcamp.August 4, 2021 at 6:12 am #61363
