    Annie, those are such colorful birds! You have a great way to showcase them.

    Joe, that is an interesting different take on that same layout. I see that anchor seems differently displayed in this one. Very good. Were all those animals on the golf course at the same time or did you do a composition for it? I see that you managed to resize the images perfectly without distortion to make them even.

    Ann, fun fact: a colleague of mine didn’t know that those two “flowers” were, in fact, the same one at different times. She really thought they were different flowers, until I showed her a time-lapse YouTube video of a dandelion going from the yellow form to the white one. Interesting how that plant is used in cooking, and wine-making, yet, many people consider it just weeds.

    Frans, welcome to the Bootcamp. I am glad to see some new faces this time around! I like how you used an overlay to cover part of the photo, yet, we can still see it underneath. Have you considered adding shadows? It would make your title and your small photo stand out from the flat background. And by the way, did you have a chance to do the sandwich exercise?

    Torsten, welcome to the Bootcamp! Glad to see you post. Don’t worry about double posts. That happens, once in a while. In order to help me keep track of which project corresponds to which lesson, would it be possible to keep the layout somewhat similar to the example. Of course, you can add elements, but each lesson is an opportunity to practice some specific commands. In the first lesson, it is about cutting “papers”, and shadowing. I would also LOVE to see how you would interpret the sandwich exercise. Did you get it in the email?

    Truly beautiful Ann and very informative. The humble dandelion is one of my favourite flowers. They are not a weed as a lot would think but are a valuable environmental resource. I have a dear friend who hails from Greece and she will often have a bowl of steamed dandelion leaves doused with fresh lemon juice and olive oil as a side dish to a meal. It is delicious, so dandelions are precious in my garden. Love your page Ann. 🙂

    Hello Campus Friends.  This is for the Friendship project.  I have used photos of the Australian pink and grey galahs … and, they are just that … galahs.  Pretty well stuck with the lesson and I used the kit Cassel gave us the link to.  I did add the doodles under the flower top left and for the butterfly I used Cassel’s script Sprayed.  Font used was Fancy12 Becker.  Thanks for takin a peek my friends.  ;D

    Cassel – Same course, different days.  I have many photos of wildlife on the courses here, but wanted to stick with one course for this project.

    Oh my goodness, how PINK are they!   That is such a beautiful layout.  I must admit all the layouts used in the boot camp are extremely versatile. Even though you used a lot of colour, the eye still homes in on those gorgeous birds.

    One more for the Friendship project.  I couldn’t resist doing something with these little guys … talk about having a bad hair day!  They are swallows from the Indian sub-continent.  The blurb is on there for you to read.  The little guy in the middle could be saying “OMG! It’s the Taliban … I think they have seen me.” LOL!  My own papers except for the glitter which Cassel kindly supplied as a freebie, and all elements courtesy of Cassel’s scripts … just love em.  Font is Gimme Danger!  Thanks for takin a peek my friends.  😀

    So many new creative and fun layouts. Great work, everyone!

    I couldn’t do anything for a couple of days, so only today I managed to finish projects #2 and 3… Now onto project #4.

    No matter how many times I participated, it is always fun to create layouts for this challenge.

    Project 4.  I enjoyed this project and learned a coulpe PSP tricks.  I especially like the erase tool trick, which I utilised with more than just diamond cuts.

    Flora pics are some of the plants around the house.  The churches are some that I photographed on some of my journeys.  All of the sun pictures are taken from various spots around the area that I live.

    Wow, Joe.  Love your 3 layouts, but my favorite is Nature’s Colors, as I love the sky and beautiful sunsets and sunrises, but also clear blue skies and also fluffy clouds.  Storm clouds are awesome, though.

    Cindy, love your duck/chicken. Neat story to go with the layout.

    Cristina, you’re making me hungry. Love the colors.

    Annie, always like your colorful Australian birds.  Bad Hair Day really intrigues me with, not only the bird, but the colors you used in your layout.

    Annie, such beautiful birds. You are really showcasing them well.

    Joe, it is interesting to know that so many creatures can end up on that course, at the same time. It should be renamed a petting course (kind of!). Be careful with that edge trick: it can get addictive very quickly. I am glad you learned that trick and you can use it in different ways. It can turn into very creative results.

    Cindy, welcome back. You are doing so much better with the shadows in this Chicken layout!

    Cristina, you are making me hungry with those pictures (even though I am a very picky eater!) That pasta heart is quite interesting!

         Hello Wonderful People,

    Well the duck is doing good, it really does speak chicken.    Momma dirt baths, baby duck dirt baths.   Momma calls  it

    to eat a worm she found, baby runs to mama  and eats it.   Cutest thing, ya’all.

    Thank you Pixel for the kit, Thank You Cassel, thank you all here.     Its so fun you Artists are so nice,  Its pouring rain

    out and I keep falling asleep, I love the sound of the rain.   Had to remove to many tubes, they are just so fun to stamp

    on!                                                                         Hugs All

    thank you All  Espically our Cassel.     P.s.  Love the Love Pages with your Grandson so cool!

    Cindy:  That duckling is so cute. Your colors work well with the blue sky and puffy cloud background. Nicely done, my friend.

    Joe: Of the 3, I like the Florida Flora. All 3 are very well done and pleasing but that one is my favorite.

    Christina: Your food designs are awesome! Of course they make me head to the kitchen, especially that Berry Pavlova.

    First, thank you so much, Annie, Mary, Carole, and Ann, for your comments. They are much appreciated. <3… I make this dessert once a year, usually in July or August, when the berries are fresher and taste better… I had the first time at my sister-in-law’s, and since then, it became a tradition at home. : )

    I was in a kind of a rush yesterday, so I didn’t give the proper credits to the designers, who so generously offer the freebies.

    Project#2: Papers from PS2020Sep– A Beautiful Mess-Artsy Papers”  —   Alpha from Cassel-Alpha Maker Sample (Alpha-Maker script)  —  Border-Stitches4 from KAagard…  Some of the papers are not recognizable because I played with the blend mode.

    Project#3: Papers from Oklahoma Dawn PS2018Nov “I dig it” —  Glitter from Cassel.

    Carole, I created the pasta heart inspired by an illustration I saw online. I downloaded different pasta shapes, created a picture tube, and then arranged the shapes inside a heart outline. Below the illustration.

    Annie: Do those Myna birds talk? Someone had one here that did.

    Bootcamp: Just in time for Cassel’s Busy Bees class my daughter in Mendocino, California, participated in their annual Bee Bold Mendocino festival. She’s in the bottom photo on the far left with her drumming group. She made the mistake of posting all this on Facebook so of course I helped myself to their images. 😉 I created the striped paper from a selection from the small purple Bee Bold Alliance logo on the right. The title fonts are Aviation Cocktail Aged and Broadway.

    I have fun with this adventure.  I’ve used PSP for awhile now, but mainly photo retouching and manipulation.  Last Christmas I used grandkids photos and made into jigsaw puzzles.  I also use for creating seamless textures for online gaming.  The drag and drop coping of layers and the “Shift Erase” are new to me.  Also, I am starting to use the keyboard shortcuts more on these projects than I usually do.

    One thing I don’t quite see, and please don’t misunderstand me,  is that while I know the how, I don’t know the why.  Physical scrapbooking, to me is about the sentiment and the physical sense of someone made this with their hands just for me.  What do you do with the digital scrapbook pages?  DO you create eBooks to pass on, or just store the digital creations and pass them on singularly.

    I’m always looking to expand my breadth and depth of knowledge and have enjoyed working these projects but other than maybe using them in a slide show for graduation or wedding I don’t se myself using a digital scrapbook.

    Again, no disrespect, just curious.
