    My Day 6 Project

    The photos were taken at Attenborough Nature Reserve near where I live and yes it is named after Sir David Attenborough.

    The bottom photo is 2 photos stitched together to make a panoramic photo

    I had some time, so I worked on a Day 4 project using what free papers and images I could find online. It’s the first time I’ve had any success using layers, so I’m rather pleased even though it’s not as very polished and has a very personal addition. I’m liking this program (PSP Pro 2018) better than I have since I bought it last year. Many thanks for such helpful tutorials.

    Hi Everybody,

    I’m Jackie and I live in Rockville, Md, a suburb of DC.  I love digital scrapbooking but haven’t spent a lot of time on it recently but am trying to make more time for something I enjoy.  Cassel, your videos are the best!!  You have been such a great help.  I finished the basic class here and I was so impressed and it has helped me tremendously.  Thanks so much!!

    This is my first layout from day 3 of camp.  I used supplies I already had from previous downloads off the internet.  I got the felt turkey from Holley VanDenBerg and the pilgrim hat and red paper from Wyld Web Designs.  I’m not sure if my elements are “balanced” at the bottom but I couldn’t find any more felt-looking embellishments and I didn’t have a flower that would match with the felt pieces.

    I am having problems putting a border around my pictures.  I am missing something.  I will work on it tomorrow as it is very late now.  I don’t get the highlighted choice to choose border inside of photo.

    I have not gotten the border around pics either. I cheat and layer another paper underneath slightly larger.

    Hi! I had a bit of trouble with the borders around the photos, too, so I used the paintbrush instead of the fill tool. I’m enjoying learning how to manipulate text.

    To answer your question, Cassel – no, the photo isn’t actually distorted. A really stiff breeze was blowing!

    Wow! I go to bed and I come back to a lot of great work!!! Yet, my previous post disappeared. I apologize if you were waiting for it.

    Ann, it is interesting how you did use the dandelion. Typically, I would have tried to make it a 3D element, but you used it in a great way that probably looks better than what I would have done in 3D. I love that resulting paper.

    Jerri, you kept the layered version of the page, didn’t you? YOu can easily change Friendship to something else to go with how they are more than friends now in that layout! When you mentioned a problem adding the border around the photo, was it for the Day 6 project? Where are you getting stuck? Are you using the Select Selection Border?

    Henry, that is a great hobby to document. It is one of those stories that we live through but often just keep in our hear. You can make other pages with various projects she makes. As for the layout, double-check your shadows. I think a couple of them were either forgotten, or the layer might have been hidden when you saved the jpg version.

    Julie, thank you for your kind words about my teaching style. On your Day 1 project, you can surely add more shadows to get your elements to pop out more (especially that photo).

    Carole, on the Day 5 and Day 6 projects, I think the shadows are either missing or very small. Without going overboard, you can probably make them a bit larger.

    Andrew, your Day 6 project shows well how you used different size shadows for the photos and the flower. It does make a difference, don’t you think? You had fun with the multicolored title. I hope you will find other opportunities to use that technique!

    Jackie, welcome to the bootcamp! Glad you find the tutorial instructive. For your Day 1, I think you need to add more obvious shadows. That might help with that balance too as it will show some dimension to the elements.

    Lynn, you went all out on the shadows for Day 5. Did you also add a bevel of the elements? they all look fairly thick while very consistent so the overall is good!

    Connie, were you trying to use the Select Selection Border command to add the borders around the photos? If you used the Brush tool instead, you can see how there are often multiple ways to achieve the same result in PSP. It is so flexible!

    Barb, did you use an offset of 0 on the shadows? They seem to be even all around the papers and photo. That could be a great way to give some definition if the papers and the background are of a similar color. However, you need to add some shadows on the right and bottom (so with a positive offset) to them give more “thickness” to them. But you can definitely keep the shadow you have, and add more. Nice goat. How many do you have (or do they have)?

    Trish, your post might have gone away with mine. I am not sure why some posts seem to disappear. Glad you posted it again. Unless you posted it in a different thread by error?

    I told you that I was having problems with doing the frames.  This is something I really want to learn to do as I think I would use it doing scraps quite a bit.  I am not sure how I fixed it but I think I had a setting wrong  for the magic wand.  I kept trying to see all of your settings when you showed it to us.  The tolerance was not 0 and the other setting was a check in Use all layers.  If you could tell me the settings all the way across it might help me.

    Here is my final photo and I did get the frames.  Whew was I happy!

    Thanks, Csssel, I will try enlarging the drop shadows–I had them set at 5 for the papers and 15 for the elements.  I’m having a problem though–in working on my next layout, I’m trying to select shapes on other papers and noticed that the marching ants disappear as soon as I click after I made a shape.  I checked and I do not have my marquee turned off.  In fact, nothing is getting selected.  Do you know what could be wrong?  I tried using the smart selection tool for something else and nothing happened.  Thanks, Jackie

    Jackie, although it is not a “bug” per se, it is a particularity: the marching ants always seem to be invisible if you have a vector tool active. Just change tool (like the Move tool) and you will see them reappear. Yet, the selection is still there.

    Jerri, the settings for the Magic Wand would be to set the mode to Replace, the Match mode: Opacity, Tolerance: 0.

    Thanks.  I’ll keep that in mind.  I have faced similar problems in the past, where I know something isn’t working as it should.  Anyway, here is my second layout for day 4.  It’s a bit plain.  I couldn’t think of a title and even if I did, I would have had trouble with it since the background paper is busy, so maybe I would have made a mat for it too but then that would have been too many pieces of paper.

    Here’s my Day 5 project. I would have used different background papers for these pictures if I had some but these aren’t too bad in a pinch. It was quite exciting to discover that pattern page in the colour wheel but it never occurred to me to use the goodies in there for my project until after I was finished lol.

    I did not have photos of my parents and grandparents that went well together so  extracted the colors from their clothes for the papers. My daughter in the photo,  now age 44 had asked me to do something for her  so I let this one do double duty. the butterfly is a preset shape the flowers were from a group  mega kit and just say AC , May 2004

    I did drop shadow all the way around in error.  Forgot to reset my presets.  I will resubmit.  I agree, it could look better.  Barb

    Here’s the next one.  These are my grandgoaties and so much fun to photograph!  Loved learning about Selections>Modify>Selection Boarders.  That is a time saver and sorry to say never saw it before. Barb

    My Day 7 Project

    The girl cutting the cake is Chantel and it is her 7th Birthday.

    The cake is a 2kg cake and as you can see it is in the shape of a 7

    One of the things they like to do is smear the icing on each others faces.  Seems a waste of icing but it’s what they love to do.

    The class is at a school in Mtwapa.  A small town outside of Mombasa Kenya

    Thanks.  I even thought maybe my program had something wrong and ended up using 3 different programs.  Ended up going back to the most recent.  I am going to try again just to make sure I am able to use this tip you gave to us.  There must be a simple little glitch in my brain cells.

    Hi Cassell

    I haven’t been doing from project 4 as I have been away and now are waiting for someone to come and look at my computer as all the color has disappeared, can’t come until tomorrow afternoon . Tried to fix it with Google but nothing happened.  I will still do the projects as I find them interesting always something to learn in each. I haven’t seen my 3 and 4 come through but perhaps I’m looking in the wrong place.

    Jackie, on your Day 4, a title can always be added later, and if you use an alphabet or thick blocky letters, it can stand out just fine on that background. Don’t worry. The inspiration for a title might just come later. Remember to add a date and name for that layout so anyone looking at it would know who it is and when it was taken.

    Ann, I think the background looks fine. You can always make it a solid color that is different if you want. Or, if you keep your page with the layers intact, you might find other papers later and you can change it. That is the beauty of the DIGITAL scrapbooking! You can always change your mind!

    Peggy, that is a lovely layout with those photos of your parents. I heard of a way to take out the reddish colors of older photos. I’ll have to dig a bit and make a tutorial on that. I also have some older photos affected that way. I am sure many of us do.

    Trish, that is a fun font you have. I love the interlacing you did with the ribbons!

    Barb, adding those shadows really make it look more dimensional! Good work. However, I THINK you forgot them (or shared the unshadowed version) for the Day 6 project.

    Carole, I agree that blending those papers really gives a soft look overall. I think your shadows are a bit large as far as offset is concerned, especially on some elements like the confetti. For the Frame, it works well, but the confetti seem to float. Do you see what I mean?

    Andrew, lovely use of the kit and the frame. You might want to add a date to that layout to really pinpoint that event.

    Jerri, did you try the settings given. If it is not working, what does it do instead of what you want?

    Gwen, if you don’t find the emails, there should be one, tomorrow, with a list of all the previous links and passwords just in case one email is lost in cyberspace. Still, have a look in your spam, just in case.
