Here is day 4. Again I used a sky photo, which had a hint of red, from the sunset. After many random clicks, the kaleidoscope delivered another lovely background paper. Text on a path, lifted corner. Gem stones from picture tubes. A plaque created using 3 tutorials from Cassels.

Alicia – Thanks for your kind comments! You are doing such beautiful work with the images from your travels! It makes a person feel like they are there!August 29, 2019 at 3:57 pm #33859shutterpixiParticipant

Shutterpixi, I love how you used the many spots to display a single image. That is very effective! Your sunflower layout is great and I love how you use the wide photo as a background.
Annie, I think it might be worth contacting that photographer and showing how his photos are used. I am sure he would appreciate that.
Alicia, your photos are great and the way you showcase them is fantastic. You really bring us travelling with you!
Sue, your bird photos are always breathtaking. It is great to give you options to showcase so many.August 29, 2019 at 9:32 pm #33890
Hi Scrapbook Campers. Over the past couple of weeks I have been having issues with PSP 2019 Ultimate. Well it finally crashed and no amount of uninstalling/reinstalling would save the day. Interestingly I was having the same issues with PSP X8. I have now uninstalled both of them and I am back to using PSP X7 which I have always loved. In losing 2019 and X8 I lost a ton of picture tubes and for that I shed a few frustrated tears and I have been sulking … as you do! Eventually I decided that sulking was doing me absolutely no good so I shall just have to have fun creating them all again… ;D I lost a lot that I had purchased though so I will have to try and locate the downloads to see if I can rescue them. Dang, but technology can sure be a headache at times.
This is my day 4 result for the double take challenge. I decided to showcase the elements that I have created over the past couple of months. All bar the birds and butterflies (tubes I have had forever) are my own work. Thanks for takin a peek!August 29, 2019 at 11:35 pm #33897
For Day 4, I used some of my photos from “the oldest marine animal park in Florida.” The scattered format was perfect for these pictures!
Carole, thank you for reminding us about the “add border” command, and the texture effects, which I used to create the pink ribbon for my layouts.August 29, 2019 at 11:40 pm #33898
Annie I’m so sorry to hear about your troubles. I, like you, ended up having to uninstall 2018 and X7. They simply wouldn’t work anymore. I didn’t have much installed so I got lucky with that. Even though you lost a lot stuff, you have still managed to present with a glorious garden!! You are definitely living up to your Superfan status.August 29, 2019 at 11:49 pm #33901
I finally started getting the emails starting with Day 03. I played around and created Day 01 and Day 02. They may not exactly follow the examples but I was getting behind and I wanted to catch up to everyone else. I chose a colorful subject for my pages. All the photos are from Unsplash. Their photos are simply wonderful I think. I certainly can’t take photos like that. I hope ya’ll enjoy Mr. Colorful!August 30, 2019 at 1:25 am #33902
Sharon, thank you so much for your concern, much appreciated my friend. I love chooks and roosters so your pages appeal to me immensely. Well done for a feisty subject, 🙂August 30, 2019 at 1:30 am #33903
Alicia I love your Marine Park pages! You have really captured some great photos. It is so amazing how smart the animals are. I know you really enjoyed that vacation!August 30, 2019 at 9:10 am #33935
Day 5 of the double take challenge. I didn’t have to do much to create this page. I used the sky for the background paper at the bottom and added a subtle blinds texture. Perspective for the text. I didn’t have to crop the main photo as I took a panoramic shot of a section of the lake. In excess of 11 million water birds congregate here during the spring and then again in the autumn, en route to and from their breeding grounds. The framed photos are just a few of the species that can be seen there.August 30, 2019 at 3:07 pm #33942
Outstanding work Sue!!! From the panorama to the individual birds your talent really shines through!August 30, 2019 at 6:05 pm #33943August 31, 2019 at 12:24 am #33948
I’m slowly catching up. I managed to make a cohesive image out of several pictures I borrowed from my son. They went on a hiking excursion at a new hiking park that opened a while back. I think they visited it about a year ago if I remember it right. The view looks incredible in the photos. It’s definitely on my bucket list of things to do. I hope you enjoy the little slice of life around here.August 31, 2019 at 12:38 am #33949
Sharon … cute display of the “cock of the walk”, I love it.
Alicia … you have showcased the oldest marine park in Florida beautifully, well done.
Sue … your love of nature shows through in all of your work, wonderfully displayed.August 31, 2019 at 12:53 am #33951
Hi Scrapbook Campers. This is my day 5 of the double take challenge. All photos courtesy of Unsplash from a variety of photographers. I followed closely Cassel’s tutorial for this one. I created the gradient from one of the photos using the script cass-gradient creator and I love how it turned out … a super way to blend a background into the theme of a project. I also love how the title turned out, very neat idea for the character shapes, thanks Cassel and thanks to whomever for takin a peek!August 31, 2019 at 3:50 am #33953
Here’s my day 6. I used the paper crease tutorial, to divide the background. Changed all the letters to red, used the picture tube script to create a neat rope. I stayed with the mask technique to place the photos inside the date and word. Character map was used on the heading, lifted photo tutorial. Instead of creating a grunge effect I created an overlay. Placing the beads took the longest time to do. Rotating, and then erasing either side for the rope to thread through, shadowing.August 31, 2019 at 11:01 am #33960
In this challenge I used 62 different photos. Double pages is deffinately the way to go to show case my photos. Thank you Carole. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed taking part. X

Day 5: I don’t have any panorama shots from the Florida trip, so I found this one from our trip to Fundy National Park in New Brunswick, later the same year.
I created the layout as 3600 x 7200 pixels. I used a pre-made gradient for the bottom layer, and I learned how to add borders using the selection – modify – select selection borders technique.
After saving the image as a jpg, I used the “custom selection” to create the left and right side layouts. All simple things, but the first time I have tried them.August 31, 2019 at 5:56 pm #33971
Sharon, Annie, thank you for your kind words.August 31, 2019 at 9:01 pm #33976August 31, 2019 at 9:06 pm #33979August 31, 2019 at 9:23 pm #33984
This is my Day 3. This is a Double Page that I’d done a while ago.
This is a Beach in Queensland Aust. that has different coloured sands. I’ve included the Aboriginal Legend for Rainbow Beach.
Thank you for giving me the chance to show you some of my work.
CheersSeptember 1, 2019 at 1:20 am #33987
Sue, lovely work on the migratory birds. I love your work my friend, it shows your heart. <3
Alicia, you are doing so well for a rookie my friend. You visit beautiful places and showcase them to perfection, well done Hon. 😀
Cheryle, beautiful photos which you have displayed beautifully, well done my friend. ;DSeptember 1, 2019 at 1:25 am #33989
Day 6 Challenge. Photos again from Unsplash (I would be kinda lost without them) and from a variety of photographers. The background paper is my creation using the overlay tutorial and a texture. The alpha is by Katie Pertiet and the other elements are out of the scrap kit “Autumn Tales” by Cheznora Design. Thanks for takin a peek!September 1, 2019 at 4:49 pm #34017Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Annie, you are so creative… I’m still trying to figure out a theme.September 1, 2019 at 4:58 pm #34020Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Wow , everyone is doing so great on this. I’m jealous! 🙂 I’ve been busy with necessary stuff so I’m way behind and still don’t have a theme but here are a couple of Day 1 efforts.
Flat Stanley was a school project of my granddaughter’s who lives in Texas. They needed to send Flat Stanley on a journey and she sent him to me in Illinois.
The other is a very crazy place in Texas called Cadillac Ranch. As you can see all the cadillacs are place upended and people just paint them any which way. I got a big chuckle from the no graffiti sign. Gotta love Texas!
