    I have gone back to a color palette site to browse and pick some color palettes for you. This month, I was inspired by a photo of the sea, along the beach, with those blues and aqua shades. Hopefully, those colors will inspire you. Use them to create a background, frames, elements, etc.

    Can you create a project using these colors?

    What, nobody here?

    This palette, although it has sort of beach colors, didn’t let me think of the sea, but it made me think of the Blue Herons I have seen nestling in Marymoor Park. I came there almost every day with my daughter walking the dogs. At that time we couldn’t see the young birds but we certainly could hear them. My daughter told me today she sees them now flapping their wings on the edges of the nests; so it will not take long and they all are gone until next year.

    I startes with a template from the Mask Workshop, but adapted it for my photos. The background is also a photo used as an overlay and blurred. I am making al sorts of elements from the tutorials and labs. This time I wanted to make letter beads and I used the colors from the palette. For the string and datestamp too. In the Q&A session from last Sunday Carole explained how I could solve the problem with an outline on text. Of course I wanted to show that I’m happy to be able to use it.

    Awe! Corrie, sorry to see you were here on your own.  Not for long though, I have joined you.  🙂  Lovely layout, the beads are a  great addition to the page.

    Yesterday I  took off at 6am, it was such a  calm, surreal, eerie morning, that I  had to take to the water with the kayak.

    Here are some shots I took. The middle photo was the first shot, then the top photo, and the bottom. It takes roughly 15 mins to get to the  dam. I have 2 kayaks, a 14ft orange one, which I have showcased previously, and this  12ft one.

    I have included the written page, in case it isn’t readable in the  layout.  I copied and paste the text from the internet, using the selection tool technique. I used a torn out sheet of paper I had previously created.

    A question for Carole, I didn’t use a shadow on the  GD,  as it didn’t look right. it made it look heavy.  I suppose I could have used a shadow on it’s own layer, and erased it from the filigrane pattern. Even a small shadow was to much in my opinion.  Do you think it warrants a shadow?  I did  intertwine the two letters.

    I resurrected the crochet lace script after a very long period of time of being dormant. I had forgotten I had it, so much quicker than making my own.

    Sue, to answer your question, the alternative for the shadow would be to have it with a lower opacity. You might need to test what would make SOME shadow without adding weight to it.

    Carole, thank you for the feedback. I played with the opacity, and blur in varying degrees. I still wasn’t happy with it with a shadow. I’ll have another play with it and post it here.

    The filigrane element is a little like a delicate lace: the shadow isn’t well defined because it is so small. So overall, it would be blurred and faint. Very blurred and faint!

    I totally agree with you. I will adopt the same shadowing as I do for lace. The faintest of faint. It can be quite tricky to get it just right. Of course the larger the element the better the shadowing will appear on really fine details. Lol

    Here is my result for Lab 12-module 5 and for this challenge, too – at  the same time

    Edward the Booble is a gigantic creature who appears in Moominpappa’s Memoirs. Despite his intimidating size, he is a very nice and gentle creature who takes care not to step on people. If he ever accidentally steps on someone and kills them, he makes sure to fund the funeral and cries a whole week afterward…

    Reading the above posts, I now realize I should have posted my latest creation in here as it is all about the June palette.

    Pirkko: Edward the Booble is new to me and is so delightful I just had to share the website with my children to pass along to the little ones. We like to research our Ancestry and my grandfather, Emil Haggquist, emigrated here from Finland (deemed Russia at the time due to conquest).

     Ann, it’s really interesting to hear this. I’m putting here one site I found about Genealogy and it’s apparently about this genus. I hope this helps.

    Pirkko: Thank you for that research! I went in and started a family tree on that site and they offered to switch me to the USA site. My daughter does this on Ancestry.com but I don’t think she has much from that branch of the family, so thank you, again!
