To end this magazine challenge, it would need things real magazines have too, but will do that later. I think I’m gonna print it first, then look what it needs more, maybe change some colours etc……
But it was fun to do! The weather wasn’t so great over here, so it was nice to make paper cards and for variety this magazine 🙂
Thanks Carole for the challenge! 🙂August 22, 2021 at 4:17 pm #62416Marie-ClaireParticipant
wow! you all have worked so much, so nice to see all those beautiful and different pages. It’s Sunday evening 22:15
I’ve been absent for 3 days, so I have a lot to catch up on.
Val, thank you so much for your sweet commentAugust 22, 2021 at 5:15 pm #62419Sheila HoggParticipant
Well, some great things have been created on here with this challenge. I was all up for doing this and my week became busier than i anticipated it was going to be. I started the first page but could not for the life of me do something I thought would pass muster. I was going to have another go at it today, everything going well, H/W getting done and then it happened. I slipped in the kitchen, hit my knee and shoulder on the way down and have been in some discomfort ever since. I don’t think I have bust anything but if I am in jyp tomorrow I will have no alternative but to go to A & E. So easily done and of course I was not wearing good enough footwear. Anyway, well done ladies, marvelous works of PSP art.August 22, 2021 at 5:31 pm #62421Art KuiperParticipant
Here is the final page of my magazine challenge project. Sue Thomas asked in a comment if I had ever carved a Celtic Love spoon and I have not. But the comment inspired me to create this last page. So, a big thank you, Sue T.
In the process of doing this project I have learned to become very proficient with creating and modifying masks. I will now use them more often in my work. I am definitely looking forward to another week-long challenge.
As this is the last page of this project, I wanted to thank everyone for sharing their wonderful ideas and interests with us. I have added some acknowledgements to this page to recognize a few whose comments were particularly helpful. Note: your names will not be shared outside this forum.
Until next time.August 22, 2021 at 5:44 pm #62424Anne LampParticipant

Art, you have created a grand last page. The advert gives recognition to the craftsman. Who knows, perhaps one day you will turn your hand to creating Celtic love spoons. It always gives me great pleasure when I can inspire others. I don’t mind my name leaving the forum, for anyone who reads the name, other than those in the forum, I could be Sue Thomas the FBI agent! lolAugust 22, 2021 at 6:07 pm #62428August 22, 2021 at 8:09 pm #62429Annie TobinParticipant
LOL! Minka it happens to me all the time but I think the secret is to choose them in the reverse order … I think, LOL! Beautiful and humourous page my friend. ;DAugust 22, 2021 at 10:47 pm #62433CasselKeymaster
Fiona, are you going to have a complete recipe magazine? That would be a fun way to share your favorite recipes!
Val, your magazine will really tell a nice story for your husband and the boys! And with fewer embellishments, you can create more pages faster too!
Minka, that will make for a nice double-page! And I also had a laugh when they called it “on-ree”. That is OBVIOUSLY a French pronunciation but it is the first time I hear one of those hurricane names said like that! I can’t even say it the same way English people say it, trying to do it in French, while I am French speaking myself! We might get some wind by Tuesday. Thirty years ago, we were hit by hurricane Bob.
Ann S., that is a great display of that trip. If you have more photos and stories, you can reuse any of the previous templates and tweak them, rotate them, etc.
Nadine, did you ever see a magazine with only 8 pages? You will HAVE to continue, reusing the templates again, tweaking them, or creating your own!
Karon, adding a page numbering makes your pages so realistic. Looking at them, I can definitely imagine them in a magazine. On pages 7 and 9 however, the justified text does not give the best result. I find that you will get good results with that alignment ONLY when the lines include many words. When they have few words, the spacing tends to look too obvious.
Sue, that was a very interesting trip to Wales. I have never been there, but now, I have had at least a glimpse of it!
Corrie, that table of content is fantastic! That is a great idea and you executed it very well too.
Monique, those are fun facts to share. They really have a sense of humor!
Marie-Claire, don’t worry, the thread will stay open so you can post your projects as you complete them.
Sheila, take care of yourself. The lessons will still be there when you feel better!
Art, that is such a fun idea to incorporate the “reviewers”. A nice touch! I hope you will create more pages for more of your woodworking projects!
Anne L., is one of your photos naturally “cloudy”? If not, maybe your mask is grey. If it is cloudy like that from the start, maybe you can use the Levels to make it match the others?August 23, 2021 at 12:22 am #62434laurie solaasParticipant
Well, it’s day seven of the magazine challenge, and I am three days behind. I struggled today with both day five and six. I finally figured out what I was doing wrong with day six and I fixed it. Then, I went back to day 5. When I inserted my pictures I’m into the template, my new mask was partly translucent. I could not figure out what I did for wrong, so I created new masks. I will post my creations tomorrow. I still need to add background and text.
Oh well, I am a little sad that I don’t have images to upload tonight. But it is what it is.August 23, 2021 at 12:26 am #62436Gerry LandrethParticipant
Here is the last of my companions/friends.
I have enjoyed everyone’s posts. I feel like I’ve been on two, maybe three, vacations, learned to be an expert carver, and make a mean carrot cake – all in seven days.
Carole – Thanks for another fun and interesting challenge.August 23, 2021 at 3:05 am #62451Annie TobinParticipant
I too have enjoyed all the posts, beautiful work and wonderful memories shared. There is always a slight sense of let down when something like this is finished … but, I am now being swept up in a new challenge … learning scripting! Last pages dear friends, Day 7 and the back cover. Thanks for takin a peek. 😉August 23, 2021 at 9:43 am #62456Anne LampParticipant
Cassel – Thanks for the suggestion. This waterfall was way far away down in the Waimea Canyon on Maui so I had my camera set at max zoom. It was also in the shade. I wanted to use it because of it’s location and this is the best I could get it to look and I did a number of things to it some I kept and some I didn’t like the looks of. I did go back and tried a couple more things and got it to look a little better.August 23, 2021 at 10:41 am #62461August 23, 2021 at 10:49 am #62462Susan EwartParticipant
WOW! These are all amazingly beautiful. And informative too. I had very busy weeks and didn’t even have time to look until now. I’m in awe at what you all created. Cassel, any thoughts about one day turning this into a purchasable course like the basic course that could be done as a persons time permits.August 23, 2021 at 11:56 am #62463
Carole, Thank you for the encouragement. I did notice the justification problem, but decided for the exercise just to go with it. Should I decide to have the “magazine” printed out, I will rectify that by doing the text in a different program and importing it in.August 23, 2021 at 11:57 am #62464
I just want to say how enchanted I am with all the various magazines being produced. They all are so well done and I have enjoyed reading what everyone has to say.August 23, 2021 at 12:53 pm #62477EukaParticipant
These pages are in the process of being redone but are still a work in progress. To show I have been working on them I decided to post these anyway on one page. I do have my template for page 7 and have also been working on a few extra pages that eventually I hope to have them printed once I finishing reworking some of these.
PSP (2021) is so slow for me it is very frustrating, on checking the temp log almost every other line says send request failed or cannot get server response properly and the elapsed times are crazy.
Thanks Carole for this challenge it has been interesting and my favourite ‘take away’ from this challenge is how to create and adjust a template, something that I usually ‘stuff up”.
The pages presented here by everyone are awesome – thanks all for the information and inspiration.August 23, 2021 at 2:09 pm #62493Diane CoParticipant
I finished up the last two pages. I liked the challenge. Learning about templates and masks was very useful. I changed one page into 3 pictures from one and for the split picture I was able to finagle a picture to fit and learned a lot in the process.
The final page of making my own template didn’t come together the way I expected but after a lot of fooling around I got it to work for me. I am so grateful for this fun week. Thank you for the tutorials Carole.August 23, 2021 at 2:34 pm #62497Diane CoParticipant
and finally the entire Zine.

it was fun and educationalAugust 23, 2021 at 3:12 pm #62500August 23, 2021 at 5:50 pm #62506Corrie KinkelParticipant
To finish my magazine I made a back cover too. I used one of the extra templates and more or less the same style as the frontcover. Same gradient, white lines and font. Another photo but with a lowered opacity because it is the back and some info about the magazine. Maybe I’ll add extra pages over time and print it then.August 23, 2021 at 6:49 pm #62511fiona cookParticipant
Hi all, I got up to Day 7 but my week has turned out really busy so I am hoping that the forum will keep going for a few more days. The idea Carole of a recipe magazine scrapbook based on my garden to kitchen adventures has some potential. Thank you for the suggestion. It would take me a long time so I would need to devote myself to the project. In the meantime I will endeavour to contribute with Day 7 and Day 8 offerings later in the week hopefully and complete the survey then. I hope this is OK. Thank you and all the members for the tutorials and advice.August 24, 2021 at 5:14 am #62520CristinaParticipant
Wow, there is so much to take in after I haven’t been here for a while… As Gerry said, I also traveled, learned about some family history, recipes, carving, garden… you name it! … The contribution of each one is what makes all the challenges so interesting… I am inspired and also learn from all of you… I thank Carole, Val, and Fiona for mentioning me in your comments.
I stopped working on my layouts, as good weather, going out, and other things came in between, but I will finish the other pages and probably tweak some I have already done, as I usually do.
Like Annie, I am also learning scripting… a totally new experience, and it is already fun… So let’s see when I will be pulling my hair! 🙂
Hope to see all of you next time/challenge! Best wishesAugust 24, 2021 at 5:16 am #62521CristinaParticipant
Sheila, sorry to hear about your fall and I hope everything is ok with you. Take care! <3August 24, 2021 at 9:50 am #62533liberaParticipant
Hello @ all, I’m really late, but still job first, pleasure later 🙂
Congrats to all of you for such great ideas and fantastic layouts. I have really struggled with my choice, because too many ideas … So I decided to show a few of hundreds of photos I made of trees over the years.August 24, 2021 at 10:01 am #62542liberaParticipant
