Let’s have some fun and share our creativity.
For this challenge, participants will be paired in the order of their posting. Poster 1 (after this post) will be paired with Poster 2, Poster 3 will be paired with Poster 4, and so on. You can post your name NOW seven before the pairs are created as they will come as you post.
Once you have your “teammate”, you will exchange ONE photo each and the other person will create a layout from it. If the image is 1000 pixels of less, you can post them in the forum. If they are larger than that, you can exchange emails through the messaging system so you can send the files.
Once the layout has been created, a 600-pixel version can be posted in the forum, and the original full-size version can be sent back to the teammate.
Are you up to this challenge?March 21, 2020 at 8:23 pm #40695
I’m up for it! Sounds as if it will be fun. Thanks Cassel!
POSTER #1March 22, 2020 at 7:15 pm #40735
I’ll take part in this challenge. It may be out of my comfort zone. Which will do me good. I’m pretty set in my style of PSPing and subject matter. Although I’m capable of creating almost anything myself. Through several years of Carol’s tuition.
You are now teamed up with Annie.March 22, 2020 at 8:37 pm #40740
Hi Sue. Here is my photo for you to use in this challenge. It is of my friend Carolyn when she was on an overseas trip about 6 years ago. I am not sure where this photo was taken … somewhere in Europe. Carolyn is a Clinical Nurse for Palliative Care here in Bundaberg and originally did her training in England where she was born and bred. She is a living saint, 🙂 I think we will have fun with this. <3March 22, 2020 at 8:49 pm #40741
Hi Annie. I recognise that sculpture, as I have visited it, many years ago, when I used to stay with my aunt and uncle in London. They used to take my brother and I to all the places of interest. It’s the Peter Pan sculpture, which is in Kensington Gardens, London. I’ve yet to choose a photo for you. I shall choose one and send it to you later on this evening. You are more organized than I am, I should have chose a photo first, and then signed up for the challenge. 🙂March 22, 2020 at 10:01 pm #40746
Hi Annie, after some thought I’ve sent you a photo of my Meg’s ears. Meg and I work for big ranchers, when they need us to help trail several hundred head of cows home after harvest, it is then we can trail them across vast areas of stubble fields and pasture land. The cows are coming home for the winter. We also take the cows out to their summer pasture in the Spring. Saskatchewan Prairies.March 22, 2020 at 11:25 pm #40755
Thanks Sue. I just love this photo and will definitely look to showcase it well. I will probably take a couple of days as I am battling with my copd at present. Self quarantined because of this darn virus which is causing so much havoc. It should give me more time to play but I am just so tired … well, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it, ;D I hope you are staying safe and well. If you are out and about in that beautiful country you should be fine. <3
P.S. I had a feeling that you would recognise that sculpture, it is quite amazing.March 23, 2020 at 11:43 am #40763
Hi Annie! You were right I did instantly recognize the sculpture. 🙂 There isn’t any rush to complete the page, it’s meant to be fun, and if you are not feeling up to it at the moment, that fine. Try to get out, even if you only walk around the house, for a bit of exercise and take in the fresh air. So far we are safe and well thank you. I shop locally once a fortnight, but I have enough provisions to last several months. You take are and stay safe. The weather is lovely here, so I’ll be spending time outside, my nearest neighbour is 2 miles away .March 23, 2020 at 7:03 pm #40785
You are right Sue, some fresh air and sunshine is needed right now. I may pop down to one of our beaches to indulge but it may have to be tomorrow as it is quite overcast here today. Stay healthy my friend.March 23, 2020 at 7:26 pm #40790
I’m very much a morning person, 5am is the best time of day. As the sun rises earlier and earlier so do I. It’s the best time of day to shoot anything and everything. Vitamin D on your body will do you the power of good Annie. Just being outside is a tonic in itself Annie. Hope you perk up soon. Now then, back to the challenge. After a full morning in the garden, and picked up tree branches from the wind we had a few days ago. Evening meal prepared I got down to creating my page. I had ample time to plan my page whilst outside. I focused on Peter Pan sculpture. I created everything myself, well other than the book which I got off pgntree, and a pic of the book cover from Amazon. Lots of different techniques involved, text on a curve, label, outlined text, masks, masked flowers is my own photo, gradient for background paper, frames using rectangle preset shape and a silhouette of Peter pan I found online. I found the two photos of the Long Water and garden from the Kensington site. I think that’s it. It all came together quite quickly. Creating the page also took me down memory lane. Thank you Annie for being my partner. We’ll have to do it again! I do hope that you approve Annie. Be careful, and stay safe my dear!March 23, 2020 at 7:35 pm #40791
Annie, if you want the uncompressed file, would you give me your email address so I can send it to you.March 23, 2020 at 7:42 pm #40792
I would like to try at this challenge, too. We need another PostPerson! :o)
Poster #3March 24, 2020 at 7:29 pm #40812
OMG! Sue this is truly beautiful. You have really showcased the photo beautifully and the other photos accompany it nicely. They are lovely photos … yours I presume. All the work you have done is so splendidly accomplished and the misted flowers blended in are just perfect. Challenge well met! Thank you Sue, so very much appreciated. My email addy is [email protected] Hugs to you my friend. <3March 24, 2020 at 8:01 pm #40815
Well Sue, I was not sure which way to go so I have created two pages.
For the first I used my layout template and the papers etcetera are from a kit titled ‘Cowgirl’s Life’.
The second I again used my layout, the papers I created and used different blends to achieve contrasting effects. The poppy flower and horseshoe are out of my growing collection of elements. The pointer is one from Pixel Scrappers and I think that I created the journal frame but … if you find out that I am fibbing let me know as I don’t want to take credit for something I did not create. I hope these are to your satisfaction Sue. I love this photo for it’s simplicity and raw beauty.
If you would like the uncompressed file for either or both just let me know via email and I will attach for you.
Thank you my friend. <3March 24, 2020 at 9:00 pm #40818
I would like to have a team mate
Poster #4March 24, 2020 at 9:37 pm #40819
What can I say, I love them both Annie! If I had to choose one, it would be the second one. I love the colour blue that you used in the page. Saskatchewan is called Land of living sky. Probably unknowing to you, the corner punch could be used as a saddle rack, and strips going horizontal and vertical are typical of the Sask roads. As all roads go either north south, or east west. You did the photo proud, the simplicity of the photo also came through in both layouts. Well done indeed my friend! Thank you. I’ve sent you an email.March 24, 2020 at 9:50 pm #40821CasselKeymaster
Shirley and Minka, you are now teammates!March 25, 2020 at 9:09 am #40823
Looks like it’s YOU and Me! :o)
Sending my photo. It was taken at the Bar Harbor Inn in Maine on the last trip before my husband passed. It brings me a lot of joy to remember that trip. I wish it was bigger for you … but at least it’s colorful! NZ was on Earthcam and I used to watch a harbor — I think it’s was in Queensland. I loved that view on Earthcam. Is that anywhere near you?March 25, 2020 at 6:49 pm #40826
Hi Minka here is my photo for you.I thought I would send you water too. This is the bridge that brings you over the river and into our town. I live in a pretty little town of 4000 population in New Zealand. Queensland is in Australia which is our sister country. You can do whatever you like with the photo. It was taken by a local photographer who shares her photos, she has a knack of capturing some special scenes.March 25, 2020 at 7:01 pm #40827
It’s gorgeous, Shirley! Will be fun, for sure, to play with that! :o)March 25, 2020 at 8:31 pm #40832
I took some liberties with your picture, Shirley. I am an ocean, boater, fisherwoman at heart So, that’s what you got. Fishing theme. :o) I would sit on a boat and fish every day all day if I could. I don’t keep them. I haul them in and let them go. It’s just the sport of it. (Probably not from the fish’s point of view!) BTY … I was wrong, it’s Queenstown that I watch. We can watch the boat that takes tourists out … and then come back. It’s far off in the distance, but very recognizable. The mountains in that scene behind the water … well, it’s just stunning scenery. Have a good night everyone. I played a great deal of the day with Cassel’s free class instruction today and did some of the Cartoon, Watercolor, etc etc while of course the laundry sat on the machine. Guess I have to go pay attention to chores now. 🙁 This social distancing is giving me a little too much free time to play on the computer! I sure hope it’s working though. Only three known cases in my county of Florida.March 26, 2020 at 2:36 am #40875
Hi Minka, I love what you did with my photo, you are a queen. How did you guess I have a fishing family. We have a fishing cottage at one of the the locations where Lord of the rings was filmed. I live only an hours drive from Queenstown and there she is, the Earnslaw Lady of the lake.
I hope you like what I have done with your photo. You mentioned the word bright, so that is what you get. I must go now and check out Carole’s presentationMarch 26, 2020 at 5:15 am #40876
I absolutely love what you made from my photo send! Gorgeous. I recognize all those spots. Been there many times. While it’s a beautiful place, it’s a little crowded with visitors and reflects it in the prices, too. Many Mainer’s leave it for the tourists to enjoy. We know the more hidden or isolated places in the State we keep for ourselves. 🙂 I hope more people do the photo trade as it isn’t hard and I love seeing what everyone does. Thank you for being my partner!March 26, 2020 at 5:39 am #40877
It was fun, this was my first official day in lock down so it was a good way to spend some time, maybe we could do another photo while we are waiting for more participants. What do you think. But for now I am off to bed.March 26, 2020 at 10:34 am #40882MicheleParticipant
That’s some wonderful work you’re doing. I don’t really have any pics so I’m going to have to be an armchair participant.March 26, 2020 at 4:54 pm #40898
Michele, go to unsplash and get some photos from there.March 26, 2020 at 9:06 pm #40900
Wow! Minka and Shirley, you did each other proud. I love how your pages turned out, well done my friends. <3March 27, 2020 at 5:15 am #40906MicheleParticipant
Thanks, Shirley. I’m also just not in the mood. I live just outside of NYC and I’m feeling very out of sorts emotionally due to what’s going on. NY state has the highest numbers for the virus in terms of how many infected and how many deaths so it’s very tense here. I can’t really give my creative side the concentration it deserves so I’ve been trying to distract myself by doing mindless online jigsaw puzzles and binge watching Grace and Frankie on Netflix. On the bright side, Grace and Frankie is awesome! <3
