(#72752) Carole, I used the same size as the video. I kept going with the repeat command till I didn’t like it and then backed off a bit. I found the smaller pattern was a bit busy and wanted to see how big I could go. I wasn’t sure how to do the blur and blend thing and stumbled my way through, ended up with two raster layers with lino on them. When I’d hide one it would make the other one look weird (I cant seem to explain this part) even though it was two different layers layers. So I just merged the two layers together to keep the look you see in the layout. I’ve done lino before and don’t remember it doing that. More practice needed from me as I like this technique.
Really beautiful layouts from everyone and I love the lino and kaleidoscope papers you all have made.February 27, 2022 at 6:25 am #72757Anonymous
here is my result for Masks Lesson 6February 27, 2022 at 6:34 am #72760Theresa Di CesareParticipant
Carole – thank you 🙂
Lesson 3 – I downloaded the mask from the tutorial page, and I enlarged it a little and also altered the shape slightly using the ‘perspective’ option. The background kaleidoscope is made from a square from the original photo. The orange colour on the font is a colour-drop from my grandson’s top.

Day 6 – So many amazing and wonderful variations and colours with the ‘Lino’ effect are being presented!
It is a lot of fun playing around with this, BUT – then the issue of trying to decide which colour/pattern is the best to use – decisions!!February 27, 2022 at 8:25 am #72764Bonnie BallentineParticipant
#72752 I’m not sure how many pickleball T-shirts I have…5 or 6 maybe. If I played more tournaments I would have a lot.February 27, 2022 at 8:31 am #72765ChristianeParticipant
@cassel, I like to join the workshop day 7 but I can’t attend because my passwort will not be accepted. But it’s the same like before. Why?

Carole, actually the dark in the background is a shadow. I put a paper under the mask group and then brush stroked a lighter color around the paper and then made a shadow on the paper.February 27, 2022 at 10:55 am #72773CasselKeymaster
There was an incorrect link sent this morning for Lesson 7. I am sorry. Another email has been sent with the correct one. Please, check your inbox.February 27, 2022 at 11:11 am #72776Ann HassigParticipant
I didn’t have time during the week to work on the mask workshop so I started yesterday. I am not a scrapbooker but I’d like to learn the techniques. I’ve been using Affinity Photo for a few years and did not expect to be as confused as I am trying to do these masks. Will these tutorials be available after today? I’d still like to learn PSP and these skills but I’ve run short of time and brain cells! In Affinity I’ve done a lot with adjustments, a little compositing, using mask layers and have used templates with masks but these were clipping masks.

Thanks Susan. It helps to know others understand. And walking away (from PSP, from the news, from the darn vet!) once in a while is a GOOD thing, as you said.February 27, 2022 at 11:32 am #72783
Hi Ann, I bought Affinity for my macbook some time ago. But I’ve never learned it much since I got so involved with PSP. My brain, I think, can only learn one thing at a time. It would be difficult to transpose lessons from here to another program.February 27, 2022 at 11:34 am #72784
Gerry, I just love it! It made me laugh and I need that!February 27, 2022 at 11:38 am #72785
Oh Susan, that’s gonna be my new patron saint for sure!February 27, 2022 at 11:58 am #72787
Just today, when Lesson 7 has come out, am I finishing Lesson 3! When something works – and I don’t know why – I just go with the result. The first kaleidoscope image for the background that came up is the one I accepted. I don’t “do” scrapbooking in the traditional sense (weddings, births, big events) so this one to me feels “off” and unfinished. But I did it, and it worked for the most part.
In Lesson 2, I could NOT get the flood fill tool to fill in the background with the plaid I was finally able to make. Working with that many layers is just a little overwhelming, and I keep selecting the wrong layer and have to adjust it up and down in the Layers palette to try to achieve what I think I need to do. Then I just get tired of it and walk away. Sigh.
This is a pic of one of my college students from years ago on her special day. Not my photo, but one they had a professional take. I added a bit of light into the background of it b/c it just looked “flat” to me in the layout.

Another challenge draws to a close, I thoroughly enjoy all the challenges. It gives myself and everyone who participates a chance to become inspired by all the wonderful creative pages submitted, and for the newbies to persevere when they struggle, as everyone is so supportive, and helpful. I have chipped in, and helped a few of you out. We were all beginners, and understand what it takes to become knowledgeable in using PSP. With time and practise, you will reap the rewards, and become proud of yourselves of what you will achieve. PSP is a never ending learning process. As for you Carole, you put so much into the campus to enable us all to become more proficient in using PSP. I thank you.
Day 7. Polka dots. Macro photography. I love all insects, but when it come to bees, this particular family of bee the Megachilidae family, which consists of the Resin, Leafcutter and Mason, as a particular favourite of mine. They lead very complex, fascinating lives.
Instead of using a single polka dot, I created a triple, duplicated, and moved the one layer to the centre of the other layer, to achieve this effect. I used some noise, and blur. Alos I used one of Carole’s special fonts to create the frame around the photo, before creating the mask. I used a small size for the font, as I wanted the bee to give the impression of being a giant. Here is my final page, using my usual signature style.February 27, 2022 at 1:11 pm #72792Sherie DracupParticipant
Hi, Yes Carole, I did add a redial blur to my Mask 6 background. Here is my pic for Mask day 7. I used elements from Bella Gypsy “In my garden” mini. I learned so much with these lessons. Thanks so much.February 27, 2022 at 1:18 pm #72794Mary SolaasParticipant
I’m so behind, but I finally finished Project 4. Really loved what I came up with in the Kaleidoscope background – reminded me of an oriental rug! Found the oompa loompas on some website which was in jpg format and I had to work on it to make it a png, but now it is in my fun elements. This is my brother and me in St. Louis in 2013 on a tour of the city. The Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Factory is in “The Hill” district and you can have a tour of the factory. We were the only people in the tour on that day as it was the last part of the day. Fun.February 27, 2022 at 1:23 pm #72795
What you say about continuing is so true, and armed with new techniques and knowledge about use of tools never used or never used in a new way, it is also fun to get from where we were to where we now can go.
Thank you so much for introducing us to new things. I need to experiment more with PSP.February 27, 2022 at 1:31 pm #72796
Nicely done! I think everything fits together so well. I struggle with knowing which colours go with which but I recognize that everything in your composition works so well. Thank you for sharing.February 27, 2022 at 1:34 pm #72797
The colour choice makes the dog appear to almost jump out of the picture. Nice effect. Thank you for sharing.February 27, 2022 at 1:35 pm #72798
so cute … thank you for sharing.February 27, 2022 at 1:37 pm #72799
Such an inviting composition. Makes one want to be there. Thank you for sharing.February 27, 2022 at 2:22 pm #72800lavada vanceParticipant

Finally some time to work on the masks challenge. I’ve been part of it last year too, (Love story) so I’m only using the extra’s (Diamond) this course.
The church is in the village called “Woldendorp” here in the Netherlands.
Holle bolle Gijs is famous in the Netherlands: Holle Bolle Gijs
The plaid with the church was one I had in my stash, with the colorchanger I made it suitable with the project.
And the bulbs in the basket are from last year, The text says Waiting for spring. The dragonfly and the flowers on the bottom are picture tubes.February 27, 2022 at 2:42 pm #72807Susan EwartParticipant
Day 7 Layout. I enjoyed this tutorial. I like how we made the mask and the dots were fun to do and try different sizes. Thank you Carole for having these tutorials available for the Diamond members. I’m going to need to refer to them for some time to come.
Thanks again for putting this workshop on. I have being inspired by and learned from everybody. Cant wait till the next one.February 27, 2022 at 3:56 pm #72817Ellen GriffinParticipant
So, when it ‘clicked’ I made this…..love the dots, and the mask I made and thanks for the lessons!!!!February 27, 2022 at 4:38 pm #72820Joyce NeaseParticipant
One of my favorite new things in this lesson was learning how to move a mask without exposing the blank canvas behind it! It’s very simple, but in the past, I’ve just given up and re-done the whole project! Thank you, thank you!February 27, 2022 at 5:05 pm #72823fiona cookParticipant
I’m afraid my attempts for this last lesson have been disastrous so I have nothing to show yet. I can’t work out what I am doing wrong. I have created the frame shape more or less ok although there are some bare patches in it. The mask I tried to create just blanks out the photo and does not take on the frame shape. I intend to have another go tomorrow with a fresher brain perhaps but if there are any pointers for me, I would be grateful.
I agree with Sue when she thanks Carole for the effort she puts in for us all. Thank you so much.
