I struggled with making a plaid to the colour selection I really wanted as I would have preferred to use blue of the sky and brown from the smaller photos. but the strip selections didn’t pick up the range of these colours to make enough of a stripey effect. I don’t know why but after several attempts, abandoned this and took my selection from the main photo. Looking at it now, reduced down, with the darker plaid, I think the yellow aura around the text should extend more to under the main title.February 23, 2022 at 7:58 am #72254
Carole, thank you for the clarification on the split text shadowing. Thinking back, I have used that technique as a heading, being much larger I used a shadow, which worked well.February 23, 2022 at 8:47 am #72256
Fiona: I play with a lot of plaids and if I wanted to make the one you mention, I would take one of the small photos and manipulate it, even twisted on an angle, until I could select the colors I want. I usually try to work on an image that measures 500 x 500, then snip a 1 pixel by 500 strip from it and enlarge that to 500×500 again. Duplicate the layer and rotate it 90 degrees and drop the opacity on it to 50%. That would be my pattern, which can be further manipulated in the materials palette. Hope this helps.
I experimented with your photos and made you a sample plaid.February 23, 2022 at 9:13 am #72259sandra jonesParticipant
Here is my day #3. I used a kit called “A perfect day” by Marie H designs.
Carole I am truly bad about putting a title and names on my scrapbook pages. Every now and then I need that reminder. Thanks.February 23, 2022 at 11:52 am #72261Lynda DiGregorParticipant
This is just for fun and practice.
Carole’s plaid tutorial, Carole’s rain tutorial, the airbrush tool to emphasize the text, some masks that I have and my photos. You will probably see these flowers again. 🙂February 23, 2022 at 11:53 am #72262RICHARD MORRISParticipant

Hi, I got a little behind. Here is my pic from Mask 2. I did struggle with the plaid as it overwhelmed the flowers, so I blended few other pages to tone it down. I used the bee from an old download called Bird & Bees elements by Holly Wood. It was from a blog train. I also used the tag from another blog train from January 2017 by Triple J Designs. My font is Little Black Dress.February 23, 2022 at 12:13 pm #72268Hank SobahParticipant
Day 3 Mask Project, created my own pattern using Painter Essentials, and chose a them of a jam session invitation, adding a frame and some 3d effects.

Day 3 layout. You are not kidding, kaleidoscope-ing (new word of the day!) is addicting. I settled on this background to keep it clean and white-ish. Photo is mine, from the Greater Vancouver Zoo. On this day this peacock was guarding the pop vending machine and wouldn’t let people near it. Hilarious. I had previously downloaded masks from Digital Scrapbook but had no idea how to use them. Loved this lesson.February 23, 2022 at 1:08 pm #72273Sherie DracupParticipant
I used the mask provided, and made a pattern out of the picture working it until it was all greens. I used a few elements from the-studio-hello-mother-blog-hop, and a preset heart removing the inside to make the large heart frame.February 23, 2022 at 1:24 pm #72275CasselKeymaster
Richard, did you get the emails for the first 3 days? Did you get the links to the tutorials?February 23, 2022 at 1:37 pm #72276
Day 3. I used the Kaleidoscope on one of the snake photos until I got the colours I was looking for, I then used other effects, and a blur. Due to the photos being to wide for the templates, I created my own basic masks. Negative effect, for the title, Garter Snakes, and a simple round tag for the text. Corner frame is a font. I love snakes, especially the garter snakes, I go out early looking for them basking in the sun to warm up. I have learnt not to pick them up without wearing gloves, as they will, when struggling to get away, emit a fowl smell from their anal gland. Which can take days to wash off my hands. Even though they have striking colours, you try looking for one, which can be right under your nose. I have added the tag to make reading more legible, due the original page being resized to 600 pixels.February 23, 2022 at 1:47 pm #72279laurie solaasParticipant
Here is my Day 2. We had fun playing in the snow with our little grand-niece!February 23, 2022 at 1:52 pm #72280
It was lesson 2 and I don’t like plaids so didn’t do a plaid:-) Will later—maybe:-)February 23, 2022 at 1:53 pm #72281
Sue, your garter snakes are beautiful! Such striking colors! I had a few as captures when I was a teen; have always liked snakes but I’d turn them loose shortly after because I didn’t know how to care for them. They always feel warm and smooth to touch, not slimy like earthworms! 😉February 23, 2022 at 2:09 pm #72283Royanne HewkoParticipant
Day 3, I started with the mask and edited, painting black or white as I needed it. The result was just to show the girls. I air brushed the paper with colours from the picture and used different blend modes to get the paper I wanted. I reduced the blend on the picture so it would blend into the paper. Used a flower stamp and a quote from the internet.February 23, 2022 at 2:20 pm #72190
I have finished day 2 of Masks and decided to show 3 of our homes, of course TEXAS is the largest 🙂 Hope you enjoy my share.February 23, 2022 at 2:40 pm #72286
Ann, thank you so much. When I was a teen in Wales, I used to capture grass snakes, not as brightly coloured as the garter, but it’s equivalent. I used to catch insects for them, especially grasshoppers. I too used to release them back into the wild after a day or so. They love water, as they like to dine on frogs, as well as mice and voles. Their eyes are memorizing, and as you say wonderful to the touch.February 23, 2022 at 2:58 pm #72290
Ann, thank you for your tips on how I could achieve the colouring I was after for my blue plaid background and thank you for taking the time to make me a special plaid. So thoughtful and helpful. I have copied it and used it directly in a version 2 of my design. Later I will try the techniques that you suggest for making the plaid square in the first place. Here below for comparison.February 23, 2022 at 3:04 pm #72292
I must admit that I don’t find some of these techniques quick to do and like some others here have to go over the instructions/video a few times. However usually it works out and I hope practice improves it all. Thanks for all the help and the resources. I am continuing with my Devon theme from recent visits with friends.February 23, 2022 at 3:04 pm #72293lavada vanceParticipant

Here’s my Mask#3 – Logan, who just turned One on Feb 6. He’s not ready to really chat yet but he sure tries!February 23, 2022 at 3:51 pm #72297Joyce NeaseParticipant
So many creative people posting beautiful pages! Loved the kaleidoscope tutorial! I see many hours ahead learning about these possibilities! My goal in scrapbooking is to make photobooks of our family history and photos to pass down. My first family photo is from 1876, so much work to do!February 23, 2022 at 4:17 pm #72299
This is Day 3 Workshop results…..

Sue Thomas, reply #72217,
That’s why I added ‘quit colorful’ , it’s not my custom indeed. I do indeed think too little about using labels or tags.

Thank you, and no, that’s not me in the picture with my grandmother. It’s my daughter. This is a photo from 1981.February 23, 2022 at 5:18 pm #72303Lynda DiGregorParticipant
I love your school layout. Where in California is this? The only one room schoolhouse I ever attended (for two days) was in Denmark.

I finally finished day 2. I made lots of notes for myself on creating the masks and I think I can finally do that again. I was able to make the plaid, but didn’t make notes, so I will go back to try to get that figured out better. This statue is at my church that was named after this saint.February 23, 2022 at 5:55 pm #72307Corrie KinkelParticipant
Day 3 with the Extra Mask. It is a bit the same color as the other 2 days but so far it are all trees that flower in early spring and they tend to have a lot of pink, lilac and white colors. What now is part of a frame was an open space in the mask through which you could see the background paper. But that made it a bit to bland so I turned it into a darker frame to give it a bit of pep. The kaleidoskop background is very subtle otherwise it overpowers the delicate colors of the flowers.February 23, 2022 at 5:55 pm #72308Joyce NeaseParticipant
This was outside of Petaluma, CA, north of San Francisco. I think it closed and merged with a bigger school the year after I ‘graduated’ from 6th grade. But the schoolhouse is still there! It must have an historical designation.
