Just had a look at your Mask projects they are fabulous.
I signed up for the Quick Pages and the Mask Workshop but time hasn’t allowed me to get right into it, but I have just started the first mask project. Hopefully I can finish it this evening and post it on the forum. I can’t believe how far behind I am.
There really are some lovely creative pages on the forum.February 25, 2022 at 12:52 pm #72545
In answer to your question “Did you use the kaleidoscope tool to create the large background pattern?” Yes I did. It was actually a mistake. It took me a bit to figure out the smaller kaleidoscope backgrounds.
BTW Great respect here, I don’t know how you look at everyone’s creations and comment on each one personally. It is a great talent. Thanks

Masks Workshop Day 4. I like creating Masks and paper with brushes. I pulled my colors from the photos themselves.February 25, 2022 at 2:12 pm #72549
Day 5. This winter has been a winter for owls. I have never seen so many. This one caught a vole to dine on. I used a watercolour splatter brush. The word art took me a little longer to do than the rest of the page.February 25, 2022 at 3:20 pm #72551
I have tried to work on Mask assignment #2. It has been a distracting week for me with deadlines all around for other work I do, and a vet emergency (that worked out, thank goodness). I continue to have so much trouble with all the steps to convert to a mask. I have spent too much time on it already, and just gave up on the plaid part. Wouldn’t work for me at all! This is as far as I got, and it’s a mess, but I know folks here are kind. I will continue to practise!!!February 25, 2022 at 3:27 pm #72553
Here’s my Masks-Day5 – Logan-Yum! Followed Carole’s video pretty closely; used a gradient for the background and applied a leather texture. This was the day of great-grand Logan’s first birthday, in the morning, during breakfast at home. The title font is Mama and the smaller one for “yum!” is called Milkimo Cheesecake. I created a square frame with rounded corners and filled it with gray and applied a bevel.February 25, 2022 at 3:35 pm #72555Connie CollierParticipant
Lesson 5: never give up! At first I did everything wrong with this one and had to solve endless mysteries with my layers and tools. It’s so easy to get lost. This is where I ended up – I forgot to add a final frame of some kind and decided not to use any drop shadows.February 25, 2022 at 3:44 pm #72556
Julie, beautiful city and layout well done. So sad in the news 🙁February 25, 2022 at 3:46 pm #72557
Connie, that’s beautiful! That carved pole is magnificent!February 25, 2022 at 3:53 pm #72560Anonymous
Here is my result for Masks Lesson4-Extra

I used a background paper by Jessica Dunn, from DigitalScrapbook, called Relax. The brush is called Clover Floer and I found adjusting the opacity of the brush setting helped create a variety. It looks better viewed larger.February 25, 2022 at 4:17 pm #72562
Looks like you did a fine job to me. Appropriate subject with all that is going on.
LyndaFebruary 25, 2022 at 4:19 pm #72563
Very nice. Love your bird brush, I’m assuming.
LyndaFebruary 25, 2022 at 4:21 pm #72565Ellen GriffinParticipant
Whew! I will do more of these….but not today:-)
My description says it all and it’s not exactly how I pictured what I wanted but got the method….thanks for looking.
EDIT! Did another one and really like it…..this is going to be done a lot:-) thanks and here is the kitten. It’s more like what I wanted to wind up with…..

I find I need to redo things and review the video two or three times to get the mask making to work out. But, now I know it can be done at least for scrapbooking. Carole, do you have a video on creating a mask to change a background for a picture. I think I may be ready to sign up for Platinum access. Is the offer still available?
The picture I chose was an old black and white picture taken in the 40’s that I scanned this winter. The family had fun trying to names to the farmers and their wives in the picture. My own mother and father are near the righthand side.February 25, 2022 at 4:55 pm #72569Lois Duckworth

Lynda #72563 – yes, it’s a bird brush I made on the fly (no pun intended!) for the project.February 25, 2022 at 5:44 pm #72574
LOL nice jobFebruary 25, 2022 at 5:46 pm #72576
This is just for fun. Carole said this masking business was addicting so don’t blame me. 😀February 25, 2022 at 6:21 pm #72580Anne LampParticipant
Day 5 It is so great to see so may beautiful projects with this challenge. I know most of them have been a real challenge for me, and from what I have read for some others too.February 25, 2022 at 6:26 pm #72582Corrie KinkelParticipant
Day 5. We were in a gardencentre this afternoon and they had lovely Camelias on display. Gardencentres are great places for flowerphotos if you are not in the position to see them in the “wild”. Besides a spotted brush, which I think comes with PSP, I used the Extra day 5 swirl brushes. The background is made of a white paper with an overlay of a watercolor paper with leaves.February 25, 2022 at 6:34 pm #72583EukaParticipant
Day 5 – Bright is at the foothills of the Victorian Alps and an amazing place to visit in autumn as the colours are spectacular. The Ovens River runs through the small town and as it starts in the alps the water is cool, clear and clean.
I used a dots 100 brush and think I got a bit trigger happy with the stamping! The top font is Gabrielle and the other is FansiPensleTwo. The background paper was created with texture noise filter from Redfield.
Btw Carole – I created a new workspace in 2020 and that finally fixed my problem with masks causing a shutdown. I hadn’t made any changes so not sure why it decided to act up.February 25, 2022 at 6:42 pm #72585ChristianeParticipant
Tried my first pattern …. and a few more. Hopefully it was Day 3 masksFebruary 25, 2022 at 6:45 pm #72586
Making the plaid pattern from Lesson 2 Masks: At minutes 4:41 to 4:55, Carole copies and pastes a small selection from which to get the colours for the plaid. It’s the pasting part that is NOT working for me. Is it paste to a new LAYER or to new image? When I do Ctrl+V it doesn’t work the way it did in the video. Any help appreciated.

Julie, once you have made your selection, edit, copy, then edit, paste as new image. I suspect you are not using the step, edit and copy, before pasting as a new image. Also make sure the selection is set to add, and not remove. Hope this helps.February 25, 2022 at 6:59 pm #72590Theresa Di CesareParticipant
Mask – Lesson 1
After a recent walk along the beach I saw some shells, mostly with holes in them and couldn’t resist in taking a few snaps.
I’m hoping to learn a lot about masks as I don’t 100% understand them – how to use them, how to create them, and where to utilise them, and how to or if you can adjust them etc etc.February 25, 2022 at 7:15 pm #72591
Thanks Ann. My heart is so heavy. What a world! It’s all I could think of when I was selecting photos to use.February 25, 2022 at 7:17 pm #72592
Oh Sue, it’s the “paste as new image” that I was missing! I was using the Ctrl+V command. I am still working on it! Thanks.February 25, 2022 at 7:18 pm #72593
Julie, pleased I could be of assistance. Sue
