I am offering you a scavenger hunt where you have to find some elements and combine them to create a layout or a project. Are you up to the challenge? Although you don’t have to create those elements, you also have that option, so either you use what you have downloaded or you can still make them from scratch. Your end result must include ALL of those elements ;). I added some links to tutorials (only accessible to our DIAMOND members) but you can also use elements created from scripts.
- Twill tape/ribbon (tutorial here)
- Metal rings
- Journaling strips (tutorial here)
- Diamond pattern (tutorial here or here)
- Straight pin (tutorial here)
You can choose any theme you want, so what will you create with those elements?May 23, 2021 at 5:16 pm #58455
I have said it before, I do enjoy the scavenger hunt challenges. It gets the old grey matter remembering techniques which I have learnt in the past, and fetches them once more to the forefront of my mind. Nothing to complicated. I’m a huge fan of the out of bounds technique, and when I can I always take the opportunity to use it. Cassel’s knotted ribbon. I used a photo for the background paper, something I have a preference for rather than use a patterned paper. My usual word art, where I used delicate fonts, as this plant is small and ever so delicate itself. I slipped an extracted flower into the top knot. 1 Twill ribbon. 2 Metal ring frames. 3 Journaling strips. 4 Diamond pattern, 5 Straight pin ( I fall back on this element which I made ever such a long time ago).May 23, 2021 at 5:17 pm #58457
Here is the diamond paper I made for the ribbon, used in the main image. Again it had to be delicate and subtle.May 23, 2021 at 6:26 pm #58462
Sue, Love what you did with the scavenger hunt.May 23, 2021 at 7:17 pm #58463
Thank you Lynda, the kind comments always mean a lot to me. Everyone has been ever so busy creating incredible pages. It’s hard to find the time to go thoroughly take them all in, noting all the different techniques and approaches taken in each creation. We are all an awesome small, unique, friendly, helpful community.May 24, 2021 at 6:08 am #58481MicheleParticipant
Fantastic, Sue!May 24, 2021 at 9:04 am #58483
Good morning Michele. Thank you so much.May 24, 2021 at 1:25 pm #58504
I finally actually did a Scavenger Hunt. I tried in March and it didn’t work out in time. Here’s my May version. Diamond paper background. Twill ribbon border in wood duck pattern using cass-mitered-corner-frame script; also cass-bow17 script. I now have all my frames inside PSP and this one is labeled cass-frame01. The straight pin is holding a journaling strip and metal rings are scattered.

Another one, this time featuring the Robin and ground squirrel. As you know the squirrels enjoy an apple a day. Frames with a difference, added metal ringsMay 24, 2021 at 11:15 pm #58513
Sue, as always beautiful work on both of these my friend … truly a joy to peruse. ;DMay 24, 2021 at 11:19 pm #58514
Ann, such a fun page this wood duck one. Terrific work on the outer frame, love it. Plus … really cool avatar my friend, love it too! ;DMay 24, 2021 at 11:27 pm #58516
Okay … this is my take on the scavenger hunt challenge. At the same time I am creating a page for the sketch challenge so I used the same template. Took a long time to create this one…… I created the diamond pattern and then used it in the title. The journaling strips tell the story of the Australian Christmas tree. I put the metal rings into/onto the twill tape. The straight pin is holding the twill tape to the page. Thanks for takin a peek my friends. ;D
P.S. I resized this for posting to 1600 x 800 so that the journaling strips would be easy to read but it is not showing that size here. I will split and post again later for those who would like the information.May 24, 2021 at 11:41 pm #58520May 25, 2021 at 12:13 am #58525
Annie, I believe you when you say it took a long time to create. The Journaling alone must have taken you ages. As there are several steps involved in creating each strip. It’s an incredible layout. So much detail. I had to zoom right in to appreciate all the details. Your Xmas trees don’t need to be decorated, mother nature worked her magic on the colour palette. A superb page.May 25, 2021 at 12:18 am #58526
Annie, my friend, thank you for your kind words on my pages.
Ann, I love the wood ducks, I’ve taken photos of them. They are so regal all dressed up in vibrant colours. You created as lovely page to showcase him.May 25, 2021 at 3:21 am #58527
Annie and Sue: Thank you for your kind words. My biggest problem with the scavenger hunt was the @!#$%& pin! 😉

Ann, I noticed that your pin resembled a six inch nail, which you hammered into the frame Lol, only teasing you. There is a tut in the creative scrap on how to create a pin. It’s an older tut. I created a few of them years ago using that tutorial. Which I use regularly in projects.May 25, 2021 at 7:52 am #58531
Sue: 😀 Yes, that pin was in my stash from that tut but somehow it didn’t work right. Wasn’t sharp enough to penetrate the wood – I guess I really could have used a nail! 😉

Ha, right, I’m pleased you were aware of that tutorial. I’ve found that some of the settings may vary from the older tuts, when using much newer versions of psp.May 25, 2021 at 2:54 pm #58538
Annie, I love your Chrismas tree and I admire the amount of work it costed you to make this!!!
Sue, as always lovely and delicate. Your robin looks quite different from ours, althought both have a red front.
Ann, nice duck, I have seen some of those overhere too.May 25, 2021 at 3:28 pm #58539
Corrie, thank you ever so much for your complimentary comment. The North American Robin was named so, because they resemble the European Robin. They both have red breasts, and delightful song, but that is the only similarities to each other. The Robins here are related to the Thrush family, (same size as the European blackbird) whereas the little Robin red breast as they care commonly known as at home is related to the old world Flycatcher family. I’m awaiting your scavenger hunt page to be posted. 🙂May 25, 2021 at 6:48 pm #58544
Been working in the garden so computer time is limited but I finally put the two together and came up with this for the scavenger Hunt.
As usual , everyone is doing a stellar job on this challenge. So much great information put into stunning arrangements. Thanks to all.May 26, 2021 at 12:44 am #58552
LOL! You just crack me up Ann … love it. That pin is a pain especially when tapering it to a point with the pick tool. Like Sue, I created a template which I am able to fall back on whenever I need.May 26, 2021 at 2:46 am #58554
Corrie and Sue, thank you very much dear friends for your lovely compliments, much appreciated. 😉May 26, 2021 at 2:52 am #58555
Lynda well done my friend and it is a wonderful tribute to your garden! 😉May 26, 2021 at 11:22 am #58565Bonnie BallentineParticipant
Template R from Inspiration here in the Campus…lots of changes. I did create the twill ribbon and journaling strip…only one strip. The ring and straight pin are from Pixel Scrapper. The diamonds are from cleanpng.
The Mountain Laurel here is absolutely amazing this year. Some bushes are 12-15 feet tall…and covered in blossoms. We haven’t had Mountain Laurel like this in years!May 26, 2021 at 6:52 pm #58576
Bonnie, I’ve never seen Mountain Laurel. It is quite fascinating. I will be looking out for it in our travels. ThanksMay 26, 2021 at 7:54 pm #58579
This page is not overstated in any way which allows the Mountain Laurel to hit the viewer at full force. What beautiful flora Bonnie and I am very thrilled that something good has come out of 2021! Thanks for the info my friend, enjoyed perusing. ;DMay 27, 2021 at 3:56 pm #58604
In the end I got there, so here is my scavanger hunt. It took a little bit more time then I anticipated because I spent 2 whole evenings on video calls with my daughter and the grandchildren in America! The time difference is 9 hours and the evening is the best time for such calls and that has priority!!!! I have deviated from my flowers to grasses, also in bloom. All the 5 elements are present and I gave the out of bonds technic a try. The green background is also a photo of grass with a heavy blur and a blend mode. And I scattered some seeds.May 27, 2021 at 4:02 pm #58605
Lynda, when I see your vegetable garden I envy you, but only a little bit. Years ago we had one too, but the work became a bit to much for my husband (and for me on my own). Since then we have moved house but I still miss it sometimes. I hope it will give you a nice harvest.
