Do you have old frames at home? Do you have artwork or craft that you have framed? Did you ever use picture frames and repurposed them to something else? Show off what you have.
Let’s go!May 5, 2021 at 7:13 pm #57662
Hi friends, My daughters scrap book is coming together. These 2 pages, were actually done following tutorials from the double take. So in page No 1, which is on the right I thought the element pages would be appropriate frames for the primary school theme, and in page No 2 on the left High School theme, I have created the frames myself using a gradient for the colour. Not very adventurous, but effective enough I think for the purpose.May 6, 2021 at 4:25 am #57670MicheleParticipant
You did a great job, Shirley! She’s going to love them.May 6, 2021 at 7:57 pm #57677
Thanks MicheleMay 7, 2021 at 6:28 pm #57687
I’m not quite certain what we are supposed to be making or sending here … but this was an old frame I made years ago … but when I made it – it was tiny. Well … repurposed a bit … resized in AI, played with a graphic I like from online as it looks like my great niece, used a lino bg we learned how to do right here and loads of colors and well, this was my result. I wanted a sort of extra bright but not quite neon effect. I think this was about as close as I was going to get. Anyway, I was tired of sitting in this chair. LOL I might play with it a bit more later. The bows of course were from “the big sale” and made from the graphic itself. Seems we all LOVED the big sale!May 8, 2021 at 5:12 am #57702MicheleParticipant
No need to tweak it at all, Minka. I think it’s perfect the way it is!May 8, 2021 at 7:11 am #57707CristinaParticipant
Shirley and Minka, really nice and lovely layouts. Great work, ladies!May 8, 2021 at 7:29 am #57709
Thank you, Michele and Cristina. 🙂 Going to try a different one and maybe use more of those toys we all bought. You know what they say … Practice practice practice. No wait, is that only in music? Works in real life, too, I’m guessing.May 8, 2021 at 5:15 pm #57735
Wow, Shirley and Minka…you are setting the bar high! Beautiful work!
Betty’s 91st birthday! I created a layout for her 89th and 90th also (in the appropriate year). The birthday balloon created a lot of interest. Many strangers came to our table to wish Betty a happy birthday. The lady in blue came over and asked if she could sing Happy Birthday to Betty. She has a beautiful voice. Her nephew is in the background and he joined in…another beautiful voice. Template from the August, 2020 A Love For Layout Templates blog train.

Bonnie … just love it. Loved every darn thing about all of them. A lady 91 that looks THAT GOOD, you know she is doing something RIGHT! Loved the friendship sentiment on the blue one, too! You always inspire with your PP “PickleballPosts”!May 8, 2021 at 9:50 pm #57749
Thank you, Minka. Betty is a special friend! Judy, subject of the blue page, and Michelle, subject of the brown page, are special friends and pickleball friends.May 9, 2021 at 10:48 pm #57811Diana Craft
Many years ago when I first had PSP 7 and was learning how to use layers, I had a website called, “Thru My Cottage Window I See…” and I made a banner something like the cottage window shown below. The original is long gone, lost in an early hard drive crash from before I learned to back everything up. I’ve done my best to replicate that image using an image that was very like the early one. Using my selection tool I erased the original view shown in the window and saved the image-less window as a .pfr file that, unfortunately, will not display here. I also saved the bare window as a tube (although a rather large one) which I do not believe will show here either, so you if you will imagine the window with the view transparent where you can add any image you’d like to see beyond your desk in the early morning as you write your letters to family and friends just by adding an image as a separate layer, resizing appropriately, sending to the bottom and then merging visibly. I‘ve shown both a cottage and a seaside view, I hope you like them.
If anyone would like a copy of the tube or .psp file just let me know.May 10, 2021 at 2:33 am #57818
Beautiful Shirley, and the photos are lovely … rather nostalgic really. Enjoyed perusing my friend, thank you. 😀May 10, 2021 at 2:41 am #57820
I wasn’t sure where to go with this theme as I do not use frames … as you are probably aware. I decided to give Cassel’s Fanned photo script a go after I had framed the Eastern Ground Parrot with a frame I had made eons ago. The layout is one I also created a while ago and all papers are my own creation. The knots are the result of Cassels Knot 15 script and the flowers, moon and stars are tubes I have had for some time and I am not too sure about the arrow … I think I made it myself. Thanks for taking a peek my friends. 😀May 10, 2021 at 5:13 am #57825
Cristina Minka Bonnie, and Annie, thanks for your kind remarks. Annie and Bonnie, neat idea for the frames.May 15, 2021 at 11:31 pm #57739

It was rather late last night when I found this challenge. I made a start last night, finishing it off this morning. Lots of really lovely interpretations of frames. I have also learnt that there are so many different frames to be had. Mind boggling actually. I went a bit over board on the main frame. I added a few extra borders. For the largest border I used paste into selection the photo after I edited it, as you see it in the frame. I darkened it a little then using effects, tiles. I used the random tool until I found something I could work with. Using the triangle, and editing the settings I came up with this. I wasn’t happy with the black rectangles, therefor I selected them using the magic want and flood filled with the gold. Now then, there are a few spots on the right side, that didn’t change to gold. I tried several things, even used the lock transparency and brushed over it several times, to no avail. I closed the page and reopened it, and still nothing. I could try this option as I flood filled with gold on a new layer. Anyway, having the odd spot not filled gives it a little character. I used the bracket technique for the text frame, and Cassel’s custom brad. Also did chisel frames around the background paper. A little OD’d on the frames!May 16, 2021 at 3:04 pm #58088
I have included the original which I used.May 16, 2021 at 3:05 pm #58089
Annie, I have Cassel’s fanned photo script. I’ve had it year’s, and still use it.May 16, 2021 at 3:33 pm #58091Ann SeeberParticipant

I love everything about the work you have put into this and you are right the few little black specks lend some character to the frame. It is beautiful my friend … and let me just say … I prefer the black frame, jus sayin! Luv ya to bits Suze so don’t make me sit in the corner ok … besides I would never be able to get up again, lol! ;DMay 17, 2021 at 2:34 am #58187
What a beautiful neck of the woods you live in Ann. The photo is truly delightful and I am envious because we are back to dust bowls here in Bundaberg. Very little grass and limits on watering … only positive note … ya don’t have to mow! ;DMay 17, 2021 at 9:07 am #58195
Annie, don’t panic I won’t send you to Coventry my friend! I actually agree with you, I prefer the black. Seeing as it was a frame challenge. I don’t usually create such ornate frames, therefore by adding the gold guild I went over board. It just goes to show that there aren’t any limits as to what can be achieved in psp.May 17, 2021 at 6:28 pm #58201
That is for sure dear Sue … and thanks for the reprieve! ;DMay 18, 2021 at 8:16 pm #58236Sheila HoggParticipant
Fabulous artwork here Ladies. You have all been so busy.
I have been watching the late Bob Ross shows on You Tube and sad to think this lovely, talented man left this world some time ago now. His working left me mesmorised and what he achieved with a palette knife and few brushes never ceases to amaze me. Then I got to thinking, dangerous I know but I considered that this could be done with PSP and not one messy brush or clothes would be in sight. So, I tried to remember how he did things and came up with my painting. After I had completed my masterpiece, it needed a frame, which fitted in with this months theme. So, I added different size borders, filled and bevelled them before adding a corner tube, a plugin Simple top left mirror to make it look posher. Was really good fun and think I might be going to have another go and watch more of the lovely Bob Ross. TFL.May 19, 2021 at 11:04 pm #58271
Sheila, you have been a hidden talent my friend. I love what you have done and the frame is delightful. Well done Hon. 😀May 20, 2021 at 4:35 pm #58299
The frame in this page is the lines of a pickleball court. Irina is one of my favorite women pros. I had the pleasure of taking a private lesson from her. None of these photos are mine. I snagged them from the web. They were all taken at the US Open.May 20, 2021 at 6:03 pm #58306Sheila HoggParticipant
Ah, thankyou Annie.
