      This challenge has had great success in the past so we can continue to have it on a regular basis, don’t you think?

      Just like those “some assembly required” kits that you can buy for a shelf, a chair, or a picnic table, I am including a 3600×3600 pixels canvas with some shapes.

      You HAVE to use the shapes in the size and proportions they are. You can move them, rotate them, flip them, and rearrange the layering if you want but you cannot resize them.

      You need to use ALL the pieces but you can add more if you want.

      So it is like all the pieces to build a DIY shelf: you cannot change the size of the pieces but you can use them creatively.

      Obviously, you will want to recolor them or replace them with papers, photos, etc. We just need to be able to recognize the initial shapes.

      Here is a preview of the shapes involved. Since it has so many pieces, you are likely to have to do some layering. 🙂

        It’s all about Lucy

        I used Carole’s cliptoit script for the photos and her LinePainting script for the background. Didn’t really know what to do with the two square shapes so I just filled them with grass.. The dog dish and Lucy button are generated with CF Spark.

              Here is my result

              We here in Finland are worried about the Corona situation

              I got the idea for the paper and decorations from Digitalscrapbook.com

                ENCHANTED FOREST - DIY CHALLENGEA Halloween party in Mendocino, CA. Daughter Deb sent these photos but no explanation yet. I used the campfire photo enlarged for my background also. All the embellishments are from the IN THE MOONLIGHT mega kit from Digitalscrapbook.com

                          Pirkko, the Corona virus ran thru our States for at least 2 years. Took many lives. Things have really slowed down, thankfully.

                           

                          Ann, your page is wicked cool.

                          Enjoyed seeing everyone’s “babies”.

                            I thought I had posted this…guess not…When I tried to upload image, I discovered I had completed the project but not saved as a jpeg and resized. Oh my, what’s an old woman to do?!

                                Thanks Julie, Lucy is our baby girl no matter how old she gets and hopefully she will be with us awhile longer. She is doing pretty well for a 14 year old ,90 pound dog.

                                    Really pretty Trish. I’ve got that song stuck in my head, lol. Wasn’t that an Elvis song?

                                      Tee, yes it was -is, it’s one of my favorites, although I don’t think there is any Elvis record that isn’t, there something for every mood.

                                      Sue when you take those pictures of the moon,  I always wonder why there are never any stars or do you take them out, I love pictures of all the stars and am completely ignorant but is in nebulas, I collect pictures taken from the Hubble telescope and use them as backing papers.  My husband had a delivery to the space station in Cornwall, my son I lost was with him and they gave him a tour he was in ore.  Do you know the answer to this, once on holiday in a log cabin in the Smokies, one evening a large bright green ball flew across the tree tops , we were on a mountain, so it was across my vision, it has always puzzled me.

                                      Ann please you are please with the bauble, did you get the papers as well, like the way you changed the colour

                                      Cindy, did you get the snow, did it work.

                                      Merry Christmas everyone xxx

                                            Love your Blue Christmas and who doesn’t love Elvis

                                            One more thing, I know you were asking Sue but I don’t see a reply. When the telephoto has to go out far enough and has to focus on that big light everything else goes black. I’m sure Sue has a better understanding but that is my experience.

                                              Trish, it would appear I have missed a question from you, and no doubt others over time. Please repeat it, and if I can I will answer it. Sometimes there are lots of comments and pages submitted in a very short time frame. I tend to not back track, but view and read the most recent, unless I have lots oftime available.

                                                OK Trish, It would also appear that I completely missed this  November DIY challenge.  I scrolled back and found your comment.  In answer to your question, it’s simply because the stars are to faint to show up in moon shots.  With the settings used to take shots of the moon.  Planets on the other hand are much  bigger and closer, like Mars showing up in my latest moon pics.  Even then Mars was rather faint in all but one of them.

                                                To elaborate more, the brightness of the moon determines my shutter speed and  F stop, in order  to not overexpose the moon.  Hence using the setting I do, means that the stars don’t show up.

                                                To shoot stars as pin points I will need to use as wide an F stop as my camera will allow, in my case it is F2.8 , with  a very low shutter speed,  around 20, or less seconds, in manual mode.     For moon shots, I use F4.5, which is my camera’s sweet spot , aperture mode, and shutter speeds of 1,000-1,3000. Along with other settings.

                                                  Gobble dee gook to me, I just wondered why stars dont show , I thought there must be a few between us and the moon, although stand to be corrected on that one. you never see them on space flights either do we. No answer to my green ball then, perhaps it was a UFO . thats is something I would love the answer too. xx

                                                    As for your green ball, the only thing I can think of is if you took the photo through a window, it could be a flare of light, or some other light source which the camera picked up, if the shot was taken outside. If you don’t use a camera hood, as the camera hood reduces flare.

                                                      Actually, I once saw a meteor come through the atmosphere and it was a green light (not a UFO). I was coming home about 10pm from a birthday party with my granddaughter.

                                                        Mary, meteors are not green, they are bright and white. Asteroids contain nickel and iron, and they burn very hot, traveling at vast speeds, radiating green light. I often witness a meteor shower, as my night sky almanac will give me the date, time and direction to view them.
                                                        Meteors are also called shooting stars.

                                                          Hi Sue, thanks for the reply, I wish I had a camera with me at the time although it was so quick and fast, I wouldn’t have time to take the shot, let alone blink, I was outside on the decking,I was just admiring the view, it just came out from the mountain across the way, dipped across the valley below, across the redwood tree tops, and out of view as it went behind another mountain into the trees. Guess it will always be a mystery, I just wondered if it was something that happens over there, a military thing, or perhaps a super fast weather balloon. Just something that those that watch the skies may have seen xxx
