Everyone has photos of sunsets. EVERYONE. Show us a project with those sunsets. Tell us where they were taken, what you were doing, who you were with. Tell us about that day, that week, that vacation. Let’s travel the world with you.
Let’s go!October 3, 2019 at 5:52 am #34908
On the Saskatchewan Prairies, there aren’t many mornings or evenings where the sky isn’t on fire. Further more all I have do is wrap up warm, and walk out the door to take shots.October 3, 2019 at 6:47 am #34912October 3, 2019 at 7:07 am #34913

Thank you Dawn. It’s quick and easy to create the perspective frames, making for a unique effect.

Another sunset scene, using my triple frame effect. Background paper created using the bokeh effect and a slight texture. The beads I created for another project, which I coloured to match this project.October 4, 2019 at 4:43 am #34921
I don’t know why the background paper has changed, everything else is as it should be. It’s as it should be on the Facebook page. Mind you it has happened before, unless it has something to do with the texture.October 4, 2019 at 6:27 am #34924
another beautiful sunset photo Sue !….. once again your created triple frame effect adds a wonderful viewing result… love it! …. your projects would make great cards!
best wishes and thanks for showing them in the forum as I don’t do Facebook.

Sue, your pages are wonderful, as always.
This is a pic I took many moons ago on Long Island, NY. Thanks to Sue I have a whole new way of presenting it. Thank you for your generosity and your inspiration. <3

Thank you ever so much Dawn and Michele. Your kind comments always mean a great deal to me. Dawn, I do make all my own greeting cards, and calendars. Here are a few which I don’t think I’ve posted here in the forum, but on Facebook.
Michele, this isn’t a criticism of your work, but had you centred the frames, you wouldn’t have had the steps on the horizon, instead the horizon would be completely horizontal. Still an awesome photo you took and layout. I love the way did the text.
Best wishes and happing PSPing

Dawn a Christmas card I made last year for a friend who lives in Cornwall, and who I visit when I’m home. Wild Dartmoor ponies on Dartmoor.October 4, 2019 at 5:23 pm #34939
Hello Sue, thanks so much for showing your cards… they are wonderful ! … love how you have used the corner punches on the the dove and robin cards. I have a love for those punches and find myself using them quite often on the cards I make. love the scattered floating feathers on the dove card … all beautifully done !… i am so impressed with your triple frame effect i think i will have to give that a try for my cards… if that is ok with you… thanks again for sharing the idea.
best wishes and i am sure anyone who receives your cards and calendars will enjoy displaying them.

Michele your sunset photo is lovely and you are right about how Sue’s triple frame effect gives a different way of presentation for a project.
Dawn.October 5, 2019 at 1:40 am #34949
By all means use the technique for your cards Dawn. I gave the instructions for all to use. This is a card I made quite some time ago, I may even have posted it on Facebook. The perspective technique is the same, with the exception of the way I did the borders, I used the buttonize tool, in the effects, 3D effects. Even if I say so myself, the card looked very 3D when printed.October 5, 2019 at 1:45 am #34950
Dawn The feather brushes I downloaded from https://myphotoshopbrushes.com/brushes/ All brushes are free.October 5, 2019 at 9:31 am #34955
Sue, I did center them, but I guess something went wrong. That’s one of the reasons I kept starting over from scratch. Maybe I scaled them incorrectly? Whatever it is, I’ll keep trying.
I love all of your work, as you already know. I think I’ve seen most of what you just posted except for that last one. It absolutely looks 3-D; an exceptional job.
You know, I can use all the techniques I learn, but I just don’t have the creativity to come up with many original ideas. I’ve always been more of a “mimic” in all things creative e.g. music, art, dance. I’m not complaining; just explaining. I always enjoy what I can do.
Dawn, since I know you’re not on Facebook, I’ll share a screenshot of the triple frame directions that Sue posted. If the screenshot is not clear enough, please let me know and I’ll email the instructions to you.October 5, 2019 at 11:46 am #34956
Just to help with legibility, I am copying here, the instructions from the Facebook post:
Here are the instructions for creating the triple framed project. If there’s something I haven’t explained properly let me know and I’ll try to elaborate. Choose a photo, Selection, select all. Selections, modify contract to personal choice. It will all depend on the size of your project. This applies to all settings.
Selections, invert. 3D effects, inner bevel. Bevel 7. In the tool bar on the left side choose the emboss brush. Hardness 50, size bigger than frame, everything else 100. Play with the blend mode, I like to use luminance on some projects. Using the alt key, click on the edge and then click on the opposite edge, until you have gone a round the frame. Select none. Paste as a new layer, increase canvas size. Duplicate framed photo, resize 75%, all layers unchecked.
Duplicate again if you want a triple frame.
It’s important that everything is aligned centre. Using the pick tool, set to perspective, adjust each framed photo. Remembering to align centre afterwards.
Finally use a drop shadow. Some photos are better suited for this type of framing. Wild Dartmoor ponies on Dartmoor, UK. A Xmas card I made last year for family living in Cornwall. I’m sure I posted it last year on here.October 5, 2019 at 1:06 pm #34958
Starting to work on 2020 calendar. This photo was taken at sunset, so thought it appropriate to add it to the sunset challenge. My resident coyotes. I have 2 packs that have dens in the horses field. A few years ago I stuck my head down one of the dens to listen for the pups, to my surprise I literally came nose to nose with the mother, who instantly retreated deep into the den. Our eyes met briefly, and she had the most beautiful soft kind eyes. By the following morning she had moved her litter. If only she realized that I didn’t pose a threat to her or her family.October 5, 2019 at 1:08 pm #34959
Sue and Michele, I already commented on FB, but I will do here again: your photos and layouts are beautiful! It’s really a joy to look at your work.
Sue, I also mentioned here somewhere, I love how you and Dawn use the corner punches. It is very creative!October 5, 2019 at 8:23 pm #34960
Michele and Sue, your work does justice to the beauty of the sunsets, well done to you both. 🙂October 5, 2019 at 10:28 pm #34963
Sue… Thank you for the link to the feather brushes. .. well done on the calendar page and the spring frame.. they look great!
Thank you Michele for the screenshot of the directions for Sue’s frame and also to Carole for the enlarged version. I appreciated it very much because as mentioned I don’t do Facebook and would not have been able to access the instructions.

Hello Happy Campus. This sunset photo was taken by Piotr Chrobot from Unsplash. It is a photo of the sunset reflected in one of the many canals in Amsterdam. Thanks for takin a peek!October 6, 2019 at 1:08 am #34966
hello Annie! a lovely photo from unsplash and a simple but very sweet presentation… like it very much!
best wishes ,

Sue, I figured out what the problem was. My horizon was not centered on the pic so centering the copies was not the right thing for me to do in this case. I moved them to line up with the horizon. I think it’s a definite improvement. I should start from scratch, but I’m too tired. Next project 🙂
Annie, I love your page and the text is great.
Sue, you should sell your calendars. And your experience with that mama coyote was one in a million.October 6, 2019 at 8:36 am #34972
I guessed that your layers weren’t centered, you won’t make that mistake again. 🙂 Thank you for you kind encouraging comments. I too love the flower corner punches, your card is absolutely delightful. I’m pleased you persisted with the frame project, it really does look fabulous!!! As for my calendars I don’t sell them but print and give them to family and friends as Xmas gift. Take care, and happy PSPing. xxOctober 6, 2019 at 12:17 pm #34973
