    First of all, come and say HI once you register for this workshop.

    We want to know who else will be there, on our side to encourage us.

    Every page we will make will be different, based on each others’ photos, stories, and preferences but we can all get inspired by everyone’s projects.

    Once the workshop is started, on May 16th, you can post your pages in here.

    Make sure to resize your image to 600 pixels before uploading it so it won’t slow down the site when we have all those pages.

    Remember that each page should not take you longer than 5 minutes to complete.

    (if you missed the registration link or if you want to invite a friend to join you, HERE it is).

    Who is going to be doing their FIRST digital scrapbook pages?

    I’m here too.  I’m not sure what pictures I’ll use, but I hope it will come to me when I need it to.😰

    I’ll use different photos – the first is Rio, who had to go to the dentist. Two teeth were completely removed from it – oh, my…

    I had this lone Chipping Sparrow looking for home and he’s found it on QP-1. He’s dressed up for a date!

    Ann that is a delightful sparrow.

    I found an old photo of a birthday cake to use.

    Rio was at the dentist. It had to have two teeth removed. There was too much hard moose for its old teeth. Oh no
    I used Layer Blend Mode to switch colors.

    OK – showing one of my favorite movies which was “The Princess Bride”.  In it they all had to climb the Cliff of Despair and when they reached the top all the real action began!  Well, when Laurie and I were on one of our road trips in northern California, I had to stop and take a picture of these rocks – it reminded me of the Cliff of Despair. So here it is!

    Here is my first quick page. This is my granddaughter when she was little, trying to figure out a kitestring.

    Pirkko, I’m curious, when you say  you used layers to change the colours,  did you mean adjustment layers?

    Here is my QP.  One is a photo that I played with in Filter Forge and the Blood Moon (which I didn’t get to see because it was overcast😥) is the Scrap Tutorial called Punched.  Only you can’t see the “Punched” effect because of reducing to 600×600.

    Mary, I love that movie too…ROUS’s.  they said there was no rats in Alberta and my husband saw one crossing in front of the car on day, so we called them ROUS’s because “there are no rats in Alberta” (how does a rat know where the borders are?)

    Pirkko.  I love the colors you changed it to.  I would love to know how to do that.  I was trying to change colors but I couldn’t figure out how.

    here is my extra
    He has no name yet – new member of my son’s family 🙂
    They found out about it last weekend. It is only 3.5 weeks old, so it is allowed to grow in the care of its mother for some time to come. It doesn’t even get its own paw off the couches 🙂

    Sue  I use the Blend Mode of layers – it offers interesting options

    Susan  you can find more information about Layer’s Blend Mode here:

    Pirkko, I’m sorry I misread, and misunderstood you. I don’t know what I was thinking at the time.  I use the blend modes a great deal.  Susan, the  blending through  masterclass, is a great class to watch, it will give you a  good understanding on how  to use the blend modes.

    QP1 This was from the last trip we made with Mother back to Arkansas where she was from. Luckily all four of her daughters were able to go.  The alpha I  used is “DC Patriotic Foil Balloon Alphabet” probably from Creativefabrica.

    QP-1 This is an Orchid Cactus bloom. I started the plant from a slip off of my husband’s grandmother’s plant that we estimated was about 100 years old. We waited many years to get the plant to bloom! It was worth the wait….

    Just getting started tonight with Quick Page #1. I used a photo of some of the tulips I planted last fall. They were beautiful when they bloomed. But it was short lived, they are all gone now, just 9 days later. Photo was taken May 8, 2022.

    Here’s my Day 2 layouts.  On the tackle box I changed the color with Hue/Saturation and got a color that match the shadows in the photo (enhance with Filter Forge).  Faded Memories was the same truck as Day 1, but this time made to look like an old yellowed photo (Filter forge again).  I turned Quick Page to greyscale, then negative image, hue/saturation, colorize and the bumped the contrast a bit and lowered the contrast on the truck to make it more old and faded looking.

    I got a weird message when I was saving about losing vector data.  I absolutely had it on save as PSPimage.  I duplicated the layout as back up insurance and then clicked okay on the original layout and it saved okay.  Two things I did was used the script “open as a copy” for the Quick Page and used the eraser tool on the vector (that I turned into a raster).

    Thank you Pirkko and Sue, I will look into that tutorial/masterclass.

    My opinion for Day 2 QP
    The water bird’s child is probably in the picture so I changed the color of the environment accordingly 🙂
    The photo is from here:

    Susan I really like the colour scheme with  the tackle box photo – it really works well. And, Pirkko you are right – the blues are a perfect fit for the baby bird.

    I’ve been unimaginative and simply added a photo.

    QP-2 – I tried a different approach this time. I left the QP alone, no color changes or embellishments and treated it as a frame to find the best photo to showcase. I ended up with a shot of my 5 gallon, heavily planted aquarium and my boy, Patriot, the Galaxy Koi Betta. It seemed to work with the layout. Nothing else added except his title.

    QP2-Extra – following the trend of finding the best photo for the existing layout, here’s a shot my friend Clay Olds sent me from Kenya. I think the colors POP! 😉

    Hi everyone!
    I always enjoy seeing what the other members are making, and there is always something I learn from
    These are the QP from day 1 and 2 and the extras
    The gray cat belongs to the neighbors who often visit us on our terrace, the other cat, I noticed in a field during a walk.
    The photo of day 1 is my daughter’s birthday when she turned 2.
    The butterfly is an old photo also taken during a walk.

    We have been living and traveling in our Motorhome this year. We are now in North Carolina on the coast. I am spotlighting a few of the picture I took yesterday on the beach! I have been admiring many of the quick pages in the forum! So, I took the opportunity to change my background color on the template with the color changer tool, and I added a title. I loved Pirkko’s baby duck, and Susan’s Tackle Box!
