    day 3, of the Boot-camp.
    here my grandson is still a tiny boy, but now he is 21 and taller than me.
    A few secs after this photo was taken lots of birds came to him. On his head and arms.
    They were fighting for a grain of corn. The boy did not like that at all.
    He felt attacked by the birds and cried out loud.

    Just finished my workout and I need PROTEIN!  So off with the carbs and on (the plate) with the meat!  ‘Cause baloney is a good clean protein, right?🤣  That’s my story.  I bought new dishes this year  and some complementary cutlery.  Now I better go and eat…I am like a bear out of hibernation after a workout.

    Hi everyone, sorry to be late in joining. Am loving the sandwiches and tables already. I’ve done bootcamp before but am already shocked at what I’ve forgotten so glad to be here.

    Well here is my Project 1 attempt. I am not the most creative I know…..

    Anyway here is another picture of Kiah which was taken when I first got a DSLR camera. My daughter held her around the corner until I was ready with the camera and being a Shepherd dog she hates being separated and hence came dashing round when released. One of my favourite pics.Kiah in woods

    Slightly late but here is my sandwich, cheese and onion as always the staple of my sandwich, decided to go for some chintz up tableware too, used drop shadows and inner bevel to define the shape of the tableware

    It’s a lot of stars but I got inspired after seeing the awesome (and humbling) pictures from the new James Webb telescope.

    So here is my layout, I have gone for greens and leaves to complement the natural setting. I used papers and flairs and bits of writing that I have collected over the years.

    Suzy (#79067), you don’t need a saucer under your cup? How did you upload the image? If you use the Upload Image button at the bottom, it should post a smaller version of the image in the post, which can be enlarged by clicking on it. It seems like you might have embedded it instead?

    Ann (#79070), I think we have solved the issue, correct? (#79095) Good work now.

    Jannette (#79072), yes, that drag and drop is often new to PSP users! I see you used a small plate. I guess it is just a snack? 🙂 (#79099) I suspect that you added a shadow with no horizontal offset or with a large blur as it appears on both sides of the papers. Can you check that? Having a shadow on the bottom-right only will give more of a 3D effect to the page.

    Kasany (#79090) an open sandwich is always a good option!

    Susan (#79112) it looks like you are getting ready to make sandwiches for everybody! That was a lot of layers to practice with!

    Sharla (#79114), welcome back. It looks like you are having a salad with bread on the side. Why not?

    Andrew (#79119), creativity will come when you get comfortable with the program and all the tools. Then, you won’t have to think about the techniques and the commands all the time. That is a great photo and you really show a nice 3D effect with the shadows on the papers. I think you might have forgotten it on the photo. Is that possible?

    Harmony (#79149), is that swiss cheese that you added? You have nice tableware! I hope it is a set of 12 at least so you can get company. (#79163) This is a beautiful layout. Out of curiosity, what does BR22 stand for? I assume it is a TV show?

    Gerry (#79162), that is a beautiful paper! May I ask where you got that?

    If you have not posted your first project yet, don’t worry. You will have time tomorrow as the next project won’t be until Friday only.

    Yes, you are both right, Ann and Carole. I used the picture of the mountain in the icons above the message — that’s what I’ve always used!

    Here is my homework. I wasn’t able to listen to the entire lesson, so I sort of guessed on some of it by looking at the end.

    A free kit from Lynn Grieveson at The-LilyPad for getting on her mailing list. The offer is still good.

    Carole, no, no saucer. It looked like a mug to me with that heavy handle, not a tea cup.

    I am not happy with this so far. I downloaded a sports kit from pixelscrapper, and most of the elements are from that kit. The picture is of my grandson who had the opportunity to play rugby in Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam before covid. The grass is from Filter Forge. One reason that I don’t like this page is because I could not find a way to replace the black with brighter colors. Is this normal for kits?

    BR 22 is Beyond Ragnarok 2022, Beyond Ragnarok is a LARP (Live Action Roleplay) that I go to.

    And yes Swiss cheese, wanted to do a cheese that I would eat

    I think I posted my recent comment on the wrong site.  This is just to say that although I am reading all the entries I cannot contribute at the moment as i have family staying with me (two adults and two children) and I have to spend free time with them.  It isn’t possible, nor would I want, to spend time alone in my office when there is a chance of being with family who live far away from me.  I’ll catch up later, I hope, but it may take me a long time to reach your level.

    Carole – The background paper and star scatters came from a kit called All the Star by Scrapvine. The stripe is from the free bundle that Creative Fabrica is offering now. It is in the Purple Ombre group.

    I think it originally came from Digital Scrapbook (Pixelscrapper), but it is not there now. However, I found it at Scrapvine.com which had several nice kits available for free.

    My entry for Bootcamp: Day 3 – Cherry Shrimp aka Crustaceans in my Aquarium. (Not for human consumption 😉 )

    The title font is Bodoni MT Poster Compressed. The background photo is my aquarium with the highlighted photo of one of my Cherry Shrimp. I also have some Orange Sunkist Shrimp and I still have my Nerite Snail named Roomba. I haven’t named the shrimp as I plan on slowly adding more. They do better in groups.

    Love all the different pages that are being created. I’ve used one of my photos of Durham Cathedral with papers from various kits and a scatter from a Gina Jones Nov 2021 kit.

    Day 3 Project 1 in the bag…or the t-cup in this case.  Papers from Digital Scrapbook, dandelion line art from Creative Fabrica (changed color by locking the transparency), font is Curlz not sure if that’s a windows one or not.  Photo is mine and I extracted the t-cup and added a white border.  I used a thicker shadow on this as the white border looks like part of the saucer, so I added the shadow as if it was a thicker element.

    Carole, when I first extracted (t-cup was shot on white background for this purpose) the t-cup image, I used a selection set to circle.  then I cut and pasted to my blank canvas.  when I went to flood filled the canvas’ bottom layer it left the t-cup impression transparent. the t-cup layer was just above that layer.  Is it because the image itself is a background layer and I should have first promoted the background layer.  I think I did something like that trying to figure out why I couldn’t flood fill that whole layer.  But in clicking (and undoing) many buttons I don’t know how I did it.

    Susan Ewart: That’s very pretty! Let’s have tea, or coffee or wine! 😉 I hear ya’ about the flood fill missing the elements if you’re filling a layer on the bottom. I noticed that and now I just move the layer to the top, temporarily, fill and then slide it back down. Maybe locking transparency would help? IDK – This didn’t seem to happen with previous versions of PSP.

    Susan Ewart: Thank you for the information about locking transparency to change the color. I was able to make the page more to my liking.

    Suzy (#79166), what book of the Dummies series is that? You manage well to complete the project if you didn’t watch the whole lesson!

    Pirkko (#79169) great page. Although it was not mentioned to use a photo as a background, but it does work very well!

    Donna (#79173), I see that you got some answers from Susan. For anyone else looking for a way to change the color of some frames or wordart, HERE is a tutorial for it.

    Harmony (#79192) I had never heard of BR22. Something else we learn in this forum 🙂

    Ann (#79196) “not for human consumption” made me smile!

    Sharla (#79214), simple yet effective. And your use of the shadows is all perfect.

    Allen (#79250), such cuties. I think you could give your project even more volume by adding some drop shadows.

    Lisa (#79253) I love that photo showcasing your dog. Just a suggestion for “realism”: it might be interesting to have the seashell on top of the photo instead of one corner of the photo on top of it.

    Susan (#79261) you used the shadows very creatively and correctly to give that thickness effect. To answer your question, when you fill the layer, make sure that the “Use all layers” is not checked.

    Tomorrow, you will get another lesson for another project. If you have not submitted your Project 1, don’t worry, you can still submit it later. And if you are stuck, just ask. We have veteran members ready to help if I am not around.

    Thank you Ann.  Let’s do that tea, coffee, or wine (or all three!) at your place.  We can sit and watch the cool birdie visitors you get, while dining on shrimp😜.  Kidding of course, I don’t make a habit of eating my friends pets.   I’m glad I’m not alone in that weird transparency issue.  Here I am thinking I’m rockin’ this PSP program and then that happens and I’m all humbled again.

    Thank you Carole, I will look for that box. That might be a question for the Q&A.  How does one know when to “use” all layers or uncheck and “not” use all layers?

    Hi, Cassel,

    It is the “Hawaii for Dummies ” book. But the pic was taken in my kitchen as she was reading about Hawaii…with my old hat on her head, LOL!   I forgot the fifth heart, though, the one that was to go under the photo.  I might go back and put it on there because it’s missing something.
