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

    We want to know who else will be there, on our side to cheer everyone up.

    Everyone started as a beginner, so don’t ever compare yourself to others. You will learn one tool at the time, one concept at the time and you will create one project at the time. Everyone will have different photos and possibly different supplies so every project will be different.

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

    Remember to resize your image to about 600 pixels before uploading it so it won’t slow down the site when we have lots of your masterpieces. Try to follow the tutorials at least enough that we can recognize what lesson you completed.

    Now, let’s get ready !

    If you missed the registration link or if you found this thread before I announce it (some people are very observant), HERE it is. Share it around if you want.

    Although this bootcamp is mostly meant to help beginners, we won’t exclude anyone for “excess experience”. Some participants are back for a second round. You are always welcome. Remember that it will be the exact same tutorials so don’t be surprised. I am sure you will now do something slightly different than the previous time.

    Since anyone can follow the whole bootcamp using the trial version of PaintShop Pro, this is a perfect opportunity for anyone to give it a try and see how they like the program, so share with your friends who MIGHT consider using PaintShop Pro.

    I’m here to learn.   I have used PSP for eons yet have been away from creating elements for many years.  I want to re-learn all those techniques and more.   Thanks for the Opportunity.

    I have set up my workspace the same as in the video and my background color is now light gray.  I am using PaintShop Pro 2019.

    Hello,  I am anxious to see how I do with this bootcamp.  I failed terribly with the last one.  I hope to do better.

    Happy to be here again, I was a late starter with the double take and  I found it very challenging and I had big issues so I hope to do much better in this one although I am out of town helping a friend  with a house shift and not in my own environment. However I am looking forward to it and many thanks to Cassel for her time and patience.

    Thank you for the Bootcamp!

    I have been using PaintShop Pro for years, I think PaintShop Pro 5 was the first version I used.  I recently updated Corel PaintShop Pro X9 to PaintShop Pro 2019.

    I prefer the medium gray workspace with a white background.  I have kept all the palettes/toolbars open, with the exception of the the learning center.

    Hi here is my day 1  September boot camp project. It is pretty basic unfortunately with no frills.  Hopefully I will become more adventurous in the coming days.

    Hi from the Bronx, NY.  I have been using PSP since version 7, but I didn’t quite know what to do outside of what I taught myself.  Layers were a mystery back then.  I can’t tell you how many docs I lost by flattening. I have since learned that CTRL-Z is your friend.  LOL, well, this may be the first challenge that I have completed.  Oops, did I say that. Have to play catch up on Friday as I have a speech to give Thursday.

    Hello campus from Marseille, France. See you soon. Greetings.

    P.S. I improved the sandwich with the tubes of Cassel’s Hamburger, Pizza and Burger Toppings scripts except for the processed cheese which is a simple rectangle. The bread was made with the Bread2 script.

    Hi Everyone. This is my 4th time participating in this challenge. And every time is an opportunity to practice different techniques and Cassels‘s great tutorials.

    For this exercise, I chose the following tutorials: Gingham Pattern; Frayed Edges2; Twisted String and  Rust Texture. Like Mireille, I also used Burger Toppings Picture Tube and added Cassel’s Beads Art-Caterpillar freebie (Beads-Art Script).

    Hi, Here is my day 3 project.  This is my youngest Great Grandson, now 9 yrs.  I thought it was a cute photo to work on.

    Kim and Shirley, simple is quite ok as long as you have a chance to practice those layers commands and get to understand how they work. Layers are such an essential part of manipulating images, scrapbook pages, and other projects. Without layers, you would just be painting, which is so much more limiting with such a powerful program.

    Ken, welcome to the bootcamp.

    Mireille and Cristina, I have to say that I did consider using those toppings too in the exercise file, but I decided to keep the file exactly as in the video, but yes, it looks delicious! For anyone looking at those projects, don’t think that you HAVE to make your sandwich this elaborate. Mireille and Cristina are long-time members AND have done this bootcamp more than once so they keep adding something new every time!

    Kim, good start. Did you add shadows to your elements? If you add shadows to a full-size project, you can be more “generous” with the settings, even if you are going to size it down later.

    Shirley, your first page is great and isn’t it nice to be able to showcase that precious photo in the process?

    Trish, great lunch you prepared! As for the supplies, it is ok if you use your own. I only suggest some in case someone does not have any.

    Mireille, is that you in the picture? or a relative?

    Here is day 3… one of my Grandsons making Cheesecake.  They live far away and we no longer travel so I follow through the pictures.   The papers and the elements are some I made in 2010 and saved.  Most of the ones I saved are on CD’s and I have to go find them.

    Bonjour Carole, non, j’ai oublié de préciser que c’était des images Unsplash : personnage, aigle et tas de pierres. Les autres éléments ont été réalisés par moi-même..

    I used shadows around the train tickets, but it did not really look that different, so I removed it.
