    On a walk a couple of weeks ago I noticed something yellow at the border of a small parking lot and went to investigate. It was a Gorse (Gaspeldoorn) and due to the extremely mild winter we have, it was already in bloom! This plant has very sharp spiky leaves and needs  poor and dry soil. Without the bright yellow flowers it is nondescript.

    I used the Honeymoon template and made a background with to metallic papers from Inky Deals with different blendmodes, I tried until I got something that more or less resembles a parking surface. The font is Star Bright.

    Sue,

    Beautiful photography. You are very lucky to have these little critters around! Your layout and verse is also great.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    I was working on the latest lab and I put a photo of my mother and father’s wedding in the tattered frame. Besides following Carole’s instructions, I added a texture to the frame. I added another frame that I can’t remember where I got it or perhaps it’s a script.. if anyone knows where it came from, that would be nice! Used Carole’s clip to it script. (one of my favorites) added names and date.

    found this old mask frame this is a test run to see how many boxes it would and turned it into a layered template

    Our Weather Channels keeps saying snow is on it way, so inspired me to make  this one.  Started with 3 backdrop layers, each faded  and blended layered on a snow and icicle layers, added animals, a fence from stock and people. making them to scale Added more snow laayers and blended added glows to lights, and swatchs to accents to sky, snow and reflection from light, added texture and drop shadow

    Trish: That’s very beautiful! The only thing I’m not sure of is the lower left flowers being under the frame. Looks unnatural to me.

    It’s there because I forgot to cut the frame,  the flowers are on a background paper and I couldn’t be bothered to lift it as I did the top bunch, , Cutting the frame would have been the easiest but as I said, I forgot. Do you want to slap my wrist?.  it was just a quicky if you need to pick Ann I thought you would have said you couldn’t read the writing which is attached to the mask, Perhaps I should have picked the paper with the pink flowers then that would have solved that problem, or I could have erased it from the mask and wrote another on a new layer, but as I said it was a quicky, its a picture, I don’t presume to be a perfectionist, are you. Hope this answers the problem, I apologise if anyone else has a problem with this quicky picture.  LOL, it took longer to explain this to Ann than it did to make it.  I have answered your other question regarding your query about my use of a spoon on the other page, I thought that was common knowledge, but we learn something new every day.  Perhaps I might go back and pick up my mistakes at a later date Ann or perhaps you could try it and see if you can do it better.

    Trish: Don’t worry. It’s just a little inconsistency with your usually precise work. I’m learning a lot from your designs. Keep them coming!

    Trish, don’t be too hard on Ann for finding those details. I guess it means that I have taught you all quite well about realism (my fault), and I have to admit I still hit my head when I see details I forget. Often, I need a break to see those otherwise, I am just too close to my work to see the obvious. It is always easier to see those details with fresh eyes!

    I also wanted to say how much I love learning about other traditions. It is always so interesting to discover them. Maybe, someday, we can find a way to make scrapbook pages about our own local traditions. They seem so obvious (and ordinary) for us, but a delight to read for others.

    Sorry Carole, whenever Ann she speaks to me it is always a picky remark, I am sitting here in pain this morning, hands are shaking this was just a quicky to try to take my mind of it, I can always see errors in my work, but I do them for the enjoyment not for the perfection. I enjoy being told of errors, and suggestions it makes me better next time.  Was thinking of putting up that pipe mask for others to give it a try. What group do I post it on.

    Trish: I apologize if I sound “picky” with any of my suggestions. I shouldn’t be such a perfectionist about anyone else’s work but my own. I’m sorry. Thank you for the info on the spoon. I always like to read about traditions new to me. I do hope you get some relief for the pain you are enduring. That would stress me, also.

    Trish, if you want to share stuff, there is a section called Let’s Share. That is where you can put a link to a download file. You have to host it on your own (using Dropbox or GoogleDrive or something else) and then, members can click on the link to download it.

    For this I used Carole‘s Fanned Photo Template. The Wordart Sue Thomas shared, and my own photos.

    Color palette challenge.   I made a pattern from the colors and then used the kaleidascope tool on that to make the background.  The mushroom was an outline only that I downloaded sometime and I went from there with it.

    I got an offer to upgrade my Filter Forge to version 11 so I played a bit. Here is a Red-shouldered Hawk inside an oval frame using the new PSP frame tool and it also has FF’s snow overlay with a tree from my stash. The information is from Audubon.

    This was cor the Honeymoon challenge.  Our actually Honeymoon was very short, only 4 days, and was spent at my family’s fishing cabin on Table Rock Lake in the Ozarks.  This is actually from what we dreamed of doing for our Honeymoon, and actually where we were able to go for our 25th anniversary.  Dreams do sometimes come true, just not when we are dreaming them.  The photo is mine.  I used  “AZ-Layered-Floral-Alphabets-Big-Bundle-Graphics-22751382” that I had downloaded from Creative Fabrica.  The Plumeria  flowers were from “Plumeria-2-1803239″ also from C F.  I did not put a shadow on the text at the top because I didn’t like the way it looked and I tried several settings. I am happy with it and I guess that is what counts.    P S that alphabet bundle is now on sale for $3.00  ” https://www.creativefabrica.com/product/a-z-layered-floral-alphabets-big-bundle/

    Quick Page Workshop: Extra #1 – I located a photo of one of my local birds that I feed here. The House Finch has a drab name for a colorful bird. I call him my Red-headed Finch! I got the information from the Audubon Field Guide. The headline font is Foglihten No.07.
