Tagged: What are you working on in April

It is a new month and new projects.
Show off what you are working on in April, be it a scrapbook page, a collage, a tutorial, or anything else you want.
We are curious and want to see, learn, and get inspired.
These threads are quickly becoming a fantastic source of inspiration, support, and friendship. Keep them coming!
Remember to size down your image to about 600×600 pixels and save in jpg format before posting it.
Here are a few guidelines for everyone:
April 1, 2022 at 10:11 pm #74697
- when you post a project, give as much information on your sources or techniques used. It will help others who are curious and would like to do the same.
- if someone uses something that you like on their page, ask where they got it. Sometimes, you can go get it too and it will be better quality than trying to extract it (as it would have been resized to post in the forum anyways).
- if it is something that they did from scratch, ask how they did it. It would be so helpful to everyone!
- if you like a photo and would like to “play with it”, ALWAYS ask permission. Sometimes, there are some limitations and the person is not allowed to let others use it. Don’t get them in trouble. Usually, people are happy to say yes (if they can) when you ask politely. And if you get permission, you might get a better quality image than the resized image anyways.
This layout is for the scraplift challenge april 2022 but I can’t find the forum so I’m posting it here. Pirkko did a beautiful layout for the March Template Workshop and inspired me to play with the kaleidoscope and create some patterns from the most colorful pic in this layout. Pirkko also took some of the kaleidoscope pattern to make an element and I tried to do the same. That was such a cool idea, Pirkko!
I researched how to make a gradient from a picture and so the gradient paper is mine, the kaleidoscope paper at the background is mine and so are the elements I gathered from the pattern. I also played with the hue map which you told us about in the last workshop, Carole. It is not simple, but now I know how to play with it. Don’t remember what font I used for the title, but I inner beveled it as well as giving it a shadow.April 1, 2022 at 11:22 pm #74707
Free template from Tinci designs…of course, I changed some things.
My friend gained the trust of “Mamma Raccoon”. As you can see, Mamma Raccoon would take a vanilla from my friend’s hand. I love wildlife but I am not sure I would want Mamma’s mouth so close to my hand.April 2, 2022 at 7:45 am #74711
Time for my April Big Cat Calendar. I used one of the lions from my template workshop. All the big cat photos I use are from a calendar my daughter gave me. I used the photo to make a kaleidoscope background. I re-colored the calendar graphic and added a white border and then applied inner bevel.

I need a new Facebook header, so I used the template Carole gave us on Day 1 and created one for Ukraine.April 3, 2022 at 8:20 pm #74815April 3, 2022 at 9:50 pm #74818
Lab 7 Mod 9. Create confetti, marker, stripe paper (different than before!). All created and displayed. Font is Ambrogio for the title and Arial Rounded MT Bold for the journaling. Papers and elements are my own.April 3, 2022 at 9:54 pm #74829
And earlier today I was just playing around with the Effects>Reflection Effects>Pattern (and Kaleidoscope). Here are some of the results. All from using one square!

Wow Mary, they are wildly different. Hard to imagine them coming from one square. Ann, that is a beautiful FB header.April 4, 2022 at 2:15 am #74844MicheleParticipant
I know I haven’t shared anything in a while. I’ve been in a slump and the game has been repeating themes from 2015. So I’ve pretty much been reusing my old pics. (For any newbies, I have a gaming group on FB and the game gives us a new theme every day.) Anyway, here’s a new one: I included the original illustration by Bec Winnel. The lens distortion effect is one I’ve never used so I had fun playing around with it. Any and all constructive comments are always welcome.April 4, 2022 at 2:21 am #74845MicheleParticipant
I’ve been following along with the blog and I’m enjoying everyone’s projects.
Marie-Claire, I’ve never made my own flair button, but after seeing how pretty yours is, I’m going to have to start.
Mary, I love playing around with the kaleidoscope tool. It’s like Forrest Gump’s mom said, “You never know what you’re going to get.” When I find one I really like, I save it. It’s wonderful to see the same effect on different pics.April 4, 2022 at 10:33 am #74852
Michel, thank you, it is really fun to do, I am going to making more.
Nice result with the lens distortion effect.
Mary, so many different results from the same square, it is indeed always a surprise to get a different result each timeApril 4, 2022 at 10:35 am #74853
Ann, beautiful FB header !
Trish, nice effect with the water above de frameApril 4, 2022 at 11:47 am #74854
Thank you, Susan and Marie-Claire for your kind words. You guys make my day! 🙂April 4, 2022 at 12:52 pm #74855Susan EwartParticipant

I used one scrap-page by background – almost every detal are made from photo of rabbit (by me) and the embellishments are from pixel-scrapper
the words (in Finnish) are from an old children’s song. It tells of a hare that became sick and the the kids wonder why it didn’t jump anymore

OK! Lab 7 Mod 10. Make a line pattern (overlay on the background); compass points (also made the compass and put the points in it); wavy paint splashes (ended up with 2); the anchor I attempted but ended up with a freebie from NicePng. I got stuck and couldn’t go any further; so Laurie helped with my perspective and pushed me beyond pause.April 6, 2022 at 4:46 pm #74928
Going through all of the scripts in preparation for the Big Birthday Bash and started fooling around with some of the scripts I have. Everything here is made from scratch except the flower corners which were created with Carole’s folded flower 1 script. Again, the photos are mine.April 6, 2022 at 5:02 pm #74942
SPLIT PHOTO2 TEMPLATE – Using the April Siblings Theme, these are my daughters. Font is Snap. I made the plaid. Someone in the family took this photo.April 7, 2022 at 4:43 pm #74964April 7, 2022 at 4:59 pm #74966
