    Gradient background added 3 pictures of people of different ages in time on different layers, one has a texture, place a collage of roses on a different layer and overlaid them, laid 3 layers of halftones and blended same finished with drop shadow and added text made up of 4 different texts.

    So many birds are returning. I’ve been busy out shooting them. Wonderful to see and hear them again. Along with the ground squirrels. Overlay, textures, colours taken from the photo. Carole’s corner punches. My own paperclip. This is the first time I’ve done a double frame like this on a photo. I often do the single frame with lifted photo corners. Male Robin.

    Did anyone else go back to Dynamic Frames? Curious to see what everyone came up with.

    Sue,

    I see you did one of the projects from Dynamic Frames. Love your bird shots. Your page is very well done.

    Between the Robins, Meadowlarks, and some of the native sparrow, the dawn chorus is growing. The only outside element is the leaf. My next project will include the first frame from the dynamic frames masterclass. That particular frame will be new for me.

    Lynda, thank you for your kind comment.   This particular type of frame is a first for me.  I did wonder how I was going to showcase it, as it’s  a heavy, bulky  frame.  Anyway, I created a 3D page.  Wall and shelf.  Played with the shadowing.   The flowers and jug are from creative fabrica. They are all individual elements, which I arranged in the  jug.  Prairie Crocus.  It’s still to early for them to  show themselves,  this photo was taken  last year. Oh yes, I added some texture to the frame,  by using  the blinds texture, and noise to the  lighter inside area.

    BALD EAGLE – NESTING TIME: I’m experimenting with cass-ArtsyTemplate2 and Dynamic Frames. The background photo is by Kathy Henninger and the eagle photo is by Ed Frampton, both from The Hudson Valley in Pictures site. It’s a bit subtle but I promoted the eagle’s right wingtip and put it on top of the mask frame. I also duplicated the frame and expanded it to full layout size. All the fills are gradients. The title font is Rockwell. I love seeing these huge birds gathering big branches for their nests!

    EDIT: Following suggestions from Carole Cassel and Sue Thomas – I re-did the larger frame as the shadows were wrong and I cloned out some of the branches that stuck up in the photo. I also decided to remove the outside border.

    I was playing with the circle template and  this is what I got.

    We have a preserve in the back of our house and this fox was in the preserve just stretching, yawning, scratching and napping, completely ignoring me standing on the deck taking pictures of him. I thought that was very kind of him. 🙂

    Linda, I love it! I rarely get good photo opps with our foxes.

    This is the second time I have used this template from MFish in the A Love For Layout Templates Blog Train. The first time I used a traditional photo; this time I used a photo mask. The other layout is Florida Again.

    I was inspired by Trish’s gradients and I had just watched the gradient master class.  then I read Carole’s post about gradients.  I figured it was a sign to give it a try.  It’s a 3 color gradient with Cyan – K – Blue.  And it’s the first time I used the Texture Effects.  It was fun.  I’m glad to have learned how to make my own gradients.

    Ann, it’s really nice to see both layouts.  The eagle stands out more with the changes.

    Lynda, OMG!  those foxes are awesome.  We have them here (in Alberta) but I think I’m the only one in the province who hasnt seen one yet.😢

    Sue, I love the meadowlark.  Another one I’ve never seen.  You have interesting birds in Sask.  My friend is in Scotland right now and sent me a photo of an English Robin (is that right?).  They are so delicate looking compared the ones we get here (which I haven’t seen yet either).

    Been working on the cass-ArtsyTemplate2 this afternoon until now. It is past midnight 🙂
    Do you also always spend so long on 1 project? I’ll make, I don’t know how many changes before I’m happy with the result

    changing it to 600 seems to have distorted this one, back paper with a gradient and halftone, all elements added from stock, applied a cou0ple of textures a splash effect layer, and drop shadow to finish.

    Susan, thank you.  The American Robin was named after the  British/ European Robin.  The only similarity between them is that they both have red breasts. Commonly known in  Britain as Robin redbreast.  Which is a member of the flycatcher family.  The American Robin is a member of the  Thrush family.  The Meadowlarks are very Common.

    Ann, great work,  the subtle changes  made a huge difference.  Had you not duplicated the frame around the  mask, the outside frame would have  worked well.

    Marie-Claire,  for every minute you spent on your page, it was well worth it, It is  simply, absolutely, exquisite.

    Trish, you always create unique pages.  Your effects are always original.  I love them.

    Everyone, creates such  wonderful pages. It is always a pleasure to scroll through.  I must do it more often.

    My neighbor has an eagle nest on their property. We are pretty sure there are babies in the nest. She took this picture and shared it with me. I used Carole’s Simply Artsy template.

    So much for it being Spring. -5c today, with snow. A winter storm is supposed to be heading our way. I hope it doesn’t materialize into anything to much. One of my favourite Spring flowers. Forsythia, and a handsome Male Downy woodpecker.

    Lab 7 Mod 11. Create a photobooth strip for 5 pics; an arrow ribbon; and a cutout edge (kind of like a picot edge on a scallop). All the elements and ribbons are my own creation. The font for the title is Hesthia Austine; the word “Travel” is Kristen ITC; and the narrative is Arial Rounded MT Bold; I used the color scheme of the Palette Challenge for this month.

    A simple, no fuss page.  Vector  spiral, with a bit of a twist.  Created a burnt edge effect for the outer frame.  Created the frame around the  masked magpie.  I have told you before, that I used to have  Magpies  as pets, they were all named Jimmy.  After a period of time they all  learnt to speak simple phrases.   Jimmy good boy.  Pick it up, give it to me. Dinner.  They all enjoyed the freedom of flight, and would come and go as they please.

    Mary, I love seeing your layouts on the Labs.  what a great way to learn about PSP.

    Trish…OUTSTANDING!  I love abstracts and have started to move that way in my photography.

    Sue, I simply love corvids.  Especially Magpies, which are new to me since moving to Alberta.  We have a winter family that comes everyday (I have bird feeders), spring we have a crow couple and the magpies toe-the-line when they (crow couple) are in residence.  Although they are cheeky and do push the limits.  They are all back in the yard, crows and magpies in late summer as I have 3 bird baths out. It is so interesting to hear about your Magpies you had.
