    A better view of the frame I created.

    This is my project for the Song Theme “Colors” It is a song by Duke Ellington called Mood Indigo. It was recorded by several famous singers including Ella Fitzgerald & Frank Sinatra.

    SueThomas — Sweet little Jenny Wren. I had one nesting in my shed a few years back. I had a weed-eater in one corner upside down. She built her nest on the guard that was just the right size for her nest. When I found it she already had two eggs in the nest. I went out and bought a new weed eater because I didn’t have the heart to destroy her nest. She fledged three young and started getting the nest ready for another clutch. I moved the weed eater before she laid the eggs. BTW I really like your frame with the almost transparent edge for the picture to show through.

    Anne Lamp, what a lovely Wren story. I to have done a similar thing as you, bought a new roll of hose pipe, rather than disturb a sitting Robin on her nest. I have several Wren houses, and two pairs of old boots, which I bought cheap from a church jumble sale, years ago, which I have nailed to trees. The Wrens and other small birds love them to build their nests in. Thank you for your kind comment. You did a great job on your Song page.

    A lovely frame Sue. I used to be big on frames but now not so much. These things come and go. Perhaps I am a little like my grandmother who they used to call Contrary Mary. I used to make frames so elaborate that you forgot to look at the subject, lol! Anyway dear friend this frame is perfectly suited to the subject matter and I love it. ;D

    I spotted this gorgeous photo by Julie Maserjian on HViP and wanted it on my desktop but it looked unfinished so I added white 60px borders and created a selection border around the photo itself. Then I looked in my Image/Picture Frame collection and spied this one from Sue Thomas. I went back and colored the selection border with a shade from the frame and applied inner bevel and shadows. It now has pride of place on my 30″ black desktop monitor.

    Very nice Ann. I’m curious to know where you got my frame from?

    Sue: I’m not sure. That’s what it said in the PSP picture frames dialogue box. “Sue Thomas frame.”  I found it to be very handsome! Did you add it as a file on the Facebook group?

    No. All my frames are unique, no two frames are the same. They are created for one photo only.I use add borders to create them. On closer inspection of your page, the frame appears to have been extracted from the photo. I’d appreciate it if you could recall where you obtained it from. I have posted many files in the Facebook group, but not one of these style of frames.

    Annie, thank you for your kind words on the page. Depending on the project I have created more elaborate frames. I agree, you have to be careful, as to not make the frames distract the eye from the photo/image.

    Ann,  I didn’t post the frame anywhere. Someone must have extracted the frame and posted it. I was quite surprised to see it this morning.

    While the subject is brought up, here are a few guidelines for everyone:

    – 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 better quality than on a resized image anyways.

    Sue: I’m sorry for the confusion. I am going by the file name inside my PSP Picture Frames but perhaps it was mislabeled? It is a beautiful frame and I thought I was giving attribution to the creator. Sorry again. 🙁

    Sue: Here’s a screenshot of my PSP where I found  your frame. It’s in the lower left corner of the dialogue box for Picture Frames. It says: SueThomas01. I have a lot of frames installed. If one comes in a kit I copy it into this file as I find them more accessible. I rarely make my own frames when I have a good stock of them here. I’m also not very good yet at extractions. I need more practice!

    Now I’m completely baffled!  I checked my picture tubes, and I  don’t have it as just a frame, but as I said before  I only ever create those frames around  a photo, no two frames are the same. I don’t use  the picture frame tool.

    Here is the frame.  It is one I did in  May 2020.  I see from the screen shot that it’s a rectangle.  Your frame has been rotated,  but if you look in the top left corner of my image, there is a  small white glow, on your frame it’s  on the top right. There are also other similarities. I have to say that  it is my frame, but I didn’t  post it anywhere to be used.  This is ever so strange.  The only explanation I think of, is someone downloaded it and extracted the frame to use it.

    Here are 2 cards I made today when I was in great and unexpected need for cards and didn’t have the time to make them from scratch.  Yesterday I had downloaded a freebie from Creative Fabrica just in case, not knowing that this case would come so soon. I used 2 photos with a mask I had done before, the left one is the bouquet I used in the Color Song Challenge earlier this week with that dark background and this card has a very different feel to it. So it shows  that sometimes a quickie can look good too, at least I think so…….

    Lovely work on this delightful photo Ann … Cosmos and Sunflowers together, they make a beautiful show and your frame has showcased them perfectly. Well done my friend. ;D

    Very true Corrie … sometimes a quickie can look as good as something you have spent hours on. Beautiful cards my friend, well done. I am looking forward to seeing your magazine pages as you said you would be doing it on flowers. I haven’t really settled on a subject as yet but I think it may be about beach or holiday locations in Australia. ;D

    Ann, really gorgeous photo. I love flowers and sitting on the couch, I can see the railing planters with colorful flowers on the balcony.

    Beautiful work, Corrie, and the photos are gorgeous… It comes in handy to have quick pages, and they also serve as inspiration to create our own.

    Just playing around with cards and envelopes.  If you hadn’t already guessed I am a sucker for black and white.  Font used is Dragonfly and the flowers and lips I created myself using the brush and pen tools.  Thanks for takin a peek my friends.  ;D

    Outstanding, striking masterpiece Annie. It evokes so many different emotions. Depending on how you look at it. I like the added envelope. I will often create a matching envelope for a card, especially when sending it as an ecard. A job Well done, my friend

    Thanks so much dear Sue, your comments always mean a lot to me. The card and envelope look fine to me on my pc but when I downsized for posting the envelope flaps (shadow 0 0 45 5) got lost once posted! Ah well I know that everyone on this Campus would know they are there. White can be a little problematic for display… ;D

    I agree, plain white can be a little problematic. I overcome it, especially on envelopes, by using a  paper texture on the white.  With a very low depth, with some smoothness, the more subtle  the better.  Or I will us a very very slightly off white. It will be barely noticeable  but it will make a difference.

    Definitely the only way to go dear Sue … unfortunately I didn’t put enough depth into the texture. I used a lower range gray colour but I will know better next time. Something with a little more cream or blue would probably be best. ;D
