Susan Ewart: My daughter-in-law, Laurie, who has a BS in Graphic Design, tells me that this is a course in graphic design.December 27, 2022 at 4:37 pm #88911Susan EwartParticipant
Awesome Mary. That means I’m at the right place. How cool your daughter-in-law is living my dream job. Although she has to create for clients needs…..SCARY! Actually, the challenges in the campus teach us to create with criteria created by someone else. I marvel at how designers come up with different stuff over and over and over, and on a time line no less.December 28, 2022 at 3:43 am #88919SuzyParticipant
LOL! Susan, that reminds me of a story of when I was in college and I joined an ad agency, thinking about graphic design. I went to a big school and mostly hippies in those days, so I envisioned doing suede coats with fringe hanging down and chamomile tea or patachouli candles or something. My first account was Ace Hardware. ROTFLMAO! “Let’s see what you can do with this”, they said. I think it was around this time of year, so snowblowers and stuff you throw down for icy sidewalks.
BUT the reason I popped on here is the Spark pattern contest at Creative Fabrica! It is soooo fun! You tell it something like, “Little wildflowers and individual petals in various colors of every color blue, green pink, raspberry, coral, off-white, orange and yellow. hardly any blank space. facing all directions. watercolor illustration” and it comes up with some ideas which are mostly not-very-good to terrible, but I’ve had a few really good ones, too. I had just asked Carole for help with the seamless pattern script and this was right along those lines. I’m pretty sure that with the proper instructions to their AI computer I could get some really great patterns. To make them seamless, they often do the blur-thing, so that’s not too great, but it’s sort of like pulling the handles on the slot machines in Vegas…just a lot of fun to see what comes up next!December 28, 2022 at 5:21 am #88920
Suzy – Your story just reminded me that when using PSP for Effects, there’s a little die cube on the top right and I punch it to get different effects until I’m either satisfied or give up altogether! LOL It is sort of like pulling on a slot machine! 😀December 28, 2022 at 8:05 am #88921SuzyParticipant
Ann, that is exactly it! LOL, and it’s addictive, addicting? Whatever the word is!December 28, 2022 at 10:38 am #88923
I revised a New Year’s graphic from 2 years ago.
Revised: This is Sunrise in Standfordville by Tracey Rakusan. The font is Bodoni MT Poster Compressed.
The previous offering turned out to be a sunset.

Thank you, Kasany!December 28, 2022 at 9:53 pm #88947Anne LampParticipant
The background was created from CreativeFabrica’s Spark, that I also edited in Painter Essentials 6 (colored pencil). The picture in the center was made from a Screenshot from an Explore Osprey Cam.

Suzy, I loved your recount of your graphic design days. It’s a case of “be careful what you ask for, you might get it” isnt it. Learning about everyone’s lives is so interesting and sometimes humourous.
Ann, I wish I was standing on that dock in that warm sunset. What a great photograph.December 29, 2022 at 12:57 pm #88964Donna SilliaParticipant
Here is the post that I used for the FB sparkle challenge. I used the effect AbstractCurves to make the rings, your script for the jewels. I made the curled ribbon using AVbros.December 29, 2022 at 3:16 pm #88968Bonnie BallentineParticipant
Once again I left a layout to percolate and forgot it was there. Template by ChantahliaDesigns.December 30, 2022 at 12:02 pm #88983Colin HoosonParticipant
A very happy new year to all scrapbookersDecember 30, 2022 at 3:40 pm #88988Anne LampParticipant
I made this New Years page of my Perfect Dog, (At least she thinks so) Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and Wonderful New Year.December 30, 2022 at 4:48 pm #88990
I have this collection of mushroom photos, mostly from my daughter in California, where she “hunts” her own. These are the Coral fungus that she found. I used Inspiring Template-G, and the alphas are called Farm Fresh. The papers came from a kit designed for coffee lovers. I used the clip-to-it script a lot! I took a corner from the photo on the left to create the circular elements on the top left. The journaling font is Times New Roman. The information is from Wikipedia.December 31, 2022 at 6:23 am #88997MicheleParticipant
Wishing all my friends here in the Campus a joyous 2023 filled with love and good health.
My thanks to Carole and everyone here for all the fun we had in 2022. I can’t wait to see what 2023 brings!December 31, 2022 at 12:43 pm #89001
This is The Fairy Inkcap mushroom/fungus and I find it quite spectacular! I used Inspiration Template-L mainly because it showcased a large photo. And the strips work with the palette I made from the photo. The title font is Baby Olivia and the journaling is Times New Roman. The Fairy Inkcap information is from first-nature.com/fungi.January 1, 2023 at 9:33 am #89017kasanyParticipant
Happy New Year 2023!:)
Let New Year 2023 will be better than an old year.
My pic is not without any surprise. You know its elements very well:) Thanks for your friendly company guys, Carole, thank you for some inspiration/ideas in your newsletters:) )))))))))January 1, 2023 at 9:47 am #89019trish williamsParticipant
new year time to remember those that you have lost and miss.
This is in memory of my husband and son, my parents and grandparents
