    Thanks dear Cristina. The wealth of information you can gather here about our world is also one of my favourite things about the Campus. Wishing you a good one my friend. ;D

    Thanks Karon, much appreciated my friend. It is sad that she has passed on but her memory lives on in her work which is beautiful. ;D

    Sue, fabulous cards. And I agree with you; there are too many wonderful projects here to mention each. I’m just very impressed with everyone, especially our new members.

    Thank you Michele.  I can only endorse the comment on the new members,  looking through the boot camp  projects, the work  submitted is  incredibly  professional.  Of course Carole must take credit for her approach to her  tutoring techniques.

    Couldn’t sleep … just one of those nights. Was playing with Carole’s freebie Val frame. I am not much of a “Valentiney Girl” anymore. It was still fun to put something else I love in it. I often miss home and while I try like heck not to wish the Florida weather along to spring … Spring means going home. 🙂

    Minka: what a lovely layout. The colors you used are stunning and really bring out the colors in the pictures (which are beautiful). Never lived in Maine but did live in Massachusetts and the capes there are gorgeous.

    Thank you, Karon.  The two States are similar for beauty, but you will find a WHOLE LOT MORE dirt roads in Maine.  Like the ones in those pictures.  LOL  Maine doesn’t have nearly as much traffic either, but then again our towns aren’t the size of ones in MA.  I think the people are largely the difference.  Some friends of mine from Florida came to Maine to tour for the summer.  They complained to me that the roads were atrocious.  I replied that most of our dirt roads aren’t maintained for a luxury Greyhound bus “camper” towing a trailer full of ATV’S so they could “get back to nature”.  LOL All in good fun.  Unless they are going way upcountry … there aren’t many places for public ATV riding.  And the further north you go, you better leave the bus somewhere it can turn around and ride the ATV to get there.

    Anne,

    I loved your January Boot Camp tribute to our new President and Vice President that I hope you don’t mind that I stole your idea and made one with  an excerpt from Amanda Gorman’s wonderful poem.

    Everyone is doing such beautiful work. It’s a pleasure to peruse these pages. Thanks to all.

    Minka: Beautiful HOME layout. I would not have thought of doing the four photos around like that with the hearts.
    Annie T: I am definitely a bird lover so I am enjoying all your scrapbook pages. I like how you used the birds colors in the papers.
    Sue T: Your cards are amazing. Great idea to make them at the beginning of the year and having them ready.

    Thank you Val for your kind comment.

    It’s St Dwynwen’s Day on the 26th Jan, the Welsh equivalent to St Valentines Day.  Which has been around since the 11 hundreds.  Playing with ideas with fonts and text.   With some added extractions and promoted to new layers.

    Playing with Carole’s yearly roundup template; I made a memory-lane for the Bootcamp class.

    Ann,

    She was wonderful and quite amazing…20 years old – Poet Laureate.

    I printed out her entire poem and I’ve been going over it. It is very thoughtful and beautiful.

    Your Scrapbook memories are really nice. Love it!

    Hello Campus Friends.  I have been asked about the Transparency filter/plugin and what I use it for so here is an explanation and an example.  I use the plugin mostly for overlays and brushes/stamps.  I search on the net for a nice abstract background paper (or whatever takes my fancy … freebie of course!).  If it is not in black and white then I colorize it using hue/saturation.  If it is not square it doesn’t matter because I open a new image 3600×3600, select all, copy the black and white image and paste into the selection.  It will be distorted but as I am using it as an overlay it doesn’t matter.   Then comes the fun part using the plugin Transparency (which I have loaded into Filters Unlimited).  In the example below I have elected to eliminate black … it is now ready for use.  For the example I added a new raster layer, coloured it with a colour of choice (yellow), took that layer below the overlay and used the blend mode of soft light.  Then I added a texture.  Once you start playing around with it there a just so many overlays, papers and brushes you can create with it.
    P.S. No matter what I tried to do the pic showed up in reverse but I am sure you will get the drift, LOL!

    Beautifully done Sue. Did you used Cassel’s Dimension script? Whatever you did, it is lovely my friend. ;D

    Oh Lynda, that really did bring tears to my eyes. What a beautiful poem and obviously by a beautiful person. I have never heard of her but I will be following her progress now. This Campus has good souls and for that I am eternally grateful. Very lovely tribute Lynda, thank you. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Minka, this is a beautiful and eye catching page. You really do divide your time between two beautiful places. A joy to peruse, thank you.

    I thought the members of my gaming group were going to hate this, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I never know with them; that’s one reason I’m always trying different styles. Usually, it just takes on a life of its own every day. I took the original fashion illustration by Sunny Gu and there were lots of selections, borders, duplicating, and resizing. I was very happy with the flower pattern I managed to extract from the original; I’m not usually that lucky. Used a simple font called Coverface SE as everything else was so busy.

    Any constructive criticism is appreciated.

    Annie T / Carole Cassel: I’m looking for your posting about that Transparency plugin (#52123) but it’s not here?? Should be on this page looking at the numbers but they skip from 107 to 144 ??

    Thank you Annie,  I did. I used the dimensions 2 script.  It’s such a fun script.

    Cassel: I got the email that you had released Annie’s post but when I clicked on the link in the email it dropped me on What are You Working on (January) page that was blank, with no posts… ?? I finally had to use a bookmark I had for the previous page to see any posts at all…..
