    Finished Lab 8 Mod 11 (almost to Lab 9 – Whee!). Greek Key design pattern – I actually made 2 of them – one I copied from a picture of curtain tiebacks. Create a tag – I did one with a different top this time as directed in the tutorial and cut out a heart at the bottom which I filled in when placing it on the layout with red. A tube of sprinkles! Not particularly my cup of tea, but I did one with various colors so that it could be used with any kind of celebration. I had trouble with reversing the path for “Connor”, but I muddled through with the help of tutorials. Anyway – I actually had fun doing this.

    Hi, Thank you for the kind comments on my work. So here is another section of Lab 5 11; I put the rust alpha to wok on this one and the screws picture tube both from Cassel.

    Mary and Colin, I love seeing your Labs. I am motivated to take that direction too, after the busy two weeks I am having….excuses eh?🙄.

    Cristina, thank you for your congratulations!   I was very pleasantly surprised to see that I had made the  finals.  Being a self taught, armature photographer, having recognition for my photography is   fantastic.  As the standard of entries  are always very high.

    Lab 8 Mod 12 finished and ready for Lab 9. This one called for: 1. spiral notebook page edge and making the edge of the page as a brush (I did this and applied it to the spiral notebook cover and also applied a spiral binding to the cover – from Cassel’s tutorial on how to make a spiral binding picture tube); 2. create a polaroid frame (I did and placed it in the PSP picture frame folder so it could be used with any size photo; 3. phrase strips (I followed the instructions but made the strips as titles for the pictures). The font in the title is AR Herman colorized with hues from the instant effect paintings. The font used in the title strips is Cataneo BT. I had to fix the perspective (with the tool) on my original picture and that is the first time I’ve used that tool. So cool things learned with this layout. Oh, yeah, since the color replacer tool was discussed a little while ago, I’ve been playing with it and using it frequently – so another color changing tool in my tool belt. Oh, yeah, also have been removing overhead wires from pictures and removed a number of them from the original picture – with the scratch remover tool.

    Sue and Lynda, I agree with Corrie – your photos are beautiful. Congratulations on your photos being chosen in the Corel contest.

    Sue and Linda – WTG!!!  That is a biggie, so congratulations!

    Colin, Nice Job!

    So very nice to see these, Mary!  Really I thank you a lot. I have been wasting time today on some little “paper” caption tags, and I think the answer might be in the AI section of the Instant Effects.  I’m going to try it, anyway.  I have a request in the Feedback thread, but it is awaiting approval, so this gives me something to do in the meantime. (And I love the sprinkles on your LO! LOL!)

    Mary those Instant Effects are very cool.  I would like to learn that too.  I have joined you and Colin, and started today with the Labs.  I think they are going to teach me a ton.  And If I cant have a ton of money, then I’ll gladly take a ton of knowledge any day.

    I started at the start, with Lab 5-9.  Where I learned the following:

    1) how to make multicolored dots for background paper.  I learned about the Brush Variance Pallet and used Color Blend I think at 70%, then used a blend mode (“Burn” at 63% opacity) on the dots once they were on the background I chose for them.

    2) Text Background Paper became my main subject.  I had wanted to put a photo on but didnt want to cover up the “I” part (“I love you”).

    3)Making eyelets and eyelet ribbon was quite enjoyable and a good practice for me with the magic wand and getting a better idea about inverting selections.

    Susan, that is WONDERFUL!  Cassel should have your LO in the Lab, it is so perfect! If you put a photo that, and I think you should, even if two or three “i love you”s are covered, that leaves 3 or 4 uncovered! Plus you could size it a bit smaller and tuck it under your eyelet ribbon.

    Congratulations!

    Thank you for the ideas Suzy.  I had originally wanted to do a photo of my father (passed in 1995) for fathers day.  You are right, it would still be understandable as a repeating alphabet with “I” being the I love you part.  I will try and rework with an old B&W photo if my scanner behaves enough to scan one.  I like the idea of making a small B&W image and tucking it under the eyelet ribbon like you mentioned.

    Thanks to everyone…I’ve had some issues so I haven’t been paying attention. Thanks for the heads up.

    Sue, congrats to you. Beautiful photos but I think you already know that!  🙂

    Susan, Your alphabet is very, very clever.  Kudos! I might have to go back to the earlier labs.

    Thank You Lynda.  It’s actually a common one calligraphers would do.  Only it wouldn’t be a repeating alphabet, just once through with the “I” being I love you done in a different hand.  Suzy had a great idea to tuck a smaller photo under one of the eyelet ribbons.  I think I could also use that as a base and add different photo’s for different occasions.  I just started the labs.  Watching Mary and Colin progress with the Labs was very motivating.

    I’m sorry I’ve been quiet lately. I have been a little distracted because I was fighting to save my pet fish’s life, but it was not to be. S.I.P Patriot – gone too soon. 🙁

    In going over the labs I have done, I find that I did not do Lab 6 Mod 4 as I had problems with the lifted flap on an envelope and the silhouette. So — I decided to do it this time and this is the result. The silhouette is from a picture by Jill Wellington from Freerange Stock. All the other papers and elements are my own except the heart that I put in the mask for my silhouette. The frame around the background is Chinese gold pattern and is inner bevelled. Sorry, don’t remember what the font is. The envelope is actually from a site and is probably Pixel Scrapper. The birds holding up the banners are from NicePng.

    Maverick, the groom-to-be and his son, Logan, my great-grandson, who was one in February. The wedding’s coming up in September. The bride-to-be is my granddaughter, Ilana.

    Edit: Noticed I forgot the shadows on the photos and forgot to activate the brads that were there but in hiding while I worked on the frames.

    As usual, came to share some of my daily pics from my gaming group. I found a lovely illustration by Kim Jacobs on a google search for this theme. I used an original mask to try and mimic a cross stitch effect on it. One of Cassel’s flower corner punch brushes added an nice embellishment. The font is Coventry Garden NF.

    That’s lovely, Michele! What sort of games do the Fab Divas play?

    Here’s one from last week. Using the Painted Background script with the air spray option and then a little Gaussian Blur, I got a great result for the background paper. The Slats script gave it a sense of movement, I thought. The font is White Dream.

    For this one I used a starbust template that Cass gave us as a freebie. I haven’t purchased the script yet. I found some wonderful pics on Google (my best friend lol). In order to get the two-tone effect behind the template, I used the orange background with a yellow layer on top. Then I erased some of the yellow using a brush set with lower hardness, density, and opacity. The font is Hello Summer and the hearts are just some doodles.

    Thank you, Ann. The Fabulous Divas is a FB group for people who play City Girl Life (formerly Disney City Girl). It’s a simulation game that I started playing after the Sims Social on FB shut down. We dress up our avatars according to the theme the game gives us every day. We also decorate our apartments. Sounds silly and you’d think it was for little kids, but the vast majority of us are adults. I’ve pretty much lost interest in the game itself, but I love doing the pics and I love the friends I’ve made over the years. And that’s how I ended up here at the Campus. I don’t remember how I found the Campus, but I wanted to learn how to do pics for the group and luckily stumbled across it. The rest is history. 🙂

    Michele, your layouts are always so inspiring and motivating for me.  I love your style and beauty of them. And thank you for your explanations on how you made the layouts.

    P.S. A lot of adults like what we think others would think as “for kids”…hubby and I watch anime…we are 57!  Inspiration for creativity can be found from the most unexpected places.

    Michele – so much fun; love what you do.
    Well, I am in Lab 9 and this is mod 1. Cubic pattern (played with it for a while); cutout ribbon (made several of the arrow cutouts); tied string (this gives me the most trouble, but I saved it separate to put on different tags). Title font is Century 125 Blk BT with an inner bevel; font on the tag is Arial Rounded MT Bold (which seems to be my favorite for journaling and titling).
