Hi Lynda, thank you for your kind comment. I downloaded the free floppy bow. I do like that bow. I colourize it, and hang it over picture frames, and tree branches. It can take a bit of time, using the selection tool, promoting to a new layer etc, but the end result is worth the effort.March 26, 2020 at 4:50 pm #40897
Cassel’s PhotoSplash script is ever so quick and easy to use, and the beauty of it is, I can edit it to my liking. I used the goose to create the background paper. Whether you are a photographer, scrapper, digital graphics artist, or an oil painter, art comes in so many different forms, and the quote I used applies to any number of us. Especially myself. Stay safe and well! Keep psping!!!March 26, 2020 at 8:23 pm #40899
Thanks for the preview of the PhotoSplash script. It looks pretty nice. I’ll check it out.March 26, 2020 at 9:16 pm #40901
Sue, I really do enjoy your work. For me it is the simplicity, you let the subject matter talk for itself and the information you provide is priceless. Thank you my friend, I had a wealth of eye candy this morning! <3March 26, 2020 at 9:19 pm #40902
LOL! I hear you Lynda, I feel the same way and searching for the right ribbon to use for the bow is also part of the fun. Nice bows my friend. <3March 26, 2020 at 10:32 pm #40904
This is my first go with the PhotoSplash script. Think I need to work at it more but here is my first effort.March 26, 2020 at 11:48 pm #40905
Hi Lynda, you did a lovely job on the cone flower, it didn’t take you long to go and purchase the script. I love the brushes that came with the script too.
Hi Annie, thank you for your very kind comment on my work. I look forward to seeing your projects which include masks and the blend mode. You take care, and stay safe. XMarch 27, 2020 at 5:21 am #40907Michele aka micfinParticipant
Thanks so much for your kind words, Sue. I just posted on the random challenge thread that I simply can’t give my creativity, such as it is, the attention needed to produce anything right now. I’m too stressed out about what’s going on here in NY. Been spending my time trying to distract myself doing online jigsaw puzzles and binge watching Netflix. This will pass and I’ll be back. In the meantime, I check in here all the time and the projects everyone is sharing are making me smile. 🙂March 27, 2020 at 6:51 am #40908CristinaParticipant
Hi Everyone! You all are creating lovely and diversified work. It is a joy to look to each and all of them, and also the touching stories. <3
Like Michele, I am not feeling very creative lately. I am trying for days to come up with something for the Scavenger Hunt Challenge. Only yesterday I finally managed to choose a photo for it. :0
Better days will come, meanwhile, as Sue always says, let’s try to be busy psping!
Stay safe and healthy. Best wishes to all of you 🙂March 27, 2020 at 11:43 am #40912
Thanks for the heads up on the brushes included with the PhotoSplash Script. I didn’t realize there were brushes too. That’s what happens when you don’t read the instructions. 🙂 I installed the brushes and tried the script with the brushes. Here’s what I came up with.March 27, 2020 at 1:47 pm #40913
Well, really Lynda! Consider yourself reprimanded for not reading the instructions. 😊😊 You did a lovely job on the flower.March 27, 2020 at 1:50 pm #40917
I was trying out the “reflection” module in Creative scrap. What I came up with. Not perfect but the technique is interesting.. practice, practice, practice!
I’ve posted the original photo and two versions of the reflectionsMarch 27, 2020 at 1:52 pm #40918
Thankyou, Sue…I need a slap on the hand every once in awhile.. 🙂March 27, 2020 at 2:45 pm #40922
Hi everyone … I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. And I hope you all have food. 🙁 I would bring it to you myself if I could. I have been playing this morning as all the chores are done. I am after “getting the process down” and not so much on content with this one. So … I followed Shirley’s suggestion and went to unsplash. Wow – enough there to keep you busy forever! And large ones, too! So I found a lovely one of an owl. Then I wanted to practice all the things Cassel has taught us … so I changed the image to not really a cartoon look but pretty close by using the add remove noise, edge preserve, edge effects find all and then adjust and then the blend. Tried a slew of them until I got the ones I liked. Made a couple textured overlays, used the stitch brush that I made watching her class … I don’t know what else because I didn’t write them down. But a whole bunch of stuff I gleaned off of her classes went into the tag just so I could use them. That’s the only way I will remember them … is TO DO THEM. I would suggest if anyone, like me, who doesn’t have a lot of big pictures, which I don’t – try out Shirley’s suggestion. You can get lost just looking there. 🙂 Have a good weekend everyone.March 27, 2020 at 2:47 pm #40923
Oh yeah … I remember now … one other thing was PUT THE TEXT inside the selection box. 🙂 And just like she showed, I had
it all ready to go typed out on something else. I guess my noggin’ hasn’t turned to total mush yet. LOLMarch 27, 2020 at 7:41 pm #40935trish williamsParticipant
Hi All, hope you are all coping with this virus, its so scary, and although I spend most of my days alone, I feel quite isolated now, are you all in lock down. you have all been so busy,and so many interesting effect. I feel like Michele at the Mo. and just peer at a blank screen, still it has given me a chance to put those files in order.
Well this one is a bit on the dark side, I guess matches my mood at the mo. I used a mask and layered it with paint effects add 2 elements and a border to finish xx keep well and safe xxMarch 27, 2020 at 7:48 pm #40936
Lynda and Sue, you have both inspired me to have a play with the paint splash script which I purchased yesterday … just can’t help myself, lol!March 27, 2020 at 8:55 pm #40941
I tried making lace today .. oh my gosh, I got laughing at how long it took me. Again, I wasn’t after content so much as getting the process down. My lace looks a little loopy but it’s done. What a neat trick at the end to make it round. Loved it. When Cassel does it, it looks so easy. NOT! Eventually, I was successful.March 28, 2020 at 8:46 pm #40953
Dark days for dark projects Trish my friend … you have done well. I hope you are staying safe, best wishes Hon.
Minka, your play has been a joy to view, well done and thank you! <3March 28, 2020 at 9:07 pm #40956
I found this wonderful photo of a puffin on Unsplash while I was searching seabirds. Of course I had to do something with it. The layout I used was inspired by one of Marisa Lerin’s from Pixel Scrapper. I used Cassel’s paint splash script on the photo and her cube beads script for the title. The flair button and the sticker were both created from tutorials by Cass. All the background papers are my own as is the paint splash background. Thanks for takin a peek!March 28, 2020 at 9:11 pm #40957
Your Puffin is so cute. Great job using the paint splash script. The whole thing just looks great.March 28, 2020 at 9:14 pm #40959
I have so many photos from our winter away so I’m trying to use some of them. I was making some Meli-Melo Paper using some photos from Arizona so here is a simple scrap page.March 28, 2020 at 9:24 pm #40960
You are certainly telling the story of our woes in a fabulously artistic way. Wonderful work.March 28, 2020 at 10:55 pm #40962
One serious page done for the family scrap album. This goes into Vacations. John’s sister came down from the North Carolina mountains to join us on the beach . She was a devotee of Edgar Cayce (an American self-professed clairvoyant who gave more than 14,000 psychic readings while allegedly in a self-induced sleep state . Cayce maintained his subconscious mind (which he identified as the “mind of the soul”) would leave his body and retrieve knowledge from the spiritual realm where all subconscious minds are connected .) and wanted to visit his Society on the oceanfront. There was a lovely garden there, so we paused for some pictures.

I guess we all remember the eye from Jasc’s PSP? I started playing around with it and some older filters to numerous to name but Micrograhicx made a lot of them back then. Here is what resulted and I am not really sure why? <nod nod>March 29, 2020 at 12:30 am #40966
I admit I have not visited as much so I went all the way back to March 10th. Here are my numerous comments:
Minka: The Vase is beautiful. It truly would go perfect in my dining room.
Living so close to Norfolk tug boats really fascinate me. I love yours.
I was blown away by your Mnodes. What a contrast! Love it.. Your series of first hand social distancing made this crisis up front and personal. I just saw your owls. Wow I guess I too need to learn more about lace.
Bonnie: That two year is so cute. He look a wee bit mischievous too. I used to have to do the bulletin board so I totally understand. 89th Betty birthday WoW! Made the idea of hiking in Colorado seem like an everyday thing but nicely done as well. Your sunrise was so serene
Trish: Your papers are so pretty and I just loved those swans. You irish page was well green lol. No I relly like that one too. That late night was worth the time for sure and the stars ne does look faded. I have had that happen a couple of times as well. I just saw Dreams. A wee bit dark from you usual but I loved the golden touch which I think always looks better with dark colors.
Helen: Your memories of your mom tugged on mine. No matter how old we get we will always miss them so very much.
Christina: That is the best use of slats I have ever seen. Well done
Sue: I will never get enough of your wildlife. That tiny nuttalls..you just want to hold him/her.
I guess I will have to try that script you all are talking about so much.
Lynda: I truly enjoy Cassel’s bow & ribbon scripts. They totally induce hypnosis watching them.
Your playing with the Photo Splash script on my second favorite flower was most interesting. What you then did with the iriss was fantastic.
Annie: Your puffin was pure fun. I loved your changes to him too. He has to be a male all puffed up like that. <nod nod>
Every One: Have you seen the corona virus scrapbook kit online yet? What are you thoughts about such a kit? Is it tacky? tasteless? or timely?March 29, 2020 at 5:10 am #40968trish williamsParticipant
My take on pop art.
hope everyone is well and safe xMarch 29, 2020 at 9:25 am #40970Michele aka micfinParticipant
Haven’t shared in a while, but I still create something for my gaming group’s daily theme. I kind of liked this one. It’s a combination of three pics. I made masks on the two musicians using a technique from the Photo-Graphics master class.
Love everything you are all doing. Hugs!March 29, 2020 at 4:16 pm #40971
Thank you for everyone’s kind words. I love your puffin, Annie. We have puffins in Maine. People think they are a big bird but in reality they are pretty small. They are also protected. You aren’t even allowed to go on the island where they are. They are out on Matinicus Rock. Everyone’s work has been lovely and I like looking at them and snagging some ideas of something to check out or try later on – or look for in one of Cassel’s classes. I don’t have anything to share this afternoon but I did have a couple of questions. I wondered if you all would share. I recently bought a Wacom tablet and while I have had it a little while, right after I got it my life got busy with having to move and I packed it back up in the box and haven’t tackled it as yet. I would like to know if any of you work on a tablet and where, if any you know about, would be a good resource to learn to use it … well, other than just trial and error. When I first got it I set it all up, but it seemed very overwhelming. Then I had to move and had no time to learn. Now that I am in my own house, I have the time – well, extra time now that we all have nowhere to go … so I set it back up and want to try again. Anybody got any good tips on them? Also, Dorothy, I lived in Norfolk three times as my Dad was career Navy. I still have plenty of family there and my nephew is a tug boat Captain there and he took me out to spend the day on his tug one day when we were visiting. It was a long work day but I had a blast! Trish, I loved your pop art. Great one as it had a renaissance vibe going on. I love all the scrapbook ones, too … I am just not good at that. Trying, but just not something I ever did. Lynda, love your Arizona graphics. They are a real storyboard of your adventure. You ladies are turning out some great uses on that Photosplash Script. All very unique. Sue’s canadian goose looks just like he is splashing that water off! Thanks for any info you can offer.
