    HI there.  Still working on my daughters scrapbook. I have until September so I am not as pressured as I was with her elder sisters. 60 years in 3 months was big time.  I took the background from the photo background and put a filter forge filter through it, ths buttons and frames  are from the kilt pattern. The element is a K.E design.

    Shirley, what a lovely layout and memory you are creating for your daughter. I am sure she will love to go through all the pages, once they are finished.

    Admiring other’s work on the mandalas, I decided to experiment with some of my flowery elements. After some surprises, this is what emerged..

    Wow, Linda, you are working so fast! You will get bored for the rest of the month now that you already did the tutorials of the Lab!

    Lynda: actually you inspired me but you did several where I only did one. It took me half a day!

    Carole, I am bored , that’s why I am doing the Labs and whatever else I can do. If we ever get our shots maybe we can get out of the house. We should be in Arizona right now, instead we’re freezing here in Illinois. I know, bit*h, bit*h, bit*ch!

    I am looking forward to the next Master Class. I have Filter Forge but have never really gotten the hang of it.

    Ann, you always have great things to share with us.

    Great stuff, ladies!

    Here are a few pages I did for my daily pic in my gaming group last month. Hope you like them.

    Gorgeous, Michele. Do I see some Instant Effects in there or maybe a wee bit of Filter Forge? Anyway, they are all beautiful, calm and serene in looks. I love them all.

    Ann, this mandala looks great, it has so many details. Good job.

    Lynda, you’ve been busy with the Labs. I haven’t done anything lately concerning the Lab tutorials… Hopefully, I’ll find my mojo again as soon as some kind of “normal life” comes back. I love the flowers you created.

    Michele, beautiful work and colors. I love all of them!

    I have been messing around with Lab 11-3 again and decided to see what would happen with the flower if I used other vector shapes. These were made with one of Carole’s quill shapes and the star.

    What is this gaming group you belong to? What kind of games are you playing?

    Absolutely great work on these quilling items, Lynda.  Beautiful renditions.  I can see where they would be wonderful elements on specific layouts.  My Mom was a quilling superstar.  But then again, I don’t think there was anything she couldn’t master.  Wish I had paid more attention back when! 🙁

    Thanks so much, Minka. No instant effects or filter forge. On Winter Run I used pic to painting; selected a piece of the tree, used it as a pattern, filled the middle layer with it, and applied gaussian blur. On Winter Love Fashion, I did a lot of selections and cutout effects. On Calm Indoors, I created both of the frames using the inner bevel tool and shadowing and used the blinds texture effect on the background.

    Cristina, thank you for your kind words. It wasn’t until you mentioned the colors that I realized they all had similar coloring.

    I love your lab work, Lynda. My FB gaming group is dedicated to one game, City Girl Life. It’s a life simulation game on par with The Sims. In fact, I owe The Sims Social on FB for sparking my interest in photo editing. Back when I was a member of a Sims group, the admin asked if I could help with pictures. I was absolutely clueless and started using free editors. Eventually, on the advice of a friend I bought PSP and stumbled upon the Campus. When The Sims left FB most of us started playing City Girl Life and I inherited a group. The rest is history. It was truly life changing for me. I absolutely love doing the pics which is the only reason I keep playing the game.

    More flags, erratic wind!   😀

     

    Michele, I took a look at your gaming page. Looks interesting.  🙂

    Following the scrap course module 1, but slightly swaying off the course and adding a 3rd photo I am continuing with my daughters scrapbook.  My pages are numbered very random at the moment, as some photos don’t suit the challenge. I have used 2 papers,  a patterned one a plain blue one which I have decreased to 66 so the pattern shows through. 2 elements and 2 frames. The originals don’t show much difference, but on 36×36 they certainly do. On the black and whites I find using Adjust  brightness/contrast>full light clarity is very helpful.

    Minka,

    I think we all wish we had listened to our mothers… I know I should have sat with mine more often and gotten more family history from her and more importantly, written down what I did get. To late now!

    Oh, I agree with you, Lynda and Minka. With both sides of my family being Eastern European Jews, I don’t know if we can go back very far with research. The records are really not there.

    Great idea with those flags, Lynda.

    Shirley, I like when people make tutorials their own. Carole is always saying they are just a guide, inspiration.

    Bokeh can be used to make interesting background papers. I think it enhanced the presentation of this picture by fashion photographer Andrew Yee. I used several different overlays and I think one layer is my own using a bokeh brush and adjusting the brush variance. (I tried so many different things that I just don’t remember. LOL) I changed the color on some of the layers by locking and flood filling; also used various opacity settings on the different layers.

    This is great work, Michele. The photo is astonishing, and the bokeh effect is beautiful. I have to practice this technique more… the last time I did was for the 2019 Love Story Challenge.

    Just playing with a script I downloaded from Carole’s arsenal this morning for stitched letters … combined with the bubble effect (but I only wanted one bubble) and theme all rolled into one. I don’t really practice meditation because I have never had any training whatsoever in it … and I read that many people without training (because there are so many different types of meditation) can actually have a bad experience where it drums up bad thoughts, actions, or remembrances. So I don’t really dally in that … no mantras or anything. But I do set aside a few minutes each day to have a quiet contemplative time. I feed the birds and sit and watch them, think pleasant thoughts and try to reflect on all the wonderful offerings of life. That’s why I call it my rest, relax and restore time. Think good thoughts. But I don’t call it meditation. It works for me – kind of calming.

    That’s wonderful, Minka. And I think whatever works for you, is what you should do. <3

    Shirley: Beautiful layout. Using the photo background as a pattern paper and the kilt pattern to make the buttons and frames ties everything together so well. This will definitely be something she will cherish. Day 10 is so cute. Interesting perspective on the photos.

    Ann: Fabulous is what came to mind when I saw your flower mandala.

    Lynda: Great job with the Lab 11-03 lessons. Love the face on your sun. Using other vector shapes made for some really interesting results. Fantastic shadowing on your happy day flags. They do look like they are blowing in the wind.

    Michele: Your pages are awesome and the sketches are perfect with the titles. Glam Glitters is stunning. I like how you used bokeh for the background.

    Minka: Lovely layout. And Michele is right, if it works for you, then you should continue.

    I am working on the first lesson in Basic Scrap Course. I applied what I learned in the first lesson of the Basic Course, and what I learned in the Love Challenge to create this image. My paper and WordArt were downloaded from Pixel scrapper. We love going to the beach! I think we have gone almost every year since of grandkids were really little. Now the oldest is almost 17!

    Karon …what a gorgeous post. I have to admit, I didn’t know the song so went to listen at YouTube. :o) Everything about that works … the colors, the sentiment, it’s really nice.

    Laurie … whatever you learned is sure working for you as that’s a wonderful page!! Glad you shared.
