It is a new month and new projects.
Show off what you are working on in May, be it a scrapbook page, a tutorial, or anything else you want.
We are curious and want to see, learn and get inspired.
These threads are quickly becoming a fantastic source of inspiration, support, and friendship. Keep them coming!May 1, 2020 at 5:05 pm #42289May 1, 2020 at 5:08 pm #42291

Cassel sent this Quick Page I think it was last November when I was afraid of templates. This is a page for my honey about his family. It has his sister and sister-in- law who have both passed away a few years ago. I used the Cassel Brad Factory which matched the page perfectly. That sure saved me some time too. I highly recommend it to all.May 1, 2020 at 10:45 pm #42297Dorothy DonnParticipant
Trish: What wonderful beauty to start the merry month of May. I love them all!
Those gold trimmed papers are right up my alley too. Nicely done on all three.May 2, 2020 at 2:23 am #42299
Dorothy and Trish, lovely work my friends.May 2, 2020 at 2:27 am #42303May 2, 2020 at 1:21 pm #42312MinkaParticipant
Anyone remember going to camp when you were a kid and having the rain hit the metal roof? It made a loud but calming noise. At least I thought it was – the loud pinging as it bounced off again. I’m still trying to get the gist of working with scrapbook stuff and merging them with whatever else you might have. Hope you are all having a splendid weekend.May 2, 2020 at 1:25 pm #42316May 2, 2020 at 2:37 pm #42318May 2, 2020 at 11:22 pm #42349May 3, 2020 at 4:04 pm #42355
The 4th of May is our National Remembrance Day for all those killed in World War II and peacekeeping operations afterwards. At 8 pm there are 2 minutes of silence in the hole country and afterwards our King will lay the 1st wrath at the National Monument in Amsterdam. There are speeches and more wraths and flowers. The next day is Liberation Day.
My uncle, whom I never knew, was one of the victems. He was a printer by profession and took part in the resistence movement and owned a printing business. The group he was part of, was betrayed and he was taken prisonner. A few weeks later he was shot dead on the Waalsdorpervlakte, an area in the dunes near The Hague. He left a wife and 2 kids.
In his honnor we named our daughter after him!
To commemorate him I made this scrapbook- page to day.May 3, 2020 at 4:05 pm #42356

No rain…just what I am working on…tried the Random Challenge Generator.
Number of photos: 8
Title & Text: Stitched Letters
Paper Use: Paper Cutout
Color Combination: Blue
Layout Type: Scattered Photos
I struggled with this one. I used Carole’s script, Scattered Photos, then tweaked the arrangement. My paper cutout is a mess…I’ll do better another time. I used a font for the stitched letters…will work on creating my own stitches.
The Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds are performing flyovers in many states to honor healthcare workers. They flew over our area, Baltimore, Washington, DC and Northern Virginia yesterday. I actually saw them as they flew between hospitals.May 4, 2020 at 6:18 am #42368MicheleParticipant
Wow, you’ve all been very busy beavers, haven’t you? Here’s a pic I made for my gaming group. The illustration is by a wonderful artist, Malika Favre. I’m posting it to show off what you can do with Carole’s Edge Punches. I didn’t have a lot of time to play with them, but they were easy enough to make a quick frame. (Click on the pic to enlarge it so you can see the details of the frame.}May 4, 2020 at 6:11 pm #42372
playing around something to do, made the background paper, added a mask overlay I made, all the flower by one I extracted, added a wreath from a kit, a tag I made a long time ago, a bow from stock, and pearls from was a tube.May 5, 2020 at 2:35 pm #42406CristinaParticipant
Wow, so much going on here!
Trish, Dorothy, Annie, Minka, Bonnie, Corrie, and Michele, loving all the work posted here. Great job, ladies!May 6, 2020 at 12:36 pm #42420
Good afternoon, Everyone! More rain here…I should go out and get some photos…so I could do the rain challenge. I never think to find pics online. Anyway, beautiful and very creative work you folks are doing. I do enjoy seeing your creativity.
Another backyard…this time it is mine. I went out yesterday to photograph the Tree of Heaven and on the way I ran into a deer with last year’s fawn and a fox.
The deer in the middle row is the same doe, different photos. The deer in the bottom row is her fawn from last year. If you look closely, you will see buttons on the top of his head. She is definitely pregnant so she will soon run him off…because he is male. Often the female yearlings will remain with their Mom until the next rut in the Fall.
The tree is the Tree of Heaven. It is an invasive species…a real pest. I will begin the fight to get rid of the ones on my property…there are tons so this will be a long fight. The flowers are pretty but they occur at the top of large trees so cannot be easily enjoyed. The photo bottom left is a blossom that fell…probably because of the rain and wind we have had.
Also pictured are a red fox and a Titmouse. The fox was on the way to hunt our squirrels. When he saw me, he headed off somewhere else. I was surprised I got any picture at all of the Titmouse…they flit so fast and seldom stay still.
Again, a template with many layers deleted. I just can’t see flowers, ribbons, etc. with wildlife. I think they look great with a lot of layouts…just not this oneMay 7, 2020 at 9:13 am #42425
Nice photos , Bonnie. We have all those but our deer stay in the preserve across the river and my Lucy likes to bark at them. Once in a while they venture into the yard. I’m still trying to catch the hummingbirds..talk about flitting! The fox never gets that close but I think it is keeping the squirrels and rabbits at bay, as well as the raccoons, which is great for the vegetable garden.
I have a feeling you are farther out into the country than we are. We are on the outskirts of town but the preserve is pretty much our backyard.
It’s to bad about your invasive tree because it looks really pretty.
Looking forward to more photos. Do you have a flickr site?
If you are interested, this is mine: http://www.flickr.com/lyndadiMay 7, 2020 at 9:20 am #42426
You did a great job photographing the Blue Angels. You really have to be able to follow them. I got a few good ones at my grandson’s graduation from the Naval Academy at Annapolis but not as many as you managed.
Thanks for sharing these.May 7, 2020 at 10:19 am #42433liberaParticipant
Hi all together,
@ trish, annie, bonnie, minka, michele, dorothy and corrie, still very creative and beautiful works!
@michele, I know Malika Favre too, she is a fabulous artist.
Carole mentionned the pic to painting plugin in the Campus update, end of april, and I remembered then that I downloaded it months ago but never used it. Curious again, I applied “stained glasses” and “soft pastels” just for fun.
I have a high resolution on my monitor but don’t see the last button, so I followed Carole’s advice to use the tab key.
But sometimes you need a bit patience to see the result in PSP or you need to press the key a second time. It is really a nice and quick way to have wonderful effects.

Ups, another try, a few minutes ago I killed my post completely, just trying to rearrange my pictures.
Hi all together,
@ trish, annie, bonnie, dorothy, minka, michele, corrie still very creative and beautiful results :-)!!
@ michele, I know Malika Favre too, she is a fabulous artist.
Carole mentionned recently the pic-to-painting plug in (Campus update, end of April) and I remembered I did the download monts ago but never tried to work with. It is a very simple and quick way to have nice effects on your photos. I got a high resolution on my monitor but still don’t see the last button (save & finish). I followed Carole’s advice using the tab key. Sometimes you need to be patient or to use the tab key a second time (freezing somehow) to see the result in PSP. It’s worth to play with.

A few and quick examples I tried with “soft pastels” and “stained glasses”. But there is much more to discover!May 7, 2020 at 1:32 pm #42444
I was doing an out of bounds technique and then did Carole’s technique. Her technique is not only easier but it is also more versatile. Her background can be changed and her frames can be changed. The other one you’re pretty much stuck with one background and one frame. Here are some examples.
The daffodil is Carole’s technique…May 7, 2020 at 2:49 pm #42445
I have Windows 10 and PSP2020 along with Pic to Painting. Pic to Painting has worked in the past but for some reason it doesn’t work now or I just don’t have the patience. It looks like it’s working but it doesn’t do anything. I reinstalled the plugin or rather fixed it. I made my photo smaller. I closed PSP and reopened it. Nothing seems to help.May 7, 2020 at 4:24 pm #42448
Yes!!! I have made it through Basic Scrap Course and this is project number 5. After this I’ll try to do something with the Rain. But we have, ironical enough, since the outbreak of Covid-19 the most wonderful spring weather! No snow, like Carole had in her garden, we already had to water the plants a couple of times. Ladies I see some much lovely work!May 7, 2020 at 6:58 pm #42450
Libera, I do love the results you have gotten from Pic to Painting, it is such a fun plugin. Well done my friend. <3May 7, 2020 at 7:50 pm #42451
Corrie, a delightful page for your final at that level, well done Hon. Now it is time for you to have some fun with the rest of Cassel’s tutorials … they are a delight and I look forward to seeing your work! <3May 7, 2020 at 8:05 pm #42452
Lynda, I love your out of bounds pics, all are beautifully executed. While I love the cleanness of Cassel’s technique there are some advantages to the other. I guess it all depends on what you are wanting to achieve.
I have Windows10, PSP2020 and PicToPainting plugin. I had a play around with it this morning and once I had remembered how to work it the results were fine. For me, it picks up the active picture which is then displayed on the left of the PtoP screen. I then select which option I would like to preview from the bottom menu and then click on preview. If I like what I am seeing then I click send and close and it changes the active picture in PSP to my selection if I don’t like it then while I am in PtoP I hit the reset button and make another selection. I noted that the plugin prefers to be reset during play otherwise it seems to fail! Is this how you are working with your plugin? Just lately my pc has been doing a lot of strange things and I am sure it has a lot to do with Windows 10 updates! Stay safe and well my friend. <3May 7, 2020 at 8:22 pm #42458
Trish, this is beautiful work my friend. Every time I view your productions I am amazed at how far and quickly you are progressing. Well done my friend. <3
