Thank you, Annie. Aren’t her illustrations awesome?
Lynda, I’m glad you enjoyed them. FYI, Fabulous Divas is the name of my gaming group for City Girl Life. I inherited it.
That’s a beautiful result from pic-to-painting, Corrie. You should definitely use it in a project.
Love your hula hoop page, Dorothy. It brought back wonderful childhood memories.May 28, 2020 at 4:27 am #43372
Oh soooo nostalgic Dorothy … love it my friend. <3May 28, 2020 at 9:55 am #43374
Hi @ all the creative ladies 🙂
playing around with many functions and features and for fun with shapes, text tool and using rulers.
It’s always difficult to find a font which is legible when you reduce the pic.May 28, 2020 at 1:52 pm #43377trish williamsParticipant

Nice job on the pizza lady Libera. I agree with you regards the fonts. I find it hardest for the journaling to select an appropriate font. I want it to look like handwriting but most of the script fonts are very thin and they do get lost in the downsizing. I do set it on bold but if I have a small space and have to reduce the font size I then tend to duplicate a few times and fiddle with the blend mode to try and darken it. I find that adding a drop shadow, even a tiny one, tends to distort the font and I like crystal clear. One day I will find an appropriate script font and when I do I will let you know! ;DMay 28, 2020 at 7:02 pm #43383
Yes, you are right Annie. Every time the same fight! I’m practicing with some fonts, will try to make a little list and let you know the result as well, if they are good enough.May 29, 2020 at 6:51 am #43388
Libera, I love your pizza face. It’s adorable.
Have you ever tried Alex Brush, ladies? I find it to be a very pretty and versatile font.May 29, 2020 at 8:38 pm #43395CasselKeymaster
That is a nice font Michele. So many script fonts are so fancy they are hard to read. This one seems easy to read.
Libera, don’t try to aim for legibility in the smaller version; it is understood that the smaller version is just a preview. Your full-size version is the important part.May 30, 2020 at 1:44 am #43397
Thanks Libera, if you find anything appropriate I would very much appreciate it. The font that Michele has displayed looks really lovely … thanks Michele, I will source a download.May 30, 2020 at 1:24 pm #43400CristinaParticipant
It is always gratifying to come here and see all the creative work posted, showing different styles and techniques. The Campus is really a source of inspiration.
Michele, the “Twain Festival,” is very impressive. Corrie, a project with this image would look great. Dorothy, lovely memory page. Libera, a very creative pizza lady. Trish, your work is unique and very creative. Great work, ladies!May 30, 2020 at 5:24 pm #43404MinkaParticipant
Today marks a special day for us in Florida. A return of a manned space launch from Florida shores. A big deal to us. And two lucky guys get to go the the Space Station. I love everything about space. I wish I was younger and I would have been all over and about that program! Even now, I am totally fascinated by everything they talk about. Love it. We’re getting toward the very end of May … can’t believe June is almost here! I’m not so sure but watching all about the space program was at least NOT WATCHING about covid-19. I think we all need a break on that! If you haven’t learned about Covid-19 before now, you have been stuck in a cave somewhere! It was refreshing to listen to something else … and have it go well!May 31, 2020 at 7:45 am #43410
Minka, I love what you did to commemorate the space launch. I am also fascinated by it all.May 31, 2020 at 7:46 am #43412
My latest birthday card. I started with AnnieC’s contribution to the Spring of Teal Blog Train. Then it took on a life of its own.June 1, 2020 at 5:35 am #43429Corrie KinkelParticipant
Here is my last posting for may, I did the Random Challenge Generator and it gave my this:
Titel and Text: Phrase Strips
Paper Pattern: Gingham
Color Combination: Brown
Michelle I’ll certainly do something with my PTP photo, but that one did not go well with this Challenge.June 1, 2020 at 10:06 am #43435
@Carole: thanks a lot for your comment, you are right, the full-size is very OK. The “desire” still remains to find something more appropriate. Always the same story …LOL
@Annie: don’t know if you saw it, I used the “hobo” font for the pic in the scraplift challenge. It’s really nice to handle with.
@Michele: I like your birthday card. Thanks for “Alex brush”, it’s somehow elegant. I already made download, installation and the test (200, 100, 72) I tried it in 2018 and 2019, surprise, the results of the same font size are different!
@Corrie: a really inviting picnic scene 🙂
By the way, did anyone guess how I made the hair of the pizza lady, may be Trish got an idea? LOL…June 1, 2020 at 9:11 pm #43451June 2, 2020 at 6:53 am #43456
Wow, Trish, that’s a really cool way to answer and the way you placed the eyes, thumbs up for your fanciful idea!!
Yes, broccoli!! LOLJune 21, 2020 at 6:06 pm #42649
We wait Annie :-)!!
@Lynda, Trish and everyone interested: just found this, will look over it a bit later.

Trish, what beautiful work you do. Love that you make your own papers and how you manage to put everything together so cohesivelyJuly 4, 2020 at 2:41 pm #44488
Dorothy Dunn: Always a delight to see what you come up with. Backdoor is stunnning. Great job on the random generator. I think my favorite is Haircut. Memory of a Rainy Night in Georgia is really close to my heart (my daughter lives there), and I think the Tokyo style Pic-to-Paint was a wonderful chose. You are really getting into the random generator challenge and doing a fantastic job. A lovely tribute to your honey’s family.

Corrie Kinkel: random challenge generator page is well put together; your pic-to-painting project is awesome. Perfect picture for it. Great job on the quick page with the flowers. Time to party especially after seeing your party time layout. What a lovely tribute to your uncle. Both the page and naming your daughter after him.July 4, 2020 at 2:45 pm #44491
I started individually, but this was going to take me all day, so to all you awesome creators:
Michele aka mcfin: your birthday card is delightful. Taiwan Festival is so inspiring and got a big kit out of the Let off some steam. That’s right up my alley, LOL. Both of your stained glass flowers are amazing, though I think I am more partial to the vibrant one. You are definitely the one to turn to when looking for birthday ideas. I really like how you did Dan’s birthday wishes; then the one of Adri Ana. Summer is Here is such a fun layout. Your Art Fairs page is perfection, what a great idea (I may have to use it document my husband’s granmother’s painting). Great use of Carole’s edge punches.
Minka: off to the space station what a great idea, wish I had thought of it. I never had to chance to go to camp as a kid; but your layout makes me wish I had.
Libra: pizza lady is so cute. Taken away with the cat in retropop and the watercolor egg. Oh wow, what beautiful “paintings” you did using the pic-to-paint.
Lynda DiGregor: Totally blown away by your stained glass mandalas and tulips. Tulips would make great earrings. I have an in-law that collects rooster ceramics and he would be estatic over your stained glass one. You are really making me jealous..stained glass and then digital marquetry, pic-to-painting (I have a hard time finding a picture that works, but you have it down pat). Fabulous job on the out of bounds technique.
Annie Tobin: Amazed with what you did on your gothic amsterdam page. Papers, tubes, layout, oh wow. Adore your kimmi doll…Did you keep in layers so your could change her outfit with the seasons? Great alpha tags.
Bonnie Ballentine: Birthdays are always better when shared. Nice layout. Love how you arranged the photos on your fun tree layout. I would love to see your yard, it reminds me of my sister’s. Stunning pictures, especially of the titmouse. You did a great job using Carole’s scattered photos script on the Blue Angels and the addition of drawn planes is a wonderful idea. I think you did a great job on the template and just remember that’s all they are. Using them is just a springboard to your creativity.
Royanne Hewko: Great pictures of birthday boy…really liked how you spread them out from no smile to great big smile.
Cyndi Roether: Awesome use of the generator challenge of triangle. Must be so scary to be close to the fires they have been having out west.
