It is a new month and new projects.
Show off what you are working on in October, 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!October 1, 2020 at 1:01 pm #47771
I tried the Gallery template with some photos of my daughter, Debbie, and her granddaughter, Magic.
I had to practically make the photos invisible while scaling them so I could see the outline behind but it worked out ok, I think. Let me know what you think.
Oh, and the closest photo was way smaller than the others but at least it was the correct shape. Luckily the AI engine in PSP2021 did a great job of the 200% enlargement.October 1, 2020 at 5:49 pm #47777
Very nice, that’s a template I remember.October 1, 2020 at 7:34 pm #47780
I can’t believe it’s the 1st October already, where did the summer go! The geese and cranes are flocking and feeding in stubble fields in their millions. The sight and sounds put one in a state awe! Winter is on it’s way. Cranes in the stubble field, and our autumn trees out back.October 3, 2020 at 7:58 pm #47826
A photo I took the other day, dark eyed Junco Sparrow Feeding on Mountain Ash berries. It was Xmassy. Created a tree decoration, used one of last winter’s photos. A soft frame using the selection tool. Text can be added at a later date.October 4, 2020 at 11:17 am #47839
Adjustment layers.October 4, 2020 at 12:27 pm #47842
I may actually abandon this layout..(trying to avoid saying it’s DONE which seems to jinx me and I find more to do!) lolOctober 4, 2020 at 1:11 pm #47843
Put it to one side for now. May I suggest that when you do go back to it, you replace the beach theme with trees etc, make it rural. I’m sure the Oriole would trade the urban life for a rural one. That is what I would do. You are the creator.October 4, 2020 at 3:35 pm #47845
Thank you, Sue. As my journaling shows, the orioles are now at the beach! I’ll bring them back in the Spring. I am finished with that particular layout, for sure!October 5, 2020 at 2:34 pm #47862Nemisis GoosehabitParticipant
Working on new presentations of some old photographs. Not “real” scrapbooking but it keeps me busy during lockdown.October 5, 2020 at 3:34 pm #47863
Love the Gallery, Ann. Definitely a nice presentation. I really like your Wishful Thinking layout. Birds tend to show up in places you don’t normally expect.
Sue… Loved how you framed the picture. Most interesting. The trees are so beautiful. We don’t normally get a change of the leaves down here. Awesome Christmas Card. Such a sweet little bird. Once again, you have done a great job using adjustment layers.
Nemisis… Great work on the photo presentations. With the color differences between them, it looks like one was taken in autumn and one in fall.October 5, 2020 at 3:37 pm #47865

Karon, thank you for your kind words. That Oriole layout was begun in the summer when he could have been dreaming about his winter beach scene. I particularly like your Construction Work layout, I remember those rusty cogs. Were they from Cassel? Sunflower, AL: I need to work on the title on a curve, myself. Well done!October 5, 2020 at 8:20 pm #47871
Karon, thank you ever so much for your complimentary comments. You have been busy too. I do like the sunflower page. You can learn a great deal from doing the tutorials in the lab. Always so many different techniques used, which can be incorporated in creating many other elements.October 6, 2020 at 4:28 am #47879MicheleParticipant
Nana Ann, you did a great job with the gallery. And I love the colors you used in your oriole l/o.
Sue, I’ve already told you how much I love your posts in the FB group.
Nemesis, you don’t have to do scrapbooking to use the techniques we learn here. Besides, your photos could be used for backgrounds or maybe masks for a scrapbook page.
Karon, your Lab modules are wonderful.October 6, 2020 at 5:59 am #47885MicheleParticipant
Thought I would share a few of the Daily Look pics I’ve made for my gaming group recently. Not scrapbook pages, but definitely influenced by what I’ve learned about scrapbooking. (For newcomers to the campus, the game I play picks the daily themes and Fabulous Divas is the name of the group I inherited.)
Hope you like. All comments/critiques/suggestions are welcome.October 6, 2020 at 3:16 pm #47887
Working at actual WORK.. I do graphics for our business, the Warwick Drive-In Theater and this is an event coming up in October. The skills I’m learning here are helping me with my actual job. 🙂
Oh, just to show you how popular this event is, here’s a photo of the lineup to get in last year..October 8, 2020 at 5:14 pm #47916
I have several projects that I have started, this is one of them. I know some of you will just freak out at the sight of this adorable little creature. They are starting to come into buildings now, so I have put out catch and release traps. I can have up to 5 in each trap. I take them out the other side of the trees, and beyond the horses fence line to release them. The gold frame is a font and a rectangle preset. It has been ages since I used the slip into it technique, which I thought it appropriate for this image, as the little creatures slip into holes in trees, birds nests, and holes in the ground to sleep and keep warm during colder climes.October 8, 2020 at 5:21 pm #47918
Here’s another one. It isn’t finished yet, I still have to add a few more elements to it. Like the mice and voles these are rodents too. Mask, torn edges on frame and torn paper. Something else I haven’t done for a while, yet it all looks very rustic, to be in keeping with the chipmunks habitat. I used the superscript and the subscript in the text tool bar to write the 1/2.October 9, 2020 at 8:27 am #47923Bonnie BallentineParticipant
Wow! As usual, incredible creations! Great work, Everyone.
Ann, you don’t use the drive-in for the mud fest, do you? I think it is cool you own a drive-in! Many good childhood memories going to a drive-in movie.October 9, 2020 at 10:10 am #47926
Bonnie: Yes, it’s at the drive-in. We have a special area where the local firetruck comes and dumps water to make the mud and then the jeeps and trucks drive through it and around behind one of the screens (we have 3 screens) and back into the mud again, hopefully not getting stuck! It’s lots of fun 🙂October 11, 2020 at 9:53 am #47966
I have several projects on the go. I started this one a week or so ago. Once I knew how I wanted to document the photos, I finished it off last night. Lifted paper, tags and pin created using tutorials along with some other tutorials which I don’t have to refer to in the campus any more to achieve some techniques in the creative scrap section of the campus. For the papers I used colours from the photos and added a little noise. I don’t normally use this many photos, I should have used a lot more, but I will do another matching page at a later date.October 11, 2020 at 12:05 pm #47968
I caught a glimpse of an ad on the tv the other night which caught my attention. I’m going to watch out for it to see what they were advertising. They had letters with artists performing within a letter. (not colourized though) I tried to replicate it this morning. I used hue/sat/lightness to match the colour of the letter. How can I improve on this Carole. perhaps you have seen the ad on the telly. I thought it was pretty cool! Here’s my interpretation, of course I had to use a bird. 🙂 I didn’t use a bevel or shadow.October 12, 2020 at 9:46 am #48008CristinaParticipant
Everybody is doing a wonderful and creative job.
I am having issues with my eyes, so I have not been working with PSP lately. Hopefully, it will be better next week so that I can participate in the Up-to-Date challenge.October 12, 2020 at 10:22 am #48010
Always lots of wonderful creations to view when I log in. well done everyone, always a great source of inspiration.October 12, 2020 at 2:34 pm #48013Natalie SpoonerParticipant
Its Canadian Thanksgiving to day, so here is my creation. The elements are from Autumn Clipart, and the cut out text is from a paper from Marisa Lerin’s August 2020. The others I created myself and of course my own photo.October 12, 2020 at 4:18 pm #48019Lynda DiGregorParticipant
I really liked your gallery so I took a shot at it myself. I don’t have any beautiful babies so I used my flowers. I tried to make a template out of the gallery but it was really hard to get a clean selection in order to make the templates. The tulips are on the template. They are somewhat ragged around the edges The random flowers are just put onto the designated picture areas.
Of course the template is at Freepik: Background vector created by starline – http://www.freepik.comOctober 12, 2020 at 7:18 pm #48026
Ann… Thanks for the inspiring words. Yes, the cogs were Lesson 2 from Lab 5 Module 12. I really enjoyed making them. I recently found out that my Sunflower, AL layout needs to be changed, the picture was taken in Elberta, AL. Silly me, should have asked first. Wow on the Mudfest; both the photo and the layout. I think it is wonderful that you are using what you learn here to use in your occupation. And how cool to have your own drive-in. They have mostly gone the way of the past so it is nice to see some are still around.
Michele… I always enjoy seeing what the Fabulous Divas are up to. They all look great, but my favorite has to be Fashionably Formal.
Sue… Just adore the deermouse card. The photo is so perfect and you have done a fabulous job on the framing. The read on the chipmunks layout is so interesting. You are so right about the torn edges giving it a rustic look (and maybe a little of chipmunk nibbles). How wonderful that you can do so much and not have to reference the scrap section of the Campus. Love the bee layout. My sister and bil have 3 hives and they are constantly a miracle to watch. Great job on the bird within the B.
Cristina… Take care and hopefully we will be seeing your beautiful work soon.
Natalie… Awesome Thanksgiving page. The photo is stunning and the colors you used for the paper, frame and elements make the blues and reds in the photo pop.
Lynda… Am loving your gallery pages. The photos are astonding and work so well with the template.October 12, 2020 at 10:01 pm #48028Bonnie BallentineParticipant
The gallery template is tons of fun! Ann and Lynda, you did a great job with it. I may have to revisit and make another.
Ann, the mudfest looks like tons of fun too. Don’t think I would try it…I’d get stuck but it would be fun to watch.
The work share here is amazing. Keep it up, Everyone!
