    April, thank you yet again for your kind comment.  I often browse through the campus forum, first thing in the morning, to see beautiful creations, is often a good way to start the day.

    Sue

    Sandra, very nice work, may I suggest that you lower the  hardness and opacity more.

    I created a mask using 3 brushes, round, fur and curlies. The frame is a font using Cassel’s mitred corner script.  Rabbits  are very clean animals.

    Did a TREES layout for Sept based on #5 beginners. The trees are from Carole’s Picture Tube and I had a hard time finding them. They are listed as: cass-trees and not in the Nature folder.

    I live in the city and am constantly amazed how much wildlife I see here! As you can see, I like dramatic color! I had to make my own picture frame.

    Very nice Ann, wildlife has become adaptable, all to often because it  has to.

    I’ll start by introducing this beautiful lady, she is a Variable Darner Dragonfly. I’ve just started this project, and not to loose the details of the mechanics of her wings, and other details, I opted for out of bounds, using a triangle frame, so not to reduce the image, to document and show case her. My question is, bearing in mind I don’t have filters/plugins, is there a way to remove the background showing through her transparent wings (Outside the frame) in PSP. As it is it looks odd and unrealistic. If not it’s back to the drawing board.  I used the latest  template from the lab 10-9.   I created a scalloped mat, instead of using a round brush I used  a flower.

    Thank you April,  he is cute, I have several wild rabbits, and always pleased to see them, as I’m always  afraid they will become a meal for a Great Horned owl, or coyote.  I use fonts a lot to create frames, or to decorate  frames, especially  Cassel’s special fonts.  I’ve  also found some very nice free  lace brushes online too,  the  mitred corner script is wonderful. I’ll post a page where I’ve used a font to decorate a frame.

    April, here are 2 examples. I create the frame,  add the font, delete part of the frame  which isn’t  needed, merge down, and  edit the frame.  Here I used sculpture, inner bevel and drop shadow.

    April, for this one I did the same thing, except I  coloured the font first before merging down.  I then select inside the frame, invert to add a texture.

    I also enjoy creating word art.

    Take care

    Thank you Sue for showing the examples of your use of fonts and must say I love them …. they are beautiful!  the way you have done your word art really looks great…your work is very inspiring.  I have had that mitered corner script for a good while now and not used it and  also have cassel’s edge fonts  so  will try doing some creating over the coming days.

    Sue your dragonfly is a lovely photo however i do not have any suggestions to make on how to solve your question. Your projects  are wonderful for card making. do you ever make cards with them as i am sure family and friends would be delighted to receive them

    best wishes are sent your way,

    Dawn.

    Cristina: Great job on the Lab and it looks like you are having a grand time. Your out of bounds layout/card is fabulous.
    Sue: The simplicity of the layout really makes the photo stand out. Very lovely. Your Goldfinch layout/card is awesome. Great job on the out of bounds. Oh my word, what stunning pictures of the bees and flowers, perfect. Wow, Sue, you have been busy. Wonderful job using the gradient and watercolor brush as a mask. Morning Glory is beautiful. Rabbit is adorable and my dil would squee over this layout. What a fantastic job you did on the extraction in Dragonfly and the frame builds. Also in Safe Trip and Sparrow. Love your word art.
    Ann: The layouts from the photo strips you made are gorgeous. Wishful Thinking is just perfect. Fantastic job on the Family Love layout. Busy Bees is so cute and loved the back story. Awesome use of tubes to make your Trees layout.
    Sandra: Nice work on the mask. Great idea to use a rose to create it.

    April, I do  believe I have inspired and encouraged you to use  more fonts and  the mitred corner script  and other resources. I look forward to seeing how  you apply those tools.  Thank you! I do create all my own greeting cards and calendars.  The Calendars I print off myself and post them, use scrapbooking  corner punches.   I  print and post greeting cards to family, and close friends, again  using a corner punch on  a lot of them.  For the ones I send via email I create them using  5×7 size, so if  the recipient wants to print them off, which they invariably do, they don’t have to worry about size. I rarely post on  my FB page, but I will send pages via messages.  I mainly create pages to document  the subjects I shoot, from the  tiniest insect to the largest mammal in Canada, the Moose.

    Karon, thank you ever so much for your kind comments on my pages.   You have created 3 astounding pages. Beautifully laid out in every respect.

    In the dragonfly page, I used cassel’s  lace picture tubes to create the frame,  dragonfly script and one of her corner punches.

    I used Cassel’s floppy ribbon script, selction too, promote to a new layer to place over the frames.  Organza ribbon, I  lovve creating  this  style of ribbon, as it’s  transparent.  I created the  circular paper using  a font.  Cassel’s date stamp script.

    I don’t have many kits, or background papers, so I tend create my own,  usually  by using a photo, or create my own gradients using the technique from the  calendar challenge, years ago.

    For this page I  created a rounded corner frame using the selection tool, duplicated, and used the  distribute evenly tool, to  space them out. I  use all my own photos, which means that I extracted the dandelion from a photo.

    I’ve posted a very small selection  of my work from August, as I usually post  on the  Facebook page.  Many on here will have already seen  them on FB. My pages  are quite minimal, as I’m not a fussy, frilly untidy person by nature, whether I’m cooking, baking  or doing book keeping, everything is  neat and tidy.  🙂   Enjoy my pages, and thank you for  taking the time to view them.  Happy PSPing.  If you’d like  to know how I did something, especially the newbies, please ask.  That is what I did.

    Well here it is. I could still be editing the wings this time next week, but there come a time when I have to say, stop. I did what Sheila Hogg recommended. I selected a portion of the promoted to a new layer wings, mirrored horizontally, matched to the ones on the right side, erased using a soft brush to remove the original wings, and fair play I matched them perfectly, even if I say so myself. I then played with a few tools to reveal a little of the frame underneath, without loosing any detail on the wings. I used the push tool to lift the out of bounds wings, and did the same with their shadows. To give some dimension. All in all I’m almost 100% happy with it. Only a few would know that their wings are transparent, myself included, but her wings, with the light and colours from the tree and sky, give them that stained glass windows effect. The heart is a font, which I used an inner bevel and shadow on. Word art, scalloped mat was created using a flower brush. The lace doily and dragonfly elements are Cassel’s. So there she is,
    a most beautiful creature if ever I saw one.

    It’s a joy to come here and see all this fantastic work. Great job, Everyone!

    Sue, your photos and pages are outstanding! … I agree with you in giving credits to Carole; I have learned so much from her all these years, and I am sure I will learn a lot more in the future.

    Karon, thank you so much for your kind comment on my layout <3 … I admire your work and creativity; you not only create something with the Lab Tutorials but also with each one of the Experiments and Fonts! Your work is a source of inspiration.

    Sue your layouts are beautiful and thank you for taking the time to explain how you do it.   I never thought to adjust the opacity etc thanks for the tip.

    Karon thank you.  I love your layouts you did a wonderful job with LAB 10 Module 9.

    I was watching the Master Class Video called “Paintship Christmas 4”  and see where to go thru the layers menu to new mask layer and adapt my mask from there with Gaussian Blur and a grunge brush for this new and improved masks.  I think all my projects would look better if I slowed down.  For some reason I am feeling rushed on all that I make.

    I have used Carole’s new script-Fire in this image.  As I use PoserPro 11, I have used a bird model of a Phoenix by Ken Gilliland.

    Another mushroom hike. This was a template which was not yielding good results so I kept only the frames and went off on my own.
