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.
Sandra, very nice work, may I suggest that you lower the hardness and opacity more.September 6, 2020 at 3:14 pm #46913
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.September 6, 2020 at 6:13 pm #46914Ann SeeberParticipant
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.September 7, 2020 at 12:22 am #46937
greetings Sue, beautiful work and a very cute rabbit… I have that script but have never thought of using it with fonts… must give that a try…
Dawn.September 7, 2020 at 12:24 am #46938
hello Ann… great use of the tree picture tube and you have created a very nice page.

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.September 7, 2020 at 6:00 am #46944
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.September 7, 2020 at 6:04 am #46946
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.
SueSeptember 7, 2020 at 7:24 am #46947
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,

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.September 7, 2020 at 11:14 am #46960

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.

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.September 7, 2020 at 3:44 pm #46982
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.September 7, 2020 at 3:47 pm #46984
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.September 7, 2020 at 3:56 pm #46987
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.September 7, 2020 at 6:54 pm #46995
hello Karon, Beautiful results on the Lab lessons and enjoyed viewing them.
Dawn.September 7, 2020 at 7:08 pm #46996
hello Sue once again your pages are beautiful ! and I have enjoyed viewing them this morning…… I also make my own cards and that is my main use for PSP I print them out on special paper and add them onto my card bases. .. Thank you for sharing your projects here in the forum as i do not do face book .
hope this note finds you well,
Dawn.September 7, 2020 at 7:41 pm #46997
April: thank you so much for the kind words. I have really been enjoying the Labs.
Sue: You have certainly been busy creating stunning pages/cards. I always enjoy what you post.September 7, 2020 at 9:06 pm #46999
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.September 8, 2020 at 8:10 am #47004CristinaParticipant
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.September 8, 2020 at 11:39 am #47007sandra jonesParticipant
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.September 8, 2020 at 12:07 pm #47008Nemisis GoosehabitParticipant
Some very nice and well presented work here. Thank you all for sharing them.September 9, 2020 at 2:42 am #47014Jan WilsonParticipant
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.September 10, 2020 at 3:25 pm #47028
Sandra: Great job on the mask. Doesn’t look like you rushed on it at all.
Jan: Love how you used Carole’s fire script.

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.
