My husband is allergic to bees, so when we find a bees nest I have to knock it down. There was one on a fence and I wanted to be protected so I drove the truck up to it and with a broom stick I knocked it down and quickly rolled up the window. I searched on the internet and found the “aging” wonder woman. I brought it into PSP and removed the background and made a PNG file. I added arrows from preset shapes and added some texture. I added the sticker effect from Cassel “How to create a sticker with PSP”. I added a Queen bee, rather sexy one to offset the aging wonder woman!!! I added a bee hive and placed it in the lasso, erased the back part of the lasso to make the effect the bee hive was inside. I used a SF Slapstick Comic font. Added a narrow frame with a small bevel to the pictures. Added drop shadows per Cassel’s guidelines. Used a purchased scrap kit for the paper and call out. My inspiration was from Cassel’s Lab 6 Module 5. The pictures were not that great, my husband was taking them from inside the house, but the story was funny and I wanted to remember it.September 2, 2018 at 6:41 pm #21111
Royanne, you should totally add the story to the page too! Someone looking at it without you beside will not know the whole story and it is a GOOD story!
You could add the story in the black of the shadow of the vehicle on the right using the Text Wrapping tool, OR you can create a facing page with the story so if you print an album, you would have two pages with it: photos on one side and story on the other.September 3, 2018 at 9:10 pm #21164
Royanne, what a good little story and your page with those elements you added put a smile on my face…. very creative!
DawnSeptember 4, 2018 at 3:35 am #21168
Royanne, that is hysterical! I totally agree with Cassel that you should add the story.

Royanne, I loved the technique to knock down the nest 😀 … And I agree with Cassel and Michele, it is a great story and deserves to be told… I like the idea of the facing page.September 4, 2018 at 8:00 pm #21174
Thank you for the comments. I will add the story to the page as suggested. Yep, with the aging process we forget all to quickly.September 4, 2018 at 8:07 pm #21176
I followed the instructions that Sue Thomas put on facebook for this effect. Sue, thank you for sharing your talents. We had a lot of rain last year and back of our yard had so much water. The granddaughters loved to play in it. I had struggled along time to decide how to scrap book it. When I saw Sue’s post on facebook I knew that was my answer.September 4, 2018 at 9:01 pm #21177Sue ThomasParticipant
Thank you very much Royanne! You did an awesome job, the water really does look like it’s flowing over the frame. That’s due to the slight angling of the flow from the sides. Also by using a very big size brush it emphasises the force of the water, which in reality also gives depth of field.September 4, 2018 at 10:36 pm #21180DeLoris MusickParticipant
Royanne, that is a darling story and page. And yes, add the story too! You also di an amazing job on the water photo!

I loved both of your pages here Royanne, fantastic work my friend, thanks for the great viewing. <3September 5, 2018 at 7:25 pm #21211
Hello Scrapbook Campus. When I was a little girl (in size and age :)) my mother has a seersucker tablecloth which had the broderie anglaise cut out and stitching. I loved that tablecloth and when I found Cassel’s tutorial – Intermediate/Creative Scrap/Paper Patterns/Eyelet Fabric well I simply had to have a go! I had a seersucker texture to apply to the background. Followed Cassel’s instructions for the flower and dots and then spent an age playing around with stitching to get it to look as close as possible to Cassel’s example. My gosh it did take a long time but I eventually got there. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for takin a peek. <3September 6, 2018 at 7:11 am #21217
That’s beautiful, Annie.September 6, 2018 at 7:28 am #21218
Thanks Michele … took some doing and have a whole color range of them now … as you do, lol! I found the best way to colorize was to grayscale and then increase the color depth to 8 bits/channel. Other color methods were too washed out. <3September 6, 2018 at 9:19 am #21221September 6, 2018 at 10:26 am #21222Sheila HoggParticipant
Fantastic projects Everybody, loved all the works and the diversities. Not doing much as got dreaded Tax return to do 🙁

Good effect Michele. Kind of has that brain illusion thing going on if you stare at it for a little while, the boxes seem to flick back and forth! Well done Hon. <3September 6, 2018 at 6:25 pm #21224
