    Thanks for all your comments on my moon photos, Betsy these shots were taken on 8/10 2014. New Zealand time.  It was great to see all the moon shots.

    Lab 6-1

    • Puffy Paint
    • Cathedral Window Pattern
    • Wood Frame

    Suki is Japanese for the moon and means “having beauty in it’s simplicity”.  I thought that was pretty.

    This looks darker on the screen than when I had it in PSP The photo is mine but it’s a composite.  the middle of the moon was white with the really orange edges, but the white overpowered the rest, so I used another moon shot I had of just the moon and put it above the orig shot (with the tree silhouettes) and used darken blend mode to preserve the black in the leaves and fill in the white of the moon below it.  I must remember to check that all the settings are correct, I had a few issues with the puffy paint not looking right at all, I had a box checked that I shouldn’t have.  I was going for a regular scrapbook layout, and I had the frame/photo and cathedral paper on the layout.  I was deciding which papers to use with the cathedral paper when I kind of liked what I was seeing and wanted to do a frame in a frame.  All of it is my work except the font which is Franklin Gothic Book.  the cathedral window paper is really nice and so many options for it.  I need to practice the wood frame more and the puffy paint.

    In my other PSP group, We have a special subject. We are making something for someone else in the group. The theme is autumn that’s all.  We may pick out who and what we want.  I made something for Kaatje, The poor woman has been through a hard time as she is operated on several times for bowel cancer. I made something very simple.  From the month special Autumn. As Autumn has arrived here.

    I used the September Sketch Challenge to document my granddaughter’s honeymoon on Key West. The sketch showed lots of vertical strips, but I used photos instead of papers.

    Edit: after further consideration, I applied a Gaussian blur to the background photos.

    More Edit: Does Honeymoon count in the Moon category? 😉

    I’m on vacation in Chattanooga, TN with my daughter and yesterday I took a “zillion” pictures. We looked at them last night (we had gone to the Aquarium yesterday) and decided what ones were good enough to post on FB for friends and family. Knew I needed to work on them in PSP. So this morning I did some work on them. One I have to show you although it is not of the Aquarium, but a picture taken from the windows on the top level. This is of the only drawbridge here. I will how you the before and after. I had never really worked with the Adjustment Layers before and had ever even tried the “Tone Mapping”. But, WOW, what a pop of color. I used it on this picture as well as a few others with just slight adjustments. Here are the results.

    And now I have to comment on all the wonderful postings here. Everyone has been working and looking good with what they are posting.
    Susan, that is really cool with your Lab 6 posting. I could never get that gloss on my puffy paint, but finally accepted what I had done. Yours looks quite good. Maybe my letters weren’t thin enough to be able to show the gloss. Like the picture too. I also love photographing the moon.
    Jannette – love your Autumn.
    Shirley – wonderful – – I also like the moon.

    Lab 10 Mod 1: crochet lace pattern, clock face numbers and hands. Nice Ping for Cinderella, staircase and shoe; the coach is from Pixaby. The title font is Storybook which was a freebie with this module. I forgot what the journal font is.

    Had fun with this one. My daughter and I have enjoyed our trip. This year we went to Chattanooga, TN. This is a picture of a rest stop on the way there. All the papers are my own; the frame is a polarized version of the freebie Cass so generously gave us of tickets – this one for fall. The watercolor cluster in the lower right hand corner is a freebie from Creative Fabrica. The background layer I played with using various layers and blend modes with the paint brush over a picture of vibrant fall leaves, and then twirling the result. Lots of fun.

    Mary Solaas: Beautiful layout and that title is perfect! My daughter, Debbie, whom I only see once or twice a year, just left to go home to California, after a great visit. We truly enjoyed our time together, also.

    Back home. Started this yesterday since I love playing with PSP. Began with trying to remember how to angle a striped paper to make a bullseye – did 2 different ones, but this is the one I was aiming for. All the papers and elements are mine except the pinwheel which was a freebie from Cassel. The font for the title is AR Herman and the font for the journaling is Arial Black.

    Praying that Carole and family are OK.

    Thanks for the concern. We are fine. We had a lot of wind and the power flickered a couple of times, but nothing more than that. Others were not that lucky.

    Had spare hour, workmen called off on to an emergency job (we having a wet room installed)  so worked on lab 6.1, not too impressed with the puffy paint, but used it as a title (had about 4 goes at the puffy paint). I’ve made a total of 11 wood picture frames from images I had since my experiments with CAD. The background is my take on the church window frame exercise.

    I created a template from the above Fall layout. I had to redo it a few times because when you convert a template to greyscale, the picture and elements you add will be greyscale also! I did find out, however, that you can go to Image>Increase Color Depth>RGB – 16 bits/channel – and get the colors back. This one is about summer. The papers are my own as is the flower frame; the butterfly is from PS – Jessica Dunn, and the bee is from PS – Janet Kemp; the flower watercolor in the lower right corner is from Creative Fabrica; the title font is Hesthia Austine – inner beveled.

    You are welcome Jannette.

    I like your recent work because I can see a static flower and movement of frames there. Great!

    Jannette,

    Love what you did with the layered papers. I have to go play with that tutorial.

    Thank you Kasany and Lynda.

    It isn’t that hard. I made a new foto just with my cellphone in my friend’s garden from this beautiful flower and had to look after matching colors for the papers. And I made the pic on purpose centered and played with the papers.

    September Sketch Challenge. I copied the idea Sheila Hogg used to outline each of the seperate pieces – I used Cass rope picture tube. Had a hard time trying to keep to the layout of the sketch since I did not want to overpower the pictures. I did make a template from the sketch – that wasn’t hard, but the choices for the paper pieces really stumped me; tried various things and ended up as you see with papers that I have used before as blended colors. The photo of the flag is from the web and is by Jimmy Emerson DVM on Flickr. The picture of the Maryland quarter is also from the web. This was interesting. Guess I have been on a roll changing flat images into templates. LOL.

    Jannette – great layout – the colors are so good together – great job.

    Mary you did a fab job. I always end up changing backgrounds, photo’s etc; until something pleases my eye. I have far too much saved with freebies and hardly ever use any of it. Same with fonts…and I can’t stop collecting. Oh dear…

    I decided to follow in Jannette’s footsteps with the stacked papers. My papers are not as subtle and my edges are not as nice but I thought with Halloween coming up I’d use that for a subject.  The font is Halloween Night and the letters were made 3-D with Carole’s Dimension script. I made the pumpkins. Can’t remember where I got the other stuff.

    Happy Halloween!

    Mary, that is really a difference using tone mapping.  I have never tried it.  I just started using adjustment layer too.  Much to learn.  That tone mapping might be good for when I take pictures of the birds through the window, it’s always a bit blah and hazy (which I expect, but it would be nice to clean it up).  Did you get to Youghiogheny Art Glass while in Maryland.  They made amazing art glass.  I worked at a glass store (in Canada) and this piece of glass from there looked like an ostrich head.  Loved looking at their glass when it came in.

    I haven’t checked in this forum for a bit, quite a number of fabulous layouts.

    Jannette, I love your layered glass.  Your shadowing is perfect and give the layout such depth.
