Double Page Workshop 2023

Recommended Posts

Like Gerry, I chose birds for my Day 4-Scattered. Mine are from using the Merlin App on my mobile phone which records birdsong when I'm out in the yard and then will give me a nice photo to match. The cats are not from Merlin. ? I also used a Yin Template. The background is a Waterfall Gradient with some grass texture at the bottom. The title font is Broadway with an embossed white shadow. My indoor cats, Adam  & Eve, are looking out the window and outdoors, Maybelline holds court with the bird flocks. She is quite feral and will not come near me when I leave some food out for her.

On Feet. WinterWalks.L.4.

This is wonderful Kasany.  I live in a very snowy part of Canada and I'm shocked at how many people still ride their bikes in snow and -30 celcius.  they have studded winter tires for them, who knew such a thing existed.  I think it's crazy, but then I dont care for the cold.

Lesson 3 in the bag....or in this case in the silos.  Photos from a 2017 trip to Saskatchewan to my cousins farm.  I found the silos endlessly interesting and somewhat abstract.  the sunset there were really amazing (which I didnt take advantage of -a regret).  as the crops were not tall I used grasses as a stand-in for crops.  I might title it but havent thought of a name yet.  I enjoyed this lesson and managed to combine them okay, thanks to tutorial.  I used a very light yellow layer below the grasses and reduced the opacity so that I could maintain the yellow-red of the sunset otherwise with the white it got too desaturated.

Lesson 4: I decided to use my flower pictures since I had so many of them. I used batch processing to add the white borders but not the size because of the different orientations. I used a script to change the sizes. The background is my gold shimmer, the leaves are from a kit that I purchased and the daffodil bouquet is my own. The font is Ambidexter, another open license font. I had downloaded the cass-alphaseparator script by mistake, but it came in really handy with the title. It not only separated the letters, but they were already formatted to change the fill and the stroke. The butterflies are from my kit and are beveled because a shadow ruined the transparency. I also beveled the title letters(saved the unbeveled file in case Carole doesn't like the bevel) because I thought that they stood out better. I also remembered to save the shadows on a new layer in case those need to be changed.  Love that script, Carole!

Day 5
The panoramic photo is a free wallpaper from wallpapersafari.com. because my own photos are much too small to make a panoramic photo. The small pictures below are my own pictures.

I really love all the colors in this layout.  What a great palette you could get from here.

Day 4 and it was a struggle to get something to my liking. I already did the Double Take Challenge as it was called then and that was all about flowers. My theme this time isn't about flowers, but in the Alps are growing beautiful ones and I wanted to use them for this layout. The dilemma was that I didn't want to make more or less the same page although with different flower photos. The idea for this layout is based on template by Yin Design and the background is a photo by Alicja on Pixabay. The font is Groovy Yellow and the little greenery is from my stash.

Here is Lesson 5 - My husband and I owned and operated the Warwick Drive-In Theater from 1977 - 1997. Frank's daughter Beth and her husband took over ownership and are still operating it today. I do a little work from home on advertising and social media for the theater. It happened to be a panoramic photo I had handy so, though I don't usually "toot our horn" here we are! The title font is Elephant. The background is a gradient with a little grass texture. We are open every night from March through Halloween. We're located in New York's Mid-Hudson Valley, about 60 miles from New York City. Our visitors have been know to drive up from Long Island for the weekend as there are lots of things to do in our area, including the newest Legoland.

I agree with Mary, I love these Drive in layouts.  It's got to be one of the most beautiful Drive-In settings I've ever seen.  I didnt realize you were that close to NYC.

I was so busy looking at all the cool layouts that I forgot to post mine.

Here is Lesson 4.  I used Amerio for the font and grunged it some more with the eraser tool and lowered the opacity slightly.  I had to composite two of the wood slat papers together.  It had on each side of the paper,  ends of the wood with nails, which would had both sides wit the nails smack in the middle of the layout.  So selected the middle of one and pasted over the middle portion and lined it up.  I cold see a line on one side so I used the eraser tool large and very soft with very low opacity and and erased over the line and it disappeared.  Yay, nice to have success.  More from my cousins farm, me wandering around shooting whatever caught my eye.  Coffee stains are from a brush set (or two) at Digital Scrapbook.

Impressive, Susan. I've never encountered an angel at the only farm in our family, out in Granby, Connecticut, USA. Those cars buried in the weeds look authentic, though. ?

Finally done with Lesson 2. I needed to ruminate on the idea and then get the pictures on my dog walks.

You never know when or where those angels pop up....if you are familiar with the "Weeping Angels" from Dr. Who, you best not take your eyes off them.  Kidding aside, it was in a garden at by the house.  The cars and the trucks were my favorite.  Just parked and never moved for 30+ yrs or longer, I should have asked.  I love that kind of stuff.  I wished I found more rusty stuff though.  I was going to head back there but Covid happened and then I found out my hamstring issue was a torn hamstring (1.5 yrs prior!) and sitting for 9 hours in a car was out of the question.  Maybe this year or next I hope.  One of my pipe dream holidays was to go to Connecticut and what I heard was called the North East Kingdom area.  Especially in the fall.

Ann I remember your layout and the story from the previous challenge!!! That one is hard to forget, so special and I agree it will be hard to top, but maybe something else will be okay too.
