lunch at coppola vineyards


lunch at coppola vineyards

here is a page for my cali scrapbook..i used the french board for the first time..i dont know if i did it right. i used mask to hide the part of photo that is suppose to be under the french board ribbon..is that the way to do it??? any ideas appreciated

also i always am challenged by the drop shadows so would love to know if these look ok, though i am not sure how you can see them online

i used a style for the first time.... very proud of myself...i wanted the font to look a little more realistic on the crumpled paper but didnt know what to do so i rasterized type (first time i did that also) and then tried some styles till one seemed to look ok... what do you think? any ideas

i embedded the materials i used in the keywords of file info but dont know where in this posting to list that..i have seen it in a box by the lo in the gallery...how do i do that?

final question for anyone that can help me...i have put this lo in an album but i have other cali lo that i have posted already. can i move them to the album so they are all together?

thanks so much..i learn so much from all my friends at sg



    Great LO! I love the photos too!

    I haven't used this template so I'm not sure if the mask is the way to go but it worked so I'd say you did perfect!

    The only issue I can see with your drop shadows is that all of your photos and elements seem to have the shadow on the upper left side and your french board has shadows on the lower right. This is easily corrected by double clicking on your layer style (on each layer) to get the settings to pop up and just click the line on the circle to the opposite direction.

    I think your font looks wonderful. Looks handwritten!!

    To get the details of what you used listed you need to put that in the caption section of your file info, not the keyword section. Then when you upload there will be a details button with all of your info. HTH

    thanks for the great advice
    This looks great! You have some lovely photos!

    If you put your supplies in the "Descriptions" section of your file info, they'll show up here in the gallery.

    Which French Boards are you using? (Scrap Simple Emb French Boards 1?)
    My French Board sets include a short piece of ribbon and two extra buttons placed exactly at the right spacing so you can just put those over your photo or journaling. (I include one button/ribbon set pointing left, and one pointing right, so you're covered.) That way you don't have to do the masking. But I think your masking looks great!

    Wow, you're rasterizing...I'm impressed. The journaling and the crumpled paper looked wonderful with what you used.

    the frenchboard was in the autumn bliss collection...i think it would be easier to do with the ss cause you can figure out what you need and where to put it...i am just learning my way around here and didnt know about ss products but i have gotten a few ss papers so now i may need to branch out...i think the ss items give you so much flexibility

    where is descripstions seciotn of your file info?

    thanks for comments on the photos... i love taking pix and am trying to get better at that, but the one with the wine bottle is actually 2 photos merged cause the backround ( the vineyard) was very bright so it is over exposed so i adj it separatatley and then put it together with the photo with the wine bottle exposed correctly ( it was underexposed so i had to fix the bottle too)
