Task 11

 

I've attached my swatch. I got this using Syndee's Color Swatch Action on a picture of a stage, but had to crop the picture a lot or I just got the red of the curtains. This is one of the first Actions I bought and I never realised I didn't have it installed properly because I hadn't moved the pattern file.

Task # 10

 

I have been experimenting with Placing Your Journaling Inside a Shape because I always use a rectangle or a bought type path and think this would help me vary my journalling. Unfortunately it is written for Photoshop and I'm running Elements so I've had to do a fair bit of experimenting to get it working.

 

In PSE to write inside a shape you need to use one of the included custom shapes, you are not able to draw your own shape as shown in the blog tutorial. However, you can combine multiple custom shapes and the text will flow across them as if they were one shape. I'm hoping when I come to do my layout I can select my shape as shown in the tutorial and make this a standard shape, then over the top recreate the shape with the custom shapes so I can then add my journalling.

 

Fingers crossed this works for me, I won't know until I have done the layout as I don't know what the shape will be like.

 

Thanks for sharing this link! I've been trying to learn this technique forever!!!! Love it!

task #9 and 10 Picking a tutorial. I am so glad I'm behind. I found this one gradient I have only ever used gradients on background paper. So I thought I would do it to emblishments or pictures. It sure looks neat!!

I am so far behind in this that I don't know if I'll be able to catch up or not. My mojo is still missing, but I feel stirrings that it might have been sighted. We shall see.

To everyone who is behind like I am ( I'm only on task #12) don't worry this is only a challange to ourselfs. we let no one done but the most impoortant person in our lives ourselfs. Even after this challange is over you still can finish the tasks and get it done. It's all up to you. Many times I'm too busy/sick or have sick kids at home and can't get it done. What I do it catch up on my own time and try to get those pages done. To me it's just about getting it done!! So no worries.

 

Many of you have been ill and my prayers to all of you. It's that time of year just don't stress out these challanges are just to keep you motivated!! Remember I love each and every member here and you are all an inspritation to me and that is why I keep coming back!!

You can add a photo of your inspiration Jemima or describe it to us... eg a thick woollen jumper with dark blue zig zag pattern... just so we know what to look for in your upcoming layout!

Speedbump -- COMPLETE

 

Great task, Conda. I really so appreciate reading comments on my layouts, so this is a great reminder to reciprocate. Always feels good doing both. I've been trying to keep up with the JJ gallery so had to look around for one's I've missed and of course I had already commented today BEFORE seeing this post. Oh well - I am now up to date.
