Speedbump: I changed my siggie on January 2 to a winter blue. I hope it counts because I like it and don't really want to change again already...

Task #13 COMPLETE

So, I looked around our house and the Christmas tree is still sitting there all decorated so I figure that there are lots of colors and sparkles to inspire me... And, maybe it will inspire me to take that tree down.

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!

TASK #13

I have this cross stitch piece hanging in my living room because I love it. I made it a couple years ago, and enjoyed the whole time. The soft, warm colors and the whole idea of a little beach community just inspire me. Every time I look at it I want to go to live at the beach!

Task #13
I love the area rug in our living room. It has soft shades of blue, green, peach on a brown background. The pattern is paisly and floral. I am not at home right now and cannot take a photo of it, but here is a picture of my DGS laying on it playing with one of his gifts at Christmas.

I created my siggie on Jan 3 using a photo taken in my backyard. Snow had just fallen and created a beautiful wintery wonderland with sparkling ice crystals stuck to every branch of the trees. I counted this scene as a blessing. Here's a link to my FAV siggie
: My Jan Siggie.

January 18 - Task # 13 -- My Inspiration

My inspiration comes from an acrylic painting (4ft x 6ft) of crotons by a Miami artist. The painting displays bright, tropical colors -- in a perfect setting of light highlighting the leaves.

Although I cannot post Marcelle's painting, I can show a croton here:

Tasks #9 and # 10
I’m going to use Brandy Murry’s Breaking Down the Layout –Blending Video Tutorial. This is an action packed tutorial and I worked through it a number of times just to get the hang of it! LOL. Amongst other things Brandy demonstrates the use of the Lasso tool to extract; the re-colouring of a photo to sepia using a paper; the Darken Colour mode; and finally to top it all off she shows how to use a layer and white to "erase" parts of the paper that the photo blends into. This is an excellent tutorial that demonstrates Brandy's amazing talents.

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.

January 18 - Task #13

I’ve chosen as inspiration the 1914 painting Frauenkopf, Gerda by the expressionist artist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. I love the confident look of Kirchner’s subject, Gerda Schilling. Kirchner’s use of intense colour and Ms Schilling’s stylish clothing enhance the appearance of a woman in charge of her own life.
