Reflective Ava ;)

Once I was into my program again (and also due to the fact that I got my dates wrong on the Ridge Cemetery Tour that I thought was today but is actually two weeks from today and I had nothing else to do...) I started playing around with the filled letters again. This time I cut and paste and flipped them around and use the opacity button to create reflective letters. Ended up doing something similar with the background papers, and, it seemed to work! I like it anyway...:-)

The Magic of Bubbles

Still obsessed with the bubbles pictures, I created this a while ago and sort of forgot I had done it until I pulled up my program again and browsed through my finished projects and saw this and thought, "Wow, that one is cool!!" LOL!

Bubbles and More!

Nothing like a new technique to sidetrack your day!

I watched a Webinar last night for Creative Memories Storybook program, and learned a simple, yet fascinating technique in which you can add text under a picture (or anywhere around it, actually) and have the text become part of the picture! Cool beans, huh??? :-)

All you do is create the text, then line it up next to the picture (or as I found out, it doesn't necessarily need to be touching the photo). Select both the pic and the text, flatten them, then fill the image area with the picture. It's sooo fun to see what you can do with it!

Here's what I was doing till just past one in the morning! LOL!

I could have positioned the above photo a bit better,
but it was my first attempt,
and I was too excited to get to the rest of the pics!!
Did the one above,
then decided to use try a different take on it...
I couldn't decide which of
the Bubbles I liked the best...;)
So the next trick is to pull myself away from this 'puter before I find myself pulled into playing around with this even more...!!!

Torn Pages - Summer Breeze

So I was playing around with my Creative Memories program with a new technique (torn pages) that was so darn simple I can't believe I couldn't figure it out for myself! And, in the process of testing out the procedure, I got a bit carried away and started playing with other buttons I've not used utilized much, such as switching out paper, the shapes button, and using textures on the papers. I'm not sure what this is...? But it was interesting!! At least I found it so. Hope you do, too...:-)
