Paint Shop Pro Week 4

Week 4 was very educational and intense. This week's lesson centered on building a scrapbook page. I've misplaced my old photos and had to use what was provided, but you get an idea.

After all is said and done, though, I might build a background page for the blog. I'll take a couple more sessions before I attempt it. Most of the background elements were provided; however, the main object was working with layers by creating the tags, cutting out the circles, grouping the layers and weaving the ribbon.

Until next time, God bless.

That's quite a few layers, I like how the name tags hang on the ribbon.
Looks like a lot of fun.

Doing the tags was fun and did you notice the drop shadows? I had to add a drop shadow to the photo, the ribbon, the names, and the tags.

Corel's Paint Shop Pro is a pretty neat program. I used Corel Draw for 10+ years, but since I am no longer in business, I could not justify the cost of an upgrade. PSP offers an inexpensive alternative. I get a little frustrated with some of its quirks because I remember how easy it was to perform certain tasks, or should I say that Corel Draw was so familiar that I'm having a difficult time changing the way I have to do certain tasks. :D

We recently bought Paint Shop Pro as well. I've never used a photo editing software so I'm very exceited about this.

I have to say,"WOW!" on the scrapbook page. I used to scrapbook, but it got to be such a mess and kids like to take your scissors, papers, etc. if you leave it out. Maybe I can get back into it now. COOL!

Laughing, check out http://www.lvsonline.com/. The classes are inexpensive and quite good.

Also, check out this blog entry -- in case you have not seen it...we did picture frames from ribbons

I'm taking the Foudation II class and plan to do the Foundation III session.

I've been dealing with LVS for years and find the instructions to be well worth the money. Should you take classes, give them my name...I may get a discount on my next class, although, I already get a discount for being a returning student and may not get referral discount. No matter; classes are either $11.75 for self study, $25 for first class registration, or $20 for returning students.

I think it is a pretty good deal.
