My first layout with the 2nd set of online classes

Well I enjoyed the first session of classes so much, that I signed up for the 2nd set of classes.. whew.. this layout had so many new techniques.. I'm going to have to do it again so I can remember all that I learned. Be warned.. if you decide to take the classes.. it ADDICTING!
The photo I used in this layout was one I took on my deck last summer.. I thought it was a pretty cool photo. This butterfly let me get right on top of it and it never moved.


  1. Oh wow this one is beautiful. Is this using the SU software?

  2. This is just beautiful.. I am wondering if it's all digital? It is just beautiful.

  3. This is beautiful, Lorrie. What a great photo!

  4. Very nice! Tell us more about the techniques.

  5. Bridget, this is using Photoshop Elements... this is part two of the Jessica Sprague classes I've been taking.

    Sandy, yes, it's all digital. This was another assignment she walks you through.. I believe this one was 7 assignments to make the complete layout... so I didn't design it, I just followed directions.. the picture is mine.

    Flowerdisco, not sure what you'd like to know, feel free to email me if you have any questions. This particular class focused on a few different techniques... starting with making a photo sepia toned, then adding color to one item, next she walked us through the tearing paper effect and adding all the colored elements/patterned papers, also learned how to do the block journaling, and lastly how to add the distressed mask along the edges of the finished layout and change the color to match.

  6. Lorrie , you do such a great job with this! thanks for helping me with mine! you are a dear!
