I love your computer tutorials. You have taught me SO much! Thank you.
I just googled "slicing photos" and picslice.com came up. Looks like it's an online app that doesn't need installing or paying for! Has anyone tried it?
I loved the idea of the cover and end pages for project life. I'm not a project lifer myself as the idea of daily organization just overwhelms me,instead I use the PL insert and use them for special occasions when I might have multiple photos! I loved the colors and the sliced up picture!
Thanks so much Melissa. I love your videos. They are all so informative. I go back to them time and time again. I swapped from Photoshop to Lightroom after one of your videos. Am now totally converted (although I do still use photoshop and indesign for some things). I appreciate you sharing your ideas and so generously giving your time to put together the videos.
Yes I like your front page - I too would like to know if there is something similar to slice up the photo for a PC.
Video - Project Life : Confessions of a Cover Page Failure
Hello and happy Saturday, everyone! I'm so excited to be back with you for this week's installment of Project Life at Two Peas in a Bucket.
In today's video I'm 'fessing up about my Project Life cover pages- or, more precisely, the lack thereof. You see, I love filling up the weeks in my albums, but I always seem to leave the first and last pages bare. Since I had a few requests to talk about this very subject in a video, I decided this would be a great week to do that!
I've also had several questions about using digital brushes in Photoshop, and in the first part of the video I'll cover the very basics of that, along with tips for using the PNG images included in the Two Peas digital cut file packages as digital stamps, as well.
Several of the ideas for what to do to fill in weeks where you don't have a lot of photos work well for beginning and ending pages, too, and I'll take a closer look at one in particular- using large photos- and show how to “fake” that look with a large image that's chopped into several 4x6s before it's sent off to be printed. You can also take a look at my other ideas from a past video on filling photo-light weeks here.
Your challenge this week is to create either a beginning or ending page for one of your albums, whether Project Life or traditional, and upload it to the gallery.
Thanks so much for watching!
