I got the first question, when you have the moon as a theme, do we have to do that too?

Breeza
09-08-2012, 09:25 AM
Wowsers, this sounds tough! Awesome inspiration photo....I can see so many pallet options, can't wait to see what you all come up with!!! Good luck!! ♥

oooo, I may have to play along with this one, too! Beautiful inspiration photo, I am totally inspired! Good luck all! Can't wait to see this weeks entries!!

I also have a question: Alphas.... they count as 1 element, correct? Figured I can't be the only one wondering about that :DD

manu79
09-08-2012, 10:14 AM
Oh yes.... great photo... let me put me thinking cap on for this one :)

manu79

Toiny, sorry, but either I am too excited or too blind and can't read something about it... question: do you want us to include the palette in the preview or zip we make out of the photo, too?

Toiny
09-08-2012, 10:42 AM
Answer: yes, your theme must be something moon.

Answer: yes, an alpha is one element.

Answer: yes, please include the palette you create on your preview.

09-08-2012, 12:07 PM
Oh, my goodness, Manu! I was all set to be stunned and impressed. :)

I think I've got my colors and theme picked. Mostly anyway. Still need a title.

Can we use a title that got used in the first round? Can we end up with the same title as someone else this round?

Susanne79
09-08-2012, 12:40 PM
Question #2, do it have the be exactly the colors or can I tweak them (=lighten or darken) them?

Never mind - I zoomed in to 1600% spend an hour and finally got some colors that suits me :XX Please remember this when you are voting :DD since they donīt look like they came from the photo :grrr:

*hehehe* Did I shock you? Not my intention ;)I'm not that fast and I will be happy when I get it done this weekend.
I have my colors, my theme, my title and just hope I don't overestimate myself with it *lol*

Answer: It's your palette, you may create it how you like. The photo is inspiration, you do not have to use exact colors.

No Emiline, you just need to name the designers unless they specifically ask you to name something ie the brushes.

Answer: yes, your theme must be something moon.

Answer: yes, an alpha is one element.

Answer: yes, please include the palette you create on your preview.

I'm still peddling... getting there! We are off to the park this morning..(it looks like it's going to be a lovely day here today - finally!) to have a run around then hopefully I will get some peace & quiet this afternoon!

My 4yo loves looking at "his" photos - he even loves taking them! I'm lucky too, a supportive husband... not an artistic or creative bone in his body but at least he appreciates what I (try to) do! :)

Jeanette! your kit looks gorgeous! - speaking of... I'd better get back to it! lol! Ok.. I might peak in the gallery first! :) lol!

My husband has a degree in computer animation... Frankly, I thought that was going to be of much more service to me than it has been, LOL... But, he is very helpful when it comes time to pick a theme or color palette, he hates them all and has no better ideas, so then he agrees on which one is the least awful, lol...

Huggles!!

Well, time to get a couple of hours of rest before I have to get up for the day!

Well, in that case.......... does he have a clone? ;) :DD :l

kimberkatt
09-11-2012, 08:12 AM
LOL @ Sarah! I can see that! I sometimes look at color palettes and go "Good Lord, that's ugly!" and then I start to utilize it and discover that I actually like it! :)) :DD

Jill - my husband HATES me being on the computer when he comes home from work... but I just ignore him! :l lol, really, I do love him and try not to be "working" when he's around, he's like a child and needs that attention! ;) :DD

jimmyrose
09-11-2012, 10:39 AM
I've been married 40 years (41 in Jan.) and mine is still a child that needs attention. I thought that when my children were grown and gone, I was done with raising. Oh well, I've been wrong before. But, my husband does love to look at my scrapping. He always says that he will wait for me to print it out and put it into the albums. If I show him something on the computer he says - that's great, I love it. But I don't think he has even looked at it. If I ask about something on the page he says he has not really looked. He wants to wait for the print out. So I tell him - go buy me 12x12 photo paper!

LOL @ Sarah! I can see that! I sometimes look at color palettes and go "Good Lord, that's ugly!" and then I start to utilize it and discover that I actually like it! :)) :DD

Jill - my husband HATES me being on the computer when he comes home from work... but I just ignore him! :l lol, really, I do love him and try not to be "working" when he's around, he's like a child and needs that attention! ;) :DD

OMG! Mine is the same way....drives me bananas! Big baby!

Well, in that case.......... does he have a clone? ;) :DD :l

I told him you're interested in his skills and he said "how does she look like and where does she live?" :O If you can live with that kind of humor each day I can look if I can send you a clone *roflmao* :))

And now let me finally finish my kit - 1 more paper and 4-5 elements... I see the light at the end of the tunnel :)

Quick question, I just want to make sure I'm reading the instructions correctly. Regarding the elements my understanding is that we must have at least 24 unique eles, does that mean more is ok if we choose to add more than 24 (unique or not). Also for the papers it say 3 must be solids, does that mean at least 3 and more if we like or only 3 can be solids and the rest must be something other then solids. Also it says at least 10 papers so can we have more than 10? I think I know what I'm doing but I want to make sure as I wrap this up. :)

Great entries so far ladies!! I can't wait to see the rest of them!

I believe it has to be exactly that. I know that some designers added a bit more in their downloads, but did not include them in their previews. I think your preview has to be exactly what the instructions asked for. But let's see if another more "veteran" designer will confirm that as well!

I guess I'm confused because last round the terms used were exactly and this time it says at least.

Thank yor for checking for me. I'm almost done and I may just submit what I have and see what happens.

I am having a hard time with my preview though and that is not a good sign.

LOL...I didn't realize there were that many "at leasts" I only saw "at least 3 solids"

I did 10 papers and 24 elements and had a heck of a time once I got my palette and title! I thought I'd never get finished!!

I had a hard time with this one a bit too and it ended up somewhat similar to my last week entry, sorta. I don't know how that happened. :l:confused:
I just decided to go with what I have since I don't have time to work on this tomorrow and I don't want to miss the deadline. :);)
I hope I didn't mess up too bad but this has been fun anyway!:((

Oh, Jill! I love you little WooHoo dancer! :D Must have! :D

I came home from very long weekend out of town today. I thought that I'd be able to get some work done on the drive. Turns out the sun was on my laptop screen for a good part of that erstwhile work time. :( So I'm a bit more behind that I thought I'd be. But I only have 10 more elements to get done and another paper. Then the preview. I like to have plenty of time to keep looking at the preview for things that stand out as odd. I don't think I'll have that kind of time this time. :( Oh, well. I'm loving this either way. And I don't ever seem to get any work done without a deadline breathing down my back LOL

Toiny, thanks for making these just long enough to get stuff done but not so long that I'll procrastinate. :D

Some amazing kits already, gang. Beautiful stuff.

answer: At least means at least, so YES there can be more. I did not want to limit creativity.

answer: Everything in the kit must be on the preview. So if you include 3 recolors of everything, include those on the preview.

You are welcome. It took a little trial & error to get timing right, but I think we're finally in good groove with this.

There should be an EDIT button on the top right (I hope it's not there only for admin LOL).

There will be only one winner for the CAMEO & Designer contract. However, the second & third place winners will be offered guest spots (month long) as well as GC to theStudio.

Is that what you meant?

Pretty much done. I'm going to go back through the rules and make sure that I got everything covered. :D Don't want to miss out because I forgot to dot an "i" :p
I'm also periodically looking at my preview to make sure that I like it. Then it will all go up. :D

Thank you, again. I'll look through the other kits and comment once I'm done with mine. But I have glanced. I'm amazed and honored to be among such stupefyingly talented individuals (and the occasional helping hubby ;) )
