By now y'all know I love palettes, and I'm in the enviable position to provide many palettes on a frequent basis. However, there is one palette I am stuck on.

I have a beautiful, wonderful, amazing friend who took care of me & my family as we were leaving the states. She is all a best friend can be. I want to create a kit just for her, but I am having trouble with the palette.

Now, I have a favorite t-shirt, I have a box of these favorite t-shirts (it helps having a t-shirt printing business in the family), and Lisa has one of these t-shirts. During first her move, then mine, we both wore this shirt on many occasions. I want this color in my palette. Sooooo.....

Round 2 Assignment:
Create a palette with this color:

http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/store/round2palette.jpg

The palette can be a minimum of 3 colors, up to as many as you wish. You must include the palette on the front of your kit preview (with or without hex codes); and in your zip files with the hex codes.

The theme is "Best Friends", but you may name your kit alternately if desired.



Requirements:
Please follow all the quality guidelines from Round 1 (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5720)
Develop a palette using ba3175 as one of the colors
Use the theme "Best Friends"
8 papers, 5 must be unique (read, not recolored)
12 elements, 8 must be unique (a clustered element using other elements may be considered unique)
Include the palette with hex codes in you zip files
You must post two previews; one regular, with palette, and one close-up
Preview size must be 72 DPI, 600X600
CU items are allowed this round
Post previews & links to downloads in the Round 2: 10SEP - 15SEP2009 gallery (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=978)
Voting will be done by registered SAS users, however please note that you may be disqualified by SAS for breaking any rules. This includes more than, or less than, the required items. It includes preview size. It includes missing the deadline. There are no exceptions this round.

Please, please, please be careful. Ask if you are unsure, we are more than happy to help you. You may also check the FAQ (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5728). Check the Official SAS Time (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/forum/announcement.php?f=150).

Round 2 kit will be due September 15, 2009 by 3:00 pm EST.
Round 2 voting will go up after all kits are submitted.
Round 2 results will be posted September 18, 2009.

Good luck!

You may have word art, but it is not a requirement. Up to you what elements you choose to have.

Smooches,

The first round is so nerve-wracking, especially for first time contestants, I want to have a little bit of a heart. I will not name names in my List of Doom, but hopefully everyone will recognize themselves and take extra care in round two.

This list will be public and everone, passing on or not, will be able to see and learn.

hot German firemen!!

I could live without the fire alarm, but the firemen are a very nice treat for those nerves after being woken up like that.

Love the color pink, can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Good luck to you all! ;)

Maybe a silly question - but not risking disqualification over not asking! Any rules on using metals this round?

Toiny
09-10-2009, 01:07 PM
Good question! You may use metals... since you are developing the palette, include a metal in your palette that covers all our bases.

Smooches,

Toiny

Yes, the file size should not exceed 40mb :)

A suggestion for next year - don't rely strictly on popular vote. Although bringing in the crowds are a part of a designers life, it is only a part. Working with a team and creating a quality product are also part.

one contest I was in last year had points for 4 sections:
- downloads (popularity)
- posts (working the boards)
- quality check/following directions
- I forget the 4th

Might be a bit more work, but will display more rounded designers.

Asking here too...

09-10-2009, 07:26 PM
Ok after reading the boo boo list, the 40 MB file size is for each element, correct. Not the total kit in a zip file? When you say file I think the whole kit. Just want to clarify so I don't mess this up, I cut my last kit to get the total thing under 40 MB, boy was that hard.

Thanks

I asked this somewhere else (with someone else!) and it's each zip file has to be under 40mb and you can have more than one zip file. I'm glad I'm not the only one worried about the rules! :o

Question. As long as the kit deals with 'best friends' does the title have to have the word friend in it? Can it be a title that refers to friendship without the word friend in it? Just want to be sure, because I really like the name I chose, and I usually pick a name first and work from that. It's the only way I can stay on task and not go in 20 different directions.

As long as the Theme is Best Friends you can name it whatever you like :)
That's what Toiny meant when she said "or you can name it alternately if desired"

Woah, you are all quick off the mark! So far, I have made all the papers and about half the elements, and am hoping to get it finished tonight although having to pick my daughter up from the train station (once she actually informs me what time her train is...!!!!) will probably put a stop to those plans ;). Even if I get it finished, I probably won't be able to post anything until tomorrow.

I just finished uploading new links to my kit, Between You and Me. I forgot to add the program I used in my TOU, but it is in there now. I also uploaded just the TOU. I also put a link to just the new TOU for those who already downloaded the kit if that is ok, if not I will remove it and put it on my blog with a link to my blog. Please let me know if it's ok or not.

Thanks

That's exactly what I did last round - made the same mistake, fixed it the same way, was told its OK :-)

My kit made it into the gallery after 24 hours of no internet. I was sooooo scared I'd miss the deadline...
comments and criticism very much apreciated!

OK the download link is posted in my preview in the gallery. Don't know what happened to the original link? I had to correct the preview picture so I guess when I did that the link disappered. It should all be correct now, I hope. LOL:):)

I just uploaded my preview. As I said in the comments, My husband just left for Iraq thursday and I caught a nasty cold so instead of designing, I was in the recliner with some tissues and a blanket all weekend :( Good things are though, my cold is almost completely gone, and my husband is safely in Kuwait. Enjoy the kit!

There is still over 7 hours to the deadline for voting, but my hopes are gone as I am too far from the top or even from the middle.
It has been a great experience to be able to try my hands on designing and I will probably continue.
I wish you all good luck, especially those going to round 3!!!!
