YOUR ASSIGNMENT


Create a SINGLE 12X12 LAYOUT using as much of the kit as you can to promote it as much as possible, whilst still keeping your page, including shadows and layers, BALANCED AND EYECATCHING. By Shadows I mean they should be consistent, all in the same direction and relative to the distance off the page that particular element is.
NO use of templates or sketches or other wordart or elements are allowed, the only thing you can use is the kit and your photos and fonts/own handwriting.
So your credits should only need to be to Mistybelle Designs - Autumn's Kiss
Post your layout in the Week 1 Gallery then post the url link from the address bar here in this thread so that we know you have posted and can go leave you some love.

(note: you have to have at least 5 posts in the forum to post a layout in the gallery)You can do as many layouts as you wish but doing more than one layout will also mean any votes you get will be for the layout not for you as a contestant, so keep that in mind. More layouts may mean less votes for you in the poll in the long run.


POST DEADLINE : MIDNIGHT EST SATURDAY 4th September

POST YOUR LAYOUT IN THE LAYOUT ARTIST COMPETITION WEEK 1 GALLERY (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1151).

POLL FOR VOTING : will go up in a separate thread just after MIDNIGHT EST SATURDAY NIGHT

POLLING CLOSES : Midnight est on Tuesday 7th September

ALL STUDIO MEMBERS CAN VOTE IN THIS ROUND


45 contestants will go on to round 2
A new thread with those who will be going on and the new week 2 assignment will be posted on WEDNESDAY 8th September ALL CONTESTANTS MOVING ON IN THE CONTEST WILL RECEIVE THE KIT BY PM MESSAGE.



A FEW MORE RULES

ALL VOTING POLLS ARE OPEN TO THE STUDIO MEMBERS ONLY - THE FINAL VOTE IS ONLY OPEN TO STUDIO DESIGNERS AND ADMIN.

No offering freebies or any other incentives for votes
You can blog about the competition and you can have a banner or blinkie or such in your signature to advertise that you are a contestant
You can have "Please vote for Me" in your signature or banner/blinkie or on your blog just don't offer anything in return for votes in the poll.

Once you have uploaded your 'official' entry for the week you are not to edit it in any way once it's been uploaded to the gallery.



GOOD LUCK LADIES :) CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR CREATIVITY SHINE IN THE GALLERY!!

quick question. are we allowed to use templates or sketches to create the layouts? just making sure of the rules...

Mitsybelle
09-01-2010, 03:32 AM
I don't think it would be against the rules but really we would like to see 'your' work :) let's see if Tracy agrees with this too :)

Ambowife Designs

I agree that using templates or sketches is probably an unfair advantage so NO no use of templates or sketches, the only thing you can use is the kit and your photos and fonts.
So your credits should only need to be to Mistybelle Designs - Autumn's Kiss

I'll add that to the rules up top too, thanks for asking, and for thinking of that :)

09-01-2010, 07:44 AM
Am I allowed to use premade word art (without other embellies on it, of course, just photoshopped), or are we to use only fonts? Example: my word art says, Adorable, and looks metallic. Nothin' too fancy, lol, but it isn't from your kit!

Ambowife Designs
09-01-2010, 07:49 AM
Kelly no sorry hun, only font or your own handwriting (like when you use a tablet and digital pen) otherwise it's all got to be from the kit.

ok so can we use the papers from the kit to make an alpha? and/or if we just use fonts can we make our own wordart?

I would imagine you can use the pieces in the kit to create whatever you need for your layout... just no pre-made elements outside of the kit.... so if you take the papers and make a frame or alpha with them, that should be okay... I'm hoping they say YES to making your own WA, a layouts gotta have a title/some journaling, right?!?! Because, I can't survive if I don't add a big, chunky title in my pages!!! LOL!!!

Of course, I'm not one of the two Scrappy Warlords of the contest... they could handcuff me and throw me in Scrapper's Jail for insolence & mis-information!!!! :l

I'm sorry. I have another question. Do I need to re-size my layout to upload to the gallery? I know it says the layout needs to be 12 by 12 but I've noticed other places say in order to upload it has to be 600 by 600 pixels.

Jacque
09-01-2010, 11:40 AM
if i'm correct the 12X12 is for your actual kit. the 72dpi and 600X600 is for the preview.

Correct! After you have made your full-size 12X12, 300dpi layout, you should resize the entire page down to 600X600 pixels at 72dpi to upload to the gallery... if you try to upload an image larger than this, it will get stuck in your queue in the gallery and you will not be able to upload again until one of the admin staff goes in and clears it out for you.

If using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, the easiest way to do this is to use the "Save for Web" function under the FILE menu - you will get a pop up box that says something about the file size being too big for this function, just click on YES and it will bring you to the save for web screen - once you change the numbers on the right, just click save/done at the bottom and you're all set! :)

I am so happy I managed to find the time to complete my layout.. It was looking really bad, but then then neighbors nephew (for no reason) threw a rock at our van, completely blew out the side van window (hence it is undrivable, except to the repair shop). SO now I am stuck at home missing work, and got the time to finish my layout!!

Here is my layout (image is linked):

i have a question. i know we have answered the question about no templates. but what if i have a template for cutting out shapes in the paper. can i use that or do i have to keep the paper the shape it is. example: a heart or an apple (no that's not what i have LOL )

Ambowife Designs
09-02-2010, 05:23 PM
Hmm well I guess using just shapes is okay, that is just the same as using a shape that came with your program to crop a paper so yes Jacque

I am so happy I managed to find the time to complete my layout.. It was looking really bad, but then then neighbors nephew (for no reason) threw a rock at our van, completely blew out the side van window (hence it is undrivable, except to the repair shop). SO now I am stuck at home missing work, and got the time to finish my layout!!


So how much did it cost to hire the kid with the rock? I never would have thought of that. ;):l

Then I decided to add journaling and since we can't change it once it's entered I only put it in my personal gallery (and Mitsybelle's of course). Didn't want one of the Warlords to catch me cheating. :D
Here's that one

Hey Jeanette...It wasn't my van that got the rock..it was tj7933's van. I was joshing her about it. Unless her name is Barb too????....

Man, it was hard enough learning everyone's real name other than their username and now we have all these 007 identities sneaking around playing pranks on us old 'challenged' folks....think I'm going to join Liz in a drink or two.

Here's mine; I'll be honest, I could have used this kit for so many different pics I have, I love the feel of it... So much so, that I thought I would make a few and choose one, but with the death and funeral this week, that won't be happening - I'm just glad to get it posted! What I'm trying to say is, This is a great kit, Jeanette, and I really don't think I was able to do it justice this week. But thank you, thank you, so much for your hard work and generosity.

Now I'm off to make chicken salad for after the funeral...

Last Night.....I'm here...I'm here! I have been having some trouble with my program. I have the layout ready,but I can't get it to save. I've got to save it first before I can resize it and then upload it to the sight. I have been working on this for a while,but I just realized that it is 10:51 pm central time and can't remebr if you go by central or eastern time. Please don't
disqualify me!! I'm here,but something is going on with my prgram or pc,hold on. Ok ...I am going to restart everything and see if that helps. I'll have to post it in the gallery and put the link in here,so please give me some time to figure everything out. Ok?? I will post my page in the post . Thank you!

Today..... Whoopie! I got my layout uploaded but not until 5 pm today. Darn, most of the voting is over by now and since you can't "re- vote" once you cast your ballot,hmmmmm... Oh nuts! I hope I scrape up enough votes to move to round 2. I looked around at everyone's layouts a few minutes ago and they look great. Were we supposed to use as much of the kit as we could in our layouts? I may have read the instructions the wrong way,but I thought we were supposed to, so I almost used the whole kit. I would have used the whole kit if,I hadn't run out of time. Well here it is
