Hi all!

This is for F-U-N... and a couple prizes :D

You may do this week only, only next week, all the weeks, it is up to you. Each week is a contest in and of itself. This means each week there will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner. There are no eliminations!

Note: Once you pick your palette (yes, you pick your palette), this will be your palette for the entire contest. Regardless of which week, or weeks, you participate in.

Most Important Note: To qualify for the Grand Prize of a Wacom Bamboo you must participate in all 4 weeks.

Are you ready?

Week 1: Palette & Papers

April brings us not only Easter but also the Royal Wedding. I remember the absolute spell I was under with Princess Di's wedding. I'm fairly excited with Will & Kate's wedding as well. The theme for everyone will be Wedding. This theme will the theme for the entire contest.

Wedding season is rolling around in the States and your designs are sure to catch the eye of many brides-to-be. Or, ahum, procrastinators like myself who are still not done with their wedding album years, even decades, later.




Your assignment for Week 1:

Choose a palette (a minimum of 3 colors up to 5 million).
You do not have to share the palette on your preview. But you may.
Use the theme: Wedding
12 papers. No more, no less.
Due date: Thursday April 7 at midnight (EST)
You must post your preview in the Week 1: Spring Fling Design Contest (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1234-week-1-3a-spring-fling-design-contest.html)
Preview size is standard 600X600 @72dpi
You must provide download links (4shared, boxnet, rapidshare, etc.).
You may blog, blog, blog!
Voting is done exclusively by the Admin & Design Team at theStudio
That's it! This is for fun, we are not QC'ing you. Still, do remember to include a TOU with your zip files. Do remember to credit the CU artists who helped you design your products.

Remember the palette (your choice) and theme: Wedding (my choice) are for the duration of this contest.

A little inspiration:

http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/images/board.jpg (http://table6productions.com/) http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/images/tiffanybluelightaquaweddingcolors4.jpg (http://www.mypersonalartist.com/colorpalette.html) http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/images/goldenrod1.jpg (http://www.betsywhite.com/flightsoffancy/)

Each picture links back to the site I found it on, these are not mine, merely inspiration. There are a ton of wedding sites out there, many with amazing palettes (aka boards in wedding parlance). Feel free to be inspired or walk your own path.

So, let me get this straight (clarify), I choose one of these pictures above for my color pallet, or any picture @ that site or just any picture including the pictures that I personally have?

And we are just doing papers for this week? If that is the case I'm almost ready to roll with this.

Toiny
04-01-2011, 08:54 AM
You may pick absolutely any color palette you'd like. Whether from your pictures, my inspiration pictures or out of thin air. Just know that it will be the exact same palette for all the challenges in this contest.

Smooches,

Toiny

Interesting --- I can't find any of my disks so I got a Bamboo yesterday that included PSE8.0 - never used either one of these so this could be interesting & fun. (now I will find all of my computer disks since I went out and bought something -- isn't moving just grand, NOT).

I can't wait to see everyone's choice of palette and their papers!

Great color palette Cyndi!

Anyone is welcome to use some of all of the colors & create your own palate from it. I just put it together with some colors that I thought were good. A few colors look alike, so I will have to use the ones that do not look so much alike that they are the same colors.

I was kind of hoping this was a layout competition. Since last layout competition was held during a month when the chronic pain I deal with daily went bonkers, so I was unable to complete the layout challenge. I did ok on the first round, but the second round I couldn't get it together enough to finish on time. I want a do -over! lol It will be fun to see what the ladies cook up , though.

It is my understanding that this week is papers only....but hold on to those elements....because we are using the same palette all 4 weeks....so you will most likely get to use them yet!!!

Idea4u: You can always apply some of those elements as a soft pattern in the papers. Seamless Pattern Tutorial (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8505): check it out & see what I did for that challenge, & imagine what you can do with it. You can also make those patterns into a texture!!

Does anyone have the link to the gallery of where we are suppose to load our digital scrap kit for is? I knew when I saw it that I should of bookmarked it: I can't find the link, that someone posted & have probably overlooked it.

Many people get married in Hawaii, while we spend our honeymoon there for 3 wks. I added some Habiscus flowers into some of the patterned papers. Now, all I need to do is get it into the gallery, so that people can enjoy them.

I had a train removed from it and so I had the lace pieces off the excess on the train that the seamstress kept so I am teaching myself to extract lace now urgh! LOL

Oh the veil is mine too LOL It's on one of the papers as well. so much fun just playing along with no stress and doing the kit bit by bit is a great way to do it too.

Piggyscraps,
I have all 12 of my papers selected and the color palette that I will be using is the Preset Palette for Windows and the "Wedding" will be our wedding picture changed into a Vintage look. Then the elements (if we use them) will be the color section of the LO.
My problem is I don't know how to copy & email the palette colors or how to do the download link to 4 share, could you please email me and explain how I do this? I use PSE-5 program and have Windows 7 on my computer.
Hugs,
Marilyn Nay mnay01@att.net

Here is the link to my papers for the "Wedding" contest. I am going to use our wedding B/W picture and try to turn it into a Vintage LO and using colors for other elements to bring the Picture alive. I will be using the Windows Preset palette that has 126 colors in the Palette. I am not sure if I am doing this right or not. But no hurt in trying!!!
Here is the link to my Papers for Week 1:

Some really lovely papers already! I have mine done and uploaded to MediaFire but I can't upload to the gallery. Can anyone help me - it won't let me register (says I'm already registered). Won't let me in using the pw and username I have. Also won't send me my pw so I can check if I'm not spelling something right or what. AARRGGHH! Can you tell I'm frustrated????? HELP ME!PLEASE!! Maybe I'll try registering under an assumed name, lol :confused:

scrappingdax the gallery sometimes won't let you post a layout till you have a post count of at least 5 so I have fixed that for you. See if you can post your papers now hun.
Not sure about the letting you register, you are registered with the name scrappingdax and you are posting here so that is confusing me, or do you mean in the gallery? Just sign into the forum then click on gallery in the header to see if you see an upload button then.

Hopefully you'll be okay now :)

Marilyn I just emailed you about how to upload to 4 shared, you must zip your file up first with a tou and preview. then upload the zip file to your 4shared account :)
sorry for the delay in answering your question hun.

Piggyscraps,
I have all 12 of my papers selected and the color palette that I will be using is the Preset Palette for Windows and the "Wedding" will be our wedding picture changed into a Vintage look. Then the elements (if we use them) will be the color section of the LO.
My problem is I don't know how to copy & email the palette colors or how to do the download link to 4 share, could you please email me and explain how I do this? I use PSE-5 program and have Windows 7 on my computer.
Hugs,
Marilyn Nay mnay01@att.net

OOOF, it's been forever since I even scrapped, and sooo long since I designed anything! I'm not sure I've ever posted here in these forums. BUT I got a Facebook invite and just felt like playing along!
Here goes nothing! At this point I'm really sick of looking at my palette, and I feel like it has zero pizazz...

Does anyone know why I can't see so many of the palette's people have posted? It must be my computer, because everyone else seems to see the palettes. But I see people say "Here is my palette:" but I see no palette. Any ideas? I wanted to make sure my palette wasn't the same/too similar to others, but I just can't see them.

Wow: I like how you made this color palette, it reminds me of eye shadow: L.O.L. I suppose that is the effect you wanted!! I'll have to make myself one of these. Unless you have a template, I can use(?). I love the shades of colors you've chosen!!

There are so many nice sets of papers, i feel unworthy, since i only have a few layout under my belt and very little technical knowledge. i've been wanting to scan my wedding stuff to do something with it but i didn't even think about participating until this afternoon. i've been debating the whole time if i should even try... i've put it all together, since i'm here. if i'm too late, i guess that's what i get for making a last minute decision.

here's my swatch
