It is time for Round 3 of our NDC. For you, for the Second Chance Contest (SCC) it is Round 2. You are getting the exact same challenge, and it is the toughest round.

This round is our No CU round. Everything must be created by you, whether by camera, scanner, hand, computer or a combination of all. You may use any tools that came with your computer or with your photo-editing software. You may not use plug-ins (eye candy, filter forge, art rage, etc.)

We are originally a heritage, genealogy scrapbooking site, and we still have some lovely vintage products perfect for those preserving those memories. It is no longer all we are, but this round our theme gives a nod to both our heritage and contest theme. This week you will create a mini kit around “The Evening News” and your palette core is provided.

It is up to you to add a splash of color to the palette. In keeping in the spirit of this theme, I strongly encourage vintage hues.

Thanks again for the second chance.

Your instructions are quite clear as usual. Thank you. I do have one question, to be sure. I'll be doing some extracting for this and need to know if it's okay to extract from photos that were gifted to me. I was thinking that this would be okay, but had to ask to be sure. :-)

also - last round someone said we could use stuff we already used. I have some materials that I have created and used in a collab and a kit that fits the theme. Otherwise off to the scanner.

Hi guys!

Let me see if I can get it all in one fell swoop...

It needs to be within the theme "Evening News"
It is not required to be vintage
Anyone not officially moving on may of course design! But please do not post in the official Round 2 gallery.
Photo's that belong to you "gift", may be used for your extractions.
You may use your own CU creations, new or old
HTH's!

One quick question.... if I made some glitters previously using art rage... am I still allowed to use them here?

Toiny
09-15-2011, 01:34 PM
This is conflicting. No? I said no on Art Rage but yes on your CU.

I'm going to stick with No. And qualify the ruling on your own CU as... your own CU not created with plugins (incl. Art Rage).

I'm sorry Angel.

Question? Can we still put bevel/emboss on elements since it is part of CS2? Not sure if you consider that a plug-in? Thanks Toiny for the great challenge! My brain has been chugging along all morning!

Oh yeah, almost forgot.. Congratulations to everyone who has participated thus far! You can tell people have been putting their hearts into their work and it shows! Great job everyone! What a way to have a party!

Toiny

Yep. Thats part of your program. Not a plugin.

ok... I am definately learning more and more about ps which keeps making me change my mind about my elements. I have changed my elements like 3 times now because I haven't liked how they meshed together. Hopefully after a good nights sleep I can make 3 more that doesn't make me change the rest. Thank you for the challenge.
