Week 1: Palette & Papers
 
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
  • 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:

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.

Question Regarding Pallet (?)
 
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.

Re: Question Regarding Pallet (?)
 
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!

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.
