NDC 2011: Round 2 "Summer Afternoon"
 
Congratulations again! That was a very tough challenge and you deserve an extra round of applause for moving on. The first round gave you a very difficult palette to work with, a very difficult kit to preview. This round that part is easier. You are being given a preview template, and you must use this preview template to preview your kit.





<FONT color=#231f20>You are also being given a name “Summer Afternoon”, which you must use as your kit name & title. Summer afternoon is also your kit theme. However, the palette is completely up to you! Let us see how a good palette makes the kit.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comhttp://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...lery: <A href=NDC 2011: Round 2 due September 12, 2011 by 23:59 EST.<o:p></o:p>Include your download links with your preview in the gallery.<o:p></o:p>
Links must be available until September 13, 2011. It is appreciated if they are available until October 1, 2011.


</UL>You may use commercial use/designer resource products in the creation of your mini-kit. You may use more than one photo-editing/vector program to create your kit. You may use plug-ins.

Please do not break any copyright laws in this competition--you will be disqualified if you do. Do give credit, as required, to any Commercial Use products you use.<o:p></o:p>

All previews must be posted in the Annual Next Designer Contest Gallery: NDC 2011: Round 2. Please post your download links there as well. You may use any outside host including 4shared/rapidshare/boxnet etc. You must use ZIP files only. Do not use RAR. You may blog all you like about the contest.<o:p></o:p>

Voting will be done by theStudio Design & Admin teams only.
Round 2 kit will be due September 12, 2011 by 23:59 EST.
Round 2 results will be posted September 15, 2011 by 6:00 am EST.

I have worked hard to make these rules as clear and easy to understand as possible. However, if you have any questions please post here or PM me. I will take all questions and create a separate round 2 FAQ for everyone to benefit (I will leave your name off).

Good luck!

Toiny <o:p></o:p>

wonderful challenge, TYSM Toiny, but I have a question, only one little confusion:

You are also being given a name “Summer Afternoon”, which you must use as your kit name & title. Summer afternoon is also your kit theme. However, the palette is completely up to you! Let us see how a good palette makes the kit.

The preview template does not include a template for the kit title, part of your challenge is to make a fantabulous, eye-catching kit title. I have to say, with every kit I make this is always one of my biggest challenge.


The tittle of the kit must be “Summer Afternoon”, so when you say here:
part of your challenge is to make a fantabulous, eye-catching kit title
, you are talking about a second tittle ?
OMG, I think you are talking about the font, the way the tittle should be expose?
did I understand it right?
TYSM, hugs, Karen...and sorry for asking

Re: NDC 2011: Round 2 "Summer Afternoon"
 
Hmmm let me try to answer this Karen.

The kit name is : Summer Afternoon. On a preview, when you add the kit name, this is the title. I want to see how good you make the "Summer Afternoon" words look on the preview.

Is that better?

Great template and information is very clear.

Re: NDC 2011: Round 2 "Summer Afternoon"
 
should we include our color swatch on the preview so you know we kept with the colors?

and also - alpha counts as 1 element, right?

Re: NDC 2011: Round 2 "Summer Afternoon"
 
oh boy this has me worried since in my head i've already moved on to fall for designing lol i hope i can figure out something and find time to complete it! good luck girls!

Re: NDC 2011: Round 2 "Summer Afternoon"
 
There is no need to include your swatch on the preview. That is a matter of personal preference, not a requirement.

And, yes, an Alpha is 1 element.

It's 100 where I live today. Although I WISH I were thinking of Fall, Summer is still quite prominent in my mind - so a perfect challenge! ;)

Toiny: I have a question ...

Create exactly 6 papers, either jpg or png<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><o:p></o:p> Create 20 elements <o:p></o:p>
  • Include at least 1 cluster<o:p></o:p>
  • The cluster does not have to be unique
can we create more than 20 elements ?
if not, is the cluster #21 or one of the 20
assuming the 20 are to be unique like in challenge 1, true?
sorry to be kinda dense this morning

Another great challenge, and a new palette, also a good time for learning how to make colors work together. I'm excited!
