From the Piggy Re: NDC 2011: Round 2 "Summer Afternoon"

Hi Anita, no worries! I need two pots of coffee to get me going...

I left it a little vague so people could make it more their own. But what I mean is:
  • At least 20 elements, including the cluster (so maybe 19 + 1 would be better?)
  • You may have more, it is not required
  • They do not need to be unique
  • You can use a button, a flower and then layer that button & flower for a 3rd element.
  • You may recolor 1 button, 6 different times & that can be part of your 20 (but I wouldn't recommend that)
A little better?

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

The way i *read* this, was that it was part of the 20, and that it was 20 elements, didn't specify that they all had to be unique.

What's the Verdict?

hehe! posted at the same time thanks for the super clarification! ♥

On the part about recoloring - I agree with Toiny, recoloring the same button several times is not very appealing. If you want to offer a red, green, and blue button, make them a little different, one square, one round, one with some polka dots etc. It gives variety and choice of color at the same time. That's my tip for the day LOL

Could somebody define cluster for me? I think of a cluster as 3-4 elements (simple elements or layered elements) together when I scrap.

When I design, I think of a layered piece...such as a frame with flowers on it or a flower, button, leaves & string making a more complex flower element...

Yes. LOL. A cluster is several elements composing a more complex element. Frequently a frame, but also borders, corners, page spray's or even just a flower swag.

You can see good, varied examples, in our "cluster" section of the store:

Kaklei you're putting us to shame...weren't you first last time? ...well nothing wrong with being first least you couldn't be accused of copying lol

Love the name and summer aaah bliss we're coming out of a very long cold wet winter and the spring buds are starting to show so that means summer is only just around the corner...just hope it's not our usual stinker

Got me pallette and all the questions I had have now been answered too thanks Toiny I don't need to ask now off now to get stuck into it

Oops shouldn't have said that about copyingi lol coz I just looked at what kaklei has created and my pallette is very similar...and no I didn't copy it picked mine last night...truly wooly

Liz off course you can and tailz, I didn't think of that, sorry Toiny...but they are just colors that I take out from very known images of the web, so...is not that I blended and created colors. But I did that in my own palette, I took colors from 4 different images, all from seasides in my country from last summer, at the beginning I had like 20 colors and didn't want to get rid of any of them, you know you get so paranoid , I know I do, and then I started taking out until I had 9 pastels which was what I wanted, I wanted pale pastels and a very shiny green in mine, so I guess I finally made it, but if you ask me, Summer is not my favorite season to design about, I love the green, the foliage,the flowers (I am a huge fan of creating flowers, love, love flowers) but I adore grays, and teals, pale colors or golds and browns from autumn, when I design in strong colors, I am out of my comfort zone, and is very scary.

Well, I just uploaded it. I have the hardest time pressing that submit button. I keep thinking, what if I made a mistake, maybe I should change something, add something. Yikes. I thought it would get easier over time, but it doesn't seem to.
