I'm still not sure what my theme will be ... I've started playing around with the patterns in Illustrator to see what I can come up with ... I think I'll go have glass of wine ...

What about Black and White? can we add those colors, or would that be our one color (choosing between one or the other?)

Wow this is going to be tough! I think I can swing the elements but I have never made a paper without a cu overlay, eek! I guess I'm going to have to reset my PS to standard textures and brushes. This should be interesting!

You must include the tools listed in your description.

^^^ Does this mean we need to have a list of our eles and papers
describing how we made each of them?

Like a list on notepad included in the download?

get to know your scanner -- there are LOTS of cool things that create fabulous texture digitally

Default Re: NDC 2012: Round 3 Challenge

and I thought of another question

As far as the palette, must we use all of the colors or may we select the ones we want to use and then add our additional one color to that?

From the Piggy Re: NDC 2012: Round 3 Challenge

ROFL! You guys crack me up! I took some notes & I'll try to answer the ones that are still left unanswered and/or need some clarification. Please bug me if it's still not clear:

answer: You may take photo's or scans and use those as extractions or textures. Be sure that the item you photograph or scan is allowed for commercial use.

answer: You may use a standalone program such as ArtRage. You may not use a plugin such as FilterForge. Yes, I know FilterForge can be used as a standalone, but it is primarily a plugin.

answer: You may use black or white as your additional, you may not use both as freebies.

answer: You may focus on only a few of the colors in the palette, you do not have to use them all.

answer: You must have your own additional color.

answer: You may use lighter & darker variations of the palette colors

Note: we will be looking very closely at the color integrity of your recolored items. I want to see you use the CU items. I want to see how well you can recolor and match it to the palette. Getting too creative here could wind up hurting you in the end.

I had an awesome birthday! Thank you all for the well wishes & the patience while I disappeared during those critical hours. And a very big thank you to my team for stepping up & answering your questions very well.

SMOOCH!

You are right. I used "may". My intention was to see how well you can a complimenting color but I did say may. My apologies.
