so - same question as last year ...
If I make a scene paper - which the topic lends itself to easily - do I count it as solid or pattern or save it for later?

so excited, such great prizes!! started, probably will over produce and have a difficult time selecting "the best"

That is a pattern, maybe not a repetitive pattern like polka dots, but still a pattern.

Smooch!

You can go lighter or darker in the same shade. You can add black or white. That's it. I want to see how well you use these colors to make your kit shine

It depends on if you use a pattern too. A Monochromatic paper can be either depending on what you do with it! If the paper includes a pattern, I would classify it as patterned, if it's simply a textured paper then it's a solid.

So here I am confused already LOL.... The palette I'm looking at shows 15 colors. But when I downloaded & loaded the ACO file (PSE11), I'm looking at 16 swatches.. (named Swatch 370 through Swatch 385)...

What have I messed up already?????????

I just DL'd and installed the .aco in PSE11 as well, and it looks like white is coming up as the first color - I'm not sure if this is normal or not. But all 15 colors are there (plus a white swatch). Helpful?

So is that "the" white we're supposed to be using?

No, I think PS might have just plopped it in there - you can use the basic black/white if that's not what it is!

"The preview must include all papers, elements, kit name and your logo."

This is my first designing contest so please excuse the newbie questions. I don't have a blog or a logo so will this be a problem, since the rules say that a logo should be on the preview. Thank you! Kate

A logo is just your (designer) name brought in a recognizable shape. People should know YOU made the kit and remember you when they see another kit from you. Does that make sense / help?
