Challenge Announcements

Welcome to the August Digi Dish Challenge. Are you ready to do some digiscrap baking?

Ack! I’m late posting! I am currently travelling around Europe and so my access to the Internet has not been brilliant but better late than never:)

For this challenge, you should create a layout using at least the ingredients listed on the recipe. You can then add your own ingredients to make the layout your own! There is also a “Want More?” ingredient and an “optional” ingredient to add a little more to the recipe. They are both optional but are fun:) So, what are we waiting for?

Here is the recipe!

August 2014 PROGRESSIVE Scrap Challenge
Welcome to the AUGUST Progressive Challenge.
Ginger here, of Gingers Scraps N Pixels, as we gear up for the ending of summer vacation and Back To School for the kiddo it’s time once again for the August Progressive Scrap entitled

“Sweet and Salty”

The  contributors for this months Progressive are, Vicki of Dana’s Footprint Digital Design & Darlene of  Studio4 Designworks.
So let’s get to the task at hand and have some fun! The object of the Progressive is to complete one page over the course of three weeks by following instructions given in tasks posted each week. A progressive scrap is a *slow* speed scrap and I know lots of you like speed scraps, but may not have the time. So here’s how it will work.

On the first of each month, Prompt 1 will be posted, consisting of instructions for starting a scrapbook page that will then be built upon through additional instructions every 3 days.

The idea is to work along with the challenge as the tasks are being announced, each task to be completed & posted prior to starting on the next prompt. (Once you post a prompt’s results, you’re finished. Don’t change your work for that particular prompt.)
At the end of the third week, you should have a completed page!
It’s fine to start late or catch up if you miss a prompt. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one. It’s more fun that way!
I will be giving you a download that consists of either papers or ellies to work with on each prompt. By the end of the Challenge, you will have a great little kit that was created by myself and Vicki of Dana of Dana’s Footprint Designs & Darlene of Studio 4 Designworks.

——————————————————————————
So to recap – here’s the order:
1. On the first day of the month we will post Prompt 1. Then, there will be a post every three days with a new prompt.
2. Add only the items listed in the prompt given. You may add/alter shadows at any time.
3. Once you’ve posted your layout for that particular prompt, it is done and you may not go back and change it. You may only build on the previous prompt layout following the new step for the next prompt.
4. We will post the prompts sequentially in the thread. If you have missed a prompt, it’s fine to start late or catch up. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one.
5. Post your layouts no later than midnight (EST) of the day before the next step is due – this will be every three days.
6. Post your layouts in the *Progressive Challenge* gallery HERE.
7. Link your layout back to this forum thread so we can have a look at your creations and leave you some love!
8. In lieu of a posting bonus, by the end of the challenge, you will have yourselves a nice little kit.
9. This challenge counts towards the Scrapping 7 Challenge!

Here is the kit you will have by the time you are done – “Sweet and Salty” It coordinates with the lovely collab the designers have created this month along with Posting Bonuses for other challenges. You will have a lovely HUGE kit when you are done if you participate in all of the challenges!

So swing on by and join the fun …. We’ll see you there!

 

PROMPT 1 

Friday, August 1st

Zip 1 has eight papers. Choose one as your background, and using the other 7 make one piece  of any shape, using each paper only once. These will need to be grouped together as we will be adding 3 photographs.

It’s Marcie from Designs by Marcie with this month’s Multiphoto Challenge.  If your like me, you have found very little time to be on the computer this summer!  The kids have just monoplied me!  I can hardly believe that its August already and school will be starting soon for some of us.  We are one of the few lucky ones that do not start till September!   Go US!!!

For this challenge, I’m requiring you to make a layout using at least 4 photos.  It can be more, but not less than 4.  I am also requiring that you have it be about your favorite vacation or get away.  Get creative and think outside the box because your favorite get away may not actually be on a vacation.  It can be something you can do daily to get away from all the hubbub.  A friend told me that her favorite get away was her bathroom!  She could not make a call or get peace and quite while being with her young children, therefore she took the phone to the bathroom, locked herself in, and made those important calls or took a few minutes to herself.  I did ask what happened with the kids?  She said she put them in the playroom and had a monitor with her.  She could still hear if there was an issue and take care of it.  Whew!  I was worried there.  For her that was her favorite get away, because all moms know that on vacation your still on call.  :)

Rules….
(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the Scrappin’7 Challenge.
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Multiphoto Gallery HERE
(5) Come back here and post what you created, and link it to the gallery, so we can all leave you some love!
(6) HAVE FUN!

Do you all know how to link your images back to the gallery? .. If not, have a look HERE

Also… here’s how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the designer.

Let’s see how creative you are and have fun!

At the end of the month, everyone will get this participation prize.

Hi! Dani of JB Studio hosting the August Be Inspired Challenge again. I’m glad to be back with the challenge.

It’s freezing down here in South America but I know most of you are facing hot days and also school off time, so some are traveling and having fun. I’ve been noticing lots of summer and beach kits all around. That’s why I decided to search for a picture of the ocean. I browsed “ocean” on pinteres and I just couldn’t resist this one since I love turtles.

What I really love about this picture is that you don’t need to scrap a beach or summer picture (maybe you are already tired of that LOL). You can work on other themes such as adventure, birth, gift of life, strength, family traditions… the sky isn’t the limit!

Get inspired by this picture and make a layout.

 Everyone who participates in this month’s challenge will receive this participation prize from JB Studio. (yeah, me!)

The rules for the challenge :

(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the August Scrappin’ 7 Challenge.
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Be Inspired Challenge Gallery
(5) Post the layout in the August Be Inspired Challenge Thread and a link to it in the gallery so we can leave you some love.
(6) HAVE FUN!

Please be sure to credit the designer’s kit/s when you post to the gallery. Please follow the terms of use for the font used in this challenge. Layouts are due by midnight EST on August 31.

Hi Everyone!!! I hope everyone had a FAB holiday weekend!!! My weekend was CRAZY….we have a huge party for the holiday and then everyone came back for left overs the next day!! So I am really late with getting my challenge up this month!!! Very sorry!!

Ok, so one of my most favorite kinds of mixed media is Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s)  ATC’s are alot of fun to make,  just like with art journal pages, let your imagination guide you as there is only one hard fast rule of ATCs and that is the SIZE!! They are always 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. They can be landscaped or portrait.  For me, ATCs are like potato chips, I cant just make one!!!  I usually have to do a page of them!! When I used to paper craft before I discovered digital, I would make ATCs by the dozen!!

So I thought it would be fun to introduce you all to the world of ATCs!!! I know that on the internet they have tons of different swaps and exchanges with ATCs, so this month we can all learn about ATCs and then maybe next month we could do a swap with each other??? Let me know what you think!!

I created the stash builders this month to be specifically for ATCs. The backgrounds are the right size and all of the accents are scaled down to fit the ATCS.  To make it easier for you!! In your monthly coupon I am also going to include my other ATC kits so that you can have a choice of things to use as I realize that most of you wont have things that are ATC sized..although you can size down anything from any kit!

As always we have our FREE Stashbuilder

Expires: July 31,2014

So what IS an Artist Trading Card?? Well it is a little one of a kind piece of art that YOU create!!! I don’t want anyone to get overwhelmed with these as you can use the same techniques on these as you do your art journal pages! They are just smaller!!

Here is a step by step for paper but can still be used for digital by Wiki that you can check out. There are TONS of images out there for you to look at to see how it is done! Check out this Google Image Search to see a gagillion examples! As you can see by the examples…ANYTHING GOES!!!

Please let me know if you have any questions at all!!

For this month we are going to make a total of FOUR…yes 4 ATC’s!!!! Please don’t let that keep you from joining the challenge!! I promise its more fun than work!!!

Week 1 ~ ATC 1:

Step 1:  I want you to look thru the kit or stash builder that you have chosen to use for your first ATC.  What is the first thing that comes to mind? Does something there make you think of something else?  When I made my ATC for this week I chose the girl with the long hair because when I looked at her a verse from a song in South Pacific came to mind “I’m going to wash that man right outta my hair”  So while creating I was singing that song the entire time!!

One of the images might remind you of a quote, a song verse, a sassy saying or even a commercial jingle…whatever it is just go with it and start there!!

Step 2: Choose your background. Remember you can alter these backgrounds!! Dig into your brushes and shapes, make them YOU!

Step 3: You need a main image. You can use the one that made you think of your theme, that would work great and set that up as your biggest image in your ATC.

Step 4: Put your quote, jingle, verse whatever you chose on your ATC. I used a couple different fonts, clipped a paper to one of the words, as usual the sky is the limit.

Step 5: Now you can add in your other accents. Remember this is a small canvas so you might want to choose a couple things or you might want to do some brush work, you will know when your art is done because it will feel done!!

Step 6:  Post it to our ART JOURNAL/MIXED MEDIA gallery along with all your other wonderful creations and then post back here in this thread to we can all see what you are up too!

Here is my week 1 ATC

2chmd_julypaj_week1

Cant wait to see what you all come up with!!! Now go forth and create magnificent things!
