Join me for a wild and woolly speed scrap on Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 9pm EST

You'll need ONE photo and a photo mask (one will be provided if you don't have one!)

Click HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/calendar.php?do=getinfo&e=649&day=2009-5-14&c=1) for a reminder!

Oh, and it will be in the FORUM!

Sounds like fun! I've never used a photo mask before so thanks for the hint. I have some masks but have not yet taken the time to learn to use them. I'll have to see if I can find some hints about using them before tomorrow.

Do we already need to know how to use a photo mask before the Speed Scrap? What exactly goes on at a speed scrap? I was just curious since I have seen them mentioned, but was not sure what they were.

Basically, we all get together, and I (or whoever is hosting) give you all a prompt about what to do on your layout, every ten minutes, for example: use 3 papers, one patterned and 2 solids. Sometimes where and how you actually USE them on the layout is up to you, and sometimes following prompts give you that information. ALL you need to come to a speed scrap is an appreciation for ARTISTIC INTERPRETATION, :wink:. All of the prompts are guidelines given to help you try some new things or get out of your comfort zone....they're not absolutes, and the only thing that disqualifies you from receiving the posting bonus, is NOT finishing up and posting your layout. Alot of my FAVORITE layouts have resulted from speed scraps because you don't have time to analyze your choices...you go with your gut, and a lot of times, those pages are phenomenal.

Anyway, after the 7 prompts, you then have ONE hour to finish up your layout, post it in the gallery and post in the Speed scrap thread! That's all there is to it.

I must say that I am known for being a bit difficult when it comes to Speed Scraps. I like to shake things up :biggrin: and throw a few curve balls. But I've promised to behave this time and be mild, so it's a perfect opportunity to come get your feet wet! There's lots of fun conversation and you get to know and enjoy the community here at GDS.

Hope to see you there!*woot

PS..I'll give you some basic instructions about the photo mask, and there are LOTs of talented ladies who will be there, that will have LOTs of info!

artistic interpretation is my favorite :giggle: tool!

If she is screaming, she is OK, so grab the camera first :lmao:

Thanks for answering my question in such detail Jenn. I think I will give it a try and see how well I can still take directions. :laugh: It will definitely be interesting to scrap by instinct only. :wink: I've been wanting to learn how to put masks to use too.

Yay! I think you will have fun.
I am such a planner and a slow scrapper -- speed scraps really get my mojo going, Some of my favorite pages were made during Speed Scraps too.

Uh oh, does not sound good. Hopefully it gets better and DD will cooperate and head to bed on time so you can scrap.

Since my hubby is gone tonight (weel, at least till 9:30 tonight) and my kids are in bed by that time...I might actually try this. LOL The only photo masks I have are the ones that come with PSE 7. Are those OK to use? or, I will just have to get the one from you....

I think we can use photo masks we have, or if we dont one will be provided.
Wow -- i didn't know Elements came with photo masks, that is so cool!

We just got a dd set from Christy Skaggs, I think just last week and then in Feb. we got one from bianca. Hope that helps. I also think the one from Bianca gives you directions on how to apply it.

I hope I can make it to this one but my kid has his last band concert of the year tonight so I have to go to that first. I am really starting to miss doing these. They are so much fun

Me either. There is so much I have yet to learn about PSE 7. Guess I need to do some investigating, lol.

Oh, did Jenn change the time? I thought it said the SS was going to be at 8:00 EST but I see it says 9:00 EST. I guess I'm a little too early.

I wonder if pse 6 has any masks. I'm using the ones we got for a dd but I'm not sure how to use them. do they go under the pic then highlight the pic in the layers and group with previous???

When I have used them, I treated them as when I was using a template. Guess we will find out soon what the correct way to use them is, lol.
