A progressive scrap is a *slow* speed scrap!!! I love speed scraps and I'm equally fond of progressive scraps because there's no way to anticipate the next step so it's always interesting to see what kind of a fix we can get ourselves into and out of! Heaps of fun!! So here are the general rules to our *slow* speed... er I mean *Progressive Scrap*.

1. On the first day of the month I'll post Step 1. Then, I'll post the first of next weekly steps to the Progressive Scrap in a weeks' time, and so on until we've completed the layout

2. Add only the items listed in the step for that week, although you may add/alter shadows at any time.

3. As in card playing, *once it's laid, it's played*. If you posted your layout, you may not go back and change it. You may only build on the previous week's layout following the new step for the week and this makes things VERY interesting indeed!

4. The original and subsequent steps will be posted in this forum thread, as well as here in the first post.

5. Post your weekly layouts no later than midnight of the day before the next step is due - I'll post this date in the steps.

6. Post your layouts in the *Progressive Challenge* (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=708) gallery.

7. Link your layout back to this forum thread so we can have a look at your artwork and leave some love!

8. Use of GDS Designer products is encouraged and very much appreciated!

9. Please list all the GDS products you've used.

10. There will be a posting bonus for everyone that: a) posts a layout in the gallery for each step AND ALSO b) linking their layout back to this forum. (so you have to do both). I'll post the bonus in this thread when it's available.

11. YES this challenge counts towards the Scrap 7 Challenge!

To link your images back to the gallery .. have a look here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/LinkingAGalleryLayout/LinkingAGalleryLayout.html)

Also... here's on on how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the GDS designer (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/KeywordsAndProductLinks/KeywordsAndProductLinks.html)

Step One:
1. Ease first step! .. Find a plane coloured background with texture but no pattern. That's it!

Post your layout by Monday, August 6 2012 The next step will be posted Tuesday, August 7 2012

Step Two:
2. YUP!! Here it comes LOL.... now your going to find 3 complimentary papers and cut out 3 *NARROW* but curvy waves and place them on top of each other.. so that the ones under are showing a bit.. add shadows to add dimension... AND.. if you are placing them horizontally.. they will be just a 1/2" either above or below of the center line. Same goes if you're placing them vertically. .. BE CAREFUL not to make them too large.. there are 3 more steps to come! LOL :) To cut the waves... use your polygnol lasso tool to make a wavy line across the paper going off the edge at the far side. Then bring it down an inch or so and bring it back in a wavy line to off the page on the other side; bring it up again to met the start of your first line. That should select an area with a dotted line around it. Then choose *Inverse* (In Photoshop that's Ctrl+Sht+I .. not sure what it is in Elements.. Jump in with that info Element users! Please! and Thanks! ) and delete and that will get rid of everything except your wave. Make sense?

Post your layout by Sunday, August 12, 2012 The next step will be posted Monday, August 13, 2012

Step Three:
3. Ok.. Photo time. Find a shape you like that fits with your curves, could be a circle or star or whatever you like. Clip your photo to it (use one or two photos - that's up to you) Place the photo(s) so that it's under the edge of the top curve shape. Place the photo(s) on the side of the layout that is larger in area - as you've placed the waves just off center, one side will be larger. If you are using two photos, make one smaller than the other and have them touching each other. Now find a glitter scatter (or make one) and place it along the length of the curves in between the bottom two curves.

Post your layout by Saturday, August 18, 2012 The next step will be posted Sunday, August 19, 2012

Step Four:
4. So, here is where you get to hide *some* of your curves if you choose to lol. Create a cluster of different flowers, or repeat the same flower resizing to suite. Place them in and under your curves adding shadows as you please. Include in your cluster: butterflies, buttons, ribbons or string and foliage. Use as much or as little as you choose but remember your photo is the the focal point.
Post your layout by Saturday, August 25, 2012 The next step will be posted Sunday, August 26, 2012

Step Five:
5. Final step is to add a little journaling, in white, a title *in the same colour as your paper, however a darker shade* and the date! :)

Post your layout by Friday, August 31, 2012

I agree with the others, it's not going to stay this easy. I think you're trying to lull us into thinking we're safe and then you're going to throw something impossible at us.

I have PSE 10. I followed Scrapinsass' directions:

"To cut the waves... use your polygnol lasso tool to make a wavy line across the paper going off the edge at the far side. Then bring it down an inch or so and bring it back in a wavy line to off the page on the other side; bring it up again to met the start of your first line. That should select an area with a dotted line around it. Then choose *Inverse* (In Photoshop that's Ctrl+Sht+I .. not sure what it is in Elements.. Jump in with that info Element users! Please! and Thanks! ) and delete and that will get rid of everything except your wave. "

You don't actually have to do the 'inverse'.... just have another blank layer opened and click on the area surrounded by the blinking dotted lines and drag it onto the new open blank layer. :biggrin: I then used my eraser tool to smooth out some of my edges. If you want a similar wave, you can put it on another blank layer then place paper over it and do the clipping mask. Easy...

In my page above - the smaller curved piece was one that I used the eraser on to smooth it out. But I left the slightly rougher edges on the bottom two layers. I did a horizonal flip for the middle layer so those 2 layers were slightly different.

PattyB
08-08-2012, 03:52 PM
Christina, I used the shape in PSE that looks like three waves. I simplified the layer, then used the marquee tool to select them one at a time and layer via cut. Then I enlarged the shapes to go all the way across, and then clipped a paper to each of them. Maybe this will help.

Els AW

Step Three:
3. Ok.. Photo time. Find a shape you like that fits with your curves, could be a circle or star or whatever you like. Clip your photo to it (use one or two photos - that's up to you) Place the photo(s) so that it's under the edge of the top curve shape. Place the photo(s) on the side of the layout that is larger in area - as you've placed the waves just off center, one side will be larger. If you are using two photos, make one smaller than the other and have them touching each other. Now find a glitter scatter (or make one) and place it along the length of the curves in between the bottom two curves.

Post your layout by Saturday, August 18, 2012 The next step will be posted Sunday, August 19, 2012

Step Four:
4. So, here is where you get to hide *some* of your curves if you choose to lol. Create a cluster of different flowers, or repeat the same flower resizing to suite. Place them in and under your curves adding shadows as you please. Include in your cluster: butterflies, buttons, ribbons or string and foliage. Use as much or as little as you choose but remember your photo is the the focal point.
Post your layout by Saturday, August 25, 2012 The next step will be posted Sunday, August 26, 2012

Someone asked how I got the cut out for the hat so it showed all the feathers... the answer is I turned the cookie-cutter shape until it was centered over the hat. Yes... very happy that it worked out as nice as it did.

Really pleased with our additions to the page for this step. Thanks for the liberty to play around with them and place them where they are needed/wanted.

I am very hesitant as to where to place the butterfly.... I don't want it to look like he has a butterfly coming out of his head, but thought it also would be nice to have an element away from all the clustering. Any suggestions?
I used the cookie cutter tool to cut out more butterflies from some of the paper elements from the kit.

This is a fabulous photo! I think I would have placed the large butterfly in the middle of the cluster for more focus. But that's me! We all have our own scrapping ideas, and the good thing about that is there are no rights or wrongs! It is your page, and your tastes!

I would say for now, leave it where it is and see what the last step brings! It may bring it right into focus where you want it!

What a great challenge this was again. It is my favourite at GDS so far.
I try to learn from you guys as much as I can though I don´t usw Photoshop
at all.
One day soon I hope to take part too. Till then I leave a little love.

Strange that I did not see the first few steps of stmac but I saw
at least the final one. The other Layouts are very awesome too.:wink:

The punch out - tutorial sounds great. Will see if I can do it with
my Photo Impact.

Glad you enjoy the challenge! Learning a new technique is such fun! Hope you join in soon! :)
