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 at least 50% 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. Can't belive we're in a New Year!!! Happy 2013 Everyone!! .. Ok.. so easy step one.. Pick a medium to dark colour backgroud paper.. solid with texture.. but no pattern. That's it. Pick your own theme.

Post your layout by Wednesday, January 9, 2013 The next step will be posted Thursday, January 10 2013

Step Two:
2. Ok.. Get our your guides and place one dead center running vertially. That is your Midline. Now you have to find a rectangle or square relatively thin frame and place it in the middle of one side of your layout, between the midline and one side. Now make 3 copies so that you have 4 altogether. Select the bottom two frames and pull them slightly towards the midline or center of your layout. Now rotate the bottom one just slightly towards the midline and then the one on top of it slight towards it. Now rotate the 2nd frame to the outside edge, and the top one rotates the same way as the 2nd one but not as far. That's it! Any questions.. please ask!

Post your layout by Tuesday, January 15, 2013 The next step will be posted Wednesday, January 16 2013

Step Three:
3. Now you need to find a photo, one that you can slip between the 2nd and 3rd frame. You can make it an *out of bounds* photo or just make the focal point fit in the middle of the frames. Try a few different techniques to find something you like.

Post your layout by Monday, January 21, 2013 The next step will be posted Tuesday, January 22 2013

Step Four:
4. Now you get to add *stuff* lol. Choose some elements and either create a cluster or place the elements here and there in, around, under your 4 frames. Choose a few (or 1) long elements ie a ribbons, or paper strips and have them go across the page and under the top edge of frames. Place a scatter or small cluster in the opposite bottom corner from your frame.

Post your layout by Sunday, January 27, 2013 The next step will be posted Monday, January 28 2013

Step Five:
5. Time for the finishing touches. Add a title from a font you've not used before and apply a style to it, ie glitter, or glossy or something you like. Find a tag to hang off your frames and add the date of your photo to it. Add shadows if you like. Your Finished!

Post your layout by Thursday, January 31, 2013

Welcome aboard!.. Yes.. worn edges are ok.. There's a lot of artist license in this challenge and the steps are guide. The fun begins when you choose to do something and the next step has you scratching your head wondering how you're going to get around it!! LOL .. But that's the fun of it! :) And you learn new ways to do things :) .. There is no *right or wrong*.. only Different and Exciting!! :)

I've been trying to do the "progressive" challenges for a few months and I'm learning a lot. Thanks for all the fun!

I want to make sure that I'm giving appropriate credit. I watched the video on the keyword and store item web address part so I know to do that, but should I also list that same info under the photo description and credit section? It's seems a bit redundant (sp?), but I want to do it properly. Also, do I need to do an accumulative listing when I post Step 2, 3, etc? How do you all keep track of this? Again, I want to give proper credit where I should....and what about the non-GDS stuff? How should I list that and where?

Sorry, sooooo many questions....

Jessie :)

Jessie, so nice that you are having fun with the progressives here.

The easiest way [for me] is to save the original PSD/Tiff file under the name [like Jan Progressive] in a new folder labeled GDS Jan Progressive [as an example]. Makes it easy to find that month's progressive. Then when I reduce the image and save it as a jpeg file, I label eash one with my user name, month name, and step number.... ie.... BrightEyes Jan Prog Step1. End up with the same number of jpeg files as there are steps inside that month's progressive follder. BTW... as a hint - never flatten the PSE/Tiff original file as then you can't add more layers to it. [Learned this one the hard way on my first progressive.]

I always put the the kit name and link to kit in the description box as well as in the credit/store item boxes. There has been some problem finding it from clicking on the store item boxes.... sometime it will say 'item not found'. By including it in both places - a person can find the kit easily. I will also list the kit by name/designer in my post - if I remember. :wink:

I also like to copy and paste the step information into each step description box..... being sure to go back and repaste the kit link information as it gets cut short when you do the copy. So... step 2 would have the info from step 1 and step 4 would have the information for all the steps up to that step. Hope that is clear.

Have fun and enjoy the progressives.... they are additive. :twitcy:

ETA: for non-GDS items list them under the GDS but do not link them as outside linking is not allowed. You should list the kit and designer names do not list the other store name/s. Read the Gallery TOUs here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/cmps_index.php?page=tou). The progessive rules say you need to use at least 50% GDS items.

JessieTrotter
01-06-2013, 10:31 AM
Thanks so much Bright Eyes for your help. I'm still a little unsure of how to credit a non GDS designer....could you give me a generic example??? Thanks again for all your help!

Jessie :)

For the purpose of this challenge, I would just list the credits on the finished layout. If there are a lot of them, and not from GDS designers, it's ok to list the credits in the description, just no links to outside sites ie: paper 2 from kit Blah by XYZ, glitter swirl from kit Blah by ABC. If using a kit from a GDS designer, that's where you'd use the information from the videos on this site. :biggrin:

There is a place within your program (PS or PSE) under properties to list things. Another way to do it is to put a layer at the bottom of your layer stack and name it credits.. then list the credits there and just keep it invisible until you need to add things to it. Then just copy and paste it when you need it. :) I'm sure there are heaps of other handy suggestions others have too. Pick one you like and have fun! :) :biggrin:


Just a Tweek on Bright Eyes comment re: progressive rules.. it states "Use of at least 50% GDS Designer products is encouraged and very much appreciated!" ... it doesn't say you *have to*.

JessieTrotter
01-06-2013, 12:16 PM
Thanks so much for the info! Though I may use some outside stuff, I recently signed up for a year for the monthly stuff from GDS....so shouldn't be any problem finding all I need there. Now, I've gotta try that Scrappin 7...whew! hahaha

This is the first time I am doing the progressive challenge so I am a bit 'scared' :laugh:
I hope this first step is okay. I used a fine texturized paper from CorelPainter and I used a blue colour. I placed it in the gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=115201&nocache=1).

When you say "Now rotate the bottom one just slightly towards the midline and then the one on top of it slight towards it" did you mean the one on top should be away from the midline?

Scrappinsass
01-11-2013, 06:39 AM
ok..think of a deck of cards... and you have 4 in your hand.. and they are fanned out... now put a little space between the first two and the second two. make sense?

Scrappinsass
01-11-2013, 06:42 AM
now place them in the middle of one half of your layout and you know where the midline is so you won't go over it. You placed the midline down the vertical centre of your layout. :) and you can place them anywhere you want in that half.. either near the top or near the bottom.

Finally got the idea... like a deck of cards. So much easier to understand. :wub1: Started out with a square frame but didn't like how it looked - so made it into a rectangle one.

Here is my interpretation of step 2. I place in in the gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=115507&title=progressive-challenge&cat=708).
I used a frame from the Sprinkling Spring kit by Designs by Marcie.

Step Three:
3. Now you need to find a photo, one that you can slip between the 2nd and 3rd frame. You can make it an *out of bounds* photo or just make the focal point fit in the middle of the frames. Try a few different techniques to find something you like.

Step Four:
4. Now you get to add *stuff* lol. Choose some elements and either create a cluster or place the elements here and there in, around, under your 4 frames. Choose a few (or 1) long elements ie a ribbons, or paper strips and have them go across the page and under the top edge of frames. Place a scatter or small cluster in the opposite bottom corner from your frame.
