View Full Version : September 2010 (2-14) Designer Challenge hosted by SBM Members

09-02-2010, 01:02 PM
We are havin' an extremely busy September amongst all us designers, so I am gonna jump in on the September designer challenge and make ya'lls do a challenge amongst yourselves! I'm gonna give you the basics and you guys take it from there. Okay?!

1. You MUST use the color palette provided below. You MUST use at least THREE (3) of the colors, but feel free to use all of them. White and black included, of course. Right-click and save to your computer.

2. Visit the SBM Gallery and SCRAPLIFT a layout that YOU like and use that layout idea to make a page. Tell us whose layout you used by providing the gallery link to their layout (link only for theirs so we don't get confused with too many images). Upload your layout to the gallery AND copy/paste the image link in THIS THREAD so we can see your layout. (Use the middle "Linked Image" code below your uploaded layout.) You may use ANY papers/embellishments you wish -- just remember to PROVIDE CREDIT where due.

3. When you post your layout in this thread, at the same time, CHALLENGE YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS to make a change to the layout YOU MADE so they can make a new layout. Yes, come up with an IDEA... ANY IDEA... to challenge your fellow members in creating a new layout. For instance... challenge them in the type of photos they use, the wording, their journaling, the embellishments they use... there's no limit to the possibilities!

4. The ONLY EXCEPTION is that EVERY LAYOUT throughout this challenge MUST use at least THREE (3) colors from the provided color palette.

Yes, this will get SEVERAL ideas and layouts going at once, so you all will have SEVERAL choices and fun things to do!

All righty! Let's see whatcha got! :D


P. S. "Surprise" for those who participate. *wink*

Had a ball with this one. Played around and made stuff using all the colors. My layout is called Young Photographers (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/design-team-challenges/p42368-young-photographers.html)

Okay, here's mine. I was inspired by Bekah_E BLE_Beautiful Moments layout. I used Carena's lovely Spring Meadow kit.

Here's Bekah's layout that inspired me.

I challenge you all to create a layout using this same inspiration with other colors from the pallette.

Okay, I tried to change my layout but time had expired. Here's the one I really wanted to use. Not that it matters that much. I just wanted to dress it up a little more. I challenged myself, how about that?
