PROGRESSIVE CHALLENGE 5 – TASK 2 (OCT. 2012)
 
Here we are—week two of the October progressive challenge! We’ll be adding some fun goodies to our pages this week!

Don’t know what a Progressive Challenge is? Please go here to learn.

PLEASE NOTE! Although this is in the digiscrap threads, anyone is welcome to play--whether they're a digi, paper or hybrid scrapper.


PROGRESSIVE CHALLENGE 5 – TASK 2 (OCT. 2012)

  • Add clusters comprised of at least two elements each on two of the four corners of the photo .
  • Add one or two embellishments to the horizontal paper strips added in Task 1.
  • Select and copy a portion of the a photo on your page and add it to your background, reducing the opacity to blend it into the paper. (mine: cat eyes.) [Non-digiscrappers might have some trouble doing this part. One idea--If you have a scanner and printer, you could scan your photo and print it on an acrylic sheet, then add to page. Be creative! (You can leave this step out if you'd like.)
  • If desired, add a second blended embellishment to the background (mine: ncat at bottom right).
NOW UPLOAD:

- Remember to first save your page in its original version to maintain your layers, so you'll be able to make additions in Task 3.

- Save your page for the web as a .jpg (600x600 or less) & upload to the Challenge
??-Task ?? Gallery by adding the keyword DGSCPR005Task2 when you upload. Please also post a link to this week’s work in this thread.

It’s gonna be fun to see everyone’s pages after this task!

Ya think?? Hope so! :p

beetle76 10-09-2012 01:03 AM

hmmm, this will be interesting going to have to think about the blended element .... thanks for the challenge! :-)

Luv2Smile 10-09-2012 05:14 AM

What a fun task - love the idea how you placed the eyes in background

basketballmom 10-09-2012 05:49 AM

Got the first one done ... since I just finished Task 1 last night, I kept working to add Task 2. (yeah ... I'm addicted).
The more I work on this page, the more I like it ...
And now I have an idea to CASE this to make a page with my daughter as the central image (maybe ds too) with their grandmother in the background.

Your page is lovely, Gail. You hardly need two more tasks!!

Grandmaof1 10-09-2012 09:50 AM

Just added my page. I am having a lot of fun with this challenge. I changed my page a little bit, deleted the stitches I used to begin with. Found some I liked better. That is what is nice about digi scrapping, if you want to change something you can do so in no time.

lori92760 10-09-2012 11:17 AM

here's mine

the challenge for me is to follow the challenge and still follow my heart. i probably could have stopped after task one and been happy. but with much thought and with much use of the undo button, i have arrived at something that still satisfies my less is more ideas.

i forgot to mention in the description that my photo portion is in the bottom left corner of the page. i extracted the branch/leaves and put it on another layer and then flipped it and finally blended it into the page.

now i am going to peek at the other pages.

sewflake 10-10-2012 05:12 AM

What is this??? Ha A conspiracy to get paper scrappers to convert to digi with all the really cool options with computer graphics?? LOL! How cool are those cat eyes!

I'm going to give adding a protion of my picture to the background a try..........

sewflake 10-10-2012 06:30 PM

Got it finished for this week.

You did an awesome job on the challenge, Sharon! That background photo looks so cool! :pHow did you get it to look blended?

sewflake 10-11-2012 09:29 AM

Wendy, I assume you mean the photo in the left corner. I took your suggestion by reducing the opacity with options on my printer, then printed/copied my picture onto vellum. It gives it that blended look when layered over other papers.

Luv2Smile 10-11-2012 10:09 AM

Everyone's pages are looking great! I am actually having a hard time & wondering if this is normal when first using digi? Just cannot seem to find what works with my pics & think its the 1st paper choice. For the challenge, should I keep what have and just go with next steps without changes previous elements?

wendella247 10-11-2012 10:38 AM

Yes, that's the one I meant. You are so clever! It turned out so well! With your creativity, maybe you don't need to go digi at all! lol

In my opinion, the most important thing is to make pages that please you, so if you want to change your paper or something else, go for it.

It's great that you're playing and you don't need to get discouraged! One of the joys of digi is you can keep changing things until you're happy without wasting a thing! I'd much rather see you do that than give up on the challenge or digi-scrapping! :p

Okay will do thanks - just uploaded task 2 and enjoyed being able to cut the feet imprint from the actual pic and added to paper.

FeetCheck Task2

The footprints are actually taken from the pic, was surprised it showed up so well when rotated it after cut n paste.

FMcrafter 10-12-2012 02:40 PM

I really think I want to change the spider web to a bare tree silhouette...anyone have ideas where I can find one?

lori92760 10-12-2012 04:43 PM

here's a free bare tree brush

hope this helps.

basketballmom 10-13-2012 11:45 AM

Wendy - incorporating the photo into the background was a brilliant idea! Thanks for "making" us do it! :)

It's fun to go see all the layouts! I should've started doing challenges earlier!

I'm with you! It's my favorite site online! I've made lots of friends and even though I've only met one gal in person when she visited AZ last year, I love the support and comaraderie here. Glad you're enjoying it too! ;)

So true!

wendella247 10-13-2012 03:59 PM

Generally, I think crafters are just a nice bunch of people! I just came from a craft fair where I spent considerable time talking with some of the other vendors about their projects and our love of crafting! Didn't sell much, but enjoyed chatting! lol

beetle76 10-13-2012 07:25 PM

A great challenge this week, I tried a couple of ideas for getting a photo into the background. It was really fun and challenged me to use my computer and edit the photo which I dont usally do. A really different look resulted . Thanks for the challenge Wendy!

Yup. Definitely the tree over the web. I like how the tree 'echoes' the photo.

Great pages!

Michele, I've learned PSE that way. Trial and error and lots of tutorials have taught me everything I know! I remember it better when I learn the hard way! lol
