If you're new to the gallery, here's a little info on how to add your cards to our gallery...
If you haven't uploaded your cards yet, just click the Upload a Card link in the left sidebar. Keep the default category as Member Galleries. Then follow the form to browse to the photo of your card on your computer, enter a title and description then click upload/submit. On the next screen it asks you for the ingredients of the card and also has a Keyword section. In this section type the keyword for this month's challenges...VLVSep2012. When you're done filling things out, click process. It takes a few minutes to show up in our challenge gallery but as long as you've got the correct keyword, your photo will eventually appear in the Gallery
If you've already uploaded your cards, you can edit the keywords by going to the photo in your gallery. In the bottom right corner under the information below the picture, there is an Edit Photo button. Click this, then in the Edit keywords section add the VLVSep2012 keyword and then click process. These changes take about 10 minutes or so to appear, but then your card should appear in our challenge gallery.
And here's your sketch and samples from Maureen, Andrea, and myself!
hmmm...I can't see the sketch or the attached photos but I did find it on Maureen's blog - looks fantastic! oh -- and the Sept gallery link actually links to the August gallery. Just thought I would let you know!
Well, it wasn't pretty. I went to an all day crop with some friends, and they laughed at me b/c I struggled for hours on this one. I could not make it look right following the sketch. I kept seeing two big alien bug-eyes staring at me. I'm afraid I finally had to deviate a bit from the symmetry or risk tossing it altogether and starting over. Definitely not one of my favorite cards, but I'm ok with the end result.
Looking at the Diva cards, I'm astounded that you all make it look so natural and effortless. I may just have to try something else. I'm not sure if I was just stuck on using items that did not want to morph into this layout.
Challenges I participate in: Inspirational Challenge, Sketch Challenge, Feature Stamper, Color Challenge, Ways to Use It, Sweet n Sassy Challenge, Christmas Cards, Word Art Wednesdays, Sweet V's Ideas and I am a proud Tea-Potter Challenge participant.
Well I came back from Holiday and there were 3 sketches waiting for me - this first one went on hold as my creative brain cell couldn't work it out. Then having coloured this image the penny (excuse the pun) dropped and this is my card . Thanks for making me think!
