and you all thought you were getting away from me this week mwhahaha
I've split this months challenge into 4 parts today i'll put up part one, part 2 next week etc...ya get the drift
PART ONE (the easy bit lol)
you have probably noticed there are tons of scrapbook sketch sites around on the net, but sketches dont work in layers so what i would like you to do this week is find a sketch you like (or several if you feel up to it) and make a layered template from the sketch (sounds easy huh)
attached are the images of two sketches i found and the images & templates i made with them
once you have made your sketches into templates you will need to export them, upload the page image the sketch image and the template to this thread
you will need these templates for part 2 of this challenge
Part One Rules:
1) choose a sketch (or draw your own, scan and upload) 2) make a layered template (SMT) of the sketch 3) upload the sketch image, the SMT & image of your template to this thread
Hints & Tips: - import the sketch image into max via the embellishment or photo icons (both work) stretch the sketch to fit page. - Starting with the back most furthest placed embellishment / paper. - place your version of the embellishments / papers over the sketch, then bring the sketch image forward. - once general layout is completed delete sketch image, decorate page as preferred (remember this is a sketch so you only really need to place papers, photo areas and a general placement of embellishments) - once page is complete publish image at web/email size, then export page as a template via file> export > ok - to upload the SMT (template file) click on Manage Attachments below the reply box in this thread > Browse > go to My documents > Scrapbook Max > Templates > your smt will be in this file under whatever name you gave it > Once the file has uploaded close the pop up box and it will attach the file to your post
Ok I get the main gist of part one. But do you want us to use our own papers/embellishments so that we can share them? Or maybe ones from freebies collected here at SBM?
Also I assume we need to find sketches that aren't copyrighted right? And if they aren't we will still need to credit the creator of the sketch. yeah? LOL.
Just thought of another question. If we create some of our own shapes for paper and use those in the template, will that download into the shapes gallery for those who download the template? Or should we attach those seperately?
This really sounds fun...WOW...ok I have one question...are we to show the sketch we found as well? Or just place our sketch here and the layout we did from it? Maybe a dumb question...lol...but look who we are talking too...lmbo!
I am a Designer 4 ScrapbookMax! Check out my STORE...Thanks!
Here is mine. The one I added papers to isnt' how my final layout would look but every time I tried making one like I would actually use, the file was too big for sharing unless I went to 4shared. I am working on a layout that I would use, but are we supposed to make a page with it yet? LOL
I am a little confused with this one, ha ha!
Oh I made the sketch myself in Photoshop.
Here is another one I just did kinda quickly. I kinda scraplifted the template from a magazine. Changed it a little though. Give me a sec and I will create one with actual papers. My downloads are acting a little weird tonight sorry about that.
