    Challenge: Blind Scrap

    For this special edition of The Groove I offer you a new challenge, which is a “blind scrap”. It means that you are going to discover the final rendering of your page layout once your page is completed. I hope that you will have fun in making your page layout.

    PLEASE READ THIS SECTION: What you must know before starting…


    What You Need For The Challenge

    Before starting select a photo and a kit.

    Step By Step Challenge Instructions

    1. Launch Scrapbook MAX! and open a new project.
    Select the menu Page > Settings and then click on the Size tab of the Page Settings dialog box to set the page size:
    Size: 3600 x 3600 pixels
    Resolution: 300 pixels/inch

    2. Add a Background paper with no pattern.

    3. Add an Embellishment that you will use to decorate your background paper. Place the embellishment (Embellishment A) on the left top side of your page and set a transparency between 50 and 75.

    4. Copy-paste (Ctrl+C - Ctrl+V) this embellishment and place it on the right middle side of your page.

    5. Add a patterned Paper Scrap (Paper A) and use the shortcuts S (for size), P (for Position), A (for Angle) to set these values:
    Size: 3100 x 3100
    Position x: -265
    Position y: 600
    Angle: 356
    Enable the Shadow (Check the Shadow box).
    Important: Set your Position, and THEN the Angle.


    6. Add a second Paper Scrap (Paper B) and set these values:
    Size: 3100 x 3100
    Position x: -530
    Position y: 744
    Angle : 354
    Enable the Shadow.

    7. Add a Photo in a custom shape on your Paper Scrap B and set the Angle: 354
    You can set a transparency for your Photo… so it looks like it is merged with the paperscrap.

    8. Add a Caption text under your photo.
    You could add two Caption texts with a different font. Use the picker to set the same color than your Paperscrap A on your texts.

    9. Add an Embellishment on the Paper Scrap A on the right side, and enable the Shadow.



    TIP: Select both the Embellishment and the Paper Scrap A and right click. In the popup menu select the item menu: Group. Now the Embellishment is on the layer between the Paper Scrap A and the Paper Scrap B. You can ungroup.

    10. Add some additional Embellishments on the Paper Scrap A on the right side, and enable the Shadow.
    They should be between the Paper Scrap A and the Paper Scrap B, but you should see them (see the screenshot).

    11. Add some Embellishments on the Paper Scrap B below the Photo and at the right side of the Photo.

    12. Set your default Shadow settings with the following values. What I call Default Shadow is the Global Shadow. Be sure to check the Global box.



    Global Shadow:
    Angle: 315
    Distance: 35
    Transparency: 40
    Blur: 40
    The new Global Shadow settings will be automatically applied to all the objects for which the GLOBAL Shadow option has been enabled.

    13. And now make the page yours!

    IMPORTANT - If something isn't clear, please feel free to ask me!

    So now HAVE FUN!

          Kapi is this right? The screen shot you show, has the papers all the way to the top, but the numbers we plugged in make it lower???

          I used Carena's One for the Boys Kit, you can get it Here

            It's a BLIND SCRAP so you'll have to wait for. I can' tell you if you're right now.

            But what I can tell you is that the screenshot has been cut as I didn't want to you show you the WHOLe layout... but only the "layers". THE PAPERS AREN'T TO THE TOP.

            Thank you to be so fast to join this challenge! I really appreciate.

            In the mean you can check your page... and add embies if you want.

            THANK YOU SO MUCH!

                  Try to find some time. That's a good exercise :-) between 2 boxes.

                      Hello Fonzzy,

                      OK. Please let me know what you don't understand.

                      Be sure to read the section "Before starting..." to know how to set the sizes, positions and angles... Then follow each step (step by step).

                      Let me know if I can help.

                            Fonzzy did you save it as a web size and not full size? If we have saved something in a full size and go to save something again, it stays the same as what we last did.

                              Fonzzy,

                              When you export your JPEG file please select custom size and enter this value: 600 x 600.

                              Hope that it helps.


                              Kaye,

                              Your page layout is once again STUNNING!
