Task # 11 My layout uses a simple black and white color scheme. Here is a black and white color swatch. I had to make the background colored to make the white swatch show up.




Task #12 Here is the link to my layout Good Friends Often Think Alike I used a tutorial from the SG University "Chalking Around PNG Brush Files Using the Burn Tool" and used this effect on the stamped border behing the title. Also used the new Brandy Murray action silhouette tutorial.

I did a layout with a big title that told the basic idea of the page and then used journaling that briefly finished the story without overwhelming the layout.

January 14 - TASK 10 - Complete

I chose April's
newsletter tutorial on using masks to trim layers. Trimming with Masks I've used the mask to trim embellishments and papers. I didn't realize how easy this technique is and using it speeds up layouts (and God know I need to speed up a little--or maybe a lot). Now, I want to learn more about using masks.

January 17 - SPEEDBUMP
Update your Signature. If you have a new seasonal signature you have created within the month of January 2013, you are ahead of the curve for this challenge! If not, create a new seasonal signature to use for the rest of January. If you already created one this year, you are not required to make a new one.
Requirement: Post a link to your new seasonal signature (created in January 2013) in this thread.


Custom Signature Basics:

Maximum size of custom signature for the Scrap Girls Forum is 225 x 225 pixels.
Make sure your signature fills the whole 225 pixels either horizontally or vertically. If there is a lot of white space around it, it will be really tiny on the message board.
Save your signature as a PNG to allow for transparency. (Not as big of an issue now that the background of the forum is white).
Upload your signature to the Message Board Signatures Gallery.

Once your layout is in the gallery, you add it to your signature:
1. Click on "Share Image" and copy the URL from the 'Image Link' box
2. Go to your 'My Settings' (top right corner of MB, down-arrow, My Settings)
3. Click on 'Profile' in the horizontal purple menu line
4. Click on 'Change Signature' in the vertical left purple menu
5. If you are changing your signature, delete the old one, in the Edit signature Box.
6. Click on 'Insert Image' in the message menu (button looks like a horizon scene)
7. Paste your new URL (Image Link from the Gallery) in the window that pops up.
8. Click on 'Insert Image' in the pop-up.
9. Click on 'Save Changes' at the bottom of the Edit signature Box.

Task #8

I'm playing catch up, I found this layout harder than I'd expected, probably because I used larger images and one isn't even square...

I have produced Decorating the Christmas tree based on O Holy Night

January 17 Speed Bump:
Here's my signature (I hope!) It's the first time I've done one, so I already see what I could do better next time. But I'll have to change it, so there's room for improvement. I can't stay snowflakes forever, it's against my principles :lol:/>

No problem - I just couldn't figure out why it wasn't working for me. Great page, and wonderful job on the album BTW. LYSL in the gallery. :)

Speedbump - COMPLETE
Here is the link for my JUMPSTART JANUARY SIGGIE.
I am sentimental about my Siggie and don't like to change it, but rather add to it. So, this morning I took it all apart to the basics and made it a JJ one.

January 17-Speedbump

Here is the link to my new siggie....haven't updated that for a long time, so this was good!

I'm calling it seasonal because the background reminds me of the snow (and the yellow parts where the dog has been :runningdog:/>) and the colors remind me of a cold winter day sitting in the house with a nice warm cup of hot chocolate!

(I know I need to get tasks 9,10,11 and 12 done but this was more fun than trying to learn a new technique on an old software with tutorials from a different software)

Speedbump no 2

I use Cobian to automate my backups, it is free windows software. It backs up files from my laptop to my external hard drive once a week. My scrapping items are already on the drive so it backs those up to our desktop computer over the wireless network. It works very well, unless it only does a partial backup because I turn off the computer or disconnect the ehd and that is what I found when I looked this evening. Anyway all now backed up properly.
