October 4 Elements Slow Scrap

210 posts in this topic

4-elements.jpg

Welcome to October's forum game. A straight forward slow scrap! There will be no twists or tricks, although some of the tasks maybe a little more difficult.

 

Every day, Monday to Saturday, we will give you a step that will lead to a finished layout. Layouts One, two and three will have six steps each. Layouts four will have eight steps.

 

Members who complete the steps and post all 4 layouts in the Slow Scrap Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $10.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

 

Each completed layout posted in the Slow Scrap Gallery, up to 4 per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of three $3.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

 

You have until 11:59pm ET on October 31stt 2017 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Slow Scrap Gallery. There are no daily time limits.

 

You can make changes to your layout as the week progresses.

 

After each step you can post your progress in this thread if you wish. PLEASE NOTE; THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT. Here is how;

  • Make sure you save your layout as a PSD/layered file first.
  • Save your layout as a .JPEG at 72ppi with a size of 4 x 4 inches (288 x 288 pixels) this is smaller than you would normally save for the web.
  • Follow the first part of this tutorial How To Post Images In The Forum  to post your "progress" in the game thread.

Now that my mojo is back from Hawaii, and before she takes off again, I'll give this a whirl. Missed the September Slow Scrap.

I haven't done too well with keeping up with the challenges over the past few months. I'll try harder this month!

All of you girls that come up with these slow scraps and run them are wonderful! Thank you so much. I grumble sometimes because I can't figure something out, but all the same-I'm grateful  for them. :wub:

Please count me in. :)

Everyone has good papers and photos. Hudson said he could hold up a glass of water for me to photograph. ;)
