Mix It Up September

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, welcome to September's Forum Game. We will do a bit of this and a bit of that, lots of different ways to create layouts. We have tutorials, colour swatches, images and the shop for you to use as inspiration for your layouts.

Everyday, Monday to Saturday, a task will be posted. Each layout will usually have two steps, just check the task each day for when to post your layouts. There are no twists or tricks and no daily time limits.

Each completed layout posted in the Hodge Podge Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of five $5.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

You have until 11:59pm ET on September 30th 2018 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Hodge Podge Gallery. There are no daily time limits.

After each task 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.

Let’s start the month with a choice of tutorial.

Great forum game. I'll try to keep up and get more layouts done this month. I'll choose Fun With Fonts: Offset, which sounds like fun to do. I'll do my layout and post it later.

3rd September

Staying with titles, I love to use word art as a title.

Today we want you to search the shop for a set of word art that you really like and would use as a title.

Post a link here when you have found one.

I remember that sinking feeling as you go back to work - then after a couple of days it feels like you've never been away. Chin up Valerie - it's nearly Christmas!
