July Colourful Slow Scrap

Recommended Posts

Welcome to this month's forum game a

Colourful Slow Scrap

 

At the beginning of each week we will give you two or three colour swatches to choose from. Just pick your favourite to use for that week.

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

  • Each completed layout posted in the Slow Scrap Gallery, up to 5 per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of three $5.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.
  • You have until 11:59pm ET on May 31st 2018 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.

I've been even slower than slow for this Slow Scrap while I searched for photos to use, since I haven't been out in weeks to take any. I decided to go with some oldies, so will be along later with the beginning of our tasks.

I'm going with the neutrals, although I plan to scrap some old Christmas photos. I'm hoping it will all work out. :D  Here are my papers and photo.

I'm going with the golden tones. I used a template to blend my papers and an overlay and blend modes on my photo. Here's how it all looks so far:
