Amazing Digiscrapping Race #4

Posted: January 20, 2009 in My Layouts

So I joined the ADSR #4. I am teamed up with a partner. Her name is Kathi. She’s the best partner ever. Her layouts are fantastic and she’s very fast. Our team blog

Challenge# 1 – The moment everyone had been waiting for has been done. The first challenge of the Amazing Didi Scrap Race 4 has been posted.

1) Rip and tear a photo into three or more pieces! (that’s a photo, not papers!)
2) Use journaling on your layout (something I stress is SO important).

This is a challenge to be completed by both racers.

Here is my layout. It took me forever to tear the photo.

Challenge #2
ADSR – Stop#2 – Intersection!
Here was the challenge:

Cabin Fever
(interpret this as you will, but it must be evident that this is the thought/theme behind your page!)

Must include:
3 photos
4 papers only (no more or less)
8 different elements – at least 1 must be acrylic
2 different fonts
Must have a title, and journaling (which must be visible – if it is not readable, please include in your description)

Between us partners we came up with our interpretation of the theme. We decided to go with what could be a cure for cabin fever. I started us out with a fabulous template and provided the photos. I started the layout by placing the photos and papers. Kathi, my partner finished it off with the elements, journaling and title. I think that it turned out so cute.

Here is our layout:

Challenge #3
This is a regular stop, which means that both racers will need to do their own layout.

Your challenge is simple.

Find the first layout you created that is still uploaded to a gallery and scraplift it using techniques, trends and concepts that you have learned since you did that original layout.

You can…

* You can use a different kit, elements, papers, brushes, shapes, etc.
* You can add and remove elements, papers, etc.
* You can use a different sized canvas.
* You can move things around and change the overall sketch of the layout.
* You can use the first layout uploaded to any gallery. This does not necessarily mean that it’s the first layout you ever did.When you view your gallery, at whichever site it is at, it needs to be the first layout uploaded to that gallery.
You can not…

* You can not add additional photos to the layout.
* You can not remove any photos from the layout.
* You can not add additional text to the layout; journaling, alphas that spell out a word, word art, journaling. The only text that appears on the layout must be identical in verbiage to what it was originally. You can change the font, you can convert text into an alpha. If your layout previously used an alpha or wordart, you can convert that alpha/wordart to text or use a new alpha/wordart to spell the same thing. When you are done though, you must have the same words that were on the old layout, on the new layout.

Here is my layout:

Challenge #4
The Art and Soul Challenge!
You both must complete this challenge! However, this is a FAST FORWARD challenge which means that the first team done can SKIP the January 18th challenge if they wish!

1. The Art of it: Your LO must have artistic flair! Literally! Your LO must have at least 3 things “artsy” and/or “altered” on it–(such as but not limited to: paint splatters, a paintbrush, paint spills, crayon doodles, goopy glitter, watercolors, canvas AND/OR altered art items such as wings on photos, art dolls, vintage doodads, ephemera, etc). Really stretch yourself and try something “artsy” that you haven’t tried before!

2. The Soul of it: You must journal something from your Soul. Something positive, heartfelt and meaningful to you in your life! Something you’ve learned, something you’ve gleaned from your life experience. Perhaps something you would want to pass on to the next generation! (It can even be your favorite quote and why it touches/inspires you) Uplift us, make us smile–inspire us! You must share your journaling with us-if it’s hard to read or blended into the background-part of the challenge is to share your journaling in your description.

This was a really hard challenge, but I think that my layout turned out ok.

Challenge #5:
Your challenge for this stop is to create a layout that has no photos on it, but includes at least 3 different and separate photo frames.
Sometimes we have special thoughts, feelings and/or memories about a person or place or event or pet or whatever, but no photos. OR, we could be missing someone who has passed on or something that is no longer in our lives and would dearly love to be able to express that on a page.

Because scrapbooking is all about recording our life journey and that of our family we can still create a page to record and preserve those special thoughts, feelings and/or memories with a little thought and planning and with the creative use of photo frames and journaling (although journaling is not required for this challenge).

Here is my layout for #5:
