It’s July 21, do you know where your challenge pages are??
A little over a week remains to get your July challenge pages done!
Follow the images to go directly to the Challenge Forums and remind yourself of the challenge, then get it done!
The July web inspiration is about…Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer…relaxing, chilling, having hot fun in the summertime! Many are choosing to show their pets relaxing for this challenge, and this one from evadraga is one of my favorites…look at this sweet little ginger kitty, probably dreaming of being a big ‘ole wild thang! I love the color contrast and the pic surrounded by ‘wild’ imagery!
July’s camera corner challenge is about panoramas and photo-merging. I didn’t even know I had this feature in Photoshop! There is so much we can learn from the challenges!
This lovely page from Scrappie Irene beautifully exhibits the technique. I love the perspective of the photo, and the contrast of colors with the neutral background, with just a few touches of texture and brushes to keep the eye moving across the panorama!
The July Creative Techniques challenge is about using gradients and the high-pass filter. Think you know about gradients? Here is a chance to learn or sharpen your skills!
Here is one of my favorites, from our very own Maya de Groot Designs, with so much gorgeous texture in this monochromatic layout.
July’s Copycat challenge features a wonderful template of postage-stamp images, used beautifully here by Iken, to show closeups telling the story of archery. I love the blending and the addition of the red hearts in some of the photo slots.
The color challenge is usually my favorite, and this month is no exception. The challenge is to use a color-photo on a black & white background. The gallery is full of the most gorgeous pages, it was almost too hard to pick one, so I fell back on my old habit of falling for a cute doggie page, this one from momtotriplets04…how cute are both fur baby and mom? I love the stripes, the embellishments, and the precious quote from one of my favorite authors.
July’s Rotating Challenge is a member spotlight, this month featuring the lovely pages of Scrap-genie.
I loved Scrap-genie’s sunset page here, and lifted it to this.
