Mad March Competition – Round 4

March 26, 2012 Sarah Coggins

This challenge is definitely getting tougher with each round! My jaw dropped when I saw the list of requirements for Round 4 on Friday afternoon. It took some time, but I pulled it off.

DHD Mad March: Round 4

The requirements:

  1. Warp three shadows – top left circle, photo and large right circle
  2. Use 4 circles
  3. Subject: All About Me
  4. Scrap from one kit, and use every single paper in the kit Right Now by Karla Dudley. Used all 15 papers (5 along top, 4 along bottom, 4 on circles, 1 on background and 1 on brackets).
  5. Take a self-portrait and use it on your layout
  6. Use a stroke or outline somewhere on your page – around photo
  7. Use song lyrics on your page ‘These Are Days’ by 10,000 Maniacs. Around circles to right of photo.
  8. Journal directly on your photo
  9. Choose three layouts from the gallery and use as inspiration “Click Click” by claudiaharvey (photo placement & tilt, title placement, paper borders at top and bottom). “That’s My Stuth” by Audrey Neal (paper borders at top and bottom, overlapping circles). “Snowed In” by missy-backues (curved text path).
  10. Use a brush to distress your text – used Brush 3 from Right Now elements on ‘me’ in title.
  11. Use brackets on your page

Supplies: Right Now papers & elements by Karla Dudley; Adobe Jenson Pro, Century Gothic and Janda Everyday Casual fonts.
