Blog Revamp...

Sunday, July 31, 2011

Well I've been thinking of revamping the '7 Card Draw' blog for a quite a while, adding some color and finally today I had some inspiration. I've been working on it for the last few hours. Hope everyone likes it.

I'd like to thank 'Paper Street Designs' for the use of their scrapbooking papers. They have a ton of digital scrapbooking supplies, even free items. Which are personal and commercial use OK. I recommend them to all. The scrapbook paper pack that I used for this layout is called 'Wet Paint', I changed it a bit by using a dry brush filter in photoshop.

ACEO Challenge #14

Sunday, July 3, 2011

Our "Father’s Day – Ties" Challenge had some really creative entries and again the voting was great. Roxanne of http://www.etsy.com/shop/mentalmulch is our winner! Congratulations to Roxanne.

Welcome to July and challenge #14! Before participating please make sure you have read the about page. That way you have an idea how things work.
I would like to propose a new way of determining the winning artwork. I would like to have some jurors judging the work and have a peoples choice award. The job of the juror would be to email me with their selections. I‘m looking for 5 jurors with each juror selecting between 3 - 5 works depending on the number of entries received. In the event of a tie, I would be the tie breaker. The peoples choice award would be the most popular of all the votes (from everyone – juror and non-juror). I can make up a badge similar to the ACEO Winner badge designed by Sunshineshelle for the jurors to display on the site of their choice and a new badge for the Peoples Choice award.

"At the Beach
