I have been trying to come up with a new color scheme for this Theme Challenge I mentioned last month for the DSC website,
original post here: http://www.digiscrapcafe.net/t837-upcoming-challenge-preview#1790
but am blank. Therefore, I will leave the color schemes to the designers who participate in this challenge,
and choose the winners accordingly.
I am sure I will like more than one theme you guys come up with, and everyone who participates will receive
a prize, most likely free kits of your choice also, but the winner whose design I choose for the splash page,
http://www.digiscrapcafe.com will win the $50 worth of kits etc. Everyone will get something who participates.
I would prefer the theme set be created in PSD or PXD layers if possible, and for those who do not have
PS Elements, or don't use Pixlr (a layered PXD file) the theme set which should also include blank buttons and banner
will be fine. Having the program or not, will not determine the winner or whether or not I choose the theme.
I only ask because it makes it easier on me in the longrun. ;)
Basically I am looking for a creative theme, but basic enough to fit a wider range of audience. In other words, I am gearing toward the average adult (mommy, teacher, student, person) so the theme should be neutral, rather than appealing to kids, children, or to just one type of audience. I need and hope to use these themes on a general basis through out my networks, and as you all know, I do tend to spread myself way too thin. I am trying to change that this year, hense why I beleive I have now had a mental block since the beginning of the year. My overwhelming projects and the directions they have all taken me in, has finally worn me down, and given me a huge artistic and creative block! Hope that makes sense lol.
Here are a few guidelines:
Button images should be 200 x 120 px..... in size
Other banners should be at least 400 x 100 px.... in size
And the header should be an average of 1100 x 248 in px size or anywhere in the dimensional vicinity lol.
These dimensions should allow for any other sizing I might need to do later on.
For those of you who would like to try using Pixlr to create this theme, I have included the link to the app
as well as a download of the existing theme in PXD layers so you can see and/or use as an example.
You will find the download here:
You must log in or join to access this download
This challenge will end March 31st, I will choose the winner by April 15th and I will display the new chosen theme by Earth day 4/20
I hope to see a lot of you participate in this fun challenge. Brenda has had a few great ideas since coming aboard as well,
so I hope things will be fun and exciting this year for us all!
Love to you all!
