I've joined another digital designer contest; whoohoo! I think this one's going to be a blast. It's the Designer Survivor contest over at Brownie Scraps. It's loosely based on a television show with a similar name... we'll be working in teams (after the initial challenge) and there will be team member voting off rounds. I'm hoping to meet some nice people, learn new things and create new products along the way.
So, our first challenge was/is to create a template. Since I don't use templates myself and I've certainly never created one, this first round was indeed, for me, a challenge!
What I've done: I took one of my favorite layouts which I created when I was on the Creative Team of CanDesigns (who, sadly, is no longer designing) and created a template from that. After completing the template, I recreated my old layout (updated it I guess you could say).
Here's my layout (my mother with my siblings... long before I was born):
And here is the template I created:
The template is a freebie for you - you can download the files by going to my template preview in the Brownie Scraps Gallery.
There a lots of other fabulous templates there for you to download and play with. Enjoy; and keep checking back for updates on the progress of the contest!
