March/April Graphic Design Challenge *WINNERS*

Post by pawprints » Fri Mar 04, 2016 11:42 am

***** It was so much fun revisiting all those past challenges! I love how inspired everyone was to do so many of them and how well so many of you combined some of them! Thanks to everyone that played along!

Since I had 25 entries I am picking 2 winners!

Winner #1, courtesy of random.org, is…
#5 Deanna13

Winner #2, courtesy of random.org is…
#24 scrappininAK

Congratulations Deanna and Heather!! I sent out your gift cards! Enjoy! *****


I was looking through my past Graphic Design Challenges and realized that this month I have been running these challenges for four years!! My very first Graphic Design Challenge was in March of 2012! So I thought this month I would go back and do a rewind of the first year. I am posting the links to all 12 of my first year of Graphic Design Challenges, and you may do any of them you wish.

But hold on… there's a bonus…
If you combine more than one of the challenges into the same layout you will get an extra submission. So if you combine two of the challenges in one layout your submission will be listed twice. If you combine three in one layout then it will be listed three times. Combine four and it will be listed four times. And so on.

Please list which month's challenge/challenges that you used with your submission.

Here are the links to my first year of Graphic Design Challenges:
March 2012 Graphic Design Challenge - Black and White Photo and One Color Challenge
April 2012 Graphic Design Challenge - Theme and Tucking the Fonts in Your Title Challenge
May 2012 Graphic Design Challenge - iPod Nano Graphic Challenge
June 2012 Graphic Design Challenge- Two Different Aspects Challenge
July 2012 Graphic Design Challenge - One Large Word Title Challenge
August 2012 Graphic Design Challenge - Negative Space Challenge
September 2012 Graphic Design Challenge - Hanging Objects Challenge
October 2012 Graphic Design Challenge - Color Pop on Black Challenge
November 2012 Graphic Design Challenge - Album Cover Large Photo Background Challenge
December 2012 Graphic Design Challenge - Title Wave Challenge
January 2013 Graphic Design Challenge - Cropped Title Challenge
February 2013 Graphic Design Challenge - I Heart Challenge

Open to paper, digi, hybrid, cards, crafts, or whatever this inspires you to create.

Multiple submissions are allowed, and this month I am not putting a limit on it since there are 12 months worth of challenges you can do. I just ask that if you don't use the same challenge more than three times, unless you are combining it with one or more of the others.

For this month I am not allowing combining with any other March or April challenges. The only combining allowed is among the 12 challenge links that I have posted.

As usual I will be running this challenge for two months, so post your creations to this thread by the end of April. A random winner of all participants will receive a $5 ACOT GC from me!

Have fun with this and I can't wait to see all of your creative ideas!

Here is a page I did getting inspiration from a combination of my April 2012 (Theme and Tucking the Fonts in Your Title Challenge) and November 2012 (Album Cover Large Photo Background Challenge) challenges. I actually have been working on other pages and will post them when I get them done.

Image

My inspiration for this page is from a combination of my October 2012 (Color Pop on Black) and my January 2013 (Cropped Title Challenge) challenges.

What a wonderful page example, Barb.  I want that dog...what a sweetie!  And this is so much fun, going back and getting a chance for a do-over (Or a "DO'!) with all those choices!  Thank you for the challenge!
Always remember that you are unique----
just like everybody else.

Neat challenge - I like the twist of combining them onto one.  I wasn't here in 2012, so these will all be new to me.

I did the October 2012 Challenge: Used a black background and only bright papers, white title and had to use something white against the black background. White stars (stickers and clips).

I went with the I Heart challenge to highlight my love of tea and the background history story my father-in-law wrote me about the particular Welsh tea he sent me.

I combined 3 of them together:

March 2012: b/w photo, white background, and bringing one color into the photo (chose royal blue, using it throughout my layout, and my brother's cuma laude medal)
July 2012: One large word title, overlapping my photo
Jan 2013: Cropped title (covering parts of the "C" and "S" with veneer stars
