Challenge Weeks 13-14

Week of August 24th

Challenge : Monochromatic

:icongillianivy: suggested by GillianIvy 

Cyanotype, selenium and sepia coated coffee stains, black & white and greyscale...  So many shades of monoshade!  Two tone is a favorite of mine, and why not add an extra splash of color?  I've always loved those black & white portraits with a subtle shade thrown in (or not so subtle).  Journal skins designed with a limited color palette tend to look elegant and refined.  Sort of a nod to the classics.

Week of August 31st

Challenge : Back to School

:iconcelvas::iconposerfan: suggested by Celvas & poserfan 

Well, this is ironic...  The reason last week's articles are late is because of this very thing.  I started third grade homeschool on Monday last week and proceeded to be completely exhausted of my will to do things like check my e-mail, write articles, click 'like' on Facebook...  Instead, my minuscule free time I spent watching shows I missed and longing for more free time.  I fantasized about being one of those Moms who drinks wine after school each day as I took a looooong shower.  And no, I don't even really drink.  The last alcohol I had was probably around St. Patrick's Day.  

One of my favorite things about back to school season would be all the supplies.  So many beautiful notebooks and pens!  And things I do not need, but I want them!  So, it is the very first thing I think of.  Images of pens and papers and composition notebooks (why do they all have that marbled cowprint look?), lunchboxes and book bags...  And of course, school buses!  And let's not forget classroom decorations.  So many ideas for journal skins.

Hello everyone!

I have an idea for an open source library for skin creators with things such as blank templates, snippets, tips and tricks and more.

Please let me know what you think!…

When uploading a journal skin, how do I get a preview image for it? Before, I've just previewed it in the journal skin writer and taken a picture of half of it with my snipping tool, but I've seen other people upload them with full and better preview images of them, and I want to be like those people but I don't know what to do. Help? :hmm:
