Hello, Darksiders!

I love all the creativity and artistry I see here at scrapbook.com by all of its members and I was a member of this site for some time before I noticed that there wasn’t too much of the darker side of scrapping represented here. And by darker side I mean the use of darker colors, subjects including Goth, Punk, and Emo, or styles like steampunk and distress. I love the Darker Side and want to see more of it!

So therein lays the challenge: Create layouts , cards, tags, altered art, etc... that are out of your comfort zones. Come on over to the dark side!

In celebration of Earth Day this month, this month's topic will be Earthy. This can be a project about the Earth, dirt, recycling; can include "earthy" colors such as browns, greens, and blues.

You can interpret the challenge any which way you like but remember to keep it dark! Let your imagination and your dark side loose! Have fun! I can’t wait to see what you all will come up with!

Rules for this challenge:

1. Some simple rules:
2. Please post your projects between April 1 and April 30, 2012.
3. In the beginning of the next month, I will choose a winner randomly either by using a random number generator or the old tried and true names in a hat method.
4. Everyone is welcome to join this challenge at any time
5. Post as many projects as you like for this challenge. Each one will count as an entry. Entries must be submitted before midnight of the last day of the month.
6. If you receive love, please return love
7. You must participate regularly (at least five posts throughout the month) to be entered in drawing
8. If you’ve won the previous month, you can only share your pages this month. You are eligible to win again the following month.

Linking Layouts to the thread:

1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Go to the Share section on the left-hand side and click on ‘Share Anywhere'.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

Allowing Public Embedding:

1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

The winner of the challenge will receive a lovely RAK from me!

An idea to use with keeping with the recycling theme is to use soda/beer cans as metal accents on your page. You can use your punches and embossing folders with them.

This is a card I did a couple years back

I've used them to create butterflies on a few pages. They work great - and the added bonus is that it sharpens your punches and diecuts when you cut the metal.

You just gotta be careful of the shards!
