Hello, Darksiders and Steampunks!

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!

This challenge will be a place to share all your dark, quirky, steampunk, and unusual projects. Don't be scared to share!

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

For June, what automatically popped into my head was June Cleaver from Leave it to Beaver. So let's use the 50's and 60's as our topic for this month. This can be anything retro or vintage: this can be colors, styles, subject matter, memories, etc from this time period.

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. Please post your projects between June 1 and June 30, 2012.
2. 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.
3. Everyone is welcome to join this challenge at any time
4. 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.
5. If you receive love, please return love
6. You must participate regularly (at least a couple of posts throughout the month) to be entered in the drawing
7. 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!

This will be hard for me, but I'm willing to try. (That's why they call it a challenge right? LOL) I even have some paper in mind... Hmmmm.

Hi everyone!

I'm in! It's been a couple of months since I last tried this one and I'm ready to give it another shot - I love the IDEA of dark and steampunky,etc, but I haven't quite gotten the knack of putting together the layouts! It's superfun to practice though, isn't it? So....June Cleaver, huh? Okey-dokey.
