Hello everyone, I am extending the DT call to October 31st, so if you are interested please apply and by all means please post the call on your blogs. I will still announce the selected DTs on the 31st of October.  Thanks!

We are excited to announce our first design team call for the Sketches with Color Challenge blog.  Do you like creating layouts using sketches? Do you have a blog?  Do you have a Facebook page?  If so, I am looking for 5 people would like to be a part of our new challenge blog. 

SWC has been created to combine sketches with color combination to help you get those photos scrapped and to have fun while doing it.  Our challenges will be bi-weekly and will run the entire month.  Challenges will consist of various sketches, colors and perhaps even twists.  The challenges could be:

Sketch + Color
Sketch + One Color
Sketch + Color +Twist

Before submitting, be sure to read the important details below:

  • Various creative styles from clean and simple to elegant and elaborate.
  • Must have a Facebook page (this is how we keep our DT informed)
  • Individuals willing to commit to a three month term (November 1st-February 1st, 2013)
  • Create two layouts from given sketches and criteria each month.
  • Comment on ALL entries.
  • Be active in the DT Facebook group
  • Candidates must have a blog, be on Facebook and be able to take clear photos in good lighting.
  • To be a part of a new, upcoming and hopefully successful sketch blog.
