    January 28: Darkle Challenge

    Hello everyone!! Woohoo!! You are almost there...you can do it!!

    I am so excited to be here for Day 28 to bring you a brand new challenge this year, inspired and designated by the ever creative Justine @bellbird

    Without further ado, here is the Darkle Challenge!! Here at the Lilypad, we have redefined this word to mean a dark background with sparkling, glittery, shiny elements.
    Dark + Sparkle = Darkle...get it??
    :giggle

    The requirements for this challenge are relatively simple...
    1. You must use a dark background paper – it can be patterned, but it must be dark.
    2. 75% of your elements must be either metallic, shiny or sparkly/glittery. Anything other than your picture or journaling will be counted as an element.
    3. 75% of your elements must be clustered around your picture(s)...no pocket pages will be allowed!!



    Here is the layout I made for this challenge

    And check out some of these awesome samples from our amazing Pollys!!
    The pages may not be available to see until they have been moved to a public gallery...patience please :)

    RECAP OF CHALLENGE REQUIREMENTS

    1. You must use a dark background paper – it can be patterned, but it must be dark.
    2. 75% of your elements must be either metallic, shiny or sparkly/glittery. Anything other than your picture or journaling will be counted as an element.
    3. 75% of your elements must be clustered around your picture(s)...no pocket pages will be allowed!!



    GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

    Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places:
    1. Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site).
    2. Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean.
    3. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish.
    Pages should contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).

    I can't wait to see the all the beautiful darkle pages you guys come up with!!

    This post saved for clarification and questions!!

    Is it kosher to use styles to add the metallic glitz, or does the original element need to be metallic?
    You can definitely use styles to add the metal or glitter!!! I know that we have a few designers that make some amazing ones!!

    I used my ACDSee tagging system to find all the glitter and metallic items that would go together. The credits are REALLY long!

    That was going to be my question - is it kosher to use styles to add the metallic glitz, or does the original element need to be metallic?

    Ohhh, I love sparkles! And they are even better when they are on a dark background - I'll be back with my LO.

    i believe that for this challenge the way that you make your elements 'sparkle' is up to you,you can use them straight up if you have suitable ones but you should also feel free to add styles to bring the sparkle!

    For a person who is not very glittery even though I own all sorts of glitter styles... I had a lot of fun creating this page.
    So, thankyou @bcnatty Natasha and @bellbird Justine
