    Default Week 1 - Black & White to Color *Q&A Thread*

    Week 1 - Black & White to Color *Q&A Thread*

    This thread is for Questions specifically about the Week 1 Challenge.
    I will keep this top post updated with the Questions and Answers as I reply to them.

    I prefer you keep the chatter out of this thread please, it is hard for me to keep up on questions when the thread gets full of chatter. Thank you for understanding!

    Question: Can I use a template?
    Answer: Yes, you ARE allowed to use templates for this challenge.

    Question: Do I need to use products from GingerScraps?
    Answer: Yes, you must use products from current GingerScraps designers for all your Survivor Layouts.

    Question: Does it have to use 100% GS products? There's a tiny bit of non GS word art I want to use...
    Answer: well.... I suggest you follow all the rules, I HATE it when I have to disqualify people for not following rules. The rules for this challenge state- ALL products must be from GS designers, and credits listed in the gallery.

    Question: Do the products need to be current GS products?
    Answer: Yes the products must be 100% from a current GS Designer.

    Question: Can we RECOLOR products to be b&w if we don't have black/white elements or papers in our stash??
    Answer: Yes! Your welcome to recolor!

    Question: Can we use the daily downloads
    Answer: Yes! You can use Daily Downloads, Welcome Wagon, FB freebies, etc. As long as it if from a designer currently selling at GS now, you are allowed to use it.

    Question: Does gray count in black and white?
    Answer: Yes, gray is acceptable

    Question: Does it have to be B&W literally or can Sepia work?
    Answer: It has to be Black and White (and shades of gray).

    Question: Are only current designers from Gingerscraps allowed? I have a large stash from old designers that have either retired or are not longer selling here.
    Answer: Only current GS designers.

    Question: Can we use designers who sell here, but perhaps got the kit at another store and it's not in this store??
    Answer: Yes that is perfectly ok!

    Question: But the challenge rules state. You must use ALL 100% GingerScraps products when creating your Layout.
    Can you please clarify so that there is no confusion!
    Answer: The products you are using must be created by a current GS designer, it does not have to be sold in the GS shop.

    Question: The layout must have TWO Color photos, they must be smaller then the B&W photo. The color photos should be surrounded by color papers and elements. Only 2, or at least 2?
    Answer: Two Photos please

    Question: In the rules its mentioned that we have to use black&white elements surrounding the b&w photo, but I understand it right that there must be such elements but not ONLY. Right?!?
    Answer: Visually the B&W photo should be surrounded by B&W and the color surrounded by color. We want to achieve the look as if we are going from B&W into color.

    Here is a copy and paste of the rules that should answer your question.

    Please let me know if you need any more clarification. I know sometimes it is hard with a lot of instructions.

    *Surrounding the B&W photo you must have B&W elements, clusters, or frames, the remaining space of the layout must be all in color.

    *The layout must have TWO Color photos, they must be smaller then the B&W photo. The color photos should be surrounded by color papers and elements.
