    $ Simply Inspired Contest - Deadline 3/27/09

    Challenge: Get Creative With Brushes
    Deadline: March 27, 2009


    The new Simply Inspired Contest starts now! We're revisiting a classic and looking for more layouts featuring that most basic of digital tools: the brush. Whether it's simply stamped onto your layout, used to mask a photo (as described in Pattie Knox's DSM Wire article) or put to work in some other creative way, we want to see what you can come up with!

    Upload your layout(s) on or before March 27 to the Simply Inspired Gallery here at Designer Digitals. You could be the lucky winner who receives a $10 gift certificate to the DD store and get his or her layout published in the DSM newsletter!

    We canít wait to see your simply inspired layouts!

    Winner's Circle

    Congratulations to last monthís Simply Inspired Challenge winner, Linda Hoenstine! Inspired by the colors and shapes of our art inspiration piece, she created this balanced, yet lively composition. She received a $10 gift certificate to Designer Digitals for her inspired design. Congratulations, Linda!

    Here's mine. I basically just stamped with my brushes. I also used them to make the date sticker and the alphabet block. TFL!
