Once Upon A...Sketch & Colour Stories Inspiration

It's time for a new challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch and this month we are doing things a little different. We have teamed up with Color Stories Inspiration (CSI) for the month of September. 

Het is tijd voor een nieuwe wedstrijd bij Once upon a Sketch en deze maand gaan de dingen wat anders dan normaal. Once Upon a Sketch werkt deze maand samen met Color Stories Inspiration (CSI).
Dit betekent dat er deze maand niet één, maar vier wedstrijden zijn. Elke wedstrijd zal online komen op zaterdagochtend bij OUAS en bij CSI. Je hebt negen dagen de tijd om je lay-outs te uploaden. Je kunt gedurende de maand meedoen met zoveel wedstrijden als je wilt. Aan hoe meer wedstrijden je deelneemt, des te groter je kans op één van de mooie prijzen. 

Debbi Tehrani, owner of CSI, and  Nadia Canizzo, the founder of Once upon a Sketch, worked really hard behind the scenes to coordinate everything so we can provide you with cool challenges and PLENTY of inspiration through out September. We have invited members of CSI as well as our main sponsor 7 Dots Studio to also be our guests at Once Upon A..Sketch this month. 

First of all , there will be FOUR challenges here at Once Upon A..Sketch for September instead of our usual 1 challenge . This is because CSI has 4 challenges each month. Each challenge will be revealed on Saturday morning (Australian time) to coincide with the challenge reveals at CSI in the USA and you MUST remember that you will have just 9 days per challenge to enter your layouts here on our side bar. As you know usually our challenges are month long. 

Now, we know that Once Upon A..Sketch is not a colour challenge site like CSI but...we thought we would give you something different and something more exciting to try. Why not, right? 

Our winners here at Once Upon A..Sketch will be announced at the beginning of October and our Design Team will look at ALL the entries from ALL the challenges. So the more challenges you play along at, the more chances you have of being one of our challenge/prize winners or Top 5 Featured layouts. This is a little different to CSI who announce their "featured" layouts on a weekly basis. 

Lastly, everything will go back to normal in October and we will have a reveal October 1st as usual. So I hope you guys have fun and enjoy what we have planned for you. Don't forget that the entries for this challenge are due by 2:00pm Monday 17th of September Australian Eastern Standard Time.

Voor deze wedstrijd is de deadline 2:00 pm op maandag 17 september Australische tijd.  Voor alle details over de challenge, zie onderstaande afbeelding of klik hier
