Challenge Two - Inspired By...



Our next challenge over at Cocoa Daisy was to use one of the advertisments below as inspiration for a layout.

Who can guess where I found my inspiration?

I was inspired by the advert on the bottom right {Hugo Boss Fragrance I think...} & flipped it onto it's side to include a second smaller photo where the bottle neck/top is.

Normally I wouldn't have scrapped these photos this way. As they were "Spring Day" photos {where the kids wear civvies to school & take posies to the local Old Age Homes} I was thinking along the lines of light & bright...but they were in my "already printed" photo pile & as I was perusing my photo stack I thought they would be perfect for this interpretation.

It has been raining on & off here so I had to take these photographs inside to get them uploaded in time before the crop ended so they are not the best shots, sorry...

I used plain black Bazzill & I stamped with bubble wrap using L'il Davis pearl paint. My title uses a combination of yellow "Typo" font Thickers from my September Cocoa Daisy kit, white Doodlebug alphas & red Pink Paisley stickers from the October "In Stitches" Cocoa Daisy add-on.

I had fun layering up punched circle accents {using my Creative Memories circle punch & random offcuts} before adding flowers from Prima, American Crafts, Sassafras, DCWV & my local haberdashery store, with brads & buttons from Sassafras.

Okay so I took a few too many photos...

But I know that I enjoy studying every detail of all your creations so...

There you have it! The yellow chipboard squares come with the Yellow "Typo" Thickers from American Crafts. I would NEVER have bought bright yellow Thickers but I have to say that I have used them several times, so being part of a kit club really does encourage you to think outside the box!
