Tagged: July Challenge - Pick an idea
July 5, 2019 at 8:43 pm #31049
When creating graphics projects, we are always inspired by things we see, whether it is in the same area, or from totally different sources.
In this challenge, I will be posting one graphics project and you get to pick an idea from it and create your own. In the scrapbooking world, some people will use this type of inspiration and try to replicate a project, as closely as possible. That is ok if that is what you want, but I prefer to offer you an array of options where you can pick at least ONE idea and run with it. Is it a color combination? Is it a particular element? Is it a special effect you want to try? Is it an arrangement that you never thought of? It does not matter.
Here is your inspiration:
And once you post your project, tell us what particular element inspired you that you incorporated into yours.July 12, 2019 at 4:40 am #31295
Hello Scrapbook Campers. I love cardboard so that is what came to me when I viewed the graphic offered by Cassel for inspiration. Unsplash delivered a couple of photos, the square man and the city buildings. I stumbled across the cubby photo on a craft ideas website and the cabin is exactly that … a cabin, and it is called the Wikkelhouse and it uses cardboard as the main building material … go figure! The paper, frames, alpha, and elements are all from Pixel Scrapper. Thanks for takin a peek.July 12, 2019 at 7:06 am #31299
Fantastic approach of the cardboard theme, Annie 🙂July 12, 2019 at 8:07 am #31302
Great job, Annie!July 12, 2019 at 9:40 am #31309
Annie, the whole layout is great! It has many details: stitching, staples, torn pieces, etc. I love the square man.July 12, 2019 at 10:14 am #31313
Libera, Michele, and Cristina, thank you very much for your lovely comments, greatly appreciated my friends. <3July 13, 2019 at 12:39 am #31329
This one didn’t quite turn out as intended … the idea went awry somewhere! Not to worry, will give me an excuse to have another go. I saved this page as shabby lodgings but the lovely scrapkit I used (DSB-collab-WhenFallMeetsWinter) was too elegant for the photos, so I think that is where I lost it! The photos are from Unsplash and were taken by different photographers, top – Dane Deaner, and bottom – Ben Cliff, however both are of the same ruined cabin on Mammoth Lakes, United States. The layout was inspired by one from noreimerreason. My sole contribution was the rope which was a cass tube, but … I did manipulate it with the mouse, lol! Thanks for takin a peek.July 13, 2019 at 3:09 am #31333
Lovely pages Annie !…. i think your shabby lodgings winter memories page turned out great… for my eye the photos work well with all your elements…. well done!

Annie, I agree with Dawn, also for my eyes the photos work well with the kit… The colors match perfectly, and the page turned out great! You are on a roll, and each layout is lovelier than the other!July 13, 2019 at 6:56 am #31341
Annie, I agree with Dawn and Christina. Be sure we wait for your next work …July 13, 2019 at 8:47 am #31342
Annie, sometimes our best projects are ones that went awry. I love this page. Your idea of finding and featuring pics of the same cabin by two different photogs was brilliant! I’ll have to try that one of these day.

Dawn, Cristina, Libera, and Michele, thank you so much for your lovely comments on my work. You always gee me up to do bigger and better things, 🙂 <3July 14, 2019 at 1:25 am #31367
Hello again Scrapbook Campers. This time I was inspired to go for a winter theme. The photo is of a house covered in snow from a blizzard and was taken by Biegun Wschodni from Unsplash. Scrapkit used was “True Blue” by Clarey. Alpha by Marisa Lerin, coffee stain stamp by Brooke Gazarek, and snow baby template by Jessica Dunn, all from Pixel Scrappers. The rope I created from a picture tube by Cass and I also used the weaving technique provided by Cass’ Master Class – Title Work. Brushes used are by a-dozi and eraserx. The tree stamp on the lower left is from a kit “Inked” by G and T Designs … beautiful work. Thanks for takin a peek.July 14, 2019 at 7:48 am #31370
Hello Annie, very nice page… love the softness of colour with the pop of colour in the blue element. you have convinced me to go and look at my Masterclass video on Title Work.. I was going to do the tutorials from it ages ago but haven’t yet got to it…. love the weaving effect of the rope in the title.. it is a joy to view your creative work Annie!…. well done.

Love everything about it, Annie. I am amazed how you can take so many elements from different resources and put it all together like that.
~ MicheleJuly 14, 2019 at 10:12 am #31382
Annie, so many elements and techniques and the end result is great… I like very much how you used the interlacing technique… It made the title pop up.
Are you sure you cannot join us in time? 😀July 14, 2019 at 10:48 am #31389
Annie, what a chance for us that you are snowed in …LOL!! This makes you most creative and us really happy to see the various results of your “productivity”.July 15, 2019 at 5:35 pm #31446
