itunes: Layers of meaning

Hiya, and welcome to this month’s itunes challenge. It’s the end of the school holidays here, we’ve all gone back today, but it’s not the end of summer yet. Plenty of time for scrapping those happy memories!

This month I was drawn to album covers using overlays, and chose this one by Taylor Swift.

There’s a lot to be inspired by here. It’s a deceptively simple design which looks great in black and white. I love the gradient from blank on the left to busy text on the right. The choice of fonts too, could inspire you to create a memorable title. Notice how the overlay sits in front of the photo.

Liz (Lizziet5) was happy to create a page for the challenge, and what a stunner! Her daughter is so pretty, and deserves a full page photo. I love the wordart Liz chose to emphasise her can-do attitude, the page bursts with energy! It’s a perfect colour scheme for summer too, with all that light denim blue.

Liz used Far and Wide Sentiments Brushes and Stamps; Far and Wide Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 02; Loosely Scripted Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 07; Messed Up Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 02; Watercolor Page Titles Brushes and Stamps No. 02; Watercolor Word Blocks Brushes and Stamps No. 01; Big Brushed Page Titles Brushes and Stamps No. 01; Watercolor Page Titles Brushes and Stamps No. 04 ; We are Blessed Brushes and Stamps; Cutting Files: Chunky Cuts Love No. 02; Fine Lines Border Lines Brushes and Stamps No. 12; Hand Scripted Brushes and Stamps No. 06; Hand Scripted Brushes and Stamps No. 07

Sylvia chose a gorgeous group shot to showcase. I love the vibrant red echoed in the glasses, and the depth created by the overlay. Sylvia created a great effect with the wordart in the lower section of the page too.

Sylvia used Graphed Notebook Paper Packs No3; Lightly Linens No8; Watery Typecast Blends Brushes and Stamps No. 03; Vintage Christmas Element Pack; Heart Pebbles No. 04.

I decided to use a fun photo from earlier in the summer when friends of ours hosted a barbecue. We’ve known this group of people since our University days, and it’s fun to catch up with each other, see how our lives are going. Many of us now have kids, and I love seeing them play together.

I used challenge freebie; Say Hello Family Brushes and Stamps;
Textured Cardstock: Ridge Paper Pack

Now it’s your turn, we’d love to see your pages inspired by this album cover. Katie’s generously provided a freebie for the challenge. Post your pages in the iTunes Inspiration gallery. Remember to keep track of your pages using 100% Designer Digitals products in our rewards scheme participation thread.

Happy scrapping!
