It’s time for another iTunes challenge, perfect for working on while we dream of a change in the weather. I feel like I go to work and return home in the dark, but I know the days are getting longer. Snowdrops are starting to appear, then it’ll be the turn of the crocuses, and before we know it we’ll have spring!
This month I was very taken with the album cover designs of The Chainsmokers. They have several with a similar square frame in front of a range of elements. I decided to choose this cover for my challenge as I love the floral pattern behind the titlework.
I can see this design working for black and white photos, or for garden pages. Or maybe you could also be inspired by the watery effect, or by the rainbow of colours. I’d love to use this design for a fun page with bright paint effects on a dark background. Another use would be for a striking scrapbook album cover, with the title in the centre.
The creative team have created pages inspired by this cover to give you even more starting points. First up is Shannon (Shannonroller). I adore the B&W photo here, the design of the page allows it to shine. I love the kiss/ hug brush in the background, very bold but it doesn’t dominate. Finally, the choice of corner elements on the photo are perfect to tie all the layers together.Shannon used Plainly Woven Paper No. 4; Readymade Layers Love Clusters No. 3; Watercolor Page Titles No. 15 (all coming soon); Artsy Layered Blends No. 01; Watercolor Page Titles Brushes and Stamps No. 14; challenge freebie.
Next up is Sharon (Shannamay). She used this great photo of a kookaburra, letting it take centre stage on her page. I love the ‘you make me laugh’ wordart echoing the photo frame. The handwritten style font adds to the charm of the page.Sharon used Classic Curled Photo Frames No. 07; Watery Foliage No. 13; Watery Foliage No. 27; Blocking Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 01; Fallen Trails Element Pack; Fallen Trails Solids Paper Pack; Fall Garden Element Pack.
