itunes: grunge and sparkle

Heya, welcome to this month’s iTunes challenge! It’s nearly Christmas, the days are getting hectic, but that doesn’t let you off from going outside your comfort zone in this challenge. So wrap up warm, grab a hot chocolate and get ready to scrap.

This month I’ve chosen this album cover by the Pixies. There’s a lot going on, plenty of elements to be inspired by.

I was drawn first by the shapes. There’s masking in the background, then those geometric lines in front. The cutting files products in the store could be a good fit here. I can see the use of a large title with those numbers in the bottom right section. Then there’s the colour scheme, could make a good guy page.

I decided to use a recent photo of my boy. He made this decoration at school, and it’s hanging on the Christmas tree now. We figure it’s looking judgy, checking if anyone snaffles a chocolate from the tree! I used Dirt, grit and grids brushes and stamps No. 01; Canvas Cardstocks Paper Pack No. 13; Wood Veneer December No. 02; Filed Notebook 4×6 Journalers No. 01; ARTpack Winter brushes and stamps No. 02; Paint it gold No. 01; Wintery Clusters brushes and stamps No. 01; Cut Ups: Christmas; Berry Fine Journalers No. 01; Woodland Decor stickers and stamps No. 01; Seasons Sparkle Christmas Scrapbooking Bundle.

Now it’s your turn, Katie’s generously provided a freebie for the challenge. Show me your take on this album cover. Post your pages in the itunes challenge gallery so we can leave some love. Remember to post your progress on the monthly challenges in the monthly rewards thread to earn store discount.

Happy scrapping!
