Hi folks, welcome to another iTunes challenge. It’s been a strange few months, I hope you’ve been able to take time to scrap. I thought I’d go classic this month with one of my favourite albums. Mr Blue Sky is one of my favourite songs of all time.
When I looked at the cover, I was drawn to the curves. I love using circles on my pages, they give a great deal of movement and flow to the layout. Then I focused on the colours. There are rainbows all around just now here, to cheer people up as we take our exercise. Children have drawn them for their windows, or in chalk on driveways. Here the colours are set against a black background which always creates a bold effect. There’s still space for a title in the corners of the page.
I asked members of the creative team how they could be inspired by this cover and they didn’t disappoint!
First up is Audrey (Adrianita) with this gorgeous page of her daughter. I love the softer rainbow colours she used, and how gorgeous is the watery mask effect! You can read her description of how she achieved it when she posts the page in the gallery. The stitched swirl links the circles, and adds even more movement.
Audrey used this months challenge freebie as well as Stitched Frame Clusters No. 02; Stitched Frame Clusters No. 03; Botanical Bliss Element Pack No. 01; Jelly Serif Alphabet No. 02; Beloved Element Pack; Text Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 06; Splatters Brushes and Stamps No. 05; Twisted Dots Brushes and Stamps No. 02; Watery Photo Masks No. 16; Arctic Whites Paper Pack No. 04.
Next Sharon created this poignant page about the reality of schooling at the moment. The bold colours and graphic shapes make this page stand out, and I love the addition of the emoji flair.
Now it’s your turn, show us your masterpieces based on this inspiration. Katie’s generously provided a challenge freebie which you can use for your page if you wish. Post your pages in the itunes inspiration gallery so we can leave some love. Remember to keep track of your challenge pages in the May Challenges Sign-in thread to earn store discount.
