Hi, OA fans! Alex here bringing you a fun challenge.
I love finding my inspiration in book/magazine covers. For today's challenge, I have picked three different covers for you. Let them inspire you! Their design, colors, theme... the choice is yours!
I was inspired by the grid design of the first cover and by the colors of the third. I also incorporated the big title to the left of the photo from the second cover. This is the result:
I have used the Travel Girl collection, one of my favorite OA lines ever!
I cut the white grid with my Cameo and placed it on top of gorgeous Travel Girl papers.
The layout is about my daughter and how much love she bears inside her little body. I am sure that she would embrace the entire world if she only could.
I have used a piece of a border sticker to create a trail behind the plane.
For my title I have mixed Travel Girl and Daily Flash stickers.
Joining me today is Mou. Look at this gorgeous layout she has created inspired by these three covers!
Here is what Mou had to say about her layout:
"When I saw Alex's inspiration pieces, I loved them all... the clean grid of the first piece, the boldness of the second one, and the colors of the third. I wanted to make something that followed a grid, had bold graphics, and several colors. I cut out blocks from the 'Compose' 12 x 12 paper from the Daily Flash collection, snipped their corners, arranged them in a grid with photos and then came back to the basic arrangement of the book title in inspiration piece # 1 to include my handwritten title. Besides, I used a roller stamp to stamp the phrase 'I Heart This' near the right side of the layout just to break the linearity a bit like in the 2nd piece. I added some buttons from the Travel Girl Collection near the title and splattered some paint. Thanks for this fun creative challenge Alex!"
Thank you SO much, Mou! Your layout is breathtaking!
I hope you will join us and create something inspired by these covers. If you do, please share your work with us! Be sure to upload your work to OA's Flickr gallery. We would love to see it!
Thanks for stopping by today!
