Oct Mid-Month Challenge

Postby AnnaB » Oct 15th, '08, 4:19 am

I found this cool ad when flipping through a magazine recently and I immediately knew that I wanted to create a layout inspired by the ad. All the different lines in this image are so cool.

The challenge for you this month is to use the ad as your source of inspiration and to create a layout. You can be inspired by any part of the ad and this can be interpreted in anyway that you feel is right for you. Please upload your layout to the gallery and post it or link it back here. Please also tell us how you were inspired by the ad.

Everyone who is joining in will be entered in a drawing for a gift certificate!

Here is the ad!

Image

And here is my layout, using the October kit. I created my own "shelf" by cutting strips of cardstock and attaching them to a frame. The lace cardstock and a couple of the photos are attached directly to the strips/frame and the other photos and the patterned papers are attached to the bottom sheet of cardstock. I then used foam squares to attach the frame to the background, to obtain a 3D-effect.

My intention was that you were to use the ad that I posted. :) If someone has put a lot of effort into finding another ad I wouldn't want to exclude that person from the challenge, but try to use the ad from my first post in the first place. Does that sound ok?
