May/June Graphic Design Challenge *WINNERS*

Post by pawprints » Tue May 19, 2020 9:30 pm

Wow Cherries so many really creative photos looking down at your subjects! I loved them all and all the layouts showcasing them! And since I had over 20 entries I am picking two winners!

Winner #1, randomly chosen using RandomNum iPhone app, is…
#15 beachlover

Winner #2, randomly chosen using RandomNum iPhone app, is…
#6 scrappinmom99

Congrats to Ann and Anne-Marie! I have ordered your gift cards so you should be receiving them soon!

Thanks to everyone that participated!

 


Yes Cherries it's finally here. It took a while for me to catch up after all the NSD festivities, but I am finally getting this challenge up.

Sometimes in graphic design you will see a photo taken looking straight down at the subject. Maybe it's a cup of coffee, or a plate of food, or open paint cans. You may see photos like this used in ads, in brochures, on pages or covers of magazines, or maybe even on a menu or on a website. Below are some examples of this that I found on the web.

You can see the effect of looking straight down at something, seeing what you would not be able to see from looking at it from a regular point of view. I love the kind of stunning photos you can get this way, and the things you can capture that you wouldn't normally get.

So my challenge is for you to take a picture of something (or someone) looking straight down at it (or them), and then scrap it. Look for a good shot of something that you would not be able to see from a regular point of view.

Open to paper, digi, hybrid, cards, crafts, or whatever this inspires you to create.

Multiple submissions is allowed up to a limit of 3.

You may combine with one other challenge that allows combining.

Post your submission to this thread by midnight (whenever midnight is for you) June 30th and a random winner of all participants will receive a $5 ACOT GC from me!

Most all all, have fun!

Here is my layout. I took this photo of JJ when she was here one day when she was 5 months old, asleep in her play yard. I remember looking down at her sleeping on her tummy and it just melted my heart, so I took a photo from that point of view. I love how I was able to capture the sweetness and the memory of that moment.

Here is a layout from my gallery that I did using a photo looking down at Aiden playing in the play yard here when he was little. I love how he was looking up at me.

I hope you all can have fun with this and be inspired to take some really awesome photos!

What a great challenge, and love your page examples.  I love getting different perspectives when i am  on vacation, but generally I focus on looking UP, like through tall trees or at buildings.  Will be fun to find something DOWN!
Always remember that you are unique----
just like everybody else.

Here is mine, I used my Rumba as the graphic design, I took a picture of it then designed it on the Silhouette to see if it would look OK.

Here is what my layout turned out like.
