June Music Challenge *WINNER*

Post by pawprints »

Wow it was awesome to see the different ways you all got inspired by this album cover! So many beautiful creations by all of you!

The winner, chosen using Random.org, is…
#4 4kids_and-crafting!

Congratulations! I have sent out your gift card! Thanks to everyone that participated!

 


For this month my challenge is to use the Sara Bareilles album cover below for inspiration. Use anything about it that inspires you. I found a lot of inspiration in it and after finishing my sample layout I am finding even more inspiration and may do another. I hope you all can get some inspiration from it too.

Image

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

You may combine with one other challenge that allows it.

Multiple submissions are allowed up to a limit of 3.

Post your submissions 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 of all, have fun!

Here is my page. I was inspired by the white on white background and the flowing of rainbow colors. Now that I am looking at it again I am loving the rainbow of jewel tones so that may be another layout that I will work on.

Image

Hope you all have fun with this.

I got my inspiration for the light background, and then added bright colors such as the green and red

This cover image gave me a lot of inspiration. I used the embossing and die-cuts for the white on white, the piano inspired me to use the music embossing foyer, and the gems inspired the colors of the flowers and the gems in the centers.

I'm definitely going to make another card for this challenge.

The piano made me think of my mom and grandpa…he gave her the piano I have in my home now back in the 60s. I also drew inspiration from the layered squares and I distressed the edges and layered them to mimic the squares in the photo. I also liked how the squares in the photo kind of sprayed out of the piano…so I had flowers spraying out from each side of the photo mat.

I used a white background and I used several different color butterflies flying up and across the page in replica of the album cover.

Beautiful album cover!  I was inspired by the rainbow-like curves in the background and the mosaic-like tiles in rainbow order.  Hubby thought I was crazy to sit there gluing little tiny pieces down !

Great challenge. I was inspired by the white on white (the zipper and the flowers) as well as the jewel tone rainbow colors. Also liked the triangle shape of colors. Not exactly sure I love the rhinestones but will live with it.  Way different from most things I do so it was really fun.

I had to re-do this...I REALLY did not like the original. It was bothering me so much.  Anyway, here is the re-do. White on white with the triangle shape.

I love it and it is really beautiful! I get what you mean when you are just not happy with something and you have to change it. It is so pretty with just all the white on white!

I had so much fun with this layout!  I was inspired by the overall design of the album cover. I used a white cardstock background. The books are in a color order beginning with yellow/light green to light orange/orange. I used solid black for my title and quote and put them on the sides. Added a wooden floor to the bottom.
