View Full Version : March: Art Inspiration challenge

03-21-2009, 08:55 AM
Let the art of Leonid Afremov inspire you. Use the colors, theme, emotion, style, maybe you have a photo that reminds you of this piece of art, or whatever floats your boat. Create a LO, card or altered item with your inspiration.

Now that's an interesting challenge!

03-21-2009, 10:31 AM
very interesting! Who'd ever thought of that??=]

03-21-2009, 11:39 AM
UH! I'm not sure I even know where to begin with this challenge. Got to think about it some.

I will have to play when I get back from running errands...but I get to go to my fav LSS, the Nook, maybe I can find something there to help with this...baseball stuff perhaps?

AHHHHHH Bonnie!!! You're going to the NOOK? I wanna go I wanna go I wanna go. I miss that place --- i wanna go, too!

I dropped about $30 at the Nook and my DH another $25, plus they were having an open house today along with the Paper Chase event. We just got back after running errands, including eeeek buying M's tickets so now I can get back to scrapping!

Now, Bonnie, I'm really interested in how you will tie this in with baseball.

I think you did great on pulling the color from the picture. Love the layout. :) :)

03-22-2009, 08:32 AM
Great use of color, Bonnie ~ I like the shapes of color they're a great playing field to showcase the pics.

03-22-2009, 09:04 AM
Wow, Bonnie, I can totally see the color inspiration. The swirls kind of relate to the tree branches, too.

03-22-2009, 09:05 AM
I did one with the colors, too, but it photographed so poorly that I don't even want to post it. It looks REALLY bad in the photo, but kind of cool in realy life - I have no idea why.

03-22-2009, 11:52 AM
I tried re-photographing it, but it didn't seem to help. I'll post anyway.
Inspiration: colors, man and woman

Cass-I really, really like your LO, I don't know why you don't. I should scraplift this.

03-22-2009, 12:06 PM
I love both of your layouts!

03-22-2009, 12:32 PM
Cass ~ that is one awesome layout! I like that you used the couple image for your inspiration and the layout is so so so awesome!

03-22-2009, 01:22 PM
great layouts Bonnie and Cass. I was kinda lost on this challenge I may have to give it a try later.

03-22-2009, 01:41 PM
I did it!!! :D When I first saw the picture I was immediately drawn to the bright yellow area of the trees. So I used the yellow with hints of red and orange as my inspiration. I made a birthday card. I used the orange as the back piece. I covered it with a piece of yellow that I used a border punch on so part of the orange shows at the bottom. I put a piece of red ribbon just over the top of the border. I used a glue rub on of a butterfly that I covered in red glitter. My border is the one that has a scallop and then a point. I used my red stickles to put a dot in the middle of each scallop. It's pretty basic, but I think it's pretty.

Where is your photo of what you did Cindy?

03-22-2009, 01:46 PM
I can't upload photo's on my computer right now :(. Hubby has to fix it.

by the way the man and woman cuttlebug dies I found on clearance yesterday at Mikes for $1.99. I thought they were kind of fun.

I found these at M's too and scooped them up, however I paid $2.99 each for them, but worth it.

03-22-2009, 04:14 PM
:) Cass, your layout looks great. :)

03-22-2009, 06:08 PM
Gee - our M's never have the deals you all seem to find. (I'm just whining, pass the crackers) WTG!

03-22-2009, 09:18 PM
you BOTH did great with this challenge!

03-23-2009, 04:03 PM

Love it!!
