Papercrafters Corner..Magazine Challenge #152...


Recently whilst I was bumbling around blogs I stumbled across Papercrafters Corner - a great resource and they have an awesome challenge.

They give you a magazine cover as inspiration, you can pull out any of the elements for your project.

Here is the magazine cover for the current challenge #152 -

I love it and immediately thought it would make an awesome art journal spread.

So many of the elements inspired my spread..some are obvious, vintage lady, car, birds, map. I also used the colours from the background and the car to inspire my colour backdrop.

The grid in the car inspired me to stencil a grid here and there.

The map was the basis for my 16 scalloped rectangles, which if you look closely are the US states ;)

Just below the lady in the inspiration image there is a small piece of text, so I added some random text to my spread, you can also see subtle references to 1921 throughout my spread.

Finally I used the signpost as the main inspiration for my spread, I used the New York reference throughout and interpreted the signpost as arrows - all over.

This was such a fun spread to create, I can't wait for next week's inspiration cover.
