iTunes Challenge: May

Hi friends, Trace (tracermajig) here with you for our May iTunes Cover Challenge. I have something fun and a little different this month and I hope you can all play along!

I think there are quite a few ways you could interpret this month’s inspiration so I thought I would share a few ideas that came to mind.

  • You could lift the page design for a fun, collage effect.
  • You could use the  messy tape as inspiration and go to town with any kind of ribbon, string or thread for a tangled look!
  • I think the tape also looks somewhat circular and could be the jumping off point for a messy circle design.
  • You could take inspiration from the theme and create a page about your favourite band or playlist.
  • Maybe you are drawn to the wooden background and could start your page there.

As you will see our team members all created completely different pages! Katie has provided a freebie to get you started but you won’t be required to use it to participate in the challenge.

Lori (lmaggs) created a page showcasing her 70’s mix playlist. I love how she used the inked twists in place of the tape! I also love the 70’s feel of this page with the colours and plastic flowers!

Lori used these products to create her page: Arctic Whites Paper Pack 04, Cassette Labels 01, Inked Twists Brushes and Stamps 02, Lake Lodge Solids Paper Pack, Layer Works 1728, Love Letters Element Pack, Pocket Cards: Notebook 01, Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat 01

Kathy (blackkathy) immediately thought of ribbons when she saw the messy tape. Doesn’t this work so well? I feel like this would also be a great way to record a birthday or opening presents on Christmas morning!

I (tracermajig) was inspired to create a page about my love of podcasts. I kept my page design fairly close to the album cover because I loved the collage look. I also loved the look of the spilled tape so I used some messy twine to create a similar effect. I was also drawn to the wooden background and found a light coloured paper to match in with my rainbow colours.
