iTunes Challenge: November

Welcome back to another iTunes challenge, friends! I hope we can inspire you to join in the fun!

I (Trace) was lost for ideas this month until I saw this album cover. I loved the peek-a-boo photo with the clean, simple design and ample white space. A fun fact about me is that even though I am a very messy and layer heavy scrapbooker, I am actually quite drawn to graphic, clean and simple designs. I’m just not very good at making them! HA! So as much as I loved this album cover, I knew it would be a challenge! But that’s why we are here, right?

Katie has provided a freebie to kick start your mojo and I hope you can play along!

Rae (bcgal00) created such an eye catching page! I love the look of the cut out photo on the patterned paper background! The simple embellishments and title ensure the emphasis stays on that sweet photo.

How stunning is Kathy’s (Blackkathy) page? I love the clever title work and the overall cozy feel of her page! The added embellishments are the perfect finishing touch!
These are the products that Kathy used: Frosted Winter Elements, Miriam Solids, Rustique Noel Elements

I just love Carol’s (oldbag165) page! Once again, this is a great design for keeping the focus on the photo but her extraction of the hummingbird takes it to another level. I also love how the diagonal design draws your eye across the photo and down to the title and journaling.

Stacia’s design is a great way to include a lot of journaling on your page! I love how she continued the diagonal design with the paper pieces in the corners. The black and white is also very striking!

I (tracermajig) discovered something with this challenge. This kind of design lends well to photos that might not be great quality. This was a photo I took some years ago on an older model phone. It was blurry and a bit pixelated but I loved the colours it captured in this sunset. Clipping it to the photo mask like this hides some of those imperfections and I got to use it for the colours that I love. I tried my hardest to stay clean and simple but I couldn’t help myself in the end!
