3.21 Mojo Monday - Get Inspired - Architecture

Post by Mara on Mon Mar 21, 2011 9:28 am

Architecture is all around us. For March's Get Inspired challenge, I'd like us to take a deeper look at the ways in which we can incorporate architectural ideas into our projects.

- Look at photos of great architecture. Use similar design elements in your project.
- There are lots of architecturally inspired products out there, chipboard windows, house mini albums, blueprint paper
- Scrap about your dream design house

Here are a couple of great architecture pictures to get you started!

Handpainted skyline for K's Layout


The 4th picture's color inspired Jen!

Picture 1332-1 by jenifer evans, on Flickr

Mara's Layout inspired by mid century architecture


The grass, roof ans chimney were all made out of washi tape

I love when I see scrappers use patterned paper strips on their layouts. I combined that idea with this photo, where I love how each building is a different color, different size, to inspire the paper strips on my layout.

Made a card for an older retiree friend who has moved into a new apartment in a new town, downsizing now that she's the only one at home (husband recently passed). It reads, "(outside) The city is different, (inside) the address is new, but don't worry friend I won't forget you!"
