February Crop - 9 AM Challenge "Love Me Some Music"

Post by Katie on Wed Feb 09, 2011 4:55 pm

I love music and have so many favorite artists. I bet you do to!
For this challenge, use the album or CD cover of a band/artist you as graphic inspiration for a project (layout, mini, etc).

My inspiration came from "Best of the Corrs." CD cover. I love this Irish group of musicians!


I found lots of graphic inspiration from the CD cover for my layout:


~ I started with 12x12 kraft paper & crackle paint to create the background of the layout to mimic background design of the album cover.
~ I used the album's photo design as inspiration for photo design on my layout, including the white matting.
~ I used the simple title and title lettering as inspiration for my title and title work.

While I found lots of different stuff on this cover to use for graphic inspiration, the challenge is for you to find at least one thing that appeals to you & use it for graphic inspiration...color, design, photo placement, titlework, etc.

Just for fun, please share with us the cover you chose, too.

I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

Great challenge and fabulous layout!

I use to have some stilts when I was younger. I wonder if I have any pictures of that? I hate that all my childhood pictures are in Dallas with my mom.

I got this one done but no light to photo it. It will be Sat before I am home in the day light. This was fun!
