Here’s a great Scrapbook Idea
We all know that scraplifting is a great way to kick start a flagging inspiration.
Trying to find something new for your scrapbook layouts can often be a challenge.
Well I suggest you look no further than your nearest magazine when your inspiration has gone on holiday.
Sit down in a comfortable chair with the beverage of your choice (some chocolate always helps the creative process I find, but this is optional). And start flicking through your favourite magazines.
Half close your eyes so you can’t see the pages too clearly. You don’t want to actually read the articles this time. You just want the pages to make an impression on you. So you can find one that can be translated into a scrapbook layout.
And usually the best page layouts for this will be the full page advertisements!
Don’t forget, these folk make their living by designing page layouts. So it’s reasonable to expect that they know a thing of two about it.
I found this ad for Campbell’s Soup in a women’s magazine a couple of days ago. It was just screaming at me to scraplift it and turn it into a scrapbook layout.
So I did, and this layout of my daughter and her cousins is the result.
So now I guess I’ll always think of Campbell’s Soup as ‘the family soup’
If you haven’t tried kick starting your mojo with advertising inspiration I recommend you give it a try. It will often inspire you to try styles and designs that you otherwise might not have. And it can give you a whole new perspective when you’re designing your scrapbook layouts.
And if you have tried scraplifting from magazines tell us what you did, and maybe share a link so we can go and see and help to boost our own inspiration.
