Inspiration From The Everyday: Vintage Poster

Hey, hey Fancy Pants blog readers ... it's summer & cause to celebrate! I feel inspired by sunshine, warmth & fun times and hope you will be too, by the project I have to share today.

I love vintage print, posters and ads. I love the colors used, fonts, and overall design of yester-year, hence my need to have a folder on Pinterest filled to bursting with inspiration I can draw on. This poster caught my eve for today's "Everyday Inspiration" post.

Looking at the page design, I felt challenged by the unusual color blocking & image placement. I thought interpreting it into a scrapbook page would be great fun for us to try. Please find below a sketch to help our creative process.

As per the poster shown above, I placed my blue panels at the top of the page to become my "sky" & I divided up the bottom red panel into "red & yellow" representing "sand". Keeping a central focal point by clustering the photos in the middle just as they did, grounded the page perfectly. I found by adding 'playful' accents around the photographs, a sparkly sun & fun title, softened the very graphic page layout. In keeping with the inspiration piece the addition of white stitching along the angles added interest & texture.

The bright, summery papers & accents from the Summer Soul collection perfectly complimented these crazy photos of my little guy & his friend at the water chutes.

I encourage you to look for inspiration in the most unlikely places. One can be inspired by just about anything.

Happy Wednesday!
