Once again I’ve asked our designers to be inspired by YOU, those that upload projects to ourBasicGrey flickr pool. I selected this layout from Martine Labelle and then asked two of our designers to use it as inspiration for their next layout.
Envole Toi | Marinette Lesne
BasicGrey design team member Marinette Lesne is the first to use Martine’s layout as inspiration to create her own project. She says, “First of all, just wanted to say that I really like the great design of this layout: the dark brown background paper mixed with those colors is gorgeous and add so much contrast to the layout. I decided to use several old BG collections that I really love and that I kept in my secret stash. I was inspired by this mix of colors and so I also used a dark brown background to contrast with colorful papers. Flowers are replaced by butterflies and I also added a handwritten journaling under the picture.”
So Lucky | Kelly Goree
BasicGrey designer Kelly Goree also used Martine’s layout as the starting point for her layout. Kelly explains, “I followed the flickr image pretty closely as I liked the overall layout and the the big blocks of color. I played around the some punches just like the original artist but rather than doing a variety of border punches, I used my heart punch to make a shamrock that reflected my theme. I kept a photo block just like the original artist but did three vertical photos rather than combining horizontal and vertical.”
I love how a single layout uploaded to our flickr poor inspired two completely different layouts!
