This was the inspiration piece I chose for the February colour inspiration challenge at SNR. Here is my LO's I created using this inspiration piece and how I interpretted the piece.I was first drawn to the inspiration piece because of the large doors with the metal rivets. I knew I would be able to replicate these with some recently acquired metal sheets and a little imagination. The combination of the black with the vintage shades in color palette #2 are just stunning and, in my opinion, added character to my finished layout. I selected the photograph in hopes of creating the illusion of looking through large open doors at the kids walking in the distance. The Dusty Attic chipboard flourish I found in my stash was the perfect item to finish the layout off because of its resemblance to the lighting above the doorway in the inspiration piece.
I created the background by tearing up a piece of vintage pp I had in my stash. I tore it into random sized pieces and inked all the edges with black soot distress ink. I then applied in in a collage type style using some Golden soft gel. Once all the pieces were applied I painted a second coat of soft gel medium over all the pp's which gave the bg a shimmery appearance.
the metal pieces above and below the pic were emboosed using a sizzix embossing folder.
I was rather delighted with the end result and feel confident that I did a good job of interpreting the inspiration piece....even if I do say so myself...LOL!
