View Full Version : February Challenge #5 - Artist Inspiration

All members that participate, can everyone PLEASE ensure that you read all the rules for this challenge so that you can claim your challenge points. Thank you!

Happy February to all. I am happy to host the O's Artist Inspiration Challenge. It gives me a chance to think outside the box. Sometimes you have to because that box gets pretty dark, right?

Remember, you may create any style of layout you wish, with or without photos. Create any size page you wish. This is for everyone! There are no restrictions, have fun and see where the inspiration takes you.

Just create a layout based on what you like in the picture- colors, style, setting or a feeling. An example is the photo of the cat has tags to describe it and they used colors and geometrical. You could do a geometrical layout.


Here is my layout based on the lighthouse which I see as serene...like the beach

I used Anna Aspens Bespoken and Natalie Design Frames

- Create a layout based on what you see in the example art I have provided
- Please use 80% Oscraps products that are currently in the store.
- Non-Oscraps products or retired O designer products can be used whether the designer is selling elsewhere or not.
- You need to credit all the products used on your layout.
- Your page must be posted in the Challenge 5 (https://ozone.oscraps.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1350) gallery by midnight PST February 29, 2020 and linked back to this thread. HOW TO LINK LAYOUT TO CHALLENGE THREAD. (https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32641)

By posting this challenge, I wonder if my page responds to what is asked, I have a doubt!
I was thinking of posting a page on an artistic inspiration, and here it would be myself since for some time I have been trying to draw
But I think we had to base ourselves on the examples imposed! ? So in this case let's say that I am basing myself on the image at the bottom right ... the door that opens onto new possibilities, new aspirations? ..
If my page does not correspond to the challenge, feel free to say it and I would do another one, with pleasure !

The beauty of this challenge is to interpret a photo as YOU see it. your layout is absolutely perfect and I understand what you were thinking. Great idea!

My inspiration is the photo of the gated entrance on the lower right.
It put me in mind of opportunities that await as you step through into the future.

I was inspired by the fish that reminded me of these magnificent mosaics of Roman civilization that I could see in Rome in Pompeii, at the Bardo Museum in Tunis etc

I was insprired by the cat and wanted to alter an animal.

Thanks for the challenge and it truly was a challenge for me. I was inspired by the fish, their curve and colour. I also liked the movement and tried to get that feeling of fish swimming.

Well Sharon, I took one look at this challenge and thought no way can I do this. Five mins later I came back to have another look because hey, it's a challenge. The mix of styles and colours reminded me of Anna's Amaranthine palette and next thing I had a layout. Of course the cat inspired the dog. Many thanks for the inspiration.

I really wanted to try something like the colorful cat in the artist inspiration choices, but in the end decided to use one of my photos of lovely Glastonbury instead. I enjoyed the challenge a lot. Here's my finished page:

While this sure isn't the Kremlin, that photo did remind me of this courthouse.

My inspiration came from the lighthouse and the multicolours in the cat.
Thank you for this great challenge.
Supplies are in the gallery

I was inspired by the lighthouse. I love them pictures of lighthouses, and they seem homey to me, in contrast to the wildness of the sea. Walpole, New Hampshire is also home to me, and the church on the common rises above the scene as the lighthouse does.
