PostSubject: POSTED | September Blog Challenge   Wed Sep 10, 2014 10:46 pm

It is September 15th, and here on the Pink Reptile Blog, that means it is challenge time again!  But before we dive into the new stuff, let’s pick a winner and give you a chance to see what everyone did for their pages last month. It was fun to see how everyone spent their season (summer or winter) through their detailed photo. Check them all out {link here}.

*WINNER AUGUST

I let Mr. Random choose the winner of the August challenge and he picked a mighty fine winner indeed:

Here's (insert name)'s beautiful page:

*ART INSPIRATION CHALLENGE

Welcome to the September Blog Challenge! For this month's challenge we are using a piece of artwork that was created by Mathilde Aubier, for a Rock Festival, as an inspiration piece for our page.

To participate, you simply need to create a page, using at least 75% Pink Reptile Products, that is inspired in some way by this piece of art. There are so many aspects to this collage that could inspire a scrapbook page. I was really drawn to the soft, calming color palette and the textures, plus I think it's really cool that there is what sort of looks like a journaling spot on the art piece. The fact that the page is basically divided into four large triangles could be the starting point for your layout or perhaps you wish to incorporate those over-sized triangles into just a part of your composition. The textures are gorgeous, I could see a page created based on wrinkled patterned papers, wood grain patterns, or fabric textured card stock. The extracted vintage photograph is really cool too and would be the perfect starting point for an art journaling layout. Maybe it is the geometric shapes that you are drawn to ... it would even be fun to create a page with stamped triangles or big wonky dots.

To assist you in creating your page, I've created a free mini kit, with a few key pieces inspired by the collage. Feel free to just pull out the pieces you need. There is a triangle, quadrant template (in PSD/Tiff format) that you can use to easily divide up your background papers. Also included in the mini kit is a wonky dot overlay that you could recolor or clip papers to. There are stamped triangles to play with, a lined journaling spot, and a diagonal title block. I can't wait to see how this art collage inspires your page!

Kari created this beauty with a gorgeous pinup inspired photo of a close friend. Love that she used the collage's vintage lady as inspiration. She also incorporated the big triangles, wonky dots, lined journaling, the diagonal title and added lots of gorgeous textured papers on her page! She fully embraced loads of inspiration from the art piece onto her amazing page!

Anja created this absolutely dreamy page with beautiful vintage graphics, over-sized wonky circles, and textures galore ... from the wood grain and delicate floral patterns to the solid highly textured papers. Love!

Geraldine put together this stunning layout using the wonky spots with a soft opacity and two paper tones in the background, as the foundation for her page. She added a black silhouette and placed her title on a diagonal just like in the art piece.

Em created this gorgeous page with triangles as her source of inspiration. Not only did she use them in the background, but added fun dimensional triangles with papers and perfect shadows! She also played with lined journalers and scattered tiny circles across her page. So lovely!

Ferdy made magic on her page with her adorable photo ... I really feel the vintage "sock hop" vibe going on with the headband and red lipstick! She also used the big triangles with highly textured papers. She scattered her page with lots of wonky dots and layers of circles (the fun records!) in the center. Such a playful layout!

And surprise! Look who scrapped a special page just for this challenge ...

Our very own Mirjam made this amazing beauty to share with us! She used tons of textured papers and big wonky circles. She also clustered .... layers of circles, an extracted black & white image, and a diagonal title together to create the focus for her super fun page! I am so in love with this page! (also I really need to get my hands on her Heimili Alpha she created for the September BYOC!)

As you can see there are just so many ways to be inspired by this art collage. I can't wait to see what you all do for this challenge.
