What strikes you first about this ad? The design? The colors? The shapes? I think I was first struck by the the grouping of circles and the white space in the design. Then I thought about the colors in Home Sweet Home and thought they would be a perfect match for the colors in the ad.
Once I decided on which collection to use I started to work on the design of my layout. I decided to take the ad and turn it into a sketch.
As you can see, I kept the sketch 8.5x11. I turned the tomato sauce can into the photo. I kept the diagonal design of circles. The ad copy I turned into some journaling lines. The only thing missing was a place for the title, so I added it towards the top in the middle.
Finally it was time to translate all my choices into an actual layout:
In the actual layout, I decided to use a journaling card with "On this day...." as the title so I moved the journaling up to the top. I layered punched patterned paper circles, smaller punched scalloped circles and these circular brads:
So there you have it...from an ad to a sketch to a layout. If you use either the ad or my sketch for inspiration, I'd love to see!
