Happy inspiration day everyone! I’m still on an artsy high after a day long class with the fabulous Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, but since I left my paints behind at the store after me (oops!) I had to go with a digital layout for this week. My inspiration for this challenge comes from a magazine advert ripped from a travel magazine.

Kinda makes you want to go traveling, doesn’t it? I liked how one part of the image was highlighted with the green frame and used that as the main feature in my layout. I think I’m hooked on this digi technique of fading my photo into the background (using layer masks and gradients) – let me know if you’d like more detail on that.

Supplies from Designer Digitals:
Stay Here paper, Edge Overlays No. 2 and Colored Photo Frames No. 1 by Katie Pertiet, Studio DD Ready Made Cicrcles All Good and Ali Edwards’ Hello Joy wordart brushes.

My layouts have been getting simpler and simpler of late but I’m ok with that. Sometimes I think it’s good to simplify. Do you go through phases when your work in simpler or is it always getting more complex? Inquiring minds want to know!
