The first time I opened up the magazine I wondered aloud, "What in the world is this?". I mean why would my mom (bless her sweet heart) send me a subscription to Traditional Home magazine?!? I mean, c'mon, I'm a mostly single (hubby is almost always deployed) mom of five younguns. While I would loove for our home to look like something out of a magazine, but... HA!!! There's just no way. But, as I continued flipping the pages, I slowly began to understand. Mom didn't get it for me as a subtle nudge to start redecorating, it's a great source of scrappy inspiration. The pages are filled with beautifully decorated homes with furnishings to inspire endless embellies. The ads are spectacularly designed. I could lift each one of them. But, I mostly love the color combos it provides me. My Color Challenge is for you to take a gander at this ad from Waverly and make a scrappy layout using the color scheme as inspiration. K?
For this 2-page layout, I used the foreground in the Waverly ad as inspiration for my kraft cardtock base. And the rest of the bright springy, retro-flavored colors of the houses inspired the rest. What do you see? What inspiration can you gather from this fabulous ad? I know I'm going to re-visit this add at a later date to lift the layout design, as well. Would love to see you use this as a color inspo for your next page. Please link us up in the gallery at Simply Obsessed!
