Mini Challenge #1 Ad Inspiration!

If you are anything like me, you find inspiration everywhere! The first challenge this month at Counterfeit Kit Challenge was too much fun!! The challenge was to get inspiration from an advertisement, and use it on a layout or project. I looked through several magazines before I found this ad in the February, 2011 edition of Martha Stewart Living. I loved the cluster of words in this Special K ad, which is also known as a "word cloud".

There are websites available online (like this one) which allow you to enter words and make your own word cloud. I decided on this page to take it a step further, and use rub-ons for my word cloud. This is an awesome way to use up all of those rub-ons you have laying around collecting dust. Although the rub-ons were not included in my original kit, I thought using old product was perfect for the spirit of the challenge.

For this layout, I used a photo of my two oldest kids, and the flip sides of two of my kit papers. I used acrylic paint to cover my little handmade chipboard frame.

Cute ad, and equally great layout. It's fun to find a little inspiration and just go with it, isn't it.

I love playing with Wordle and have discovered Tagxedo is even more fun - check it out here and here on my blog!
Love the idea of using rub-ons up like that - very good idea as I keep forgetting to use them at all!
