Design Team Mixup, Take Two

>> Monday, November 30, 2009

As promised, here are a few more pages from our talented design team members, Brenda Hurd and Lori Gentile. Their lifts of each other prove not only that imitation really is a form of flattery, but also show that what begins as a lift can be uniquely tailored to reflect one's own style.

"Beautiful Soul"
by Lori Gentile
(Lift of Brenda Hurd)
"What I love most about Brenda's work is her sense of balance," Lori claims, pointing out Brenda's unique way of drawing attention to her focal point photo and her "knack for placing those finishing details that make it all tie together." Lori selected Brenda's "Family" canvas as inspiration for her own layout, incorporating similar elements such as sewn hearts and buttons. Lori changed the orientation of her papers and photo, and added her own unique (and colorful!) touches to the layout as well.

"A Flower for You"
by Brenda Hurd
(Lift of Lori Gentile)

When Brenda saw Lori's "You Crack Me Up" layout in the Lily Bee Ning gallery, she was immediately drawn to Lori's design. "I loved the squares," Brenda recalls, noting that Lori's idea of combining a variety of patterned squares is not only a great way to "showcase that paper," but is also a brilliant way of adding "smaller pictures without overwhelming the layout." Brenda adopted a similar approach when putting together her layout, incorporating a variety of gently distressed patterned rectangles that reinforce the floral theme of the page.

We'll BEE back soon with more pages and projects for you to enjoy!

Great LOs. I really like how the buttons have been used on the dotted paper in the first LO & the little photos and paper rectangles in the second :)
