Ad Inspiration

>> Thursday, July 8, 2010

Good morning everyone! So who else is checking back several times a day to check out the sneaks for the new lines? I'm sure I'm not the only one! The little clues so far are amazing! Congrats to the winners of the new lines...those riddles had me completely stumped!

I thought for today it would be fun to share a layout that was inspired completely by a J.Crew ad! The things I liked most about this ad were the grouping of the 6 photos and the cute little arrow drawing your attention to them.

I created this 12x12 sketch based on the ad. The photos I used were sized to 2.5 x 4 with a white border.

Which resulted in this layout highlighting the many sides of my son! I don't use ad's for inspiration very often. I think I'll have to try it more often. How about you?
