(extra points if you know the song I am referencing!)
what happens now is that I explain my card really quickly cos I have some work to do and a trip to the orthodontist for number 1 son this morning
So the Daring Cardmakers dare this week is...
to make a card that is inspired by 'All Things Media'. The dare has been set by our Gillian:
It's around us no matter which way we turn, and all designed to get our attention. Ads designed by graphic designers who know all the tricks & techniques to draw our eyes to the product in question. You only have to glance at a Newspaper quickly to read headings with 'Shock' titles & 'Clever' puns all designed to make you want to read what the article is all about!
Maybe you have been inspired by an Ad in a magazine, the colours or design that has been used. Or incorporate actual magazines & newspapers onto your card; maybe chop up letters (ransom note style) to create the sentiment
So grab that latest edition of your favourite Mag, or pick up your newspaper, because there is so much inspiration there, Just waiting for you to discover!
The picture is from a Diana comic from 1969. At the Crafts by Carolyn meet in Birmingham last May, Puss was selling lovely bags of bits - including magazines and paper. I have just rediscovered my treasure trove and these pictures! I can do a few more like this. The papers are Junkitz flowerful which I love but have never used. Must put them on a layout next!
As usual I think the team have come up with lots of different and fabby interpretations fo the dare - and I know that everyone who joins in will too. So go on - I dare ya!
