November's Ad and some CT inspiration!

Here is our inspirational ad for November....a gorgeous Hermes advert. I just fell in love with the elephant and those colours :) And our technique challenge for the month is 'masking'.

So email us your LO inspired by the advert and using the technique of masking by 25th November to be in the running to win a gorgeous Wicked Princess prize!

Now, for some more inspiration, or CT's take on the advert!

Lisa has borrowed the stunning orange/pink colour combo, and created a flower using masking...gorgeous work Lisa!

Lauren has created a beautiful LO about her hubby " I was inspired by the Indian theme of the ad so have used Basic Grey Marakesh. I immediately thought of the Pussycat Dolls song 'JaiHo' so have used the lyrics as my title'

Thanks Lauren..Love it!

Gina has used the gorgeous colours and patterns in the advert to create this gorgeous (and delicious looking) LO...just wonderful!

Kirsty was completely mesmerised by the elephants in the advert and found a pic of her brother and sis in law on their recent trip to Thailand to create this relaxed, free flowing LO

Can't wait to see those entries coming in again this month girls!!! Hope we have managed to give your creativity a little nudge in the right direction!

October's Advert and some CT Inspiration!

Lisa has borrowed the concept of the grid and multiple photos and been inspired by the gorgeous greens and neutrals in the advert to create this action packed LO! Gorgeous!

Gina has again been inspired by the gorgeous colours in the ad, and used some favourite pics out of some home decorator mags to create this amazing LO. Love the masking and the flourish Gina!!

Kirsty Has used the idea of muliple photos in a grid, simple lines and the type written font to create this LO of her crazy kids enjoying ice cream in the middle of winter!

Don't forget to have your LO's emailed to us (email addy in the side bar) by October 25th with a little sentence (or two) about how the advert inspired you!

Two fabulous Entries:)

We have two fabulous entries this month so far!
This fabulously romantic LO is by A Lim.
"The burst of flowers and leaves, all pink and green 'inspired' the 'burst' paper used and the pretty flowers and foliage" And from Lee we have this gorgeous page " My inspiration came from my tea set that my late nana left, in the past it has been away in a cupboard but I am sure she would have wanted me to enjoy it like she did so lately I have been bringing it out for tea parties with girlfriends and enjoying it..."

Thanks ladies for these two gorgeous pieces! Can't wait to see if a few more inspirational pieces roll into the inbox over the next few is the ad going to inspire you???

Only One week left to get those entries in!

I cannot believe how quickly our first month on What's Ad About had gone! I am loving seeing the gorgeous entries that have come in so far, and am hoping to see a few more! Hope you all have popped the challenge on your 'to do' list!

Gina has sent through a few hints and tips for adding journalling to your LOs

This first idea I am just ITCHING to try! Gina traced around a coffee cup in pencil, journalled in the shape and then erased the how this looks Gina! Writing lists is a great, quick and effective way of adding journalling to your pages...
I love the way that journalling strips look on a page. I reeeeeeally like how doing your journalling like this takes the focus away from your handwriting! (although if my handwriting was as lovely as Gina's I wouldn't have to worry!!)

Here Gina has doubled the life of a funky journalling spot by just cutting it in half! Two uses out of the one product!

Here Gina created her own unique journalling spot by stamping with StazOn ink and using watercolour paints to add a subtle, but fabulous colour!

Thanks for those ideas Gina!!! Hopefully you all are inspired to go create and journal!
Don't forget to add your entry by leaving a comment in the comments section of this post with a link to your entry by August 25th :)
