April 2017 Challenge

Did anyone watch the Academy Awards? I didn’t but hearing all the news stories about it did lead me to an idea for a challenge this month…movie posters. I challenged myself to make a layout that was inspired by a movie poster. First I found a site that sells posters and then I searched for one that I thought would make a good layout. Seeing as though we are already experiencing “April Showers” here in the Midwest, the “Singing in the Rain” poster caught my eye and I had just the photos to work with it.

Here is my inspiration poster:

Singing in the Rain
















And here’s my layout inspired by the poster:

Dancing in the Rain



So here is the challenge – make a layout inspired by a movie poster. Your inspiration could be the color scheme, the genre, or the overall design. You can find lots of move poster sites on line. Here is where I found mine at Movie Posters at AllPosters. They have posters listed by genre, title, actor or actress, and director. Upload your layout into the Challenge Gallery and post a link to it in the Challenge thread by April 30th. You can find directions for uploading layouts to the gallery here and how to link your layout to the thread here. It would be great if you could show us the poster that inspired your layout in your post, but if you can’t, please tell us what movie poster you used.

And now for the prizes (all prize winners chosen randomly):

  • (1) $30.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice
  • (1) $20.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice
  • (1) $10.00 discount coupon towards a class of your choice

You can only win one prize in the challenge each month.

I hope you’ll join the challenge and good luck!
