Crate Paper: Composition

Pinterest is bursting with great ideas for composition. The elements of almost any picture can be broken down, studied and put towards new creative ideas!

This picture, of concrete painted candle holders grabbed my attention almost immediately. There are so many fun, trendy elements going on, I was inspired and ready to create!


First up, I wanted to recreate the stacked feel to the picture. To do this I took a journaling card from Notes & Things and found three colorful embellishments and adhered them to the card from largest to smallest, just like the pictured.


Since the background of my inspiration was mostly white, I chose a larger journaling card that matched this idea to be the background of my card. I love the playful colors popping out in the picture so I have a few colorful surprises above and below the smaller journaling card.


The sentiment was the finished the card and adds a natural element too! 


I had to make one more card because the angled painting in the inspiration picture is SO amazing! I mimicked the angles as best I could, again using papers from Notes & Things.


The rest of the card is playful and layered but allows the angled paper to make a bold statement at the bottom of the card.

What kind of inspiration in composition can you find? Happy creating!
