All Things Media



This week at DCMs You are being Dared 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!

At the very last minute, I came up with an idea inspired by an old photo on the 'Net advertising perfume - I caught a few more recent perfume images as you can see - have we really changed so much? Except maybe for the size of the bottles?? The SCENTiment is the same!! LoL!

Susan,
This card is absolutely wonderful and so very creative! I love the creativity DCM inspires. I've been lurking on their site and plan to get more involved but am somewhat intimidated. One day I will get brave and take the plunge. Keep up the great work!

Not too late, Susan!

Great card, love the colours. I love perfume bottles too, I used to have quite a few, but I had a clear out. Wish I'd kept them now, though - isn't that always the way?
