You can use whatever element you want as your inspiration: color, content, etc. There will be a prize awarded for one random participant in this week's challenge - an Imaginisce goodie bag! Be sure to visit the 2RB blog for more information and to see the DT's samples.
Having recently been to the beach, when I looked at this photo I was inspired by the sand and water. Mostly because I knew I had some photos with exactly those things in them. I decided to do a layout with a few of my photos.
The background is a piece of Crate Paper DP. Most of the DP strips are from EK Success' A Day at the Beach collection, and the pink strip with flowers is from Flair Designs. The chipboard stickers are also EK Success.
I distressed the photo edges with MM distressing tools - roughed up the edges and sanded them. The blue lines were doodled in with a Stardust pen. The sentiment at the upper left corner of the photo is from 2RB's June Journaling Spot stamp set.
