Ugly sweaters? Bethany even set up a Pinterest board (here) to give us extra inspiration incase the memories of our own ugly secrets weren't enough!!
Off to the Pinterest board I went to see what monstrosities there were - oh, and there were quite a few!
I can't say that any sweater in particular is the main inspiration but I got a general feeling of lots of broad, eye watering chevrons across the front with large snowmen or suchlike in the middle. Bright colours. Lots of swirly bits. Even bits hanging off the edges. All in all, brash and bold.
And so my layout ended up with elements of brash and bold.
|Several of those ugly sweaters had square elements on the front - maybe four boxes with designs inside - so a square photo seemed appropriate. The twine twirly bits reminded me of the tassels and dangles hanging off the bottom of quite a few|
|I've got lots of these Heidi Swapp transparency elements and while I still love them, they can be hard to use. I decided to scatter some - much like many of those ugly sweaters have scattered snowflakes!|
|Bold, bright chevrons with a large design in the middle? Check. Swirly bits and pieces? Check. Yes, the ugly sweater elements are there!|
