Inspired by Infographics

I never would have thought to use Infographics to inspire a scrapbook page.To be honest, prior to my assignment for Get It Scrapped, I never paid much attention to the design behind one. What I found is that, Infographics can be both page design and an idea for a journaling prompt.

In order to complete my assignment, I scoured the web for various images. I settled on this one. The speech bubbles remind me of the things my son likes to say right now. It's something I have been meaning to document for awhile. He tends to acquire regular words and phrases that trend in his vocabulary for awhile before he finds something new.

I decided that I liked the overall design of the infographic and I chose to mimic it with scrap pieces of cardstock. I even drew and cut out a building.I am not great at drawing so I simplified the silhouettes of the people in the window. 

The Things You Say by Christy Strickler | Supplies: Cardstock: Colorbok; Alphas: 7 Gypsies,My Little Shoebox, Sassafrass; Glitter Glue: Ranger; Other: cardstock

Now I have a collection of infographics to use for scrapbook layouts.I have more ideas than I have time. I'd love to use an infographic to track my son's favorite TV shows, for example. Perhaps there will be another layout like this one in the near future.
