Challenge #3: Use an idea previously saved!
Do you save ideas about scrapping on your phone? Make a quick sketch of a layout in a notepad? Do you pin magazine cut outs to a cork board or do this virtually on Pinterest? If you do, like me, you'll have a stack of ideas saved for later, but when is later? I often forget to go back and actually use these gems. This challenge is to use an idea you have previously saved - be it a scribble on a scrap of paper or a like on Instagram. Share the idea with us, too, so we can add it to our lists!
So, I took inspiration from a couple of places for this page. I started with my Counterfeit Kit (the one from September, 'cause I'm behind-but who's keeping track anyway ). Recently, I am most inspired by the Art And Design class that I am taking from Wilna F over at Big Picture Classes. She has shared some beautiful cutfiles and techniques , so I used one of them, and had a bit of fun with some Gesso and puffy paint, and just general mess making. I wanted to use some outside inspiration as well, so I drew inspiration from a scrapbook page that I had pinned to Pinterest:
(This layout was originally shared on the My Mind's Eye blog) I loved the flower clusters especially, but I may use it for inspiration again at another date, because I love the colors and stamping, too!
So, the page that I came up with is this:
It is a bit messier than my usual style, but it was fun to make, and I love it. The texture is just so lovely in person!
