Good Morning!

It is so much fun to be challenged by different ideas when trying to create for a project.  Today, my assignment topic is Pinteresting.  We are asked to find something on Pinterest that inspires us.  Thinking outside the box and NOT using sketches, color mood boards or other layouts as inspiration.  We try and find something out of the ordinary to get the creative juices flowing.  I was so excited and inspired when I found my inspiration piece.  Let’s take a look.

The colors in the shape of a pie chart on the dark background scream “use me as inspiration”, don’t you think?

Instead of an exact pie chart, I chose to use a Brick Circle Background cut file from JustNick Studios.

Softening my background a bit, I layered white cardstock on top of the floral black paper called Fancy Floral.

You can see that I used different colors and patterns behind my cut file and layered coordinating ephemera, puffy stickers, flair and enamels on top.

It is fun to find inspiration from anywhere.  Advertisements in magazines are another favorite place to find inspiration.
