I love finding inspiration on Pinterest! Whenever I feel a bit uninspired I scroll through and check out all the fun mixed media, art and scrapping projects. After awhile an idea usually comes to me. Sometimes you need to take a look more than once to see how something could inspired a scrapbook page but there's usually always some element that can be incorporated. I see it as experimentation where you can't really go wrong.
For my page I used a photo of what seems to be a collage with a bright mix of all different kinds of fun things, colors and shapes. You can see the original inspiration image by Emily Richard here.*
I pulled out my stash and picked some papers that didn't really go together but created a strong eclectic mix.
I cut scraps of the papers into different sized squares and glued them in a quilt fashion over my page.
I used black gouache as the paint to create the brush stroked lettering. I need lots more practice with this technique but I went ahead with it no matter the outcome.
The effect was close to my Pinterest photo and added a little boldness to my page. I kept things pretty simple and just added my photo inside a little frame.
Using Pinterest as inspiration is always fun, and you never know what the outcome might be. This was really a fun and simple page to create and allowed me to step out of the box a little bit.
Supplies: Various Studio Calico kits, white cardstock, black gouache, liner paint brush, scrap papers, Crate Paper frame
