Finding Inspiration

>> Thursday, August 18, 2011

Like many of you, I am constantly on the look out for inspiration. Usually I look outside of the scrapbooking world of creativity. But lately, I have been finding all sorts of inspiration through fellow scrapbook designers.

During a webinar interview last month, two of the designers used butterflies on their pages. I haven't used butterflies in a long time. I felt compelled to use my new punches & get creating. One of the designers stated using one tool or shape on a page is a good way to keep creating simple & less overwhelming. As I am always using more than one punch or shape on a page, usually, I loved the idea of keeping it simple.

Here is a simple card I created, 'Seize the Day', using layers of butterflies showcasing the Memorandum Collection. You can never go wrong using text background on any project & adding a splash of bright colors.


To continue with my keeping it simple plan, I created this layout, 'Sandy Legs', using the same butterfly.


Instead of layering the shapes in different colors, I added pop dots to some of the butterflies & created a tone-on-tone look on my page with the embellishments.
