I was inspired by the gorgeous layout of her card. I also was inspired by another challenge for my color scheme...Curtain Call Color Challenge- Act 55. One of the things that I love about that challenge blog is that they use items from their environment for inspiration, esp. decor items. LOVE!
Some Great Color Challenge Sites:
The layout below was done from a sketch challenge.
I have the sketch printed out, but I have NO IDEA where it came from *eek*! So, if you recognize this layout design, hook me up with a link and I am so sorry to whomever did this sketch. (hint: I think that I printed it up 4-6 weeks ago.....)
I love using sketches as inspiration. For me the funnest part of creating is picking out my product. This way I can concentrate on that aspect of it and leave the layout design to the inspiration sketch.
Some great Sketch Inspiration Sites:
*Pencil Lines (scrapbook)
*Mojo Monday (card)
*Get Sketchy (card)
*Card Patterns (card)
*Inspired Blueprints (both)
Finally, we come to my favorite type of inspiration.... although this is a little more vague than the others. This type of inspiration comes simply from images. A lot of the time those images are from collages of photos, weddings, home decor, or even fashion. For these types of inspiration, I simply try to recreate the original feel of the images that inspired me.
For instance the card below was inspired by this wedding from the Style Me Pretty website. I loved the happy, whimsical feel of the color scheme and styling and tried to re-create that with my card using the same colors and similar patterns.
