Thursday Inspiration - Challenge 1

(Keep Scrolling Past This Post to Enter Your Project for Challenge 1)

Wow, what did you think of all that fabulous inspiration yesterday?

 Are you ready for more?

Today we have Catherine, Christy S., Dawn, and Regan. They have all created some beautiful projects based on the inspriation photo.


Catherine used the pop of red in the flowers on the scarf and transferred that idea onto the page by placing the red flower on top of the cream colored lace ribbon that ran horizontally along the top of the page. To also bring out that beautiful cream color she layered a flower on top of the red one with a pearl accent in the center. She also brought in a few black accents with the strip of black velvet and black shimmer accent, as well as the word love.


Christy used the colors of Challenge #1-Photo Inspiration as her "launching pad" this week. She used a simple background and popped it with a bold red from Studio Calico's new line-Documentary. Bringing in some of the geometric patterns from the photo as well she finished off her title using layered circles.


Lucky for Dawn, that her now baby brother-in-law graduated this month- and his school colors are red, white and bling (silver). She chose to make him a congratulatory card based off of his school colors; and our photo.


Regan used this weeks challenge to create a 12X12 layout. She used the color combination and the art of crochet as her inspiration from the photo. She hand crocheted each of the red flowers and placed them around the photo. By adding some Prima bling and roses around the crocheted flowers she allows the viewers eye to be drawn to the photo. For more photos and details, please visit her blog.

Great projects ladies! I love to see how everyone is inspired in all different directions! It's amazing to see how we can get so many different projects out of looking at a single photo!
