Inspiration via Pinterest

Today I’m happy to share my June technique post for GCD Studios which highlights the use of inspiration found on the internet to spark your creative energy. I recently have become a big fan of Pinterest. Soon after I joined, I found this fun and totally hip image in a home decor pin.

I originally pinned this image because I thought it was such an innovative take on a gallery wall.  Later, I thought this design would be fun to interpret into a scrapbook page. Here’s what I came up with.

Close up you can see that I decided to just rub ink on the chipboard pieces, so that they would be black but still show up on the black cardstock.  I added some other great chipboard and brad embellishments, also from the Soul Food line for some color and added interest.
I also had a pin for this illustration on my board.
I thought using this as a title was a perfect play on words for the story I was telling.  The story starts with the photograph of our daughter looking great in her new glasses, so obviously, she is seeing more clearly now. The heartfelt journaling goes on to remind her that her true beauty comes from the inside, not what people can’t see at first glance.
I hope this encourages you to poke around Pinterest, if you haven’t already, to find and collect, beautiful, inspiring things that might give you that creative boost you need next time you sit down to scrapbook. If you’d like to see my other pins or follow me you can do so here.  Happy Pinning!
