Hi all, it's Maureen. Today I want to talk about inspiration. Where do you all find it...Pinterest, home decor, stationary, nature? Inspiration is all around us! I am constantly taking pictures throughout the day of things that spark an idea for a card. This card design for instance was inspired by a dress I saw recently in a department store.
The dress was covered with black and white stripes from top to bottom with pink flowers lining the edge. Translating that onto a CAS card though - I quickly found that it was a bit too busy for my liking. So, I simplified the design by leaving the stripes in the upper third of the card base. I usually work in the bottom third, so this was a great way for me to change things up. It's always a good idea to change it up once in a while.
My color combination was inspired by a wall hanging that was in a movie I watched the other night. It was set in the 70's and I just loved the funky color combination. The You Equal Kind flowers are fun and funky, just perfect for the design.
Inspiration is all around us. Keep your eyes open, snap pictures of things that inspire you, and you'll never be lacking for mojo when you head to your work space again!
