I created this 12X12 layout based on the photo inspirational challenge at Trail Makers Challenge Blog. This challenge is named as "What is your inspiration?"
I was inspired in the range of brown colors from both photos at Trail Makers challenge blog. Somehow these photos inspired me to dig in my stash of vintage photos.
I chose several patterned papers and supplies from different manufacturers: Crate Paper - Neighborhood; Fancy Pants - It's the Little Things; Bo Bunny - Time Piece; Pink Paislee - Sweetness - Canvas Borders; Parisian Anthology - Corrugated Elements; Jenni Bowlin - Pearl buttons; Alphabet Stickers: Fancy Pants; ribbon: from a past The Paper Trail kit; journaling die cut: from a past The Paper Trail kit.
I love the vintage feel with the chic style from all these collections, therefore I was inspired to scrap a photo of myself dressed in my baptism dress. I used sketch #173 from Creative Scrappers.
To create my 12X12 layout first, I cut a non symmetrical square frame approximately 9" X 9" from the Crate Paper patterned paper. Then, I distressed all the paper borders with my MM distresser. Then I attached the grid patterned paper from Crate Paper with pop dots to the Fancy Pants patterned paper. Next I distressed and attached three paper strips at the left side. I placed two photos, chipboard elements, flowers and the rest of the embellishments.
So, which supplies inspire you to create with the photos from the challenge? Do you have photos with similar colors and/or style feel? I will love to read your ideas!
Have a wonderful day!
