Being Inspired

Happy April everyone – Essie here sharing layouts that were inspired by the challenges set by my fab team mates for the recent March GoGoGetaway. I always find starting with a quote, sketch, mood-board etc can really help when my Mojo has gone missing and I chose Terri’s quote and Nancy’s elements to get my creativity sparked. Challenge 2 Terri QuoteI have some lovely vintage photos of my mum as a child and love this simple snap of her outside her childhood home and thought it fitted perfectly.

Terris quote

I’ve printed the photo in two different sizes, kept to the colour tones in the background paper and used mixed Alphas for the title.

 In contrast I’ve created a bold, bright page using Shimelle’s head in the clouds for Nancy’s elements challenge.

Challenge 5 Nancy's ElementsI’ve chosen to use  – More than one photo, Stitching, three patterned papers, An arrow and Washi Tape.

Nancy's elements

I drew a tea cup shape and used strips of Washie tape and paper across it before stitching around the edge.

 I hope those of you like me who weren’t at the event can still find inspiration from the fab themes the team have chosen and we’d love to see them up on the Facebook page. Don’t forget we also had a new challenge up yesterday with great prizes.  Happy Scrapping xx
