Good Morning its time for the next BasicGrey Challenges and this fortnight it's a photo inspiration challenge,
Our challenge photo is gorgeous and we would simply like you to take Inspiration from it! It can be anything from patterns, shapes, colours even textures, let your imagination run wild and have fun interpreting the photo...
The first thing that inspired me was the scallops and the box pleats just had to have them on my project... LOL, it so reminded me of sewing with my mum, nearly had to stop myself getting the iron out to press the pleats after folding them... ROTFL! I would love to do a little tutorial for those who'd love to make some pleats too?
I really wanted to capture the fresh clean look of the scene and thought these papers worked well. The main image, inspired from the beautiful yellow flowers in the vase... is a small floral stamp I have repeated several times to fill the area, embellished with a flitter of glitter. It's a little lost in the photo but love the paneling under the window and used my nesties to created a raised frame.
The butterfly I have stamped on to BG bluebird paper and highlighted the spots with my yellow sakura gel pen and added a touch of spica and bling!!! Click images to enlarge.
