Hello Peas!
This week, I am challenging you to draw inspiration from an outside source. It can be a magazine, an internet site, a postcard…any piece you find inspiring!

I have an old design magazine called How Design. It's in a stack of magazines I occasionally turn to for inspiration. While flipping through them last week, I spied this page. I was drawn to the elements around the outside of the page and the busyness of the interior of the page.


Using this magazine page as inspiration, I added a patterned paper border around all 4 sides of my layout. The inside of the page was stamped and spritzed with ink before I attached my photos.
Being ‘inspired’ by something doesn't mean you have to copy the entire thing. You are allowed to take aspects that you like and use them, leaving out the details that aren't for you.

How I created my page:
1. Starting with a piece of white cardstock, stamp polka dots using acrylic paint. Use spray ink [] and spritz in a few spots.
2. Create a border along all 4 sides by collecting a palette of patterned papers. Cut rectangles of various sizes. Ink the edges of the rectangles to better define them. Adhere to edges of page.
3. Using Erica's Wonky Mask [], print out photos, then cut them out and adhere to page.
4. Add letter stickers for title, a punched heart and stamp date.

I'd love for you to play along in this week's challenge.

Find an image that sparks excitement for you and create a page based on that inspiration. When uploading your page, also show us your inspiration. I love seeing what inspires others! :)
