Inspiration From The Everday: Children's Books

With my two little girls, we spend many moments reading together. Some children’s books are real gems for their drawings and the stories they tell. I already took a lot of inspiration from children’s book to realize my layouts so I immediately thought about doing this to show you one of my everyday inspirations.

I chose a book entitled La colère de Banshee (Banshee’s Wrath) written by "Jean-François Chabas" and illustrated by David Sala. I love this colored and enchanted universe. It seems to me that this universe is itself inspired by one of my favorite painters, Klimt.

So I took my inspiration from the colors of the drawings to create this layout entitled "Smiles". I created a frame with superimposed flowers and buttons, just like the illustrator did in the book with his recurring colored circles. I also cut the wave of a Beach Bum paper to recreate the wave on the drawing. Finally, I wrote the journaling part like the way it is written in the book.

Getting your inspiration from children’s books enables you to create layouts using different collections. To make this one, I allowed myself to combine many different papers: Beach Bum, Saint Nick, Off To School papers with a Baby Mine Flocked Transparency and flowers and buttons from various collections.

I hope I succeeded in getting you inspired by my vision of this theme. Happy new year to you all and happy holidays!
