Back in March, Ellyn and I headed out for our first "inspiration day" - a day to get out and practice photography and look for inspiration for our crafting. I recently created two layouts with some of the photos from that day, both of which began with one of my own Starting Points.
This first starting point uses blue and brown papers and a couple of strips of washi tape.
When I flipped to the photos of me and Ellyn at the Dallas Blooms, I knew they would work perfect on this layout. I added yellow as an accent color and love the way it turned out!
Here's a couple of detail shots.
I created this next layout with supplies from our local scrapbook store for a class I had planned to teach earlier this month. (Unfortunately, I had to cancel the class because I arrived home from our vacation with a case of shingles, which are all cleared up now. My energy level, however, has not yet returned to normal!)
I always have fewer portrait orientation photos than landscape, however I really like the look of this layout and will have to remember to turn my camera on its side more often.
Did you notice those cute heart embellishments? I made those with washi tape, using a technique from the Camp Scrap workshop earlier this summer - I'll be sharing more about it in an upcoming post!
Ellyn and I took a little break from our inspiration days over the busy summer, but I'm excited that we have one scheduled for September. What will you be doing for inspiration this fall?
