Doris posted this on the JBS Mercantile Forum for an inspiration challenge that ended last night. Just full of loveliness, isn't it?
Sometimes when I use a piece for inspiration, I'll stare at it for a while, then close it up, take out a journal and sketch some ideas. That way I don't get stuck in trying to copy the inspiration exactly. I end up with a lot more ideas and sketches in my journal that I can use another time.
That's what I did this time. The layout design, a center embellishment, and gardening theme were all in my mind when I scrapbooked this layout:
Homespun die-cut paper
Front Porch patterned paper
Vintage Sew-On Buttons
Stick Candy Ink Pad and Stick Candy Dye Ink
Doodlebug ric rac
Fern Stamps from Rubber Stampede
and these wonderful bits of pretty from the February Mercantile kit (one of my most favorite): the Doodlebug brads and May Arts Ribbon
thanks for visiting and have a creative day!
