Hello everyone! Today is all about INSPIRATION! It is all around us…everywhere you look you can glean some type of inspiration …whether it be color, shape, line, architecture, etc. I usually start with something very simple in concept and then I just keep adding and it’s hard to believe what originally inspired me. AND…that is exactly what I am after most of the time!
So, let’s take a look at what my inspiration was….
I love.love.love this message board of mine. What do I love about it? I adore the distressed wood frame, the designer fabric, the upholstery tacks, the ribbon, and I especially love how it’s padded so I can use my pretty little pins to post notes and reminders on it. So….I wanted to translate that into a smaller piece that I could also add little notes to if need be…but I wanted to make it more of a work of art and put a funky twist on it….this is what I came up with…
Wayyyyy different right???!!!! But…note…I added my designer fabric with stick pins so I can add notes like I wanted. It also is built on a wood surface that I distressed with gesso and paints. I added ribbons on top, and note how I added the upholstery tacks to anchor it to the wood. This enabled me to slide the card in from the side for even more reminders or a cute photo…whatever I want. The little envelope on top can also hold a note or memento. I am tickled pink with how it came out. I started out pinning some vintage leaves on it with a glitter heart and a gold metal frame that is attached to a paper frame….what I absolutely LOVE is that I can easily change the look just by pinning something else to it! And this is one of our kit offerings this month….”Kisses: 5 Cents”. If you want to create one for yourself and at the same time learn a lot of different techniques please order yours today HERE!
