Hello Clique friends! It's me Valeska here today with a new post: Pinterest Please! Using Pinterest to find something inspiring is not a difficult task, I really love Pinterest and all the beautiful photos and ideas shared in there. But to inspire me in scrapbooking, sometimes is easier to look for something different other than scrapbooking ideas. I rather look for home decor, mood boards, collages, etc. Those photos are more inspiring for me to make the idea for the layout. This peach and blue mood board was my inspiration that I found in Pinterest.
In addition to the colors, I was also inspired by the triangular shape of papers, envelopes and pillows, and also by the flowers.
I sewed triangular cutouts from two patterned papers and a white cardstock with yellow thread, and then pasted the white cardstock onto another textured blue cardstock. The triangular cutouts are also glued to the white paper with 3D stickers to add volume to the page.
On the white cardstock, I applied gesso to waterproof the paper and then I used Distress Oxide with water (colors: Mustard Seed, Broken China and Faded Jeans) to give more color to the project.
Arranging the die cuts around the page, is one of my favorite part. I love adding flowers everywhere, I think you already realize that, right? Finally, when you think it's done, I always find time and space to use Nuvo drops...
By the way, this city is Guimaraes in Portugal and at the bottom of the photo you can see a piece of the Castle of Guimaraes. I really enjoyed this trip with my family!
I hope you enjoyed and felt inspired to create amazing projects with this kit. Make sure to join our Facebook group The Clique for more inspirations and prizes. Thanks for visiting today!
