Let's Connect On-Line Crop

Today is the start of a fun on-line crop on the Two Scrapbook Friends Forum!  The Design Team, along with Carolyn and myself, have all created challenges based on different social media sites. 

We all love to stay connected! We love to share what is going on in our lives through our emails, blogs, Facebook pages, photos, etc. We also love to be inspired by what others share with us. One of my favourite places to go for inspiration is Pinterest! Pinterest is simply a Virtual Pinboard. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. But, best of all, you can browse pinboards that are created by other people! Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

To me, Pinterest provides visual inspiration. I can see a photo for something and be totally inspired to use something from that photo in one way or another. So that is what I have done for my challenge! I have taken a photo from Pinterest, showing a gorgeous colour combination, and I would like everyone to use it as inspiration to create a layout, card or project!

When I saw this photo, I was immediately drawn to the beautiful pink and green colours, with the hint of grey from the chair. So I used those colours on this layout.

The pink paper I used was a bit bolder that the pink in the photo, but that is the beauty of using a photo as inspiration. You can interpret it in any way that you like!

Because the photo has flowers in it, I made an accordion flower as an element on my layout.  Plus, I added a couple of decorative pins to the flower since my challenge is based on PINterest!  lol

I also decided to mimic the polka dots in the photo by creating little clusters of buttons and baubles in a couple of places on my page.

*A little bonus on my layout is the fact that my photos are from my niece's Facebook page!  I might not have seen these gorgeous photos of her playing the piano if she hadn't posted them on Facebook.  She of course gave me permission to use them. 

I hope you decide to join in the fun of our on-line crop!  Just pop over to the Two Scrapbook Friends Forum and give it a go!  The crop will run for an entire week, so you have lots of time to play along.  Plus, there will be prizes that you can win!

I can't wait to see what you create!  See you on the Forum :)
