Default February 24th - Inspiration Challenge

Welcome to day 24 of the Sweetest Birthday celebration of the year! I have a fun inspiration challenge for you today that will hopefully get your creative side flowing.

I love working with Inspiration Boards to inspire both digital and traditional art projects, so I made a fun board for everyone to play with today. All you need to do is create a digital page with Sweet Shoppe products based on what inspires you from the Board. (See, I told you it was fun and easy!)

Here is the Board:



You can be inspired by anything - don't overthink it! For example, you might create a page based on the overall design of the board, or the colors, the quotes (or part of a quote), elements that you see (flowers, leaves, arrows, stitching, etc.), the portrait, paint splatters, the notebook, text patterns, and the list goes on and on.

This is the page I created based on the Inspiration Board:



My inspiration came from the envelope, the text surrounded by a circle on the journal, the paint splatters, the quote, the flowers and leaves, the artsy portrait and the overall design of the board.

I used several of the "oh so awesome" mini-kits from the One 4 the Books Collection on my page. And while we are on the subject, here is the fabulous treat from Ru of Studio Basic that you will receive if you complete this challenge by 11:59 p.m. (EST) on February 27:



Don't forget that if you complete all 29 challenges, you can enter to win a $100 gift certificate to the Shoppe too!

To complete the challenge just post your layout in the Sweet Shoppe Gallery and in this thread by 11:59 p.m. (EST) on February 27 and tell us what part, or parts, of the Inspiration Board inspired you.

I hope you have fun with this challenge - I can't wait to see your inspired creations!

All of these challenges are such fun! This reminds me of the kids' game "telephone", how the pages can change so much from one page to the next. So here's my page, inspired by the splatters, flowers and indirectly the quote.

Ok emotional moment here...I saw the quotation on the inspiration board and my throat caught. This has been a line that pulsed through me over the past year as our family dealt with our daughter being bullied. I watched her spirit being crushed. There's nothing like a momma bear when her cubs are threatened. Those that could were amazing supports but there were still too many times when I stood helpless only able to comfort her assure her of who she is and who loves her. I know she's strong from her experiences. It was horribly painful. But this picture shows that fierce girl beaming, the return of joy, a newly strong young lady.
Thanks for this challenge. It was cathartic to work through some of these emotions that I wasn't sure I even wanted to scrap.

Inspired by the quote, so brought it the one that I try to live by so I don't get down on myself.
Used various parts of the awesome bonus kit of One 4 The Books.

What a beautiful page and touching back-story. I'm so glad your daughter in on the 'other side' of that terrible ordeal! Our son was bullied many years ago and as a parent, I understand your helpless feeling of seeing your child change because of someone else's actions. It's just so heartbreaking. Our son eventually found himself again and regained his spirit, but is something no one should ever have to go through!

I was inspired by the paint, inspirational quote and the overall layout of the board (which I noticed when I was looking at it after I finished my page).
I've been saying this quote to my daughter since she started kindergarten, as she has always struggled a bit with her own self-worth. She is coming to the end of high school next year and the choices she has to make every day now seem big and overwhelming, but she has become a wonderful young lady who makes good choices for the right reasons. I'm very proud of all that she has accomplished thus far and I'm looking forward to seeing what she accomplishes in the future!

I was inspired by some of the colors- peach, navy, grey, cream/white and the overall composition of your mood board (the large photo, smaller photo in the right corner and the flower clusters).

Thank you so much for hosting!!!!!

My inspiration came from the portrait, words, camera and paints...I threw in the stitching because I love stitching

I used the PBs from the birthday celebration as well as a few little things from Big Dreamer by River Rose and Meg Mullens.

The paints and shadowed elements were what drew me in and were my inspiration for the page I created.
