Bloggers Challenge Week 12 - Inspiration

It's Friday, and time for another Bloggers Challenge post. We've all enjoyed the inspiration challenges so much, that we've decided to have an inspiration challenge monthly - be sure to check out the creative challenge players blogs on my side bar. My blog readers are more than welcome to join me in the challenges - just leave comment in this post, with a link to where I can see your inspiration post.



For this weeks challenge I really had nothing in mind until today when I got an email from Archivers - I saw the Karen Foster Designer Series Paper, and thought - I could work with that!





Now I have an idea - where to I want to go with it? So, I start to rummage through my stash of alterable items and what do I find? This cleverly laid out frame, which gave me just the inspiration that I needed to complete my project.













I bet you'll be surprised to know, I didn't use Jolliest Time of the Year, but instead reached for my lovely Baroque Motifs set!


Here's my completed project - using the Karen Foster Paper and the Frame for my inspiration.

I hope you've been inspired to look at the objects around you in a more creative way!

Happy Friday, have a great weekend!

ETA - the grid frame shown above was just an inspiration piece, I had in my stash of alterables, my artwork is not put into that frame. The frame used above for my finished piece is an 8x8 shadow box frame.
