Monday we had the first ever Inspiration to Creation LIVE! I’ve created Inspiration to Creation videos before, but this was the first time I showed my process live in front of an audience. I show you what inspired me and then take you through the process of creating a layout from inspiration to final creation.
We had lots of fun! Chatted, laughed, and of course…scrapbooked! If you missed the live version, you can watch the replay below. But first let me show you the layout I created!
- Design Inspiration: It began with an instagram of a washi feather. I mean, how cute is that?!? And then I followed the photo design of this layout. The rest just flowed from there. Be sure to watch the spreecast below for full details on how the design came together.
- Color Inspiration: I wanted the layout to feel like the outdoors. So I chose fun pattern papers with blue and green to mimic the sky and the grass. But without being to literal. I didn’t want to use cloud paper and green cardstock. Just a subtle reference to the outdoors.
The story of this layout is all the things my son is afraid of right now. His mantra has become, “I can be brave.” So I knew that had to be the title. I didn’t let the fact that I didn’t have the right letters stop me either. I just hacked some letters to get the A and the E that I needed. 🙂
In each of the frames I added something that my son is afraid of. Right now his fears center around birds, dogs, and BUGS! By using stickers, embellies and stamps I was able to fill all the frames with something that represented one of those things. I LOVE how it turned out!
In the journaling I tell not only the story of his fears but the story of how I got the photos. There was a bit of a mean Mommy moment where I scared him in an attempt to get a real photo. Good thing we could both laugh about it after. 🙂
