If you joined us Monday, I showed you this purse I found on Pinterest and said ...
"A few months back I found this purse and I pinned it not because I loved the purse but because I really loved the element ON the purse. I was drawn in by the movement the design created and knew I wanted to try this on a project or layout in the future."
I simply couldn’t pick just one element to focus on from the purse so I thought I would do a couple of projects. My first project is a card that is literal interpretation of the purse. I pretty much took the purse design and translated it directly onto my card. I not only focused on the elements but the color palette as well. The only addition is the added stick pin greeting on the right side of the card.
Supplies Used: cardstock Bazzill, patterned paper Crate Paper, corrugated shape Jillibean Soup, Martha Stewart punch, stamp Jillibean Soup, VersaFine Ink, Crate Paper/Misc buttons, Stampin Up scallop punch, brown ribbon Jillibean Soup, floral stick pin JoAnn’s and white floss DMC
Then I thought it would be fun to take what I really loved most about the design of the purse and translate it to a layout and that was the movement/flow. In my layout I created movement by weaving twine around a Silhouette cut title. I also used an owl shape as an anchor to the right of my title much the way the bird anchors the right side of the purse. The inspiration on my layout is much less obvious than on the card.
Supplies Used: cardstock Bazzill, patterned paper Crate Paper/Echo Park, alpha stickers Sassafrass Lass, number stickers Basic Grey, corrugated shape Jillibean Soup, Twine Jillibean Soup, EK Success heart punch, adhesive black rhinestones Bo Bunny, button jillibean Soup, decorative brad Crate Paper, Soup Label sticker Jillibean Soup, Making Memories stick pin, McGill Punch, Tiny Attacher Tim Holtz, Silhouette Cutting system/shape and font Traveling Typewriter downloaded from the internet
There is no formula for translating and idea to a project just follow what you love whether it’s a copy like my card or something a little less direct like my layout. Inspiration is everywhere you just have to look and keep and open mind (I didn’t pick the purse because I love it). Happy Crafting!
