This week's Blogger's Challenge Friday theme is Inspired By. The idea is to find inspiration from something, or someone, and use that inspiration as a starting point for your own project. This is one of my favorite challenge themes because there is just so MUCH that can be used for inspiration!
Earlier this week I received the latest Pottery Barn catalog. On the cover is a delightful pillow and a couple holiday items wrapped up for the season. The pillow is covered with a fun house and leaf print fabric, done in cream, leafy greens and cranberry colors. I really love the overall design of the printed fabric, and thought I'd create my own little holiday scene using their fabric as my inspiration.
I sketched a little snowy house scene on white cardstock and painted it with Ranger reinkers. I think I've found a new favorite watercolor color! Ranger's LETTUCE is the color of green I used on the house and MY O MY, is it a GREAT color! It's fresh and chic!
Be sure to check out the other Blogger's Challenge Friday posts today as well! There's a list on the right -- scroll down a bit to find it. You might be amazed at some of the places people find inspiration! You might even find some inspiration for your own projects!
Have a beautiful Friday ... Yay! It's FRIDAY!!
