Try It Tuesday~Inspiration Board

I learned about Inspiration boards when I took a class by Jenni Bowlin.  It has made a difference in the way I create and what I create.  I put things on my Inspiration Board that inspire me~it may the shape that I like, maybe texture, maybe because it is the coolest ~ you get the point, if it makes my board ~I like!!!


Funny what catches your eye ~ we all love and are inspired by different things.  I love primative country~it reflects in my home decor, my art, my scrapbooking ~everything I do.  I would rather have something old than something brand new~ Ok, there I said it!!

I really want to inspire you, to make a board for your "scrappy" area!!  I love to create around things that I love and enjoy!!!  My area is a reflextion of what I like.  I love to pin new inspiration on my board.  In fact I love it so much I made another board~

I'm ready for my next junk'n trip~ I have plenty of room to pin new goodies on ~can't wait!!!

This is some vintage material that I had just a piece of~but it spoke to me!! The flowers are so pretty and the colors are "my colors"!!!!

I will be showing a tutorial on how I made this in a few days ~ so find you a cool picture frame, felt and cloth and Helmar 450 Quick Dry {awesome stuff}and you will be ready.  This one was going to the dump and I rescued it { uh~can I have that?} ~the top one belonged to my paternal grandmother and it was in pieces when it was given to me!!!  See ya soon~have a good one!!!
