Inspired By

What do you use to inspire you?  Is it another scrapbook page? Your favorite Bo Bunny papers and products? Your photos? Things you see online in such places as Pinterest? Magazine ads? Inspiration is every where.  Where ever you get your inspiration, I believe there can never be too many things to look at and be inspired by.  Today we asked several of the Bo Bunny designers to use the following image found online to inspire them.  Does it inspire you?  If so how?  We would love to see what you create!

Tara shared this about how the image inspired her layout: "When I saw this image it instantly reminded me of a vintage quilt. All the colours are so vibrant and the flowers, so feminine. I created this layout with these characteristics in mind. To mimic the pattern in the quilt, I added some stitching throughout my layout in a similar design."

Mahlin stated, "I was also inspired by the quilt look, but I chose to switch up the colors and I also wanted to create a more simple layout than I usually do to enhance the stitching a bit more."

Sam said, " I was initially inspired by the reds and all the patterns of the various fabric which is the reason I layered the patterned paper. I chose to use Alora as it contains the red but is not too harsh for this baby photo.  The chevron pattern made me think of the hearts."
