Using Inspiration

Below is an example of how Amy has used inspiration from Pinterest in her scrapbooking.

Amy says “I was drawn to a graphic of  home and the divided sections within it–each with a different color. See inspiration: The Psychology of Color.  Though I liked the graphic/artsy feel of this inspiration piece, as I began playing with the idea of the home I realized I wanted to capture more of a vintage charm.  Thus, I used this inspiration piece to created a house-shaped template that could hold my photos in each of the compartments and then accented it with several “found” and vintage style supplies that helped me to establish a cozy feeling in my page and that reminded me of being at home.
