Using Inspiration

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

Kiki says, “I love rainbows. To be precise, I love the ROYGBiV arrangement. I have most of my scrapbooking supplies organized in this manner and I even have a rainbows board on Pinterest. One of my first pins was an iPod advertisement of ipods arranged in an rainbow of colors — with paint dripping from each. It led to the following layout. I liked the columns of color arranged in roygbiv. The color dripping, breaking at the top from photographs. I kept the color dripping and the columns but I turned everything to it’s side to add interest (I think that human eye is trained to see drippings going downwards not sideways)

Kiki lives in Athens, Greece  and is a SAHM to a sugar & spice girl, a wife to an understanding and loving husband, and a creative spirit from the day she first walked.  In 2006 Kiki opened an issue of Scrapbook Answers Magazine and it was then that she knew she was hooked and she’s been scrapping ever since.

Kiki actually began as a digital scrapbooker because she found it difficult to find the products she wanted in her country. After a year or so of experimenting with Photoshop Elements/Photoshop, Kiki discovered the joy of online shopping and now she’s a  paper and glue scrapper and she’s not looking back!  Kiki enjoys finding inspiration wherever she can  including photos, everyday life, her fellow scrapbooking bloggers–and lately Pinterest!

Photos and stories, color and design principles, pretty paper and painting mediums are Kiki’s happy place!
