Using Inspiration

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

Christy says, “My layout was directly inspired by this vingette showing a blue and gold leaf-patterned wallpaper backing up a textured blue lamp on a blue dresser holding pies.” (See inspiration.) 

 “I loved the texture of the blue on the golden yellow and to recreate that, I mixed blue paint with modeling paste. I sprayed some golden yellow mist and then applied the blue modeling paste with a stencil. In the photo, there are bowls sitting on a wood dresser. I used Inka Gold paint on a wood border. The doilies are circular and remind me of the bowls on the table.
