Using Inspiration

Below is an example of how Krista used Pinterest to inspire her own page. Krista says, “I used 2 Peas’ Black and White board as inspiration when creating my layout ‘Moments like this… make me smile.’  I was inspired by the graphic feel, clean lines and white space used in many of the pins on this board, I also loved the way the graphic fonts looked against black/white.  I love how great each of the inspiration pieces looked all on it’s own.  So I decided to make a very sparse layout, with minimal items on the page, but focusing on a black and white photo; as well as black font.”
