A Firm Foundation

Whenever I need a quick start to making a page, I turn to a sketch or a magazine ad. I like to collect them on my pinterest board. Sometimes I see an ad and I just know I want to make something with it. This was one of those ads.

I can look right at the ad and know just how the embellishments would fit in. The lady becomes a spot for a photo.The shoes become buttons,die cuts and brads. My text and title will fit in quite nicely.Be fore you know it, I have a completed page.

The page I am sharing with you today is chock full of inspiration.Not only did I use an ad, I also used the weekly inspiration piece from Scrapbook News and Review magazine. In the world of creativity,it's always ok to combine your inspiration.
