Tuesday Inspiration- One Day Later

Wednesday is here and I haven't blogged yet this week. Normally, I would have had posts scheduled or I would have blogged on the day of a layout reveal. This week though, my main focus has had to be my son and his homeschool work. Let's just say that I am very proud he wants to learn more about computer programming and  design, however, that whole bit is just not my forte. I end up pretty much taking the class and having him walk me through what he is doing so I can help him troubleshoot. That's kind of like the Guided study Critique class, but I digress. I am supposed to be talking to you today about the latest inspiration piece at Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. It's a Doozy with a capital D!

When I say it's a doozy, it is simply because I believe the image intimidated quite a few people. It's not your usual Pinterest photo and at first glance, you might not have a clue how to use it. I broke down the steps I used to determine what I would use from the image for my layout. My layout looks nothing like the swirling, brightly colored organic shapes in the image. Yet it has several distinct features all found within the image itself.

Oh My!! Look! I Did This... by Christy Strickler Supplies| Cardstock: Colorbok; Patterened Paper: October Afternoon, My Mind's Eye; Alphas: My Little Shoebox; Buttons: Basic Grey: Chipboard: Pink Paislee, American crafts; Mist: Ranger; Die Cuts: SEI; Other: pencil

I used colors and shapes found within the inspiration piece to compose my layout. How would you interpret the image for use on a papercraft project? I hope you will share a project at the SNR magazine gallery.

P.S. Some of the papers used for this layout are also in my October Counterfeit Kit.
