I wasn't always a doer. I started using Pinterest as a collector. I didn't really use my pinned images until I started organizing my boards. It took me a little time to get my boards more organized (still needs a little work). I had to think about how I would use the boards and compare them to how I use my supplies. For example, I had a board just for Layouts. It's full of scrapook layouts and I find it a bit overwhelming. I now have my boards arranged by motifs, colors, or specific thoughts. I have both layouts and inspiring images mixed together in those boards. I have a reason as to why I pinned those objects so I can remember what first grabbed my attention when I saw them.
This is a pin from my friend G at CraftOrganic. I love the colors and the fabulous texture. As I look at this photo, I can see a picture tucked in between the food sitting on the wood dresser.
Well, Hello! by Christy Strickler |Supplies Cardstock: Colorbok; Letters: My Little Shoebox; Doilies: Recollections, other; Buttons,Stencil: JBS Mercantile; Ribbon: Prima; Wood Veneer: Studio Calico; Paint: American, Inka Gold; Mist: Pink Paislee; Modeling Paste: Liquitex; Other: Glossy Accents
The image inspired me to break out my stencils, paint and modeling paste. I added a little pink since this layout is about our female cat.
I am inspired by a lot of people. Somehow, I managed to whittle down my choices to five boards I am inspired by on Pinterest. I shared them over at the Get It Scrapped blog. I hope you will check it out and if you are inspired, please share your layout with us in the Get It Scrapped Gallery.
