This week is an example of that.
Deb has started blogging recently and left me a comment. (Hi there!). Checking out her adorable blog, I found this post where she talks about an inspiration board challenge over at Melissa Phillips' blog (LilyBean's Paperie) based on photos in this post over at a creative mint. I was delighted at the combination of reds, creams, beiges and scrumptious vintage goodies and was overwhelmed by projects created out of this inspiration.
I have a couple of my own inspiration sites bookmarked such as Creature Comforts, Snippets & Ink and Write. Click. Scrapbook. Tumblr which are wonderful and gorgeous and a joy to look at, but here was a different approach. Not just look and marvel, but bring together your own collection based on the inspiration and then have fun creating.
And then this post at a creative mint took my breath away. Pink Whispers. Just the name is enough to make me swoon - and then there was this:
I'm not exaggerating when I say that I gasped with love. These are my colours. These shades of pink are what my dreams are made of. The touches of yellow and green complementing the most perfect pink I ever saw. And all of that teamed with white - pure, fresh white. This is honestly one of the most beautiful collection of images I have ever seen.
Not to mention the stunning photographs making me realise what a long way I have to go to reach the photographic goals I have in my head.
So, pushing feelings of immense inadequacy out of my head, I have shopped my stash and come up with a Pink Whispers kit of my own. (These short days and long nights make for really horrible photos but it's late and all I can manage right now - I need to fix up a better light for such photos)
I can't wait to get to use it tomorrow for my LOAD layout. Thanks Deb, for sharing, for inspiring, for dropping by.
