That's such an important part of my scrapbooking which is just one of the reasons I LOVE CKC so much. They really get my brain whirring with their mini-challenges. What at first looks a bit difficult or maybe something that doesn't grab me right away, often turns into one of my favourites.
Mini challenge #2 is just such a challenge.
I first looked at the "be inspired by a character in a favourite TV show or book" and had no idea which direction to take.
And then I let it stew. And stew. And stew. And sure enough, it came to me. And I have created a page I love. Oh joy!
I am a huge Gone With The Wind fan. It's my favourite book and by far my favourite film. And so I let that be my starting point. Scarlet O'Hara to be precise. I thought about what words or feelings I came up with when I read the book (many many times over the years!) and decided on soft, feminine, layers, petticoats, lace, ribbons, pretty earring, wonderful homes, old-fashioned and antique and went from there.
Looking at the kits I have left out now that all the rest of my stash is packed away, I realised that I still have a lot of pretty product left in my June kit, Subtlety and decided to go with that one.
I started with cream and built up layers and die-cut edges, and pretty things and ribbon, and doily and generally just anything that seemed to fit. I created the whole page before going to my photos and looking for something that spoke to me.
This photo caught my eye and I decided to just write down what I had thought when I took that photo for a prompt.
This was a fast page for me and #6 from that kit. And I love how it came out.
Don't you love it when that happens?!?
So what character will you be inspired by? Don't forget to share over at the CKC site's Mr Linky (here).
