It's time again for '10 things on the 10th', a monthly blog event led by Shimelle Laine. If you want to see her post for this month, plus links to everyone else's (and maybe add your own!) then go to her blog post here.
This time I thought I'd list some layouts I've pinned on Pinterest that I'd like to scraplift, or use for inspiration. I love browsing on Pinterest but hardly ever remember to go back and check it for ideas when I'm making stuff, I'd like that to change! So hopefully over the next month I'll manage to use at least one of these for some ideas.
I'd like to really make clear that NONE OF THESE LAYOUTS WERE MADE BY ME. If you'd like to 'pin' them for yourself then please follow the link (the title / name) to the original site and pin from there, to give the artist their full credit (and page-visits!). I hope you find see something that intrigues you...
1: 'Out Of This World' by Heather Nicole Hess:
I pinned this ages ago, and I love how brilliant and layered it is, even without a photo. Plus it looks fun. It would be good for some stories of my kids that I don't have pictures for.
I love the photos pegged to the string, and the fact that the title is peeking out from behind a corner. I have to try this!
So many stunning details on this one, I like the fact the image is in the top at the centre, and looks all tucked away into the flowers. I like the ripped paper at the base too.
I discovered this one on an American Crafts blog hop. The messy style is really cool, I like the inky/painty bits and the big leaves.
This is just so cute, I love the big title, the romantic picture, the colours and the clouds. Enough said.
The bright colours on this are amazing, the page totally grabs your attention! I like the grungy but pretty contrast too.
A bit of a clean page for me, but I love the posed photo and the mix of fonts making the whole page part of the story. It makes a statement!
This has a couple of techniques I already love to use, eg the distressing, lace, and ephemera (I possibly learnt all these from Sian in the first place!), but I also want to try some more bits from this pretty page. Especially the circles and butterflies haphazardly stitched down, and the title on a tag.
This is one of the projects that made me desperately want the Paper Heart collection by Crate Paper. I like how Amy's used lots of straight scraps, and I love that the 't' of 'heart' is negative space.
I like lots about this layout, especially the multicoloured stitched border, with the journaling written inside, and the contrast of inky black dots against the colourful flowers. And a super cute photo!
So there we go. I hope you found some inspiration amoungst these 10 layouts I'd like to scraplift! Which one would you choose to take an idea from?
I've discovered whilst doing this that some of my Pinterest links were wrong, so I've tidied them up. I need to check the rest of my pins too now - that will be a big task!
I hope eveyone's having a good weekend, x
