A Scrapbook of Inspiration on a Pink Saturday
I love to gather special things as I dream of what I might create. Using fabric that I designed to match my artwork, I created a rosette held together with an Antique cufflink, and softened with organza flower petals.
I found ephemera of the dreamy kind in my favorite Antique shops.
and lovely words of inspiration,
I thought I would create A Scrapbook of Inspiration for my little shop.
I created a twelve page scrapbook out of watercolor paper so that I could paint on the pages, write in gold and add little pockets with surprises.
I love little pockets with surprises.
Finding love letters dating back from 1800's were a find I had to share.
Pretty embellished bags were purchased at Nesting on Main, to hold some of their pretty tags too.
Favorite words that have inspired me are written throughout.
I have always loved to create journals and scrapbooks over the years.
Sometimes inspiration won't let me sleep until she has had me paint her dreams.
My first love has always been painting journals and saving cherished inspirations in a book. The song for this post is First Love.
Today is Pink Saturday and Bev from How Sweet The Sound is hosting another Pink celebration, so stop by and read all the pink posts.
Please stop by and visit Erika from Le Monde d'Erika. She lives in Europe and loves to create also, to paint, sketch, craft, wriet and design.
