Ideas, ideas, ideas! I purchased a bunch of magazines recently and WOW, they were packed with photos that springboarded into fab-u-lous ideas! It’s funny how a picture can launch an idea and I thought it would be fun for you to see all the inspiration.
Idea #1: Use my barnwood clipart for greeting card background.
Idea #2: Cut out this photo of wood moulding to decorate a greeting card or collage.
Idea #3: Cut this paper in a rainbow shape for a greeting card or collage.
Idea #4: Make a 10 x 10″ canvas with a gold star that is filled in with broken gold and silver jewelry.
Idea #5: Make a wire tree and construct a similar box to hide the battery pack.
Idea #6: Make a mixed media collage like this, however the tree will be necklace chains.
Idea #7 Make a mash up of this idea with the Anthropologie (photo below) inspired watercolor circles.
I found this image in the Anthropologie catalog. I like to do “Inspired By…” art pieces but I like mashing up these two ideas!
Idea #8: Folks can take a side view of their Mom, and make a profile of her head with a crown on it using black foam board that is painted with chalkboard paint for a Mom Chalkboard.
Idea #9: Squirt hot glue on my silicone mat like the red heart in this piece of art to make a “rubber stamp” for greeting cards or a mixed media collage.
Idea #10: Decoupage some tin cans with napkins using Dishwasher Safe ModPodge.
Idea #11: If I can find a cheap chandelier, cover it with twigs and mini lights.
Idea #12: A cool way to use up my kraft paper rolls I have had for about 15 years!
So I got all these ideas PLUS all these cool fonts for my collages and greeting cards! It was a fun morning tearing up the magazines and depositing what was left of them in the recycle bin about 3 hours later!
