Inspiration from Joey - Spellbound
This month, Joey shows us how she converted one of her previous layouts into a Halloween page by using the Making Memories' Spellbound line.
Have you ever created a layout that you absolutely loved? Or one that invokes comments of beauty, appreciation, and maybe a little bit of envy? I think just about all of us have and that is where this month's inspiration comes from. I decided to use a layout that many people have liked (including myself), where everything from the picture to the embellishments just came together.
My "water" layout is one that I have wanted to mimic again, and after seeing the beautiful embellishments in Making Memories' Spellbound line, I knew it was time. Here is an opportunity to make things easy on yourself. You've already created the layout once, so copy it! I took exact measurements of my photo mat, edged with paints, used five decorative paper strips, and even the smattering of buttons. The overall look is quite different from the original, yet the layout is the same. This is scrapbooking to its greatest potential. Taking something that you like and changing up the colors can still be very satisfying, and for those of us who find ourselves a little short on time, not reinventing the wheel really pays off.
Thanks, Joey, for sharing your inspiration with us. What a great idea!
