Bella Blvd: Pinterest Inspired

We're sharing Pinterest Inspired projects over at the Bella Blvd Studio Blog today. Here is the Inspiration Photo...

I Love You 2

I was inspired by the photo in several obvious ways, such as the wood grain background, the stacked 'Love' title, and the hearts across the top. But, I also took some inspiration from the letters themselves by stacking 4 squares/rectangles with colors going from light to dark. I really liked the imperfect lines create by the threads where the colors blend, and tried to mimic that idea by off-setting the patterned papers. I also rounded the edges of the rectangles while keeping the corners on the squares, inspired by the look of the round 'O' against the other straight edged letters. 

Supplies:Daily Chevies: Pink Arrows; Kiss Me: Love Notes, Flutter, Alpha+Bits, Just Write Journaling Stickers; Play Date: Catching Bugs, Alpha+Bits; Snapshots: Alpha+Bits; Love and Marriage: Smokeys in Love, Esther Fleming Floral, Alpha+Bits, Wedding Day Miniatures, Just Write Journaling Stickers; Engaged at Last: Alpha+Bits; Sienna Chipboard Alphas: Pony, Frosting, Punch; Ciao Chip Elements: Stars & Hearts; High Five Alpha Stickers: Pink-Red; Designer Tape: Navy Dot; Button Market: Merlot Flowers

What I love about these types of challenges, are the many different interpretations that come from the same idea.  Head on over to Bella Blvd to see more projects inspired from the same fabulous photo!

LOVE this layout. I really like the color combo...always liked red gingham with aqua but the pink mixed in really brightens it up!
