Inspiration Is Everywhere

Have you ever been inspired by your own work?

I find inspiration in many places, scrapbook galleries, YouTube, pinterest, Facebook groups, magazines, not to mention my boys, a piece of patterned paper, colors of the plastic bowls in my cupboard..... Never have I been inspired by my own work. But today it happened. I had a bunch of left over strips of paper from the last layout I posted sitting on my craft table. I kept looking at them and thinking I want to make another layout with those strips and I want to sew them down too. I started laying them down on some cardstock and it just came together.

This wasn't the first pic I chose for this layout but it fit much better. The flow of the paper moves your eye right into the flow of the hiking path. The strips were much wider when I started too but I trimmed them down and felt if worked better for my busy photo.
I used 2 different kits form Scraptastic Club for this layout. The strips of paper are from the June Sail kit and the embellishments are from the May Daylight kit.

I really enjoyed the process of this layout. I just let it work itself out and enjoyed going with it.
Thanx for stopping by and Enjoy Your Scraps!!!
