Stephanie is on a "get away" celebrating her anniversary with her husband! So I'm stepping in this week while she's away! (Happy Anniversary Stephanie!)
The web store for the Inspiration Challenge this week is "Outer Banks Trading Group"! They have "the perfect tropical and beach decor to spice up any room!" So, if you're longing for sunny days at the beach (or just a plain sunny day!) take a look around, and hopefully you'll be inspired by the many nautical themed pieces to be found there!
(And please remember, if you venture into the "Artist Gallery" section of this website, please respect the artist's original work and do not use print-outs of their art in your creation or directly copy the artist's work. Thank you!)
Use keyword IC278 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and use a comma between any additional key words you use. If you don't have time to spend browsing the website, attached are a few items from the store that you are welcome to use as your inspiration.
How to Play ~ View the attached sample images and/or browse the suggested website. Get your inspiration from the the individual items, patterns, theme or color pallets. Just enjoy wherever your inspired and creative journey takes you! Make the inspiration piece your own! Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong'! There is no time limit on this challenge and there are no rules. Explore and enjoy ~ be *inspired* to create, have fun, and share your artwork!!
Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.
FABULOUS, FABULOUS site, Anne!! There were so many directions I could have gone, but settled on a needlepoint pillow for my inspiration. Thanks for hostessing for Stef.....I'm sure she appreciates it....so she can have a romantic get-away! ; )
I love nautical themes! I immediately thought of my son-in-law's mother who is a sailer. But when I encountered a fantastic pillow, my thoughts went to my grandson, who loves playing pirates! Emilio's pirate ship
Got to play this challenge today, Woohoo!
