Default SIC119 (02/20/12) Inspired by Art

Sharon’s taking a break this week and asked me to host the Inspiration Challenge. I hope you’ll play along!

I came across an artist/designer named Aaron Christensen whose art inspired me as a scrapper, and I hope he inspires you too! He has art all over the web, but I chose the two sites below that have a wide variety of his prints.

For this week, the challenge is to browse these two sites and make a page using inspiration from the art. Please let us know what art inspired you.

Browse for Inspiration:

Aaron Christensen on Art.com
Aaron Christensen on Rosenberry Rooms.com


My Sample 1

Inspired by

My Sample 2

Inspired by

Check out the SIC119 Gallery here.

I look forward to seeing your pages ladies! As always, they can be paper, digi or hybrid!!! Please remember to add SIC119 and SBC12FEB (or whatever month in which you do the challenge) to your keywords so we find your pages. You can do all inspiration challenges any time -- no time limit!

Oh, and please post a link to your page in this thread, so we can ooh and ahh!

Have a wonderful scrappy day!

Wendy, do you have any suggestions for someone who'd love to try digi scrapbooking? I do use photoshop but have never tried this. Do you purchase additional software? I just didn't know where to begin. Thanks

Great inspiration- I just posted based on this link.
No Bicycles Allowed Canvas Reproduction by Oopsy Daisy, Canvas Reproductions, Art for Boys
It brought back some memories of two boys who rode their bikes anywhere including rivers! Thanks for the idea.

Yay, it was so nice to see your user name on the challenge thread. I do miss you on here, for sure! It would be awesome if you did a page, but I know you haven't been in the mood for quite a while now. You always make such original, fun pages!

Nice to "see" you, Candy!!!
