Arrow IC486 - Umbrellas - double take! {03-28-15}

Spring is rather rainy in Seattle (and to tell you the truth I love the coziness of rain). So, to celebrate all of the people in the world who love the sounds and smells of rain, I've got a special surprise for you this week: You have the option of picking from TWO (2) different inspiration sites. I believe this might be the first time this was ever done (go ahead and call me a rebel-LOL)!

If you're a big fan of Pinterest, like I am, you might choose to be inspired by this delightfully rainy Pinterest board: UMBRELLA by Grazia Merio.

However, if you aren't such a fan of Pinterest, and you prefer luxurious website shopping, then you might find your inspiration on this site: Pasottiombrelli Luxury Umbrellas online store.

Please provide a link to your inspiration(s) when you upload your masterpiece though, so we'll know what sparked your creativity. (TIP: Click on the thumbnails to open them larger before grabbing a copy of the URL.)

It's 'have it your way' week, so please pick your pleasure, and then join me in some well deserved happy creative fun!

Challenge Goals:
Don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image on the board reminds you of it. Rather, take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on your impressions when you look through the images. Remember, it can just be the color palette or style that ignites your creativity. Whatever draws you to the designs, take the challenge of doing something uniquely inspired today .

Please remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by images from the Umbrella Board on Pinterest OR the Pasottiombrelli Luxury Umbrellas website.

Use the keyword: IC486 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC486 Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded ten of my favorites (top row from Pinterest, and the bottom row from the online store)..… so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS. Don't forget to let us know which photo(s) served as your inspiration piece please.

How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!

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.
