Arrow IC580 - Altered Diaries {01-14-17}

I have truly missed you all, and am glad to be back at Spiltcoaststampers.com this weekend! I've selected one of my favorite Etsy shops for it's creative approach "The Altered Diaries". The creative owner has such diverse taste in handmade books. Each one is an inspiration in itself, so enjoy!

My Box of Journals (Graphic45 Paper)

Challenge Goals:
Please 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 Altered Diaries" Etsy
site, and I'm hoping to post at least 5 inspiration genius awards too!

Use the keyword: IC580 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC580 Gallery



Note: For some reason I can't upload photos to the forum for the post. I will try again tomorrow.


For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded 5 of my favorites below. 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 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.

Welcome back, Audrie and thanks for the great challenge. Wonderful site today, and my mojo has been gone for awhile. It felt good to have some inspiration from this site to bring it back. Here is my journal....IC580, Monthly Journal by Holstein - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

This was wonderful fun. My choice from the Altered Diaries site caused me to go into vintage mode with very old parchment writing paper and matching envelopes from my vintage ephemeral collection. Enjoy, and thanks for the great challenge. TFL

Heart IC580 Oriental Thanks

Audrie- great site! I was inspired by the Geisha Card Blank Card and went with an oriental embossed panel from my stash, along with recycled dp, adding texture with my cardboard panel, baker's twine and fabric/brad combo. Used my carved heart stamp for my sentiment "shadow". Here's Oriental Thanks

Sorry for the double post. I tried to delete the above post, but couldn't figure out how. This link goes to the card gallery, not my blog.

I nearly did something based on the Paris images as I had some lovely papers from a friend at Christmas but decided to use this inspiration (https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/1090...home_active_21) and pulled out my airbrush to use with my Promarkers. I linked back with WT617 too.
