Inspiration Challenge 350 ~ LEIF

LEIF was founded in early 2011 by Stacy Anne Longenecker and is based out of Brooklyn, New York. LEIF set out to present the most special, beautiful things that add a unique touch to day-to-day living.

The LEIF lifestyle includes growing indoor citrus trees, matte pastels, a collection of vintage glass bottles that span the colors of the rainbow, old botanical and anatomical prints, Meyer lemon butter on freshly baked scones, various breeds of succulents scattered throughout the home, a garden full of vegetables, freshly cut flowers on a reclaimed wood kitchen table, idolizing Jean Seberg, slip-on sneakers and striped t-shirts on a Saturday.

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded five of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration.

The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from LEIF that inspired you.

I have invited Carolyn (snowmanqueen) to join me in making an additional card to inspire you.

Use the keyword: IC350 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

snowmanqueen’s sample ~ Cactus Queen

My sample ~ Tumbled Glass Sympathy

IC350 Gallery

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.
