IC355 ~ Bella Soleil {09-22-12}

Inspiration Challenge 355 ~ Bella Soleil

This week’s Inspiration Challenge site was suggested by Barb ( Amisjag ) who thought Bella Soleil has lots of charm to inspire us all (remember, if you see an inspiring site … please send it my way).

Bella Soleil is a Store Designed to Evoke the Charm of Tuscany and the Comfort of the Mediterranean.

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 Bella Soleil that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC355 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

Amisjag’s sample ~ Vase Inspired

My sample ~ Ride’m Cowboy

IC355 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.
