Welcome to another month of Inspiration Elevator!
Our main purpose here at IE is to challenge ourselves, each other and YOU to take the creative process to the next level; to inspire growth and change in our scrapbooking beyond the mundane.
You can see all of Inspiration Elevator's previous challenges at our blog and catch us on Facebook and Instagram (soon!) too.
This month's challenge is issued by the innovative Michelle Hernandez. Michelle's style is about telling the story with a clean and simple, yet artsy approach, an awareness of current trends, and garnished with her use of chipboard and often neutral colours. Here is her challenge for us, in her own words:
The challenge for June 15th is- make a public scrapbook page. You are making a page to go up at work or to give away to a family member to put up in their space. In your blog post you will tell us how knowing this page isn't going in a book or in your home changed your style. Did you go all out and make something that is 3D? Did you suppress your love of a particular color or product? How do you feel about the page being public- outside your regular audience of scrapbook lovers who read your blog or open your books at home?
My page is a Fathers Day gift for my husband and we popped (me and the kids) in a frame for him to have up at work. I started with a prima brick mask and spritzed it and then layered up lots of my Crate Paper DIY shop papers, trying to pull out the colour of the kids clothes in the pictures. I also used one of my clay frames that I made using air dry clay and some Martha Stewart molds to highlight the sticker that says precious. I love the frames for that more masculine embellishment, rather than flowers!
Here's a complete list of this month's participating designers! We encourage you to check out each designer's creation this month, then come on back and give the challenge a try yourself!
