It's a great month and it comes with an exciting announcement. I am thrilled to be this month's guest designer with Dreamweaver Stencils.
There will be a theme to my posts with the "April Inspirations" challenge from Dreamweaver Stencils. Each team member and myself will post what inspires us in our creative life...maybe a Pinterest pic, a magazine pic, a quote, a book, a place, an artist, a crafter friend...along with our creation. We are hoping that you will feel inspired as well, and link your projects (and inspiration) to the inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog.
I would love to say that I have a favorite Pin Board or a go-to crafter for my inspiration today, but I almost always get my inspiration from the tools and supplies I'm about to use. There must be a little tickle when I see something that generates the design. Meet my gecko in the Rain Floor.
Here's a close-up of my little gecko gal.
All the paper has been colored with the use of my stack of monoprint paper made with the Creative Palette Plate and acrylic paint.
