Ally's Circle Journal "Inspire Me"

Ally DT Circle Journal Full S

Ally DT Circle Journal Collage

Another circle journal for the Pink Pineapple Design Team. This page is for the amazing Ally, and her theme is "Inspire Me". What a great theme, right???

I find that there are so many things that inspire me.....but one of the biggest is nature, so I created this page with some of my favorite nature photos from the past summer. Honestly, how amazing are the pink Japanese Maple leaves! And how awesome is it to be walking through a thick forest, and see a single beam of sunlight streaming down into the branch of a tree!

I always try to add some texture to my creations, so for this project I splattered some magenta ink, layered some silver mesh behind the photos, used my sewing machine in a few places, and layered some white lace behind the Sassafras Lass trim. I also decided to made a homemade embellishment, so I used embroidery thread on white glittered felt to create an owl.....owls belong in trees.....and they are so beautiful!!!

Ally's art is always inspiring to me.....there is just something about the way she makes always find yourself excited!!! I hope my page for her is inspiring too!!!
