February Inspiration Board Challenge

Are you working on your entry for our February Inspiration Board Challenge?

This month's board was designed by Renea, and it's perfect for the month of February - romantic, soft, and beautiful!


And this is Renea's gorgeous example for the challenge:

Renea says:  I decided to create a pocket journal that was inspired by the February Mood Board using the Scraps Of Elegance Kit~Lisa's Love Letters.
To capture the colors in some of the photos and the wood grain in the first photo, I created my pocket from the kit paper doing some texture work with a Tim Holtz Doily Stencil and the Deco Art Texture paste from the kit. I lined the top of the pocket and the bottom with some lace to get the lacy, soft look of the Third Photo of the dress, and then layered on some more distressed paper. I added some cheesecloth, a resin heart from a past kit, some feathers and then topped it with a little Prima Robin's Nest creating the look you see in the bird's nest photo. 
The foliage is some stash Scrapmatt's Chipboard that I hand painted and then tore apart and layered, topping it with a Prima Fifth Avenue Flower, and flowers from the kit and Floral Add On. I tucked in a little past kit "Love" Button and a set of 2 small Reneabouquets My Romantic Heart Butterflies in Pink.
 
If you haven't played along with our challenge before, you might not know how it works, so here are the rules - pretty simple!
 
 
1. The challenge ends Feb. 28th at midnight.

2. Create a layout, canvas, art journal page, or altered item, taking inspiration from this month's Inspiration Board: You can choose inspiration from just one of the images, or several of them. This inspiration can be the quote, the colors, the overall feel of the board, something in one of the pictures on the board - your imagination is the only restriction you have on this!

3. Upload your project into the challenge album in our Facebook Community (you must log in to Facebook first), and tell us in the photo description what you used from the board as your inspiration.

4. For a double entry - post your project on your blog along with the photo of the board and a link to the challenge, and put a link to your post in the description of your photo when you upload to the challenge album.

5. That's it!
 
A winner will be chosen on or about March 3rd, and will receive a $40.00 credit in our store (that's enough to buy a main kit of your choosing, or anything else you like - no expiration on the credit!).
Have fun!
