For Your Inspiration! Challenge #1 !

The very first "For Your Inspiration" challenge is underway today over on the "For Your Inspiration Blog!"  Head over there as fast as you can to join in and see what the DT has come up with!  We'd love to have you participate and see your creativity at work!!  All the details on what you can win and how to enter are posted there! 

This is the gorgeous photograph to inspire you this week!  This was the first time I'd had a scenic photograph as inspiration, so this really challenged me -- I love that!! 

I started with black CS and smeared some Blush Rose and Ivory Colorbox chalk inks lightly across the bottom of the black panel.  I erased some chalked areas with a plastic eraser in rectangular patterns and then dotted them with a white Signo gel pen to simulate a skyline.  I then die cut daisy shapes from silver "mirror board" and placed them randomly on the black panel over my skyline.  I layered the panel onto Rose Red and Black CS.  I created a frame for my picture using some of the scraps of mirror board.

So what do you see in that photo??  Create whatever it inspires you to do and share it with us on the FYI blog!!  This challenge is open to all crafters and any medium can be used to create anything at all that the photograph inspires you to create!

I hope you'll join us!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

Anne, your use of mirror board (which is new to me) was a great way to relect (yes, pun intended-lol) the mirror-like buildings! Love your unique BG you created!
