March Challenge #1: May You Live In Pinteresting Times

This month the challenges are all based on the self set challenges that the newest members of the Master Forgers (Clair, Susan and Kelly) set themselves when they 'tried out' for the team.

Challenge #1 Base a project on something spotted on Pinterest. But, here's the twist, it can't be a craft project (so no layouts, minis or mixed media as inspiration.)

Instead look for inspiration somewhere new like Architecture, Gardening, Home Decor, Outdoors, Quotes or Science and Nature. Take note of colours, composition, lighting, fonts - there's all sorts of amazing inspiration to be found.

Clair's original idea came from a beautiful interiors shot full of cute frames and textures, which inspired this layout about meeting a blogging friend for the first time.

Susan's layout was inspired by a colorful geometric cross-stitched piece.

Leslie went to her own home decor pin boards for some chalkboard Pinspiration...


 And our Guest Designer Lesley was inspired by this photograph - visit her blog for more details
