Hey everyone! I have a fun challenge for you this iNSD weekend. I want you to check out The Lilypad Blog and/or the tutorials available in our Learning Pad Forum. Find something that sparks your creative juices and make a project inspired by that blog post or tutorial. There is so much goodness on our TLP Blog just waiting for you to explore … for instance: Anne has a post about how to use digi goodies for other fun projects besides scrapbook pages. Judie will teach you how to do a chalk sketch of your photo. Be inspired by one of Rae’s many photography blog posts and sharpen your photos skills and use the photos on your next page. Check out Monica’s post about phone apps that may help you with your scrap projects. And there are many, many, many more inspiring ideas to try on the blog. Use the Categories links along the right side of the blog to make searching easier! Our Learning Pad Forum is also a great source for inspiration. Pollys and members are free to share tips, tricks and tutorials at any time. If you want to learn something scrapbook related –this is also a great place to ask questions. We have the Why it Works series – that teach a technique, or get you to try out a page design idea as well as tons of other great tutorials: Dalis inspires us to use mirror images on our pages. Jan collected some tuts on the ever popular warping shadows that you can try and she has a really cool trick for using your own ephemera on your pages. I show you how to tint a photo here & here's another similar idea with layering and tinting the same photo on your page for an artsy look. Christa teaches you how to make your own custom newspaper element for your pages. Learn how to turn your photo into a beautiful watercolor image with Farah. Astrid teaches us how to get an oil painting effect. Gina shows us how to use the threshold technique for a super cool effect. Courtney teaches us how to animate elements on our pages and how to use QR codes! There are tons of other ideas and tips in this forum. For my page, I decided to pick something on the blog. I was inspired by Rae's Duplicating Clusters Blog post. And, I loved her layout so much I lifted that as well! Here is my page done on the iPad with the Procreate app using Just Jaimee's May 2019 Storyteller Collection: So to recap: Find something on the blog or in the learning pad forum that inspires you. Use that inspiration to make a scrapbook page, hybrid creation or other project. Follow the gallery rules and post your project in the gallery and here in this thread. Share the link (here in this thread) to the blog post or learning pad thread that you used for your inspiration. The challenge will close on Tuesday May 7th at 11am EDT. One random participant will be chosen for a $3 Gift Certificate. I can’t wait to see which blog post or tutorial will inspire your next creation!
