Instead of being afraid, I could become something to fear. Welcome to the May Monthly Muse! Love them or loathe them, this month’s muse is brought to you by... drum roll... the inspiration board. For this week's Art Muse I challenge you to focus on word strips and word art. Personally, I love word strips. The titles of my art works are often derived from word art and word strips provided by our very talented designers. From the inspiration board provided, there are many Idea Sparks from the words on the board: Fairy Dust I really wish you were here Sunsets You are some kind of wonder You are the sweetest thing For the month of May, we invite you to gaze upon the Inspiration Board and pull from it. For this week, I challenge you to focus on WORDS. Challenge Requirements: 1. For the Art Muse, you may create any style of layout (ie. clean and simple, artsy, pocket style etc.), with or without a photo. Create any size page you wish. The Art Muse is for everyone! So, have fun and see where the Inspiration Board takes you. 2. You can use any products in The Lilypad store or retired products from current Lilypad designers, (just make sure you follow our gallery guidelines). 3.
